Notes

  • According to Combat Initiative, most monsters have a point where your bonus initiative will ensure that you can attack first. Once that point is reached, it will be beneficial to replace the configuration above with other equipment instead.
  • Gaze of the Trickster God is an intrinsic effect that requires the Juju Mojo Mask to be equipped and a combat item or moxie-related skill used in combat to activate.
