Does your character not excel in his/her weapons? Don't fret! As long as your character has the Bare-Knuckle Brawler skill, it'll be able to dish out decent damage even without any equipment. It's also a great skill to have for all characters since it can save you a lot of money from buying weapons as well.

Below are the weapons proficiencies for the Monk job. Refer to this section to know which weapons are best suited for the Monk job.
Horten is the last (?) boss you'll fight in Chapter 1. He posses the Monk Asterisk and is a fighter that relies on banking Brave Points to unleash combos to a single target.
With the Monk's innate HP pool, the Hellblade works extremely well with the Monk class. This is due to Hellblade's Minus Strike that can deal damage to the enemy based on the amount of HP your character has lost. It can also fully utilize the Hellblade's Carnelian Blades thanks to Firebird's flame resistance reduction property.
Another combo to note is if you equip your Monk/Hellblade with the Sub-Job Speciality 1, you will gain the ability to heal massive amounts of HP and MP in the middle of battle by partnering it with Invigorate. An undying class that can get stronger and stronger thanks to Concentration!
