sure thiers better choices, but combine this with a gelong staff (+4 hp heal), and you can start at 20 hp a tick, really only useful if you farm a lot etc...although i wish they would just up the hp regen a tick to make it more comparable to mages getting mp while resting :/

I really think it's about time they changed what it drops off of. It doesn't drop off Dynamis Lord. No relic gear drops only from Dynamis Lord(although the lvl 75 gear that drops in Xarcabard could drop from him). This drops in Dynamis-Beaucidine, and it can drop off any mob(I personally got mine from an NM smn yag). However, the drop rate in the Northlands for relic gear is pure crap. Most people would kill the Dynamis Lord long before they see this piece.

Edit: Looks like they finally fixed it.

Hey since were posting things that aren't true and acting like we totally know what were talking about and other people are wrong, I heard the regen effect is 300hp/sec.

I'm really looking forward to that, and I am sure you can see why I would be.

But seriously, the gloves do stack with the AF1 cyclas, which do cause you to erase paralyze, and 3.6 x VIT is the total.

Also, wtf are people talking about losing the chakra effect by equipping this. If you don't have equipment macros yet for MNK you are way behind the curve. Obviously, this isn't a piece of armor you would wear in a normal exp party. I am surprised anyone would ever think that is even up for debate.

Chakra removes poison, enhanced chakra from Temple cyclas removes Paralyze, enhanced chakra from melee gloves remove disease.

Chakra also removes blindness, with no temple cyclas or melee gloves required (only works for what you could otherwise remove with Blindna, does NOT work for something that you'd need erase for, like the "accuracy down" type move that a worm can do (sandspin or something)).

And no, Chakra doesn't rid Paralyze.

Umm.. unless your monk and dont know anything.. While having Temple Cyclas equipped it does remove Paralyze..

#Periclis, Posted: Jul 22 2005 at 7:57 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Chakra(with Temple Cyclas/Melee Gloves equipped) gets rid of Blind, Poison, and Paralyze. But also paralyze can cancel out Chakra. Unless you are solo or main tank I believe you can actually take the "huge" risk of using it. When you chakra and your Temple Cyclas/Melee Gloves aren't equipped and you are lv 58+ then you are a ******. Pre 58 suck it up and hope that one of your mages can hook you up.

Although I cannot confirm that Chakra rids the using character of paralyze, I can confirm that it gets rid of poison.
Partying in Crawlers nest with a thief and a paladin put me in the first provoke position.
Almost every time, the crawler would poison me before SATA went off.
Luckily, I learned that Chakra not only cures a small amount of lost hp from first voking, but got rid of the poison as soon as it was used.
This not only helped me but also helped conserve our mages hp for better chaining and put it to more use throughout the fight.
As for curing paralyzation, i will test it on my monk, to find out if chakra negates the effect. Maybe it has something to do with how high ones VIT stats are?

Um......chakra with either Temple Cyclas or Melee Gloves on DOES remove Paralyze. Read into it.

If you are paralyzed there is a chance that ANYTHING will be cancelled out. Life.

And no, Chakra doesn't rid Paralyze. Chakra during paralyze cancels out the Chakra.. oops 5 more minutes until chakra again.

I agree because the HP Regen is 1 hp a tick so its like the Spell Regen .3 lol. Second You lose acc+5 from AF1. Third u also lose the enhanced Chakra that rids u of Paralysus. Its only good for show boating or farming IMO.

Lastly the INformation is incorrect. Its dropped in Dynamus-Beuacidine

dropped off DL..omg that means the Galka MNK I saw months ago was so friggin uber... he had Full Melee on, which means he either got lucky and it dropped off his Dynamis Crew's first battle with DL....OR his crew smacked DL so often that it dropped finally.

I seen this on a hume female and if I remember right it looked just like temple gear but it was black and red instead of orange and brown. Could be wrong though, been a while since I last seen it.

Hmmm... I still think for a Party where your job is to do Damage (That's what we do), Kirin's Osode and Shura Togi do their job much better.

I think its a bit misleading to say it only drops off of Dynamis Lord, which is not the case.

With Melee Gloves and Temple Cyclas you get 3.6x your VIT, not quite 4x.

4 times?

Ur thinking about the Melee Gloves. The Melee Gloves give the better Enhanced Chakra (Vitx4). Basicly they took the Enhanced Chakra from Temple Cyclas and stuffed it into the gloves as well as improve its effectiveness when they moved it.

This Cyclas is possibly the best Solo Body u can get having Regen on it.

On a side note the Enhanced Chakras dont stack (i have the Melee gloves and Temple Cyclas). Once u get the Melee Gloves i strongly suggest u upgrade to Scorpion Harnes or Shura Togi for PT use. Having Enhanced Chakra in the gloves as well as the Atk.+16 on the gloves was a stroke of genius IMO for bot having to change body everytime u an enhanced Chakra.
