With SE talking about having left and right hand controls, buttons to hit etc... Monk is going to be amazing. What if they add a kick command on a cool down instead of this randomness? It'll be like Parapa the rappa "kick punch it's all in the mind" lol. I know you remember that.

I can see those arguments already :P but..

Actualy you want to start off with your nondominante hand in most (RL) cases, to check thier defence and set up a better target for the more powerfull hand :P well ussualy.. hehe.

If they are calling the class grappler does that mean we will be wrestling and useing joint locks and breaks? ;P watching grappling gets old alot faster than standup arts hehe.

This is somewhat unrelated and kind of strange but looking at the picture of the monk we have been given those weapons seem to be very hard to hold...I can't imagine you could actually punch someone with them. Plus the claws hook at the end...it looks more like something you would slash with, letting the shape of the claws tear away at your opponent.

Anyway, continue with your discussion.

Would make for a great hook.

I hope not. Most of that UFC stuff just devolves into awkward spooning.

Seeing that with a Lalafell and a Tunnel Worm or somesuch might just scar me permanently.

Besides... Orcish Grapplers never grappled ****.

yep, basicly.. I remember back when the UFC was actuly about differant arts squaring off and the only rules were last man standing wins and if you break it you pay for it.

Yeah, there does seem to be some potential there.

Honestly, I'm a little bit disappointed that SE seems to be going with the same weapon system so far. I never really liked Monk weapons. They do like rather unwieldy. They should just go with actual gloves, including variant designs like brass/spiked knuckles type (and then iron, steel, etc. as the whole system went in XI).

I mean, Katars and all are fine, but they way they're designed in XI (and now apparently XIV judging from the screenshot of the Grappler), the Monk (oh, excuse me, Grappler) is holding onto this thin strip of metal that's not really ergonomic at all. I can imagine that weapon bending in his (or her!) grip the second it strikes something substantial, being deflected off to one side and thus making the Mon--Grappler lose all of his or her power.

But then again that's not to say the characters in these games wield melee weapons like they should. I'm especially looking at you, Elvaan females of XI >.>
