Monk is a Disciple of War melee DPS job.
Though now under Garlean rule, the city-state of Ala Mhigo once boasted the greatest military might of all Eorzea. Among its standing armies were the monks—ascetic warriors as dreaded by foes on the field of battle as the city-state's great pikemen.
The monks comprised an order known as the Fist of Rhalgr, and it was to this god—the Destroyer—that they devoted their lives of worship. By mastering seats of power within the body known as chakra, they are capable of performing extraordinary physical feats.
The Lightning Gauge indicates a monk's current amount of Greased Lightning as well as the time remaining before the effect fades. Greased Lightning is accumulated by executing certain weaponskills and improves attack speed and damage dealt.
As a monk or pugilist increases in level, the amount of Greased Lightning that can be stored at one time will increase to a maximum of 3 units.
The Chakra Gauge indicates the number of chakra a monk currently has opened. Chakra are opened using the action Meditate, and opening 5 allows for the execution of the Forbidden Chakra and Purification (acquired at level 58).
