Q: Dear Sage,
My monk 6/cleric 4/sacred fist 10 has a base attack bonus of +17, which is higher than the BAB of a 20th-level monk. When I use flurry of blows, how many attacks do I get?
A: A 6th-level monk gains one extra attack when using flurry of blows, and all her attacks take a –1 penalty. Thus, your character would have five attacks (+16/+16/+11/+6/+1, plus other modifiers).
About the Author
The Sage is a mammal classified in the bear family, Ursidae, native to central and southern China. Debate continues as to whether he is truly a bear or more related to the raccoon rather than the bear, or perhaps in a family of his own. When not eating bamboo and answering rules questions, he works under the nom de plume of Andy Collins as an RPG developer in Wizards of the Coast R&D, where his development credits include Complete Mage, Dragon Magic, and the Player's Handbook v.3.5. He can be easily recognized by his large, distinctive black patches around the eyes, ears and on his rotund body.
