To defeat the inhuman evils they pit themselves against, monks draw upon inner reserves of Spirit, a resource that reflects their personal mastery and training.
Spirit replenishes slowly. It is generated in two ways – by specific skills and attacks, and by the completion of combos. Monks who chain their attacks carefully can continue a near-endless barrage of Spirit-fueled strikes. Spirit Stones, Daibos, and Fist Weapons may also spawn with affixes that can either regenerate a Monk's Spirit reserves, or even restore their health when they expend it
Spirit is a valuable resource, but massive expenditures of this force allow a monk to call upon potent dodges and defensive moves, as well as monster-slaying finishing strikes. Thanks to monks' physical perfection and martial talent, they are free to deliver as many empowered strikes as their Spirit pools will allow – without waiting for ability 'cooldowns' most of the time. Exceptionally powerful moves such as a Seven Sided Strike, however, do need some time to recover.
