The Peacebringer should be a pretty big upgrade over Wu’s and it is worth buying if you can afford it. It’s droppable so use it until you can afford a better weapon. Just don’t overpay because it’s going to be a pain to resell when you are done with it.

At 47 grobb guards would be decent exp and plat. They drop 12pp sword every kill and can buy bandages in zone and bank with a little effort.

What level is monk? Take a look at ratio of monk fists. If better ratio than trance stick, sell stick and mainhand KD's. KD > Trance mainhand always.

edit - oh, level 46.. Sell Trance stick now!!! Go KD Mainhand / Bare Fist offhand for dual wield setup.

I can't imagine playing EQ in 2023 and 3k plat is a deal breaker to not get an IFS over a Peacebringer.

If you were on blue I'd ping my buddy just to log on and give you the damn plat.

6.0 wt is nothing to sneeze at. Also slower moar better.

OP is on Green, not Blue. On Blue I agree that Peacebringer in general isn't worth getting due to how cheap IFS is on Blue. On Green Peacebringer is 3k, and IFS is 10k. The difference is 7k. Still not a huge sum of money for a lot of players these days, but for OP it's obviously a lot of money. On Green there is less plat and I assume more competition for money spots too.

From my current play experience on my Monk, getting a 0.11 boost in ratio is going to improve survivability more than reducing 6.0 stones. Quivering Staff has a 0.82 ratio and Peacebringer has a 0.93 ratio. The AC loss just isn't that noticeable, at least when you are below 50. With OP's current armor setup, they can stay under the weight limit with Peacebringer if they want to.

My monk is currently 47 and my other character is a 51 cleric. I'm not farming guards lol I just can't

Toxi:

Since green opened the most I've ever managed to get was 6k at one point, I had got a thick banded belt while camping guise on cleric, and the thick banded belt was a lucky roll to win the ONLY high value item I have ever obtained myself in a group across all of classic EQ, all of my years on Blue server, and the couple on green. I am not a very lucky player, I have not been able to farm money or items well. On blue I mained bard and wizard.

Maybe next season of green I'll open up with a shaman or enchanter like everyone else. I took the difficult road here it seems

I'd set up shop in Sebilis on your cleric and try to get into groups and start looting gems and rolling for loot.

You could find yourself in a disco group (or just duo w/ an enc) and looting your own IFS.

Go back to your monk after getting a good chunk through 60 and twink the shit out of it.

What? Trance stick far exceeds knuckle duster DPS for the main hand. Are you not taking the main hand damage bonus into account?

Wu stick ratio is trash. If you do the primary formula utilizing the final damage bonus of 11 the knuckle dusters still win out. Might be a tie if you factor in some of the wu procs.

Either way better off going jade mace in primary and KD in OH.

^^ This

Even with damage bonus, KD > Wu

Jade mace best option.
