Monk FAQ

This page will answer the most common questions relating to any quirks or confusions about playing Monk. It will be further populated as Endwalker raises new questions.


Which opener is best?

There is no one best opener. Each opener is designed to accommodate different scenarios, and the one you should use depends on your killtime. If you are in a situation where you do not know what your killtime will look like, then you should go with Lunar Solar.


What is the point of Celestial Revolution?

Celestial Revolution Icon Celestial Revolution is strictly a consolation prize for when you make a mistake during Perfect Balance Icon Perfect Balance and should never be used intentionally.


Is Riddle of Earth 20% or 60% mitigation?

The wording is confusing on the tooltip, this is a flat 20% mitigation at all 3 stacks.
