Which really is better, AF or Kote? I have the Kote, they cost me 530k way back when and now they're at 1.5 million. The AF gloves are free. Judging from how much arguing there is one which piece gives more DoT, i'd say these two are pretty dead equal overall. Now given that, it makes the most sense for me to sell the Kote, use my AF, and spend my extra 1.5 million on other equipment slots which don't have pieces I can get for free that match the expensive alternative.

If you're rich, keep both AF and Kote because Attack and STR work better in different situations. If you're like me and trying to find out which is better, and don't have millinos to spend... go with the free stuff!

So go with being a gimp? 4str is **** vs 20atk ANY way you look at it.
Let me guess, you wore Garrison hose over Rep Subligar too?
No.

O.Kote for melee and WS, Temple ONLY for Boost. Wearing ANY MNK AF full time is gimp.

Some people might be curious which is the better choice. Obviously we're not going to forego getting these in favor of the Kotes; then we wouldn't have full AF. ;) But to be honest, lets compare them.

Kotes = Attack +20 (and light resistance -8, which is pretty damned noticeable when the mob casts banishga 2.). The attack raises your highest potential damage, but doesn't necessarily increase your TOTAL damage, esp against shelled mobs.

AF gloves increase your boost rate, and it would seem its an extra 5% on top of your original 10%, though my math could just be off. The STR+4 is nice as well, as it increases your BASE damage, but if you have low STR as it is, +4 won't help you much. in the 50's and early 60's we're killing shelled mobs, and we need as much +STR as possible to get through their defense, but post 60 I hear its bones, bones, bones.

In essence, it all goes back to the same thing: If you simply want to increase your maximum potential, then by all means, equip the Kotes and love yourself. but if you want to increase your minimum as well, add as much STR as you can get. Melee can never have enough STR anyways.

At any rate, the general consensus is this: Play the game however you want. try it all out, get a parser if you want. I've seen my attack with the Kotes range, on beetles in Garliage (48-51, bottom floor) range from 45-85 per fist, with an average of about 55. With +STR gloves (Ogygos, +5 STR) my average jumped to 58 per fist, but I never hit for more than 70.

So its your call. You wanna hit like a DRK, equip Kotes. You wannt hit like a Monk? Switch off between the two.
Well...

I'd say switch between these and the kote. Equip these for boost stacking and Chi Blasting before your party pulls a mob. Then switch back to the kote for the normal mob.

These make your boosts do like +30 attack! And the +str helps you do more consistant damadge. Not to mention they are dead sexy. ^^

"the STR 4 prolly is equal to the Attack + 20"


2 str = 1 atk
1 str = raise in minimum nand maximum damage that can be done (unknown numberwise)

only a poor player or one who thinks its impressive to have paid 800k+ for a item not worth 400k would use Kotes over this.

past 50 +20 att can be gained elsewhere... STR is always more important.
