Full +12 King monk with no STGs and a level 70 ninja armor and archer plume
Full +12 King trojan with no STGs and completely maxed out gears, critical refineries with grim hammers.
The monk will hit the trojan for anywhere from 10-14k, yet the stigged trojan is lucky to even hit 10k. How does it make sense that a monk with a level 70 armor and headgear takes less damage than a trojan with completely maxed out everything.
The problem is that monks have this very spammable skill, I believe you know it, whirlwind kick? Did you know it is only 10% less damage than herc, BUT it has a massive stun to replace that damage, making it insanely easy to use wwk in quick succession. Even if they don't 1 hit you the first time, they will the second time if you are still low. And if more than 1 monk is attacking you, or a monk and a fire tao, don't even try to fight back because you'll be stun locked until the monk is out of stamina. Now add onto this the fact that guards are available to every class. which many monks use. Normally it wouldn't be a big deal, but when you can't move, well... nuf said.
I'm not plus 12, but this is not at all my experience in skill pk and this is not at all what a plus 12 in the regular forum is saying.

Me Vs. a monk with comparable BP. They wwk. I laugh and jump out of it. They wwk. I laugh and jump out of it. They wwk. I laugh. They wwk kick again. I laugh. I Dragonwhirl. One hit. They're dead.

Me Vs. a monk with way more BP. They wwk. I Dragonwhirl. They one hit me or I one hit them.

Me Vs. a monk in skill pk. They wwk. I take almost no dmg at all. I laugh. Two hit with herc while they are wwking me or one hit with dragonwhirl.

You're right. That doesn't make sense. Which is why there is likely a reason for it you are not properly relaying although I don't think defense plays much of a factor anyway so probebly doesn't matter what type of armor they're using so long as they have the same BP. Probebly that increased critical skill they have. So they're hitting a critical while you're not. But at any rate. Trojan is not meant to be a tank. Plus 12 in the other forum is saying wwk will never one hit max trojan (which 14k sure shouldn't) while stig dragonwhirl one hits a max monk. Not to mention you can do two hercs in the time they do one wwk anyway. So say they do wwk you for 14k. You herc them while they're doing it. 20k. They're dead. Not sure why you would ever have a problem with said monk. Yes. I am dead serious. Aside from soul shackle even monks with better gears than me are not much of a threat at all comparatively. They are for you and it's likely a problem with you and not the game itself.
