D&D: Best Race for Every Class: Page 8 of 12

D&D Best Race
Elven rangers are a common sight in the D&D universe.

8. Monk 

Best Stat Based Choice: Human, Aarakocra, Halfling

The Monk Class was created primarily out of respect for so many awesome Kung-Fu films from Asia, showing the amazing powers of monks to deal with all manner of mythical beasts. In the game, monks are aspirants to spiritual awareness who use their physical exercises to find spiritual perfection. 

My choice: Monks tend to be a difficult class to play because, at the lower levels, they can't use weapons or armor and have none of the benefits of a higher level, just like halflings! For this reason, halflings, with their +2 constitution and +1 dexterity to keep them alive and armourless, they are excellent choices for the monk class.
