Can you retrain Monk Ki Powers?

Post by wingnut20x6 » Sun Jan 28, 2018 8:21 pm

In retraining, it offers a list of things you are allowed to retrain by class, and under Monk it only states "see retraining feats." This makes me believe that you cannot, but many others are aware of more FAQs/erratas than I am.

Answered my own question, sorry. Ultimate campaign came out 2 years before Unchained, so monks wouldn't have had choices for ki powers at that point. I will follow the guidelines similar to a Paladin's mercies, if I want to retrain a level 4 ki power, it needs to be one I had access to at that level.

No, you don't have to have been able to take it at 4th level (there was a FAQ about that but can't find it). I've heard of L10+ rogues retraining a lot of regular rogue talents for greater rogue talents

Right, I was just thrown off by the fact that other classes, like Pally and Ranger, each have all the specific things you can retrain listed out by class, where monk didn't. Took me a minute to realize that option didn't exist when the book was written.

That FAQ is pretty important, as Ultimate Campaign explicitly says the opposite.
