Would prevent monks from bypassing epic and cheapening it but would make elemental gloves the super desirable upgrade they SHOULD be. Not a minor, debatable tradeoff.

Some of us fail to see the light.
the Celestial Fists (monk epic) has a right click effect that adds 40% haste that stackable with spell haste and item haste but will not get you past the cap of 80% total haste.. it also adds 54 to ATK which has a direct effect on dammage output and it adds 12ac. It is true that the effect does not stack with the level 62 chanter haste that adds 41ATK and 68% spell haste along with 52agi and 33dex. with out ranger bufs however a monk is better off using the epic effect and asking the chanter for Vision of Grandure which is the level 60 chanter haste that is 58%haste 40agi 25dex and 26ATK the reason being (assuming the monk's str is maxed and that he is not tanking)with a ranger present then there is Strength of Tunare which is also not stackable with with Celestial Tranquility but adds 60 ATK.
So in summery with no ranger the best combination is:
Celestial Tranquility 54ATK
Visions of Grandure 26ATK
with ranger present
Speed of Vallon 41ATK
Strength of Tunare 60ATK
Sprit of the Predator 70ATK
If no ranger is present and Speed of Vallon is used
Speed of Vallon 41ATK
So you gotta know what to use in which situaton..
Alot of times a monk will simply be in a single group with out the advantage of Ranger Buffs which makes the epic and it effect the best choice.
which spell has more haste percentage makes no different as long as monk has at least 22% item haste.. (VoG haste 58% + 22% item haste = 80% with is the max you can have) the stats on the spells are different but if you are grouped with a shaman then your stats whould max with either haste spell and shaman bufs.. I know with either haste and shaman bufs my stats are maxed except for stamina. wich is 234 the rest are 285 wich is level 65 stat cap plus level 1 of Planar Power.. this might change with more planar power but as far as dammage output goes neither chanter haste effects strength which is he only stat to affect ATK. dex on the otherhand does effect special attacks (kicks).
Speed of Vallon 41atk
These gloves 30atk
still 9 atk lower then epic and VoG but you have to factor in the higher hp's and the 3 hp regen as well...I'd rather have 3hp regen and more hp's then 9 atk...anyone else agree with me?
edit...oh I forgot, only the stats from the song stack with the spell haste, not the haste itself. so if you had SoV on you would only really need a 22% haste item to get to soandso's posted 80% cap on haste...I doubt it is 80 but I could be wrong.
If they ever did make a new epic and decided to do gloves for monks like before I would imagine the right click to be one of the newer bard haste songs that break the cap.

I duo with my wife a lot, and always ask for SoS
ahh yes, stat wise they may be better, however when you look at the effect on epic, there is something there.
1: Increase ATK by 40
5: Increase Attack Speed by 40%
8: Increase AC by 12
granted, if you could click gloves from invintory it might be worth it, however you also have to count in the laziness factor. i doubt most monks are going to be willing to sacraphice 40attk, not to mension the 40% song haste from the click on the gloves
granted if you were willing to do the clicks, click the gloves then equip the new ones, and you'd have a net +70 attk, 3 regen and 12 ac over all, not counting stats, just effects. 70attk is nothing at all to sneeze at, but how often is a monk going to be willing to do that? probably not much.
so once again, epic will most likely stay equipped (atleast in my opionion it should)
note: yes, i know it was posted in the wrong area, too lazy to fix it. ;)
