Merrick the Monk
14 January 2016 at 7:04pm
Here is the final version of my HoF Warrior Hero, Merrick as I have now completed the Team battle in DQ3.
I never switched careers with this Hero. I found the Monk to be a better choice than the other two options I was presented with (Drake and Titan). This Hero breezed through nearly every fight and even did the lion's share of the work in the Act 3 Team Battle (thank you, 'Disrupt'!); this despite having missed an opportunity to boost my 'Meditation' ability and not being able to locate a final upgrade to my Main Hand Fist Weapon (is there one? - I found an upgrade for the Left Hand Fist Weapon in Act 3 but not the Main Hand..).
Anyway, here he is. I can't emphasize enough how much I enjoyed playing this Hero. Monks rule!

I swapped the 'Blood Soul' Talisman for 'Loki's Promise', losing 1 Brawn and gaining 5 Health. I also lost 'Weaver', replacing it with 'Trickster' and 'Charm'.
So there we have it - the completed Hero (still my favourite by far! )
