Well I had every intention of levelling thf to 37 for sub but nah. I subbed war 1-75. Except when i ballista that's Drg sub ;o.
But as numerous people said war is the best DoT. So level it. use it. love it. (Plus double attack pwns)

Sahaya.

i used to use /thf because as elvaan i thought i needed the Dex boost, i was wrong, i switched to /war at 39 and never looked back. ill give you an example, last night in a party in Onzozo, there was 2 monks, me at 59 with /war and another at 61 with /thf...the only time he out damaged me was during SATA howling fist. and we had approximately the same gear, and used the same food and we were both elvaan...also, i REALLY like berserk+focus for weapon skills, specially for raging fists.

For exp, a monks job is to do the most Damage Over Time (DOT) during the battle. We don't do this by using a huge WS with a /THF and/or /DRK (Smiley: disappointed), we do it by punching as fast and as hard as possible.

/WAR allows us to:

1) Double Attack.

What's that mean? It means you can get an extra fucking attack. Without a brutal earring, no other job allows this. Post 51, the more you attack, the more you kick: which is another fucking attack.

You will cream your shorts when you see your charachter attack 4 times (1 attack round: which is two punches, 2 double attacks) and kick on the end.

Your tank will hate you, as will the /THF's and /DRK monks who lurk here.

2) Beserk

Beserk increases your attack for 2 minutes. /DRK has an inferior version of this. /THF doesn't even have that.

3) Warcry

It's a quickie Zerk.

The only thing us monks really worry about is damage. Everything we wear we do so to increase our damage output. ATK and STR are our primary concerns, any other stat besides ACC is not really a concern.

Endgame, we have our own little playground called King Ranperre's Tomb (KRT). We go down there to rape skeletons.
A MNK/THF will suck there standing next to two MNK/WAR's.

A MNK/DRK would die, a lot, in KRT. I'd totally invite one to watch it.

Sure, you can play the game however you like. However, if you plan on finishing the game and meriting, you better have WAR at 37. Or you'll be missing out on some of the greatest EXP in the game.

And it's the most fun I've ever had in EXP.

one thing i have yet to see anyone say is /SAM...

you know what lvl my WAR is right now its lvl 15 and i got Monk to lvl 62 before i even thought about lvling my WAR LMAO

yes a WAR has some increas attack damage on a Weapon Skill but its main use is the Provoke witch in some cases you need.

i have used SAM my whole monk life and im proud of it i have never been kicked from a party and they like the fact that i can SC with 2 people with meditate

and in some rare cases you can even SC with yourself witch is F-ing sweet lmao i love it.

its up to you want you want if you goo with the norm then /WAR is the thing to do. A /THF is a good SATA for ya and SAM is good TP its all about what you want. i love Sam and if i had it my way i would never sub WAR but like i said you do need that provoke sometimes thats why i am lvling it.

But the first thing i say when joining a party will be i am a /SAM is that ok. if not i will change but thats if i must. so do what you got to do thanks for your time.

Monk Power never trust your life to a weapon, your Fists will never break, the power of your self is everlasting and will never be taken from you.

WFOAssassin: Smiley: banghead

Read what I wrote. Notice how provoke is missing?
Provoke doesn't add damage. Our job is to do damage.
This is why we /WAR.

Provoke is nice to have if you have a tank that can't keep hate off a mage.

Provoke is also nice for the tank to use to keep hate off of you if you're using 2 WS during 1 fight >.>

Your post made me Smiley: cry
