Rumor has it Chakra removes his poison, has any one tested this and if so, would it work if /MNK were used?

I'm going to go ahead and say Chakra does remove the poison. I'm not sure or anything but it removes all other poisons. But it is on a 5 minute recast so it seems to me like having a dedicated SCH with Accession+Poisona would be more feasible.

The poison is uncurable by the spell poisonra and antidotes, 50 a tic poison for everyone ^^b

The question is, who would bring mnk to krabkatoa? lol.

(This is coming from a mnk main, I love this job, but it's pointless bringing a job that isn't suited for a situation to that situation.)

Maybe with the 99 update mnk will get better on HNM, for now I still love using Hundred fists to zerg.

Oh, right. Sorry. I quit long before these VNMs were added.

No idea if Chakra will remove it although people said remedies do, and I've heard of some low-man mnk tanks just takes awhile so it's not like it's completely out of the question.

I don't claim to know if this works, but from my reading, I wanted to find out from others what they thought as well.
However if this is a feasible strat and if it works with /MNK, then I would have to think DNC/MNK might be a potentially useful jobset for this as well, and maybe even lower the potential hate on the mages present as well as possibly stunning some of the moves by the crab, or being able to jokevoke after the hate reset move. Not to mention the can cure themselves and possibly use Fan or Saber dances respectively.

Yeah, lord knows we would want to find a way for you to be useful on something besides Bard right?

I don't know whether this is being snarky or just retarded.

I've heard it works, haven't seen it in action. Mainly just solo/duo'd Krabkatoa. Anyway, Venom Shower isn't the biggest threat to a full group, it's Mega Scissors Hate erase that can make ***a lil tricky.

Well it depends on if you are actually doing research on the strategies Flion or just posting for the fun of it.

The question wasn't out of the blue, no pun intended, it was from researching various strategies and finding the one that people are seeming to agree is the easiest. If you don't feel your MNK would be useful in the situation that's fine, but I also know that being a bard, you probably get 10x's the amount of invites on BRD as you do MNK. I am personally glad I retired my account with 75 BRD on it, I hate being pigeon holed or forced to play someone else's way when it's not their money paying for my playtime.
It was meant as snarky, but some people are just a bit more sensitive than others, and if I offended you, I offer my apology.

No no, it's just fine, I just think a lot of people try to force jobs into situations where they don't excel, just because they can.

And I don't actually get that many invites on bard because I anon most of the time ^^

(I do all end game events as brd though, which is boring)

/facepalm. Thanks for coming out.

Unless you're bouncing it around or one of the super lowman strats with rdms, monk tank is the best way to go with krabkatoa. And yes, Chakra does remove the venom effect.
