Thread: New Monk - Many Questions!

    Yeah, flurry is also somewhat helpful for tiering up, but obviously only when taking on multiple creatures. And even then, it's a little tricky because you have to pay attention to what subsequent attacks you need to in order to tier up against the other creatures that you jabbed. Still, all those extra jabs are pretty hand when you're taking on a room full of creatures, especially with flares/ensorcell.

    I keep meaning to actually test it out, but I think flurry may be a little broken when it comes to mstrikes in that it can interrupt the auto tier-up thing that you get mstriking. I'm fairly sure that if a flurry jab hits in between mstrike hits, you end up jabbing when you should have otherwise punched or whatever and it interrupts the tier-up. Don't quote me on that, though. I'll try to go through some logs today and see if I'm actually right about that.

    The bottom line is, if you have very nice flares on your gloves, flurry may edge out krynch. They're fairly evenly matched unless that's the case, and more personal preference. I prefer krynch because you get a free jab on the first mstrike on a thing if it hasn't been jabbed yet, and using flurry negates that. So if you open mstrike a room full of critters with krynch on, you're essentially getting a free flurry with it on the first hit.

    I got some Grapple flaring gloves and some Disruption flaring boots. It's very satisfying with Flurry.

    I think this is maybe a focused mstrike, so it may be different with an open one. But you can see that those jabs don't lead to the correct next attack to tier up.

    Actually, those free jabs aren't wasted with flurry. Each of those free jabs will cause flurry to fire and you'll get 2 or 3 more jabs from each of the free ones.

    Hmm, this is with an open mstrike. Maybe it just ignores those jabs on the open mstrike:
