MNK Level 50 Combo List
« on: September 06, 2013, 02:41:28 PM »
D: Why are there not much MNKs in here... They don't suck in DPS if you keep up your combos. They are just challenging to play and needs full concentration...

Anyway, here's the NEW combo list that I made to maximise the duration of the 3 DoTs and to keep it up through the whole fight:

This list includes the MRD debuff: Fracture

Opener-

Bootshine -> Touch of Death -> Fracture -> Twin Snakes ->  Demolish

Main Body 1-

Dragon Kick -> True Strike -> Snap Punch

Main Body 2-

Bootshine -> Fracture -> Twin Snakes -> Demolish -> Dragon Kick -> True Strike -> Snap Punch

Main Body 3-

Bootshine -> Touch of Death -> Fracture -> Twin Snakes -> Demolish -> Repeat from Main Body 1 on wards.


You can use these combos on boss enemies with a lot of HP. If you're dealing with small fry, you can just start with Touch of Death and follow with a simple combo of Bootshine -> True Strike/Twin Snakes -> Snap Punch. You can also use the boss-combo if the mobs HP are going down slowly. Just make sure that you have the maximum number of stacked Greased Lightning (maximum of 3 stacks at level 40) as well as debuffs on the mobs.

EDIT for Perfect Balance: The only time I used Perfect Balance was to throw out hits that has the highest potency, aka, Snap Punch from the flank. Just stand at the boss' flank and spam Snap Punch when Perfect Balance is on until 3 stacks of Greased Lightning, then throw in Demolish and Twin Snakes. This is also helpful in the starting of the fight, as Greased Lightning will also come into effect after each Snap Punch/Demolish.

EDITs to the combo list: Implemented Demolish in each line of combo containing Bootshine, reason being that Bootshine and Dragon Kick has about the same timer, at most a difference at 1 seconds when Greased Lightning is at 3 stacks.

Changed the position of Touch of Death (weird timer) to be after Bootshine (other than Opener) in order to refresh it just as it goes off.

Implemented Fracture into the combo. MRD DoT skill.

-Edit-: Changed the position of the execution of Fracture and Touch of Death to be before Twin Snakes, so that Twin Snakes will not run out when Bootshine is being used. I have tried maximising the time for Twin Snakes to cover DoTs (maximum DoT damage), but couldn't do it, so this is the only way to minimise DPS loss. I might probably attempt to cover DoTs with Twin Snakes once I get ATM/Allagan gear.

Practice makes perf-- Oh wait, practice makes better :D
