Special Traits

  • Devil’s Sight. Magical darkness doesn’t impede the wang liang’s darkvision.
  • Fists of Dark Flame (1/day). The wang liang monk wreaths its fists in flame. It deals an additional 7 (2d6) fire damage when it hits with its Unarmed Strikes for 1 minute.
  • Poison. Whenever the wang liang hits with a Bite or Unarmed Strike attack, the target must make a DC 13 Constitution saving throw, taking 14 (4d6) poison damage on a failed saving throw, or half as much damage on a successful saving throw.
  • Slow Fall. The wang liang monk reduces any falling damage by 30. If it does not take damage from a fall, it does not fall prone.


  • Multiattack. The wang liang monk makes three Unarmed Strikes. It can use its Bite attack or Flurry of Blows ability in place of one of the Unarmed Strikes.
  • Unarmed Strike. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d6 + 4) bludgeoning damage.
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d6 + 4) piercing damage.
  • Flurry of Blows (3/day). Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 14 (3d6 + 4) bludgeoning damage, and the target suffers one of the following effects of the monk’s choice: The target must succeed on a DC 15 Dexterity saving throw or be knocked prone. The target must make a DC 15 Strength saving throw or be pushed up to 15 feet away from it. The target can’t take reactions until the end of its next turn.


  • Deflect Missiles. If it has one hand free, the wang liang monk can use its reaction in response to being hit with a ranged weapon attack. It reduces the damage by 16 (1d10 + 11). If it reduces the damage to 0, it can catch the missile if it is small enough for it to hold with one hand.
