Nobody Saves the World Monk guide


The Monk is a nimble and powerful form in Nobody Saves the World. His Palm Pummel not only restores Mana but also builds up Stun on enemies, which is always useful. It does require charging, so remember this as you position yourself near enemies. Smite is a great passive ability as it strikes enemies with a lightning bolt occasionally, dealing extra Stun. Holy Light is particularly useful against a swarm of enemies that surround you, and even more so if they have a Light Ward too. Use it when Palm Pummel won’t get you out of trouble. Bless Me is also useful as it essentially allows you to heal 20% of your Health. It’s always useful to have as a backup if things get desperate, just note the long cooldown, so you aren’t invincible with it.
