Monk wearing Artifact Armor
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.

Monk Concept Art

Monk is a job that specializes in hand-to-hand combat. Monk evolves from the class pugilist. It is a melee damage dealing class specializing in single target dps. Monks have all the abilities and traits of Pugilists. They can also use all the cross-class abilities of lancer and marauder. The most important stat for the monk is strength, which increases attack power. The level of your monk is equivalent to that of your Pugilist.
