Paizo Previews Monks in Pathfinder 2.0

Confession: I never played a monk in Pathfinder. But I did play one in 3.5. Man, they were awful there. So, since Pathfinder played heavily with the OGL from 3.5, I never gave them a look.

And as a class I was always interested in playing, but didn’t want to just hamstring my character, I’m interested to see what changes were made. And in this preview, I get a look at some of them.
