Armor Class Bonus (monk)


Monks get a stacking bonus to their AC:

  • A passive Wisdom bonus equal to their Wisdom modifier, while unarmored and not using a shield.
  • Centered bonus at levels 2, 5, 10, 15 and 20 (3, 6, 9, 12 and 15 AC) unarmored, wielding ki weapons and not encumbered.

The monk wisdom (and class) bonus to armor class should essentially function "by the book". This bonus should be lost if wearing any armor, using a shield, or encumbered. It does not check for ki weapons however - it's less restrictive than the monk abilities that require one to remain centered.
