Having 3/3 black belt and your brown belt quest still open should be against the law.
QFT. A good in-game friend of mine who has DRG WAR MNK SAM 75 (in that order) won't go back to an endgame shell (to finish Black Belt, he's 1/3) until he finishes the Brown Belt quest, a good man, imo.
On the other hand I'm sure there's some old school Monks that bought their first Brown Belt ASAP & went 3/3 on Black Belt as first job MNKs & had to finish the Brown Belt quest.
If you made that statement in 2004...??? Now we get in to the question of who's a real MNK? First job to 75 MNKs or people who pick it up at any point beyond first job to 45, 50, 60 etc??? Speaking as a first job to 75 MNK, I'm all for the former, but one of my best MNK buddies who is really passionate about MNK & helpful to other MNKs was a RDm & WHM 75 before getting MNK 75 & then hated going RDM or WHM to anything, either because he got bored with them or loved MNK that much, I don't know and in his case I'll give him the benefit of the doubt, since he's about 2/3 done on Spharai.
