Hey guys, I'm about to go do Maat soon at 70 and was wondering, what would be a better weapon for the fight? Hades Sainti or Cross Counters? Thanks.

I used Feral Fangs for the bigger damage (Since my strat was Chi > Raging Fists > Raging Fist > Hundred Fists > Raging Fist). I went for max damage as fast as possbile. The lower delay of my TM+2 Hooks really had no benefit for my strategy and I could do without the -Def. I didn't have Cross-Counters at the time, but I probably would have used them instead of Feral Fangs if I did.

If Hades Sainti existed when I fought Maat, I most likely would have used those.

I also don't think it really matters, I fought Maat with Stun Jamadhars.

Well I had the absolute worst Maat experience. Jumped into the BCNM and equipped my Opo-opo necklace and used a sleeping potion. What I didn't know was I needed 4 of them to reach 100% tp. No biggy I thought, maybe I could still pull it off. Go to equip my Blink Band, and forgot to even buy it. If that's not enough, I ran straight into the BCNM without using Carbonara and Au Lait drink. When I went and use my Focus macro, I accidently hit my Vile Elixir +1 macro to regain a whole 120HP. Worst Maat fight ever -_-.

What's the quickest place to get a Monk's Testimony to drop? I got my first one in Davoi while helping a friend with coffer keys, but I remember there only being 4-5 MNK Orcs spawning at once. Anyone know a better place that's also safe too?

Man, how many people have had success with the Hermes Quencher method? 3 losses in a row so far, going to try the traditional method for #4 as this is getting really annoying and expensive now. Multiple Vile Elixirs and Vile Elixirs +1 and ven bought a Stoneskin Torque which barely went off. -_-


edit: I honestly don't recommend the Hermes Quencher strategy to anyone. I got tagged with a couple of shots while running away on all 3 attempts. The WS spam routine is fool-proof and extremely easy to win. Maat WILL WS you if you use the Hermes strat, but may or may not in the WS spam making him a lot easier. My strat was followed in the video was this:

Persikos au Lait
Carbonara
Blink Band
Stoneskin Torque (hard to find one for sale but was lucky enough to snag one. Wore off quickly in 3rd fight because I popped it too early, but lasted about 2-3 shots in the 4th fight right after my Blink wore off. Both of them together gave Maat 5-6 worthless shots against me.)
Vile Elixir +1 (May not be necessary if you use Chakra or a regular Vile Elixir. By the time I used it, Maat was already beat making it kind've worthless)
Icarus Wing
Sleeping Potions
Opo-Opo Necklace

Same strat everyone else used really. 100TP from Sleep, open with a 6x boost Chi Blast and Hundred Fists on. RF - Icarus Wing - RF - Win. Don't bothering buying +Evasion equipment or anything like that. I used everything I XP with, except replaced my Hades Sainti/Raven Beret with Cross Counters and Empress Hairpin and Fumas with Seikenshi Habaki since I was 2houring. No Tiphia Sting either as I didn't feel like losing 25HP for a couple extra stat boosts.

Just gunna ask this here:

During the part where you hundred fists Maat, would it be a good idea to have Footwork up to boost dragon kick instead of using howling fist? I think footwork doesn't make you kick during hundred fists but I haven't ever done that combo.

Hundred Fists overwrites Footwork. The icon is still there but i don't think you get any of the bonuses. We'll have to test.

I beat Maat as a level 69 MONK. All the strategies I looked up at the various sites were garbage for me. I finally used a word of mouth strategy and gave it my own personal spin and he went down easily. It took me 8 times. You have to do everything perfectly. With that said, there was a rumor long ago that whatever stats from gear you went in with, he had. Then they said that rumor was not true or it had been fixed. Well I finally went in naked at the start and he was so easy on that fight I only needed two WS's (instead of 3) and no heals. I got him down in 7 minutes flat with 406 HP to spare.

Gear: Full AF (macroed in when using JA's and WS's)
Scorpion Harness
Palla's Bracelets
Chivalry Chain
Life Belt
Cobra Unit Cap
Amemet Mantle
Sun Ring and Tiger Ring
2 Coral Earrings

Weapon
Tactical Magitians Hooks

I had a Vile Elixer +1 and an Icarus wing which I ended up not needing.

Steps:
1. sleep potion with opopo necklace to 100 tp
2. boost
3. regen drink - Persiskos Au Lait
4. Boost
5. Defense food - Carbonara
6. Boost
7. Blink Band
8. continue to boost - I boosted until 9
9. Engage Maat without hitting (don't get too close).
10. Use Focus and Dodge then boost 1 last time.
11. Use 2 hour.
12. Then chi blast (he comes at you, I was real close to turned into him.
13. Then Howling Fist.
14. keep hitting until tp is 100% again from the 100 fists.
15. Howling Fist

At this point he went down for me. I only needed the 2nd WS to take him down on lights day with a new moon.

If he isn't down for you then you may need to use the vile elixar.
Use Icarus wing and use final WS. If he's still not down, I imagine it is because you are already dead.

Good luck!

Incase you didn't know ... The Icarus Wing gives medicated effect. You can only use once.

Followed Lillee's strat with a small change after 3 losses (including one that was most horrible...he never missed, not a SINGLE time, not to mention 4 counters and 3 crits...)

1) With a +25 MND setup, 10 boost chi blast hit for 510 damage.
2) Howling Fist hit for 516 damage
3) Popped Icarus Wing*
4) Howling Fish for 568
5) Had to use a Vile Elixir +1 as he had me down to 200 HP after a series of hits.

Did not get to build up to another 100 tp to finish him. Give up message came at 2,629 damage done, but I hit him 3 times after for a total of 2,715.

*I chose to pop an icarus wing for a couple reasons. I expected the big chi blast to howling fist would cause him to Hundred Fist immediately, this did not happen. If I waited, I might not have had to burn my vile elixir, though I still planned on using the icarus wing. However, if he did use hundred fists, I may have been in trouble with the delay on items.

The other reason is that I figured if I get it out of the way first, all I have to focus on after that is healing myself with the elixirs. On my 2nd fight, I used a Vile Elixir +1 and then tried to use the iccy wing and it wouldn't let me, presumably through item delay (like after using an emp band). I lost because of that.

Just did it 20mins ago! 1/4 finally!

Galka Lvl68
Moonphase: Waning Gibbous 30% I think

Weapon: T.M. Hooks +2
Ammo: Musk Sachet
Head: Temple Crown
Neck: Chiv Chain
Ear1: Merman's Earring
Ear2: Spike Earring
Body: SH +1
Hand: O-Kote
Ring1: Victory Ring +1
Ring2: Victory Ring
Back: Amemet Mantle +1
Waist: Brown Belt
Legs: Strike Subligar
Feet: Wulong Shoes

Food: Sole Sushi (forget the +1, it doesn't help much and cost much more)
Drink: None. The real fight (after engagement) last for about 20sec, why bother with any refreshments :P
Meds: None, not that I chose to, read on.

Walked in fully dressed with Blink Band & Stoneskin Torque (in place of listed Head & Neck)
Blinked & Stoneskined and switch back to normal gears.
Eat Food
Boost X 9
Focus + Dodge
Walk into engaging range and Engaged from afar
Hundred Fists + Chi Blast (302 Damage) and start running along with the fireball towards the old man.
Watch TP closely
98% -> 103% then
Immediately hit off Howling Fist (only 121 damage, rotten luck) then
Immediately consume Icarus Wing then
Immediately hit off another Howling Fist (521 this time).
Then PRAYED and spam my fingers onto my macros of Vile Elixir +1 and Vile Elixir while letting my Hundred Fists do its job!!
BUT, somehow in the heat of the fight, none of the Vile Elixir macros (1 for normal Vile Elixir, 1 for +1) worked so I pretty much took Maat down without meds!
303hp(/1536) and 10sec worth of Hundred Fists left!

Things to note:
- If this is your first Maat fight, be warned that it all happened sooooo fast. I started the fight with Hundred Fists, and the fight ended with 10 secs worth of HF left! Do the math, it's at least less than 30 seconds, more like 20 seconds!
- REMEMBER! It's a 20second fight, EVERY milli-second counts!
- I did nothing wrong with my Vile Elixir macro (I wasted a Vile Elixir to test it out AFTER the fight after I've rested to full :P), sometimes it just won't work during battle!!!! But then, my fight proved that you DON'T need meds anyway.
- In my past failures, I tried to Boost too many times and managed to get over 500 damage on Maat with the initial Chi Blast. That ticked him off and used his Hundred Fists way too early.
- When Maat's Hundred Fists start, you have about 7 punches worth of time to live even if you are relatively full of hp.
- DO NOT, AND DO NOT EVER, hold of on the 2nd WS, you need it to kick in as soon as the first one's done. Imagine a Skillchain, only except you have to do the 2nd one soooo soon after the 1st one that even if it's a skillchain it won't take effect.
- You probably won't have time for 3rd WS. Throughout my 4 tries (all the past 3 failures were executed flawlessly, but the plannings were off), I never managed to get the 3rd one off.
- I walked in naked in the past 3 tries, and that didn't help :P
- In my worst fight, I did 11 Boost and did the Opo-Opo/Sleep Potion to 100%TP method, the Chi Blast & Howling Fist combo immediately reduce Maat to about 60% and he immediately used Hundred Fists and I died in 7 punches plus a few counters :P
- Unless you have absolutely beautiful counter gears, DO NOT use Counterstance. It reduces your natural DEF to ZERO!!! Although you might counter a few, but when Maat lands a hit (and that happen more often than you'd think), it went from 100'ish DMG to 200-300DMG a punch!
- You don't have to worry too much about -EVA gears (don't give up STR, ATT over EVA), I tried with MAJOR +EVA gears and the old man still gets you 98% of the time.

Previous Failures

- Failure 1: Used Counterstance, don't have Stoneskin Torque (none on the AH at the time).
- Failure 2: Boosted too many times and in combination with WS triggered Maat's HF too soon.
- Failure 3: Waited for about 2 sec before using 2nd WS (as if I was doing Skillchain), managed to consume the costly Icarus Wing but died before 2nd WS went off (they were in the same macro).

That's all I can think of for now, GL fellow MNKs!!!!

I did a 710 Howling Fist on my second attempt.

Needless to say he 2houred and for some reason I didn't evade anything so I died in 3 seconds...

Weapon: Cross-Counters
Ammo: Tiphia Sting
Head: Raven' Beret / Temple Crown (The only MND piece I bothered using)
Neck: Peacock Charm
Ear1: Merman's Earring
Ear2: Merman's Earring
Body: Scorpion Harness +1
Hand: O-Kote
Ring1: Woodsman Ring
Ring2: Sniper's Ring +1
Back: Amemet Mantle +1
Waist: Brown Belt/Life Belt
Legs: Republic Subligar
Feet: Seikenshi Habaki

Preparation:
Food: Carbonara
Opo-Opo Necklace + 4 sleeping potions
Icarus Wing and a Vile Elixir +1 (neither of which I used)

The Fight:
1) I used my 4 sleeping potions to obtain 100 TP.
2) I boosted to 10 and used Focus on the 6th boost, Dodge on the 7th boost.
3) I engaged, Chi Blasted, then used Hundred Fists followed by a Raging Fists immediately after.
4)I used Howling Fists once I built up 100 TP, then used Chakra and before I could use my Icarus Wing I finished him.

I was kind of disappointed: the fight didn't seem challenging at all with proper preparation.

My strategy differs from most mainly at the start of the fight. ( i beat maat the first time with this strategy) kind of the broke persons guide since this was my first 75.

First get to 70 and make sure your wep is capped. I capped my evasion too but that was just me. Get pretty much attack/ acc gear. Scorpion harness, fang earrings, sun rings (or higher) chiv chain, past that get creative.

I made a whole new set of macros for this fight. all are pretty much standard. (keep your temple gloves on until you go to fight him or longer for the enhanced boost.) Chakra with your af chest piece dodge with your af feet. boost and wep macros. one important macro i'll tell later for when your fighting him. Oh I dont know if it makes a diff or not but when you go in go naked to start if it doesn't matter then you waist 3 sec if it does then thats a lot better.


Anyway when you go in there do the normal opa necklace and 4 sleeping potions. I used a Coeurl Sub (stats.. Attack +20% Ranged Attack +20% MP +10 Strength +5 Agility +1 Intelligence -2 HP Regeneration While Healing +1 Resist Stun Resist Sleep) boost on your way to him. when you get to boost 10 start using focus and dodge also make sure you USE FOOTWORK at the start (also right before you use this macro make sure you have hundred fist active. Now this is where I differ from a lot of peoples strategy's... instead of 2hing and chi blasting him do something a little diff. Here is the macro you will need for this opening...

/a <t>
/wait 2
/ws "dragon kick" <t>

This will make it so that you will.. well how i like to say it, drop kick him to start. you might want to play around with the time between 2 and 3. It typically works for me but some times its a bit glitchy and needs the 3.

After this your 2hr will get you all the tp you need you might have to use chakra in there but by the time you get off your next ws he should be dead (or was for me).
