Ummm.... Actually, very few people really have their STR maxxed out unbuffed, and the ATK boost from +100 STR in NOT negligible. Also, where do you come up with this odd notion that monks swing any more often than any other melee with maxxed dual weild/double attack skills? Get yourself a parser. You're just mistaken there.

Actually, I find that rogues have the greatest increase to their DPS from the ATK aspect of this buff. No monk is ever going to double-backstab for 1300 points of damage, more often, because they have avatar, but a rogue will.

If, on the other hand, you are the main tank in a group/raid, you can't go wrong with +100 DEX (to increase the proc rate on that enraging blow weapon, for holding aggro) and +100 AGI, for a substantial AC boost as well as just out and out avoidance of hits.

How many of you have maxxed STA, and therefore max HP, without this buff?

The benefits of this proc are huge, and of massive value to all classes.

Yes, monks have the higher number of attacks per second (I'm not saying the higher DPS).

Triple attack, dual wield, up to 3 special attacks per round (Flying kick, dragon punch, ...) with a PoP AA (Techniques of Master Wu), and you can have 9 attacks per round (yes it happens rarely).

Hmm... best combination? At the moment, probably Exquisite Puresteel Wraps or Ulak in primary, and then Battle Fists in Off-Hand. Caen's Staff isn't too shabby either if you go 2-handed. I'm pretty sure there will be better soon.

Battle Fists drop off Tallon in PoT which are 18/20 with better stats

Battle fists don't proc Avatar either. Nothing beats having avatar on yourself.

Primal/Prismatic are really only used as swap in weapons. Swap for proc, once it lands, swap back in your usual weapon.

If you don't have high end PoP weapons these are still good alternatives if your guild is ST capable.

Well, its definately the best monk/beastlord offhand. After this i'd probably wield one of those 17/19 or fists of honor for my primary.

Just my 2 cents

Many of the guilds who do Sleepers try and get at least one Primal/Prismatic in this case per member. In fact most do have that. The reason for this is while 15/20 is REALLY good its just not up to par with loot from equivelent Luclin zones. However! The proc from this weapon a 100 to str dex and agil buff improves DPS for monks especially astronomically. So you beat with this when soloin for a few minutes it procs then you whip out your pimp Luclin weapons and your DPS SKYROCKETS... the majority of people who do Sleepers do in fact have better than this not counting in the proc so these are mainly used just for the proc... I've been rampling a bit too long now so I'll just stop... yeah thats it

100 str/dex/agi is nearly irrelevant, actually. It's almost a side effect of Avatar. The real reason to buff with it is +100 ATK. That's the part of it that so significantly raises DPS. Monks are observed to benefit most sometimes because their ATK is used most often (they swing most often).
