You lock gazes with an enemy, stunning them for a short period of time on a failed Will save (DC = 10 + Wisdom Modifier + your monk level). Any effects that modify your Stunning Blow or Stunning Fist DCs also affect this ability. Sightless creatures are unaffected by this ability.
- Kukan-Do may be the ultimate stunning ability of a Monk. Without having to make contact with the enemy other than line-of-sight, the Monk can effectively stun a single enemy through ki and their force of will. This ability is powerful, with many player reports showing it effective even against Epic monsters.
- Prior to Update 33, this ability was affected by Charisma, an ability stat otherwise unused by most Monks.
