    Default End Quest Rewards

    I have the boxed checked. I am a monk.
    I have received some incredible frost returning throwing darts, a flaming BS, acid Dwarven axe of deception, Returning throwing axes, yada yada... However, as a monk I have yet to receive any decent handwraps or returning shuriken.
    Is it worth having that boxed checked?

    Chest loot; the same results, and I have been using the loot gems from the DDO store...

    Are monk weapons uncommon or it is just bad luck of the draw for me on Khyber?

    And AH prices are outrageous.

    --A very loot disappointed monk.

    I was complaining about the very same thing the other day... I love it when my dorf barb is offered 3 sets of studded leather, a quarterstaff, and a nmenonic pot. :/

    On my monk I get LOTS of outfits and handwraps. Is your problem they don't appear on the list, or those that appear are junk? (which is to be expected for 99% of random loot).

    2 questions.

    1. are you a pure monk? if you've multi-classed you'll get the other classes loot options too. On my pure monk in a standard quest I've never gotten anything other than monk weapons and outfits (not counting mnemonic pots, those seem to be standard regardless of class). Of course they're generally crappy but it's to be expected given the random nature of the tables.

    2. On the quests that you get the non-monk items are they quest chains? i.e. Delara's, Threnal, etc. Because these don't follow the same rule as standard quests and give regular stuff that monks can't use.

    If you're pure, doing standard quests, and still getting non-monk weapons and armor options then I'd say it's a bug of some sort.

    Yes, this is the case. I leveled my last monk to 9 or 10 before looting a single pair of holy handwraps, and pretty much junk before then. There is definitely a lack of good low level handwraps in a lot of the level appropriate quests that get run a lot (most of the harbor) and NONE of the end rewards for the chain quests have ANY handwraps. Try to focus on the newer low level content, like the quests in cerulean, and the sharn sindicate chain. I think the newer quests have updated loot tables that have more handwraps. I have also noticed that the necropolis quests seem to drop a lot of good handwraps, as does threnal, athough at level 4 you aren't gonna be running those soon, except maybe the first of the tomb series. I think this deserves a separate Monk forum thread.

    Im sure you meant BS by its biblical term

    Also most of the end rewards given to monks are vendor trash. Even when they are offering handwraps or outfits. Best thing I got for my monk as a quest erward was from the end of the Sharn Syndicate. It was a no min level bound to ACCOUNT Feather Fall Boots. The good ones that are persistant effect not a clickie.

    Other than that nothing good. I am lvl 12 atm and anything worthwhile I have had to purchase off of the AH. You may be able to find some good cheap kamas as alot of monks prefer to use their fists. So maybe look into Kamas until you start to bankroll some cash to purchase the items needed to achieve ultimate monkitude.

    I must be having better luck than most. While I am only at 8th lvl, I have got about a dozen HW though none of them have been pure good or holy, so you guys may have pulled the same ones as me, but discounted them as not good. I have received 2 pairs of the ones that increase the DCs for trip and sunder, 2 pairs of ghost touch, 1 pair that adds 1d6 shock damage and additional shocking crit damage, a pair of lawful wraps and several pairs of +2 and +3 HW.

    While sometimes I get nothing of interest, I usually get a couple outfits or robes as well as a kama or some other weapon that is useful to monks.

    Thanks,
    Ez

    I have to agree here. Most quest reward i get are useless for me.
    Its a small price to pay for putting foot to @ss for king and country.

    On my pure rangerette I get alot of pots for spell casters and yes, a lot of different monkey handwraps. To me they're just like money because I sell them. I've yet to loot anything worthwhile that I can use for my class.

    I very seldom get any loot my monk can use or is worth using. Except for the Black Widow Bracers from the Lost Seekers Quest. Several different toons a lot of them monks ran the chain and they came up once on my second try with this monk.

    I am going to uncheck the specific loot box for a couple of days and see if the vendor trash doesn't improve some. Seems like the other classes get better choices for loot than monks do. Has anyone running more than one class noticed this?

    I have loot specific end rewards turned on with my 20 monk in hopes of getting +5 metalline of pure good wraps. I generally get 3-4 hand wraps per end reward, 3-4 outfits of worthlessness, and some random q-staffs/cloths/jewelry. The cool thing is, i get alot of major mana pots, more than my casters do, which 95% of the time is the best end reward to pick.

    As for returning shurikens, in all the chests/end rewards ive looted, ive only seen one returning shuriken, and thats the one from STK

    Another good returning shuriken is available at the end of Co6. I don't remember the name at the moment, but it's the "snowflake" one that's icy burst. Of course, my paladin couldn't use it.

    It also sounds like I should put the ml6 +2 acid HW of lesser ooze bane in the AH...might actually get a decent price.

    Good luck & good looting!
