    Next melee dungeon crawl 12/4. Meet in PoK 8pm Eastern.

    Original Post

    Forming an unconventional single-box, monk-only group for xp and dungeon crawl. More groups if enough show. Will depart 8pm Eastern on Friday 10/1 from PoK to a mutually considered zone. Sebilis, Karnor's, Velks, Charasis? Have fun with fellow martial artists as we balance agro with mend. Where the monks at? Drop a note.

    edit1: Updated attempted monk party date to 11/6 (Saturday evening east coast)

    edit2: Successful melee group 11/6, ran around Sebs with monk 3x, rogue, ranger, and bard, and totally destroyed Crypt, Juggs, Jumpy and Prot. Next group open to bards, monks, rogues, knights, warriors, rangers, and beastlords, level 51+. Considering Velks, Charasis. Everyone was surprised at how far we were able to push things.

    If i'm around, i'll show up for this.

    We'll only get a full group if every monk on the server participates. We are a very sad & under represented class :(

    Each night I've been inviting online monks to come. Hopefully we will get a full group!

    Enjoyed just today the elsewhere-linked podcast where you discuss EQ, AK, and TAKP history. Monkly groups are great for anger, er agro management. Look forward to punching things with you!

    I'm still on hiatus for a bit longer, but if you're still doing this in a few months and I've had a chance to level up my mostly-geared monk I'd be interested. I remember enjoying an all-melee Karnor's group once back in the day.

    Would love to group with you again, Pala. It's been 10-15 years? Surely we can do this again. Hopefully we have a nice turn-out tonight.

    Group didn't happen. Too ambitious for a 1-week notice. Let's try again.

    There used to be a Monk only guild on the live server I started out on, it was called
    <Chi Gong Masters of Povar>.

    They eventually started letting in other classes as well and that's basically when the whole thing fell apart. It was always fun to see that tag though.

    So aye, I will come to the next one. For once the spirit beacons are lit and the monks are summoned, we shall answer with a fist and foot! And when our enemies surround us, the honorable art of playing dead shall be our answer...

    The more monks the better! Don't forget to bring some bandages my bretherenz!

    Friday after reset is typically raid time for guilds. You may have better luck organising this for a Sunday evening

    Yes some have said they will show. Log in and see what's up at 8pm Eastern (unless another time is better for people and they post enough to get a better consensus).

    8 Eastern, now. I'll hang out a while in case you log in. Not much traction though.

    The group was super fun and engaging. We will do it again, and stay flexible for other kinds of melee. Having the rogue, ranger, and bard was helpful, although we still had to hear about caster mama once or twice. But someday still want to see a six monk group!

    Had a blast Polly, thanks for organizing! I wasn't able to get the screenshots posted here but I'm going to throw them up in the #lfg channel on TAKP's discord if anyone wants to see!

    I'd encourage anyone who's able to come out next time, it was a blast getting to do something different!
