    Shifter would be the natural progression but it is rather gimped.

    I see what you did there.

    That said, it's only the "progression" if you want to give up spellcasting ability for better forms...but the forms kind of suck until epic levels. I'd just go pure Druid and get the Bear animal companion (it's strength scales up naturally as you level) which gets you full spellcasting too.

    I've played a Druid/Monk before and it was awesome, only took a couple of Monk Lvls and rest Druid and dumped all stats on Wis and a little Dex (enough for Circle Kick) and Monk abilities work while shifted i think i ended up with 4 Monk 16 Druid.

    Dire Bear Shape are great but when you get Earth Elemental shape you slaughter (Monk speed & Wis AC bonus).

    In NWN2 there is a Feat called Natural Spell that lets you cast while shifted....running around as a Bear casting Call Lighting Storm :)

    Than Epic Lvls you can get better Shapes....imagine running around as a Red Dragon fully buffed (30 Wis requirement) absolutely decimating.

    Only down side it takes a few extra Lvl ups get Wild Shape.

    Just finished the main campaign with a half-orc Monk (16) / Assassin (2) and he was a beast. Things were hard until I've reached the second level in Assassin (for Uncanny Dodge), but from that point onwards I've steamrolled pretty much everything (including all the dragons that appear in Chapters 3 and 4). Not even a henchman was required.

    Made 100% of the quests and a lot of unnecessary battles like killing the Elk Tribe after pacifying it, or Klauth after giving him the green dragon eggs, or killing the golden dragon after giving it Klauth's head.

    The only two parts were I've struggled were the Peninsula District (because I was soloing) and the fire giants - and this just when more than one were attacking me, but both dragons at Morag's inner sanctum were slain without making him break a sweat.

    I'll start SoU now with some other character that I haven't decided yet, probably a Bard/AA, but if OP is looking for some powerhouse, I strongly recommend this one I've played. Just make sure you don't get Circle Kick, as it makes you constantly change target and is annoying as hell.

    Yeah it's not always best if your trying to focus down someone but it is an extra attack per round against a nearby enemy, maybe they should've made Circle Kick and other combat feats toggled abilities like in NWN 2 so you can turn on or off Power Attack and Flurry of Blows.

    Circle Kick should behave as an AoO. That simple.
