MMORPG.com Atlantica Online Correspondent Andrew Corpuz writes this look at the issue surrounding the double Monk issue in Atlantica Online and gives some possible solutions.
A mercenary has come into quite a bit of question in the recent months. Though the monk has always been a staple of PvP formations since the beginning, it was rare to see him twice in a formation. With low vitality and low offensive powers, a second monk seemed almost silly to those hoping to achieve top tier in Free League matches.
But as magic damage increased, causing AOE builds to become the dominant force, the importance of Holy Guard started to grow, like lava oozing out of a dormant volcano. The monk's Holy Guard ability to nullify magic skills became near essential for victory. Yet, still then, a second monk was rare.
