Weapons

Note: Monk can equip both Clubs and Staves also. However, Hand-to-Hand delivers the same type of damage (blunt), has a generally higher Damage to second ratio, has A+ skill as a monk compared to B, and is also the only weapon affected by the Martial Arts trait. I may at a later time add some staves and clubs that Monks may use.

Hand to Hand

Legionnaire's Knuckles 10 +4 +96 Accuracy +2 Attack +3 1,000 CP Bastok Weapon. Rank 1, any placement.
Republic Knuckles 15 +6 +76 HP+3 MP+3 Accuracy +2 Attack +3 +1 version of the Lvl 15 Bastokan Knuckles. Seriously suggest the Republic Knuckles; these last a long time, are relatively inexpensive, and are truly the best you can get.
Metal Knuckles +1 20 +7 +91 Accuracy +3 Only the +1 are possibly better than the Republic Knuckles, and some argue that this isn't even the case. Based on the attack bonus and lower delay of Bastokan knuckles it is hard to tell if Metal Knuckles +1 yield better damage.
Boreas Cesti Trans-rareTrans-exclusive 30 +6 +48 Additional effect: Wind damage Wind damage activates 100% of the time causing an additional 0-7 points of damage. Dropped from Kirata (NM) 41 Beaucedine Glacier.

Tactician Magician's Hooks 50 +15 +91 Attack +10 DEF -10
Cross-Counters 50 +19 +96 Accuracy +3 Evasion -10 "Counter" +5 Considered the most powerful for the purpose of single hits and WS damage, however very costly. One option is to camp Western Shadow to Obtain the Rare/Ex version Retaliators.) If time and Gil are a factor Tactician Magician's Hooks +2 can be used till 72, these are not mandatory. BCNM 60 treasure from Brothers D'Aurphe.
Tactician Magician's Hooks +2 52 +16 +71 Attack +10 DEF -10 In areas outside own nation's control: CHR +4 The normal quality form of Tactician Magician's Hooks until 52 Tactician Magician's Hooks +2 or Tactician Magician's Hooks +1. However, the +2 form is argued by some all to be better in Damage over Time.
Birdbanes Trans-rare Trans-exclusive 54 +14 +84 Vs. Birds: Accuracy +3 Hidden effect: Piercing damage instead of blunt. weapon skills are still blunt. drops off Chaneque in Batallia Downs (S)
Hades Sainti 70 +18 +51 Accuracy +7 Evasion +7 Subtle Blow +7 Enmity +7 Good damage but generally not recommended for party use because of the +enmity. Good weapons for solo play and also tanking situations such as Salvage.
Shenlong's Baghnakhs Trans-rareTrans-exclusive 71 +21 +51 STR +3 Accuracy +10

Double Attack +1% Subtle Blow +3

Dropped from Pandemonium Warden (Tier V ZNM). Quite possibly the best non-relic h2h weapon in the game. Problem is, it drops off of the second most difficult NM in the game after Absolute Virtue.
Wagh Baghnakhs Trans-rare 72 +13 +60 Latent Effect: DMG +18

Hidden Effect: Attack +14, Accuracy +5

Good for TP burn parties. Latent effect is active while TP < 100% (includes Weapon Skills). Hidden Effects are also triggered under this latent. ENM treasure from Like the Wind and Boneyard Gully

Amazing weapon that beats everything that came before it with the possible exception of Shenlong's Baghnakhs (which are not an easy weapon to get at the moment). In any case, Destroyers are a BCNM treasure from Copycat, Double Dragonian or Royale Ramble
Faith Baghnakhs Trans-rareTrans-exclusive 73 +9 +113 MND +7 Virtue stone equipped: Occasionally attacks twice Dropped from Jailer of Faith
Glanzfaust Trans-rareTrans-exclusive 75 +20 +96 Augments "Focus" and "Dodge", "Ascetic's Fury", Aftermath: Increases Acc./Atk., Occasionally attacks twice Mythic Weapon (even hard to get with 18000 alexandrite which cost 6k on Titan = 151 million gil.)

Armor

Note: most of these armor selections are made on the assumption that the Monk you are designing will do what 99.99% of Monks do, dish out damage. You may wish to carry other pieces of equipment to offset the general rule that good armor for melee, is bad for defense.

Bronze Mittens or RSE 1 1
Tekko 8 2
Legionnaire's Mittens 10 3 Attack +3
Battle Gloves 14 4 Accuracy +3, Evasion +3 A very good set of DD gloves because of its +ACC, these will last a long time. In the same ironic twist, these are the best hand gear till 25, 27, 30, and 34.Some people choose to use these for even longer though because of the ACC+.
Federation Tekko 25 7 Accuracy +3, Ranged Accuracy +3 Same +Acc as the Battle Gloves, however this has more DEF. The Windurstian have less +ACC and should not be used.
Ochiudo's Kote or Ochimusha Kote Trans-rareTrans-exclusive 34 8 Attack +20, Evasion -5 This is considered the best piece for hands until possibly end game. However, this is a very pricy piece, but a must for those seriously wanting to take MNK to level 75.
Horomusha Kote Trans-rare 34 7 Attack +15 A great alternative to the O.Kotes, a lot of people use it because it is both cheaper, and has no minus evasion which can be deadly in many scenarios.

Fuma Kyahan or Sarutobi Kyahan Trans-rareTrans-exclusive 39 7 Haste +3% Debatable due to the relatively high price compare to other items. The effect of haste is enhanced by having other haste equipment (e.g. Link title) and haste spell/song cast on. But seeing as how as haste at lower levels does not make a significant difference, it would be best to stick to Federation Kyahan until Kung Fu Shoes.
