Asuran Fists will definitely be saved for if I know I can either kill the mob, need to tank something, or can put it close enough to death that it doesn't matter.


See, every monk makes this promise at some point. It's like some bad six step program or something...

1.) "I promise not to use Asuran Fists until I know I can kill it."
2.) "I promise not to Asuran Fists until I think I can kill it."
3.) "Well, I have a shot at killing it. Let's use Asuran Fists."
4.) "OK, I'll only use Asuran Fists after the tank has hate well in hand."
5.) "I'll only use Asuran Fists after the second Provoke goes off."
6.) "Hey! Watch me pull this mob with Asuran Fists!"


It's a sad cycle. Don't fall prey to it, I tell you! It's never too late to level Dancer.

I agree with E. Taru Asuran Fists > All! They ******* jump kick and pull a back flip off the ******* mobs face. If I remember correctly, Galka's do a spinning backhand as the last hit...I think >_>

I never really liked Asuran Fists minus the way it looked. It's very hard to get consistent numbers from it since you need ACC and ATK for it instead of STR. Plus Darkness pretty much sucks overall. Light chains seem to be way more useful.

It's one of those WS's that it doesn't really matter how hard you're hits are landing but just making sure they land is the point. Penta Thurst is kind of the same way but since DRG's get a nice boost in ACC from traits and the 2h update we don't have to go nuts on ACC to land most of the hits.

Most multi-hit ws's are like that though. I know for WHM and THF, I was constantly playing with my ACC setup for Hexastrike and Dancing Edge until I got the optimum TP return, then it's finely tweaking it to try to maximize the damage. For me with DE now, I have my ACC decent (fairly constant 13% TP return), but trying to maximize the damage on it makes my head hurt sometimes.

I have a life belt in case I am missing a few hits on Asuran Fists that I can macro in and out. Although I don't like taking off my brown belt.

The thing with Asuran is that it's 8 hits which gives more chances to hit or miss which makes ACC a huge part of it. Even though Penta is 5 hits I don't even swap out any gear from my TP set up and I get very consistent numbers. I only eat bison steaks so not throwing on a ton of STR for WSs and keeping all my ACC gear on has been working out nicely. I also roll with a ton of ATK so that also helps.

Hold on to that Life Belt. I would keep using it only for Asuran. If you can, get a Potent Belt to WS with. Has ACC and STR on it which is good for all multi hit WS's. I keep it on full time along with woods x2 and a chiv chain.

Had to go over to our colocation server farm today, and well....got two flakes that fell on the way back to the car. In Dallas, Texas. I'm frightened.

Mainly because I know that Dallas drivers go absolutely ape when the freezing stuff starts falling from the sky....

You obviously need to drive a tank when the weather gets bad. XD

And I'd believe it Louie. I had a friend in college whose mother lived down south, and he said once is snowed and they got like, a half inch of snow on the ground. The whole town shut down and they broke out the plows.

In Jersey, a half inch of snow is nothing but an annoyance. :<

Just got Orn and a friend of mine Asuran Fists. Have fun with it Orn :D.

They got snow up in scotland apparently :(. Sucks, cos we never get snow down here at the bottom of England. Until like half way through the year when it's completely unexpected anyway.
Weekend for me now, no college on Fridays :D. Hope everyone's having/had a good day. Night.

Grats Orn! Soloing should be easy as sh*t for you now lol.

In other news....I BEAT MAAT!

Hit 70 tonight(took us 3 months and we don't even xp every night o.0) and static went and farmed Drg and War test's. I had an hour left on my 2hr so I was going to do it tomorrow after work but I couldn't help it so I waited till 2am to do it even though I have to be up in 5 hours lol. @#%^ed up part was I didn't even need to use my **** 2hr since the fight was over before I needed to. I was going to use it as a ghetto heal when my HP got too low since it transfers the wyvern's TP and HP to the Drg.

Anyway, I recorded it and made a little video.

Enjoy!

Congrats Reiginsei, yeah Blackvivi asked me if I still needed to do the fight so I got lucky by knowing the right people once again.

Looks like last night was a good night for a few people.
