Description

Center yourself and focus on your inner ki to enhance your next unarmed strike.

Mechanics

You have a 33% per rank chance of achieving an immediate tier-up, or a significant chance of earning a tier-up strike on subsequent attacks when the immediate tier-up is not successful.

Additional Information

Ki Focus remains stored for 1 minute or until the next attack. The remaining duration can be viewed with the SPELL ACTIVE command. There is no additional stamina cost if inadvertently invoked while active.

When used in conjunction with Flurry of Blows, only the first target is hit with the Ki energy.

If Krynch is not set as one's martial stance, Ki Focus is a good skill to train in. Instant tiering is a very important tactical option to have available.

Messaging

Initial activation:

>cman kifocus
You summon your inner ki and focus it to enhance your next attack.

If invoked while active:

>cman kifocus
You have already summoned your inner ki and are ready for a devastating attack.

No third-person messaging for initiating this maneuver.

Ending:

You lose the intense focus of your ki energy.
Monk loses her look of intense focus.
