A pugilist is an expert in hand-to-hand combat. Through rigorous training, he forges devastating weapons of his limbs. Having said that, fists and feet don't deal near as much damage as a blade. But what does that matter when you can land several blows for each swing of the sword? Aye, what a pugilist lacks in destructive force, he makes up for in speed and cunning. Rather than trying to deal great damage with a single blow, he pummels his foe with lightning-fast combinations. If you become as good as yours truly, your combinations will be so swift and seamless, folk won't be able to tell when one technique ends and another begins! Hah hah hah!

Hamon Holyfist

The Monk is a job in Final Fantasy XIV, introduced as the Discipline of War Pugilist (格闘士, Kakutou Shi?) in the original release. Players start as a Pugilist, and then may upgrade to Monk using the Soul Crystal obtained from the quest Brother from Another Mother after Pugilist reaches level 30.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Pugilist[edit | edit source]

Pugilist Class Artwork ARR.jpg

The path of the pugilist is one of incessant training aimed at mastering the traditional techniques of hand-to-hand combat. Though pugilists command formidable power when unarmed, they are wont to use metal, leather, and bone weaponry to maximize their destructive potential.

Their preference for fighting at close quarters makes negotiating distances an absolute necessity. Many among them accomplish this by avoiding burdensome armor, allowing for maximum mobility while they move in for the kill.

Lodestone

Pugilists attack with hora and knuckle-dusters, and are as such close-quarters melee attackers. Their positioning plays a pivotal role in battle, with some of their weaponskills increasing their power or guaranteeing a critical hit when delivered at the side or back of their target.

Pugilists do not follow the same combo system as the other Disciplines of War, and instead they can perform attacks based on what battle form they are currently in. Most weaponskills require the Pugilist to be in a particular battle form (each of which is considered a self-buff granted by an appropriate weaponskill), and executing them will allow them to change into another form. Whenever a Pugilist cycles through the raptor, coeurl and opo-opo forms, they gain the status Greased Lightning, which improves their attack power and skill-speed. Due to this form-based combat style, while they still have deined chains of weaponskills, they have some freedom in how they begin such chains, and if they miss an attack they do not have to completely restart the skillchain. Later levels allow the Adventurer to stack the Greased Lightning status, making the Pugilist even more powerful.

Monk[edit | edit source]

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.

Lodestone

Retaining the Pugilist's mechanics, Monks differ in their aesthetic and in the quest characters. Monks place more emphasis on the "chakra" and elements of meditation, than the typical close-quarters combat arts. Monks are also seen wearing specific uniform, which is often colorful.

Story[edit | edit source]

Pugilist[edit | edit source]

The Adventurer begins the questline after speaking to the Pugilist Guild's guild receptionist Gagaruna, who directs them towards Hamon. Hamon is initially delighted to train the Adventurer, and has them train alongside his other pupil, Chuchuto Brightstar. Later, Hamon and the two encounter Hamon's former apprentice Rurukuta Tornstar, who humiliates Hamon by proving him a shadow of his former glory, and discourages him from continuing to fight. Chuchuto encourages the Adventurer to face Hamon in combat in order to help Hamon regain his strength, and after a few rounds, Hamon regains confidence. The group defeats Hamon's old adversary and crime syndicate kingpin, Weggfarr Wideaxe, and Hamon congratulates the Adventurer on their progress.

Monk[edit | edit source]

After speaking to Gagaruna again, the Adventurer is directed to Erik, found in the Goldsmith's Guild. A researcher of the "chakra", Erik assigns the Adventurer with the task of helping Widargelt, who sees the potential in the Adventurer as a Monk, research in aether-heavy areas which had seen battles fought. Widargelt revealed he was not interested in helping Erik, and was only interested in opening his own chakras in those areas, encouraging the Adventurer to do the same. After the Adventurer obtains their relic gear, Widargelt asks the Adventurer to help him restore Ala Mhigo. However, soon he learns that the Adventurer's seventh chakra had been opened and denied him of his, and attempts to defeat them; after failing, he grants the Adventurer their final relic gear piece, and declares he has learned to fight not for vengeance, but for life.

Heavensward[edit | edit source]

Speaking with Erik, the Warrior of Light learns that Widargelt intends to rebuild the Fist of Rhalgr with a new generation of monks. He introduces the Adventurer to two of his new pupils, D'zentsa and O'tchakha, a pair of Miqo'te orphans who turned up to learn from him out of the blue. Widargelt is attacked by a group of unidentified monks, and unlocked a new chakra not previously known about during the fight.

After several encounters with this rival sect, Widargelt and the Adventurer learn they belong to the 'Sect of Shadow' - an opposing sect of the old Fist of Rhalgr to Widargelt's 'Sect of Light', and that there are 14 chakra, with 7 of shadow as well as the 7 of light the Adventurer has already unlocked. Erik expands on the history of the Fist of Rhalgr, explaining that the Sect of Shadow betrayed the Sect of Light after the latter allied with the Ala Mhigan royal family. The Sect of Shadow survived the destruction of the Fist of Rhalgr's temple, and had believed the Sect of Light to be destroyed.

D'zentsa and O'tchakha reveal they are a part of the Sect of Shadow, and are using Widargelt and the Adventurer to unlock their light chakra. Widargelt and the Adventurer try to get D'zentsa and O'tchakha to cooperate rather than have their sects fight one another, but they refuse. The two later find O'tchakha on death's door. She explains that their master and father figure, a man named H'raha Tia, forced her and D'zentsa to fight to the death. Though she avoided being killed, she now fears for D'zentsa, who is still under H'raha's mercy. O'tchakha works with the Adventurer and Widargelt to try to unlock their chakra by working together so that they might rescue D'zentsa.

Ultimately, the Adventurer is able to unlock thirteen of the fourteen chakra, though the final one eludes them, and the only known way to unlock it is in a fight to the death. Though O'tchakha offers her life to unlock it, the Adventurer refuses, saying that they can fight against H'raha together instead. During the confrontation with H'raha, the Adventurer blocks his ultimate attack and in so doing unlocks their final chakra. With that power unlocked, the Adventurer is able to defeat H'raha and rescue D'zentsa. Widargelt, the Adventurer, O'tchakha, and D'zentsa all agree to work together to rebuild the Fist of Rhalgr with both sects working cooperatively.

Stormblood[edit | edit source]

Equipment[edit | edit source]

The Pugilist class is defined by wielding hora or knuckle-dusters. Functionally, they are similar to Rogue's daggers in that they are equipped as two-handed but are dual-wielded in combat.

In terms of late game armor, Pugilist and Monk wear "Striking" gear sets, which are shared with Rogues and Ninjas up through item level 110. After item level 120, Monk shares it's gear with Samurai. In terms of accessories, they generally share the "Slaying" types with Lancers, Dragoons and Samurai as they add Strength, the Pugilist's primary attribute.

Job gauge[edit | edit source]

Lightning Gauge.

Job Gauges were introduced in 4.0. The Monk has two gauges, The Lightning Gauge and the Chakra Gauge.

The Lightning Gauge shows how much Greased Lightning the Monk currently has and how much time remains on the effect. Certain skills get an increased attack speed and damage through Greased Lightning. As the Monk (or Pugilist) levels up, the amount of Greased Lightning they can store increases, up to 3 points.

Chakra Gauge.

The Chakra Gauge shows how many Chakra the Monk currently has open. These are acquired by using Meditation. Once 5 are open, Monks are able to use the Forbidden Chakra and Enlightenment.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Over the course of the Monk storyline, the adventurer does not actually seem to be taught anything by the job-instructor, Widargelt, and in fact is largely separated from him between levels 30 and 50. It is implied that their skills as a Monk are largely a continuation of their training as a Pugilist, combined with the opening of chakra through combat in aether-suffused areas, rather than being completely new abilities conferred by their soul crystal as with most other jobs.
