Iam reading through all these posts and seeing people whining about losing their brown belt.........are all of you &%#$ing retarded? It's honestly not a huge deal....go do the quest,get the brown belt,turn it in,and if your someone who deserves a black belt in the first place,or has the knowledge and skill and time-invested to be a part of an endgame shell with the capacity to either claim land kings,or run KSNM's or both...then hopefully youll know enough about the game to farm enough measely gil to buy another one for your capped missions(especially after the economy collapse). Capped missions are probably the LAST thing you should be worried about if your going to go after a thing such as this.

The new KSNM99s are a god send for getting this belt. I've had they Wyrm Beard for months now and was still about to give up on the belt due to how heavily camped the other two HNMs are. However, our LS was doing KSNM99 runs of Chlevnik (KB) and I got a B.tongue. O.o

Tomorrow, we're doing the Hills are Alive KSNM99 for an egg. I "might" have my precious by tomorrow evening! Holy hell I can't wait. LoL. Now if those f'n destroyers would finally drop. >.>

And seriously are people worried about not getting the gil from Brown Belt? That just floors me. That belt is insane for it's level, but this belt is insane for any piece of equipment of any level.

that KSNM has a crappy drop rate on the egg i've heard...which is kinda....sad considering that SE made the items only drop from these or the overcamped and massively botted King Behemoth and Adamontoise/other NM whose name i cant remember.... and i'm kinda glad these cant be sold...cause that makes ppl have to earn them, rather than allow the @#%^headed gilbuyers to just run out and buy enough gil to get the item, and then prance around showing it off, like they do with most other really good, really expensive items

Got this beauty two days ago.
It was definately worth it.
Got Tongue from KS99, Egg from NQ adamantoise and Beard drom Nidhogg. Took me about half a year to get the items. Quite pleased with it :D
It's one sick piece of equip, and everybody that is doubting to get it, case he will lose his brown belt should get slapped over the head with an axe.

I've noticed that tons of people hate the fact that you have to trade in your Brown Belt to get this one. I'll admit, at first I did as well, but then I found a nice way to rationalize it.
What it literally is, is trading in one piece of equipment for a much, and I stress MUCH better version of it. It's like someone asking to trade their Scorp. Harness +1 for your Scorp Harness...except the difference between these two belts is much greater then a simple NQ-HQ comparison.
You'd have to quest the Brown Belt to get this belt anyway, so technically you're not losing any money at all, if that's your problem with this trade.

As far as the previous post goes, I have this to offer:
-My CoP static consists of DRG, MNK (me), WHM, PLD, SMN, and the 6th switches between their RDM and SMN depending on the mission. We're doing just fine, in fact we absolutely conquered Promy-Vazhl two days ago. MNK isn't a hinderance whatsoever, and I don't even have O. Kote or Jujitsu Gi to make up for whatever percieved shortcoming a MNK would bring in people's minds. In my CoP experience Hundred Fists was a fair deal of help, so I can say from personal experience that MNKs do NOT bring down a CoP group.
-As far as wanting to keep it for capped things, you're gonna have to make a desicion: 1.) keep it until the capped missions are over, then trade it for the Black Belt after; 2.) get the Black Belt a.s.a.p. considering you're gonna spend most of your time by the time you get one on non-capped stuff anyway; or of course there's 3.) not getting a Black Belt, keeping your Brown Belt, and selling it when you're done with it. Though keep in mind that following choice 3 just means that, at least in my opinion, you can never reach a MNK's absolute best potential.
-As for the new expansion, I read an interview and heard from a bunch of people that the new expansion will NOT include more missions like Zilart and CoP did. From what I understand it's gonna focus more on solo content.

Hope this helps anyone wondering these same things.

I'm really far from needing black belt. But the major problem I have with it is giving up brown belt. I know you have to do brown belt to start black, but Brown belt it lvl 40 a few things in CoP are cap above 40 and below 70. And I can here you say either get those done before black belt or MNK sucks in those things either way. But there's another expansion and if it has capped things in it where mnks are awesome in it I'm sure a few high lvl mnks would be kicking themselves for the upgrade. I think black belt should need to sacrofice brown

Am i the only one who is laughing that monks get this belt for no cost(aside from one of the hardest quests in the game) and it adds so much haste+. Speed Belt goes for 21mil on Kujata and i am always hearing from my ls how cool of an item it is because i have sam, drg, drk, and nin in my ls. Even brown belt has more haste+ than speedbelt and true its a long and annoying quest (fukn Morbolger) but its free, and it has +str too. So sorry to all the non monks out there who gotta camp KA or buy that overpriced piece of crap. All i can say is.....you shoulda been a monk.

I dunno, my friend got the brown belt easier than making 1mil. So it depends. The only thing I'm hearing about the brown (even purple for that matter) is the fact that it doesn't work without haste. I dunno if the black belt is the same. But having 12% I wouldn't think it would need haste to work. As for both the purple and the brown, i heard it does.

That's false from the 15 levels I've been using brown belt (Yeah I got it really late ><). With my Brown Belt and Panther Mask on I'm swinging like crazy. Now when I get haste tacked on it's just ridiculous. LoL. I tell mages in a standard pt not to haste me just because monks pull hate too easy in later levels.

Well according to the quest Beating Around the Bush's page here on Alla, the items are rare/ex. Talking about Adamantiose, Behemoth... etc etc... this quest is by far the hardest i've seen yet (closely followed by mannequin poses and *gasp* the other belt quests*) ... but hey, i don't go looking for hard quests. This belt is nice though ^^ if anything its a real symbol of "Boo ya, I did all that annoying crap"

I would like to point out that you can also obtain these black belt items through 99KS(Themis Orb).
Wyrm Beard is dropped from BCNM: "Early Bird Catches the Wyrm" in Balga's Dais.
Adamantoise Egg is dropped from BCNM: "The Hills Are Alive" in Waughroon Shrine.
Behemoth Tounge is dropped from BCNM: "Horns of War" in Horlais Peak.

These items are not 100% drop rate per BCNM, however, they do drop fairly often. My LS have done the "Horns of War" BCNM 7 times and the Behemoth Tounge dropped 5/7 times.

I bet the people at SE was thinking to make this belt for omega monks that have defeated the top HNMs in the game at that time. I find it pretty silly when monks sitting and waitting for spawn, while HNM botting LS win the pull, then sell the item. Where's the monk pride?

I'm currently 2/3 items on belt.. just need the egg, and I missed the spawn on aspid yesterday =/ sucks.

I'd like to point out that you have to be a level 71 Monk to obtain the quest. I just hit 70 on my monk, got hero fame in norg, and went in with my warrior(75) to get the quest so I could trade for my belt, no luck. Looks like I still need another 37k XP until I can get my black belt.

Seriously guys, what do you expect? This IS a black belt. In old Shaolin Monasteries, you had to endure a long test in which the monk would venture through the cave of trials solving ancient puzzles and at the end, the only way to leave the cavern and enter the dubbing room was to move a vat of boiling lead that has no handles. So, it's either grab it by the sides and forever destroy your hands, rendering them useless, or buck up, slap your wrists on the side and weild the vat. thankfully, there were two pegs for your wrists that have dragons on them. So, if you beat conquered the puzzles, and weild the vat of lead, You will gain access to the entrance of the Cristining chamber, be marked on your feet by the puzzles (I'll spare you the details) and have a dragon and a tiger burned into your wrists...sound familiar?

Dragon and tiger...


Nidhogg and KB, respectively. Impressive. So would the vat of boiling lead be classified as Aspid?

For any of those future MNK's trying to get this item. Killing all 3 HMN's is a very DIFFICULT TASK. These HNM's espcially Fafnir is camped all the time by HMNLS. The chances of u getting the HMN, let along the item itself, is very hard to do.

GL wit this cause b/c this is a major pain in the ass

I heard a neat suggestion of a guy who got his belt. He BOUGHT the items. Basically camped near NM HNMLS would come by attack the mob and he'd strike up a deal. Though naturally these items don't come cheap, or if you are extremely lucky they'll give them to you for free.

For those who think I'm daffy for suggesting that you by Rare/Ex items. I am refereing that you exchange money to the leader, he'll invite you to the party you lot the item, etc.

Of course there is risks involved but it was an interesting way of going about it.

No, you can use this in the Maat fight. While you have to be a 71+ MNK to get the quest, let alone belt itself, after you beat Maat he will mention that if you want to fight him again, you just have to trade him another testimony. So you *could* beat Maat, get to 71, get the belt, then just fight him again with it.

But do you have to ba a MNK to do this quest? If someone was, say, a RDM and got this quest post 71, and that person decided to level MNK, they'd have it ready for the Maat fight.

You need to be Monk 71+ to accept the quest

AND

If you killed maat with RDM you wouldn't need to kill with MNK.

Talk to Vola in the Tenshodo HQ in Lower Jeuno.

Kill Fafnir or Nidhogg in the Dragon's Avery to get the RareEx Wyrm Beard. Nidhogg always drops the item.

Go back to the Tenshodo entrance and trade the Wyrm Beard to the door.

Next, kill a Behemoth or King Behemoth in the Behemoth's Dominion to get the RareEx Behemoth's Tongue. King Behemoth always drops the item.

Go back to the Tenshodo entrnace and trade the Behemoth's Tongue to the door.

Now, kill an Adamantoise or Aspidochelone in the Valley of Sorrows to get the RareEx Adamantoise Egg. Aspidochelone always drops the item.

Once again go back to the Tenshodo entrance and trade the Adamantoise Egg to the door.

Finally, trade a Brown Belt to the entrance to receive your reward. You must have completed the Purple Belt and Brown Belt quests to receive this quest.

Haste also decreases recast time for spells, songs and ninjitsu. It does not shorten cast time however, only recast time.
