"Spiritual, Turtle like creatures, their spells harness the power of Wind and Water. Effective against Fire creatures and they can heal themselves or their party to help in the continued fight. But never underestimate their Drunken Kung Fu when things get more intimate."
Monks have interesting capabilities. They have spells which can heal both themselves and other party members. They also can pull off combos, or strings of spells which can result in them being able to make multiple attacks to an enemy in the same turn AND heal. At a higher level, they gain access to a Revive spell.
See Monk Spells for a full list of available spells for Monk.
Monks use Staffs for battle.
