Monk DPS Gear and Best in Slot — Endwalker 6.2

Last updated on Aug 28, 2022 at 22:28 by Perfect Balance 5 comments

On this page, you will find the best gear and best-in-slot items for your Monk DPS in Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker (Patch 6.2).


Monk Gear Sets

This section covers the endgame best-in-slot gear options for Monk in various different endgame encounters.

Monk has two ideal GCD tiers it can play at; 1.94 and 1.93. 766 Skill Speed is required to reach 1.94 GCD, with 854 being the number for a 1.93 GCD. The reason we want this GCD is so that our rotation can flow as cleanly as possible with minimal Riddle of Fire Icon Riddle of Fire or Brotherhood Icon Brotherhood drift.


Savage BiS — 1.94 GCD


Savage BiS— 1.94 GCD - Samurai Compatible

1 DPS lower than the other 1.94 set.

When using a 1.94 set it is recommended to use either XivAlexander/ReAction's FPS features in order to minimize Riddle of Fire Icon Riddle of Fire drift. Keep in mind, however, that third-party tools are to be used at your own discretion. If playing on console/not using any external programs, you should run a 1.93 set.


Savage BiS — 1.93 GCD

This set allows for using Riddle of Fire Icon Riddle of Fire perfectly on cooldown without the slight drift to accommodate late weaving. It is recommended if you are not optimizing your frame rate via third-party means.
