No dude.. its not.
Monks are bad kids.. just accpet it for now. i know i know they look and act super cool + they were awesome in RO1
BUT no AGI on gears (in korean server they get AGi btw) and bugs + no def + no heal + low dmg + misses = you must be joking right?
and BTW any raid/party in the game will prefer a KNIGHT/WARRIOR with 10% STR BUFF over this cool looking monk guy that does nothing.
With that being said - i love Monks.. they are super awesome in theory! but FACE THE FACTS for the time being its NOT A GOOD CLASS FOR ANYTHING pvp/colo/pve/farming/soloing/grinding/whatever - its all bad.
rest my case thx, peace.
You so cray.
If Monk is MT Knight or War can be OT if you must have the STR buff.
No AGI sucks but bad gear scaling sucks more. I still don't have threat problems from my dps. The proximity threat bug is an issue though. Monk damage is good too. Not as good as it could be because poor scaling and lack of AGI but more than enough due to high base stats and good rotations.
Colo Monks have a hard time because they need all their skills. Level 4/5 in LW is a must for snipes and escapes. Accessories make things easier and the weapon makes it almost too easy. I've recently bought the colo top and get to final round twice a day. If I bought the weapon or Guillotine wasn't so buggy I'd have a few champs. Still there isn't much you can do when there are multiple sorcs/wiz/rangers in last round.
Honestly if monk gear was fixed it would be the most OP tank class and I am fine with that.
EDIT: Grammer and spelling.
