Yeah ive been trying to figure this out also plus with later lvls I noticed that mnk is going to be useing a lot of INT for some reason not sure why yet but I know the af gear has oalot of INT and other things ive been reading on other forums if any one could tell me how INT effects mnk and or pgl id love to find out
If you're going to look at gear, look at http://xivdb.com because the older sites use the old attribute system (which were overhauled for ARR) are are no longer applicable. INT used to affects all attacks that had an elemental affinity (Red Lotus Blade, for example) so that's the reason why. In the new system that's no longer the case.
Case in point:
Old Temple Circlet:
Reduces Shoulder Tackle Recast
New Temple Circlet:
51 Magical Defense
The database doesn't show any of the special modifiers on gear yet (i.e. akin to reduces Shoulder Tackle recast), but the stats are completely overhauled.
