Stance of the Fierce Tiger is an offensive stance for monks, increasing damage done by 10% and the amount of Chi generated by [Jab] and [Expel Harm]. It also affects [Tiger Palm], [Blackout Kick], and [Rising Sun Kick].


Tiger Stance is the first stance available to a monk, and is known at the time of character creation. It is the only stance available to a monk until level 10, when [Stance of the Sturdy Ox] can be learned by specializing into Brewmaster, or [Stance of the Wise Serpent] as Mistweaver.
