The Monk is a class option for the Scout archetype, available to all scout Heroes. It is one of the first Hybrid classes, first introduced in The Chains that Rust. It hybridizes with any class belonging to the Healer archetype.
As a hybrid class, it gets a limited number of skills itself, and cannot gain the high-end skills of the class it hybridizes with. For example, were it to hybridize with the Bard class, the Monk would be able to purchase any class card of the Bard class (as well as any class card of the Monk class itself) except Cacophony or Wayfarer, since either of those would cost 3 experience points.
The Monk's starting equipment is determined by the healer class it hybridizes with. Like other hybrid classes, it only receives four skills on it's own, the rest of it's skills dependent on the class it hybridizes with.
