    Default So these proc belts are nice but....

    This one is a kick in the balls.....

    Why is mnk not on this? IMO this is probably the nicest item in the game for a monk.

    Parry-only effect, would be wasted on a monk

    Don't be silly. That's just a matter of how they made the item. Other belts have abilities that fire off of dodge/block/parry/etc. This could easily be that way if they wanted to.

    I'm questioning why make such an item and not include mnk/bst on it.

    Because counterforce has a long reuse time and this belt will work on everything that tries to hit you.

    I asked exactly this on SOE forums, and never got a reply. Its not exactly overpowered imo, especially given how many slows are in the game now, and that we never really even had a decent weapon that procs slow.

    From a "role play" perspective, the effect tendon slice doesn't make much sense for a monk using fists or blunt weapons. Though to me that's a dumb reason not to give it to us.

    A shuriken or throwing knife would work, though it wouldn't make much sense in close combat.

    bump. these belts work for monks now. I use Despot's belt (t2 RoS from Gorrowyn) when we don't have a slower, and it works great. I swap out my Boon of the Seeress belt (VPt2group) for raids and DPS when we do have a slower.
