This is frustrating...
A vile kelki prowler slams her tail into your leg, knocking you to the ground with a sickening
Health Lost: 4045, blunt, none
You have been slain by a vile kelki prowler.
This is just one example of this but it happens fairly frequently. Monk audit is odd to me when I look at other classes because blunt damage is our lowest resistance (not counting spirit/shadow). I have enhancement(3), con(2), a protection amulet, wearing armor of course, sip(3) etc. I've played a couple of other classes that I have no artis at all on and can bash just fine.
So to my idea.... Even with artis the audit is the problem here. Toughness (kaido) currently increases cutting damage resistance so have it increase blunt as well. I get that numbness/transmute is our main defense but audit should be at least high enough to allow us a chance to use those defenses. Currently, even with my defensive artifacts, it's not and for a monk with no artifacts it's pretty ridiculous.
