Relevancy of information and recommended weapons can quickly change over time.
Use substantial discretion before heavily investing resources.

Overview

Monk is a class focused on dealing skill damage and counterattacks. Pre Ultimate Mastery the class will take longer to reach full effectiveness. However, with Ultimate Mastery, the class delivers more reliable damage in the earlier turns, reaching its maximum potential much faster. Monk is commonly used for Full Auto setups and longer raids. Compared to other similar classes such as Manadiver, the damage it provides is much more centralized on MC.
