Anubis fisting from 65-90 isn't too terrible. Afterwards though it gets really expensive. Don't get it twisted though, you will need more than 20m of gears and potions to complete this.
Go combo if you're looking for the cheaper lifestyle.
Battle priest best farming class for poor noobs IMO. Go to Carat, farm a card, sell it, have more money to work with for a monk. Farm another one and keep it. Make a +5 Double Hurricane Stunner on the cheap, get a bathory, cranial and poo poo and you should be okay for Anubis.
I'm not sure when monks became not too expensive to gear though.. Mine wears a bil worth of gears and i'm a broke nub scrub...
+9 Double Hydra Stunner - 150m+
+9 Carat Rideword Hat - 350m+
+9 Firelock Shoes - 250m+
Frilldora Hiding Amistr Bag - 200m+
Immune Hiding Amistr Bag - 50m+
I would not recommend a Monk to anyone that is not prepared for it. On top of the above and off the top of my head, I carry into WoE:
+7 Unfrozen Silk Robe
+7 Deadly Silk Robe
+7 Unfrozen Mantle (In case the silk robe breaks)
+9 Cranial Mad Bunny Guard
+8 Triple Dextrous Solid Wahgnak
Insomniac Telling Doll
2x Acolyte Figures
Soul-Enchanted High Fashion Sandals
As far as MVPing, you can probably get away with a +5 Double Titan/Hurricane Stunner but you'll want a +9/10 Double Liberation Stunner which is over a bil alone...
If you don't plan to WoE and don't plan to MvP, a monk is one of the worst choices of characters as they are terrible at PvM. Even more so with nerfed occult you can't even grind away at Turtles. So like the previous person said, if you're looking for a fast leveling character, this is not it.
Go back to looking at Trap Hunters. They can WoE, PvP, PvM, MvP all on the dirt cheap low.
