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.
Monks are hand-to-hand fighters. Their moves include all sorts of fastly-sequenced physical combos, with a flurry of punches and kicks which build up even greater strength as they unlock their inner chakra.

Lightning Gauge in PvE
The effect can be stacked up to three times after learning the trait Enhanced Greased Lightning (acquired at level 40), four times after learning the trait Riddle of Wind at level 76. However, a fourth stack can only be gained while under the effect of Fists of Wind.
Upon learning the action Anatman, you can temporarily halt the Greased Lightning timer and maintain your present form. While the timer is halted, you will accumulate stacks of Greased Lightning and its remaining duration will be increased to maximum.
Chakra Gauge in PvE
Using actions such as Meditation and Brotherhood (acquired at level 70) open your chakra. After opening your fifth chakra, you can execute the Forbidden Chakra (acquired at level 54) and Enlightenment (acquired at level 74).
Lightning Gauge in PvP
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, improving attack speed and damage dealt. Up to three stacks can be stored at one time, with a fourth stack being granted upon executing Fists of Wind.
