Bah! It's always those little things.

Good eye, no one else(including myself) spotted that in 3months. Smiley: laugh

Changed, thanks.

Goblin Cracker is nice for the ammo slot for farming and soloing. Personally, I'd use it over Tiphia Sting, since the cracker doesn't have -25 HP and -4 EVA penalties.

Anyway, despite what you think the goblin cracker is a better choice for soloing/farming than a tiphia sting. As I stated in a previous post, the -4 EVA and -25 hurts more than it helps despite the +2 ACC it provides.

For farming maybe. But the DoT boost from Acc+2 and Att+2 is of more consiquence than 4EVA or 25HP in an exp/endgame situation. Which makes Tiphia Sting wholly worth it.

Well, seeing as how most mobs that are farmed (and in some cases solo'd at least from my perspective) are EP/DC -possibly EM, the contribution that the sting provides against those mobs for farming/soloing would be marginal at best. And as a MNK75 with h2h, crit hits, counter fully merited I don't see that there really would be a huge difference between the sting and cracker since MNKs themselves are DOT pros.

I agree the tiphia sting is an excellent piece for the ammo slot for most other things, but not when it comes to farming and soloing. Another example is shura togi. I would never farm/solo in it because the -50 HP isn't very helpful when for the most part I want to maximize my HP and EVA because I know the less I get hit, the more I can keep going without having to slow down and rest. Arakan samue is obviously a much better choice than togi, even a NQ scorpion harness for that matter. That doesn't mean the shura togi is no good or that samue and scorpion harness are better overall; just not for soloing/farming sessions.

Same thing between a goblin cracker vs tipia sting for that same reason. That predominantly is the main reason why I suggested it in the first place.

I apologize if I'm coming off as an ***. That really isn't my intention as I'm just trying to explain my position in more detail based off of my personal experiences farming and some soloing as a MNK75.

Well if you're farming EP/DC things you won't need the 2Acc anyway, so it's a moot point.


No the difference isn't huge, but the Sting is lower level, and it does give more DoT+. Which is what makes it better.

Sorry but i'm leaving it how it is.

Not to mention that this isn't a "what to wear when you're soloing/farming on MNK at X level range" guide.

Is it better to keep my smart grenade on over the tiphia if I can hit the accuracy cap without the tiphia? Trying to get another viewpoint on this comparison.

Thanks

If you can hit the Acc cap without Tiphia you need to either; 1)Stop using Sushi, 2)Get out of Caedarva Mire, 3)Unmerit Focus recast.


But yes if you can cap Acc, another 2 Att will do more for you.

Looks like mixed set wins but maybe only by a little. There are of course assumptions that acc is not capped.

You're failing to take into account the Set bonus for the Usukane Haramaki Set. It's 5% Haste, which means you cap haste with the full set + Black Belt. Meaning it's still our best option for TPing in.

However Hachiryu Haramaki now usurps Shura Togi for the best non-full Usu body piece.

Overall very very close. Adding the gain from the counter and evasion I think usu set still is the best. (I'd trade .5% for +29 evasion and counter +2.)

I'm sure this has been addressed somewhere before. but:

Charger's mantle. How does it measure up to the other attack back pieces? does the 5 atk over come the 2 STR (amemet+1), 3STR (Foragers) or 4STR (Cerb+1)?

Thanks in advance.

While combing through my wish-slash-todo list, I remembered these gems.

Hachiryu Kote has the same accuracy as Noritsune, while including a healthy amount of DEX and Zanshin, both mostly useful for auto-attacks. Plus the Set: Store TP.

So really, while it's nothing to write home about, it is better than Noritsune.

Is there any reason the Cobra Unit Cap isnt included here? Ive been thinking about getting it when i can equip it, but i haven't really noticed any mention of it. I wear Crow Beret in exp and figured the Cobra Cap will be a really nice upgrade, is there something i dont know about it?

Hey Nil. One edit, and one question.

Did you mean that 65 to be 60? Just a nit-pic sorry ><

Now for my question. Did a search of the monk forums for the boots Creek M Clomps; 4STR 4VIT. Not alot showed up. I'm thinking these would be better than denali for dragon kick, and denali would be better for asuran fists, does that sound right?
