Just to verify, the die & reraise method still works. ^^;

Went in as a lower leveled NIN, got to the area with a couple Tonkos... Used a reraise earring, spawn the NMs, ran a little and got killed... Let them walk back to the tent (They didn't respawn in the couple minutes I waited, but they were far enough away).
Got up, went to a different flap, and got the scroll. :D

I like these, i notice a bit more of the mobs missing and also me evading some more of their attacks.

Fuma seem nice but I like the AF much better. I cant wait to get full AF and then eventually get the stuff to make +1 AF

As a Mithra, I've got nothing but love for these babies. I can ditch a Deft ring for another Puissance +1, and swap these babies out with my RSE (finally..). The only thing you lose is a) kick strength vs. Kung Fu's, or b) 4 HP. I'll take that trade for +Light, +dodge, and some actual defense on my feet, thank you.

I personally used them even at L74 and they still worked great for me, though there were obviously better choices. I only replaced these as my main boots when I got Dune Boots (Slightly lower defense but incredibly powerful kicks). I used Fuma Kyahans a little when I was L40-65ish.. but I really thought that these boots were a bit better, not to mention free.

MNK's who wear Fuma over Kung Fu Shoes aren't really MNK's.

They're just idiots.
#Kirenanumbertwo, Posted: Feb 20 2006 at 11:56 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) you're the idiot here 3% haste > +30 to kick attacks befroe 71 with kick attacks 2, +30 to a job trait that activates twice a fight sucks compares to 3% haste

being the owner of both I can tell you right now Kung Fu > Wulong line is MUCH better than Fuma. While I would not spend the money to buy Kung Fu if you can any MNK who wears Fumas or their high level equivalents is a idiot.
My choco is faster than yours :p
hmm competition?

I have my mind set that i am going to get the Kung Fu shoes that drop from the NM in West altep. My 67 DRG friend is going to help me kill it until we hopefully gert the drop ^^. But i am wonmdering: Are the Kung Fu Shoes better than Temple Gaiters? i think they are... Also they make me look rich and pimpin.

Meh, honestly the boots are decent at best, but still better than Fuma in my opinion, the addedd dodge is well... not very helpfull, the Dex is nice, and Vs. higher end NMs, which enjoy spasming light-elemental moves, these are a god send. On another note, the quest is DIRT EASY, these are about 10X easier to get than Fuma. Here's what you do: Grab some one who has sneak/invis and knows the way to Fei'yin (if you don't, that is) go to the Qui'bia arena (sp) then zone out to Fei'yin and recieve a CS. Then there are two ways of doing this, one in which you die, in another of which you don't. Death way: Grab some prism powders (or sub WHM if it's 25+) and a scroll of instant reraise. Head to F-7 in Davoi, and find a 'Hide Flap' on a tent, the location is random. Examine the 'Hide Flap' and then hit your reraise scroll quickly. Two Orc NM's will pop, and kill you. Wait 'til they move away, then allow yourself to be raised. Find the 'Hide Flap' again, it will be on a DIFFERANT TENT. After examining it and recieving the scroll {Run away!} Non-Death way: Grab a couple friends, people who can take a hit (I had a 60 Galka MNK and a 60 Mithra PLD) find and examine the flap, tell the two 'Kiters' to voke, or grab hate from the two orcs, and zone (Two are not needed, but it's very helpfull) then, you find the new 'Hide Flap' (Which has moved) and {Run Away!} or, the way the game tells you to do it... Get about 5 55+'s, one of which a RDM or BLM (to sleep) and make the orcs pop, tell the RDM or BLM to sleep the PLD, while you kill the MNK, when the MNK is dead, kill the PLD, Voila, congrats, you have Temple Gaiters!

I didnt really find Fuma Kyahan to be any better then these.The 3% haste really makes no difference by itself and being an elvaan i am stuck wearing a life belt so for me our AF2 is better.Besides these so are so good looking =P

I can see why wearing these boots with no other haste+ equipment can seem a little bit of a waste, but with brown belt (which in my opinion is extremely better) your haste goes up to +12%. If you want to have the best equipment, save up for some ring slot ACC+ gear and make use of the haste+ gear we mnks get.

Granted I can see why you don't prefer Fuma, but to really see a difference, you need to parse with the boots on and with them off. You also need to test for a long time. The 3% isn't going to be totally noticable right away. You need to have them on for a long time and see the difference over time.

The gaiters are better because even though the fuma might do more over time if you're in a good exp. party you shouldnt be fighting mobs that long.
