Yumi V's Riku

Is Yumi a key player? I quite like her and her slam/throw attack but am looking to trim the sails of a 42 rice list by a point to pay for prayer beads for Aiko.

Is Riku a cheaper alternative? Parry 1 plus +1 damage but no slam/throw....

shall I forget the beads and let Aiko go it with only 1 blessing per turn rather than 3 per two turns AND keep Yumi or go with Riku?

advice please

Riku is my 2nd favourite monk, and I feel he is criminally underused.

It always goes to tiebreakers.

Agree /A_Palmer 4MS plus Parry(1) on a defensively SA/SD Monk on top of the toolboxery he brings is very versatile. Yumi is more of a fighter.

Suchiro's my favorite.  Just because.

yeah Suchiro kicks ass!

But After him and Master Po, and think i'll with Kenko or Rikku - kenko if you wanna kill some stuff, Rikku if you wanna defend and play control a bit

(his wave thing can be really useful when it works)

On the subject of Kenko - North Tree worth the upgrade? Looks like it should be

From what I can see, he's certainly worth his rice.  He's basically a weaker version of Po but helps out he warband a bit more.
