Very true, tigerknee, but 80% resistances is too powerful in my opinion. It basically makes you able to tank meat men and zombies extremely high levels above you. Unfortunately 75% seems a bit weak, considering how bad they are right now.
3/4 resist and 4/5 resist is a substantial difference for really high hitters (namtar, Avatar, Bleaty).
How about making double regen and 50% resists into one diamond body ability, changing hand to hand into no attack bonuses from items, and make discipline +10 item costs and a slight conversion bonus (+10 every conversion), thus embracing the actual reality of monks not using items or having possessions.
I speak chaos.
