May not be the answer you are looking for but here is a useful tool when comparing monk weapons https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...nxk/edit#gid=0
I really wish you could change the strength.... also, I would love to know their equations.

The vast majority of people out there don't parse themselves and just do whatever someone else suggests.

I'm also trying to figure out what the correct damage formula is....
I WAS that warrior on live who parsed the shit out of AC. Between me and Brael (a sk forum leader) we eventually changed minds. The forum battles on thesteelwarrior were epic.

Take it from a dude who parses everything. Epic/SoS > AC/SoS

Or don't and actually parse it for yourself. If you have epic, you have all you need to test your math. Math is a good place to start but the actual code and variability is the fuzzy point. Real life performance does not always match up with the 'math'.

minimal but epic is undeniably better in terms of damage output. Any gains using AC is "potential" and thus theoretical.

If you really want to avoid damage solo/duo, use something like the 38/40 IFS. Realistically, the difference in dmg intake factoring in stun, 2h high delay, etc is negligible.

I rock epic + AC and am spending 100% of my XPing from 59 to 60 in sebilis.

Tons of caster mobs. Love getting clutch stuns.

If I'm not using a 2h I prefer pure monk epic fist for DAT PUSH SON

If everyone is telling you one thing is true, good chance it is. Just because some brain dead morons tell you Game of Thrones is shit doesn't make it true, kinda the biggest thing going on so MAYBE it's actually good??

You're call, but you're going to be wasting your time.
Game of Thrones was shit. 90% of the show was people walking and talking about what they did or were going to do instead of actually doing stuff.


Watch it again, you'll be bored out of your skull until you get to the stand out scenes where things actually happen that are sprinkled in here and there.
