I would love to have these so much!!! MNK leg gear is for the most part a very weak slot, and since i've hardly touched Sky yet I don't have a good chance getting Byakko/Shura any time soon. I do have Dynamis-Sandoria coming up though, maybe i'll get lucky! All I know is i've been wearing Republic Subligar for 50 levels now, lol. These would also give me about 110 extra HP.

last weekend in Dynamis-Sandy only drop of the day was the Melee Pants. i lotted a 54 on my Melee Pants (._.), and the guy who got it lotted a 312, needless to say, i wasnt too happy >.< they're worthwhile in my opinion, some people dont give these pants much credit

Real monks merit counter. But fyi the +5 is +5%. That goes for all items in this game...including magic atk bonus, counter, store tp, etc.

my only question ( i got these last tuesday waiting till 72 to put on) is do these increase kick attacks frequency because thats what i would guess that they do. they are leg gear and also i have dune boots so my kick attack damage will be sick too. so im guessing and hoping that kick attacks+ 5 makes me kick an insane amount.

I just got these recently. I swap them in with my Shura Haidate, and I honestly believe that it increased my Kick Attack frequency. Ya never know about hidden effects, but it sure seemed like I was kicking a lot more. YES, Dune Boots are the BEST to wear with these. Merits put into Kick Attacks help as well. ^^

Melee Gear is like the best for soloing too, specially with /nin.

75MNK/37WAR I have 1749 HP (before merits, I have
HP+40 from merits).

All HP+__% effects from gear/food/etc are added up and
look at your HP AFTER other HP+__ food, gear, and merits.

Therefore a 75MNK/37WAR with no merits/food wearing only
the relic gear would have:

1749 * 1.23 = 2151.27 = 2151 HP

with my HP+40 from merits I have

(1749 + 40) * 1.23 = 2200.47 = 2200 HP

Which indeed is how much I have.

Merits.....: HP+80
Weapon..: Senior Gold Musketeer's Rod: HP+25
Ammo....: Fenrir's Stone: daytime: HP+30
Neck....: Shield Pendant: HP+20
Ear1....: Pigeon Earring +1: HP+25
Ear2....: Bloodbead Earring: HP+25
Ring1...: Bomb Queen Ring: HP+75
or........Getsul Ring: Enchantment HP+20%
Ring2...: Bloodbead Ring: HP+50
Back....: Gigant Mantle: HP+80
Waist...: Desert Sash: HP+30

Standing HP (no enchantment items):
1749+80+25+30+20+25+25+75+50+80+30= 2189 * 1.23 = 2692.47 = 2692 HP

Getsul Ring
1749+80+25+30+20+25+25+75+80+30= 2139 * 1.43 = 3058.77 = 3058 HP

using Enchantment is lame though.

Food: Carbonara +1: HP+14%, cap is +180HP

2692 HP + 180 = 2872 HP

Getsul Ring
3058 HP + 180 = 3238 HP

If you use that Balista HP+100% food instead you'll get
~5384 and ~6116 hp respectively.

I consider the two standing HP ones (food and no food) to be the important ones (2692HP and 2872HP)

I wonder if a galka 75 monk can break 2,500 with other hp+ items equipped.
That would be insane to see lol.

I think its actually possible to get near 3,000 with ever piece of the best HP+ gear you can get. Then just imagine... pop a giants drink in ballista and be up to around 6,000! 0.0

if i'm ever filthy rich, i'll do that lol.

it was a while back, but i saw a picture of a mithra monk in full af2 (didnt show gear) had just barely broken 3k (was like 3007 or something) so if a mithra can, id bet a galka could come closer to 3.5 maybe even 4

stuble blow

I've seen questions about stuble blow, to clear it up it reduces the amount of TP a mob gets not you.

Is it just me, or is the description the same as the melee gaiters, while the picture shows something different?

This is so beautiful
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.
