Requirements: Knight Level Two
With the exception of the Knight, the Monk Job Class is one of the best offensive-line jobs for the middle portion of Final Fantasy Tactics. The Monk is an unlikely choice, however, since it’s limited to its fists, weapon-wise, as well as the lightest of armor and no head protection. As a result, compared to a fully armored Knight, its HPs will seem lacking and make its ability to stand effectively in close proximity to the enemy suspect.
What the Monk lacks in HP it makes up for with a boost in speed, agility, and attack power. One blow with its bare fists often causes more damage to the enemy than a single sword strike, because its AT strength isn’t limited by a weapon’s power. Moreover, its action skills are perhaps the most versatile, ranging from deadly perimeter and distance attacks to restorative spells. In addition, as the Monk’s Brave points rise, so does its attack strength, which allows it to cause greater damage to enemies and provide greater healing to its allies.
