Monk can heal other troops and the Hero in battle but it can also attack the enemy with its Shillelagh when it is in close range.
Monk is the second-last troop to be unlocked. It is a versatile troop and can be used for any situation. It can also attack Firebolt and Lightning Towers. It heals surroundings when friendly troops or towers are damaged. Mad Monks have a higher healing rate and other benefits. Monks do not have any specific listed weakness or resistance but in gameplay, they seem to be a little weak to fire damage. Monks apart from mortars are the only troops to be hit by cannons in offense.
