Welcome to my Martial Artist Guide! I'm Engelen(AKA LSnake on Gamefaqs),
a level 214 Martial Artist, played Anarchy Online since January 2002.
I have played several high level Martial Artist Alts and have also worked as a
Martial Artist Professional on the forums.

Attention:
This FAQ is rewritten from my original guide at the official
Anarchy Online forums, located at this url:
http://forums.anarchy-online.com/showthread.php
?s=205b2335e80888e24a954b7c35288b3c&threadid=213250

Naturally, I had to make some rather big changes to the setup,
several things had to be removed and/or modified, but I still think it will
serve well here too. The Layout had to be rather heavily modified to fit into
a FAQ here, but I'll do my best to make it work. 

Note: This guide requires you to know the basic of the game to fully understand
the contents of this guide.

Note 2: This guide requires an Internet Connection if you want to get the 
maximum out of it. It can still be read and enjoyed without it, but most items
and equipment have much more information online. 

I hope you will enjoy it! If you want to correct any errors, contribute 
anything you might think should be here or get in touch with me, feel free to

*******************************************************************************

So you decide to make a new Martial Artist!

Its a very good choice, Martial Artstis are absolutely one of the
strongest professions in the game, very good at soloing,
while being a strong part of any teams.

There are several factors that make the Martial Artist profession so good:
-Great Damage (Especially in the latter part of the game)
-Very good Evades (Also kicking in after 140)
-Decent Heals
-Very Cheap, Dont need Weapons
-Implants and Skills are set up nice

Before we continue, I`d like to explain a bit.
Skills, like "Martial Arts", "Brawl", "Evades" and more are based
upon your "Base Abilities". Base Abilities again, are based upon what
Breed you choose. With this fresh in mind, lets look at the most important
skill of all, "Martial Arts". Based on 50% Agility, 20% Strength and
30% Psychic, we can now see that if you want to go for
max MA skill and Attack Rating, choose a Breed with high Agility,
and preferably Strength and Psychic very close.

I`d like to present a an overview of the breedcaps for
the different Breeds at level 200 and 220:

+---------+
| Solitus |
+---------+

Solitus is a well-rounded breed fit for most professions, and is
also a very good choice for Martial Artists.

+-----------------------+
| Level 200 Ability Cap |
+=======================+
| Strength        | 472 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Agility         | 480 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Stamina         | 480 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Intelligence    | 480 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Sense           | 480 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Psychic         | 480 |
+-----------------------+

+-----------------------+
| Level 220 Ability Cap |
+=======================+
| Strength        | 772 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Agility         | 780 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Stamina         | 780 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Intelligence    | 780 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Sense           | 780 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Psychic         | 780 |
+-----------------------+


+--------+
| Opifex |
+--------+

Opifex is the best breed for Martial Artists. They have a very high
Agility and Sense, with Strength close behind. Slightly lower Health
than Solius, but far more Evades and Martial Arts skills makes them the
best breed.

+-----------------------+
| Level 200 Ability Cap |
+=======================+
| Strength        | 464 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Agility         | 544 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Stamina         | 480 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Intelligence    | 464 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Sense           | 512 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Psychic         | 448 |
+-----------------------+

+-----------------------+
| Level 220 Ability Cap |
+=======================+
| Strength        | 764 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Agility         | 944 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Stamina         | 680 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Intelligence    | 764 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Sense           | 912 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Psychic         | 748 |
+-----------------------+


+-------+
| Atrox |
+-------+

Awesome Health, Strength and Stamina makes the Atrox Breed a very
sturdy and strong MA, but in terms of MA Skills they fall behind alot.

+-----------------------+
| Level 200 Ability Cap |
+=======================+
| Strength        | 512 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Agility         | 480 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Stamina         | 512 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Intelligence    | 400 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Sense           | 400 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Psychic         | 400 |
+-----------------------+

+-----------------------+
| Level 220 Ability Cap |
+=======================+
| Strength        | 912 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Agility         | 780 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Stamina         | 912 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Intelligence    | 600 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Sense           | 600 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Psychic         | 600 |
+-----------------------+


+----------+
| Nanomage |
+----------+

The weakest of the four breeds, the Nanomage does not have any real
advantage compared to the other three breeds. The only thing that helps
out, is the huge nanopool and the higher nanoskills than the other breeds
but this is rarely worth 

+-----------------------+
| Level 200 Ability Cap |
+=======================+
| Strength        | 464 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Agility         | 464 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Stamina         | 448 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Intelligence    | 512 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Sense           | 480 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Psychic         | 512 |
+-----------------------+

+-----------------------+
| Level 220 Ability Cap |
+=======================+
| Strength        | 664 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Agility         | 664 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Stamina         | 748 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Intelligence    | 912 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Sense           | 780 |
+-----------------+-----+
| Psychic         | 912 |
+-----------------------+


From that comparison, you can see that if you wanna go for the absolute best,
choose Opifex. Close second is Solitus with higher Strength and Psychic
but much lower Agility, with Atrox and Nanomage on Third and Fourth.
While a Nanomage may look okay on paper, they are unfortunately too weak
and have little HP. Remember that if your Evades doesnt hold,
you only got your HP, since their heals wont be enough at higher levels.

So, to conclude the breed, in best order:

1. Opifex
2. Solitus
3. Atrox
4. Nanomage

Keep in mind that if you choose Atrox,
you will have problems casting the highest nanos on lower levels
unless you have Nano Skill towers/200+ Implants/Perks into Abilities
which causes drip offs. This has become easier after Shadowlands though,
with perks and new equipment making up for the low int/psy.

No Matter what you choose, the good thing here is that all of these breeds
have their good sides, but only Atrox and Nanomages have
actually any "lesser" sides.
Atroxes have problem with Nanoskills and Nano Pool,
but they regain it by having the highest HP of all the MA breeds.
Nanomages can easily selfcast the highest MA nanos before any other,
and can have a very good Nanopool(which helps healing),
but they have a very low HP.

*** 3: Skills [3SKI]                                                        ***
*******************************************************************************

Martial Artists have a quite acceptable skill setup, most skills are very cheap
except the nanoskills, but you will mostly only need four Nanoskills, not all 
of them, so it isn't that bad.

I`ll do a little summary of the importance of Base Abilities first. Depending
on your breed and playstyle, there is no set choice of which to increase, you
will have to consider several factors before deciding what abilities to
increase.

+---------+
| AGILITY |
+---------+
Agility is very important for a Martial Artist. It's used for Martial Arts,
Evades, Armor, Implants and lots of drip off skills. The Tier Armor has this
as the primary Requirement.


+----------+
| STRENGTH |
+----------+
Strength is also important since Martial Arts is based upon it, and its used 
for equipping a lot of good armor. The Tier Armor uses it as the second
requirement. Other skills that benefit from it is Brawl and Runspeed.

+--------------+
| INTELLIGENCE |
+--------------+
Important. The main point with Intelligence is all the drip off points into
Nano Skills, which you will need to selfcast the highest buffs at lowest
possible level.


+---------+
| STAMINA |
+---------+
The Three main points with Stamina is equipping armor, increasing
Body Development and Implants. Not directly so much affecting Martial Arts,
but important for a lot of other things.


+---------+
| PSYCHIC |
+---------+
Believe it or not, Psychic is an important skill since it is used for 
Martial Arts and Nano Pool. If you cannot increase both Psychic and Max Nano,
go for Psychic as it gives you more Martial Arts in addition to free Max Nano.


+-------+
| SENSE |
+-------+
Back in the earlier days, Sense was considered as a very important MA skill.
It is primary used as the ability which Evades and Physical Init is based on,
but MA Armor and Equipment is also dependent on it.


+------------------+
| BODY DEVELOPMENT |
+------------------+
Very Important since it increases your Max Health. Keep this as high as 
possible, since it is very vital for keeping you alive.


+----------+
| MAX NANO |
+----------+
Important since the bigger nanopool you have, the more heals you can cast
without needing to recharge, and the longer you can stay alive.


*******************************************************************************
*** 3.1: Primary Skills [31SK]                                              ***
*******************************************************************************

These are the skills you should be focusing on. In order for you to do damage
and survive, this is what you must increase. Always max Martial Arts, and keep
Physical Init and Evades VERY high, max if possible.

+--------------+
| MARTIAL ARTS |
+--------------+
Martial Arts is the skill that calculates how much damage you do and it also
increases your Attack Rating. This is the most important skill of all, so
always max this skill.


+-------+
| BRAWL |
+-------+
Our main special attack, with 14 seconds recharge, high damage and chance for
stun, this is a very important special attack. 


+--------------------+
| EVADE CLOSE COMBAT |
+--------------------+
This is a highly important skill to increase, since it gives you a better
chance of evading melee attacks. 


+--------------+
| DODGE RANGED |
+--------------+
Again a very important skill, this gives you a better chance of evading ranged
attacks, which means nearly all attacks with Guns and Ranged Weaponry.


+-----------------+
| DUCK EXPLOSIVES |
+-----------------+
The least important of the three Evade skills, this is used to dodge Grenade
and Shotgun based attacks.


+-----------+
| TREATMENT |
+-----------+
Very important. Used for using high treatment kits and putting in Implants,
this one is important to keep as high as possible.

+---------------+
| PHYSICAL INIT |
+---------------+
Increasing Physical Init has two good effects, it lets you hit faster, and
it also lets you adjust your Agg Def Bar so that you can gain more defense 
while attacking just as fast.


*******************************************************************************
*** 3.2: Secondary Skills [32SK]                                            ***
*******************************************************************************

These are important skills, for example used for casting our nanos. Without
nanos, you won't stand much chance.

+--------------------------+
| BIOLOGICAL METAMORPHOSES |
+--------------------------+
Shortname is Bio Met, and is used for the following types of nanos:
Healing, AC Buffs, Fears, Short Time Damage Boosts and Damage Type Buffs


+----------------------------+
|PSYCHOLOGICAL MODIFICATIONS |
+----------------------------+
Shortname is Psy Mod, and is used for the following types of nanos:
Evades, Martial Arts Skill, Crit, Init and Brawl Buffs


+---------------------+
| SENSORY IMPROVEMENT |
+---------------------+
Shortname is Sen(sor) Imp, and is used for the following types of nanos:
Healing, Evades, Martial Arts Skill, Crit, Init, Brawl, 
Short Time Damage Boosts and Damage Type Buffs


+--------------+
| TIME & SPACE |
+--------------+
Shortname is TS, and is used for the following types of nanos:
Crit Buffs

It is also very important because it is required for using Nano Rechargers.


+-----------+
| FIRST AID |
+-----------+
The Extra Heal, both in Healing and Nano Form is very useful. However, even 
more important than healing yourself, is being able to support others with both
Heal and Nano Stims, especially doctors and enforcers. They will really 
appreciate this.


+--------+
| DIMACH |
+--------+
This is the "Killer" Special which can do a insane amount of damage. It does
have 30 minutes recharge at lower level, so use it wisely. After 1000 Dimach
Skill, the recharge will start to sink while your skill goes up.


+-------------+
| NANO RESIST |
+-------------+
Used for resisting hostile Nano programs.

*******************************************************************************
*** 3.3: Third Skills [33SK]                                                ***
*******************************************************************************

These are skills that you don't have to worry about unless they get too low, or
until you need to increase them. Computer Literacy is the exception since it
is required when you want to equip more NCU. 

+-------------------+
| COMPUTER LITERACY |
+-------------------+
Used for equipping higher NCU and Belt and getting better prices in shops.


+-------+
| PARRY |
+-------+
Parry has several functions. First of all, it SHOULD be a defensive function, 
but as of today, 16 May 2005 it is not working. 
Secondly, it is used for two very good and popular MA Specials called
"Blessed With Thunder" and "Flower of Life".
Thirdly, it is used to equip some equipment, and to use the Parry Sticks.


+---------+
| RIPOSTE |
+---------+
Riposte has two primary functions. 
First of all, it SHOULD be a defensive function, but as of today, 16 May 2005
it is not working. 
Secondly, it is used for a very important MA Special, "Upon a Wave of Summer".


+-----+
| BOW |
+-----+
Bows are primary used by PvP players who wants to extend their range and to be
able to use Aimed Shot, but you can also use it to increase your damage by 
hotswapping Bow and Fist.


+--------------+
| 1 HAND BLUNT |
+--------------+
The 1 Hand Blunt skill is only used for equipping some weapons Martial Artists
can use. Unless you are building your character for that, leave it alone.


+----------+
| PIERCING |
+----------+
The Piercing skill is only used for equipping some weapons that Martial Artists
can use. They aren't all that good with Shadowlands and Alien Invasion, so it's
recommended to leave it alone for the time being.


+-----------+
| RUN SPEED |
+-----------+
Very nice, especially in Shadowlands. This increases the speed when you run, 
making it very important if you are traveling alot.


+-----------+
| NANO INIT |
+-----------+
Not as important as it may seem, since the MA Nanos have a very short cast
time, so not much Nano Init is needed to Instant Cast them.


+----------------+
| MAP NAVIGATION |
+----------------+
Upgrade this to 130 Points to get all the useful Map Upgrades


+-------------+
| VEHICLE AIR |
+-------------+
Find a Low Yalmaha, and you should be able to keep this under 100 Points


*******************************************************************************
*** 4: IMPLANTS [4IMP]                                                      ***
*******************************************************************************

When creating implants, you should think about this first. Depending on what 3
clusters you use, you will end up with different Ability requirement. 
If you follow the first setup, you can customize your imps, but you gotta watch
the Abilities. If you use the second, it only uses Strength/Agility/Stamina.
In the places where you can choose different Clusters, I`ll add them to the
right parts. 

1: All Jobe Clusters have a Title Level 4 Requirement, and can not be built
into Implants under QL100. In those cases where I only list up Jobe Clusters,
go for blank until you can put in Jobe.

2: Multi Melee is only needed if you are using Dual Parry Sticks or Claws

3: There are a few without Bold. Those consist of several good options, which
is entirely up to you and your playing.

4: Implants with Weapon skills are only recommended if you actually use those
weapons.

5: If you plan to use normal implants to cast FFoK and UVC early, follow the
Bold Nanoskills. 

*******************************************************************************
*** 4.1: Generic Martial Artist Setup [41IM]                                ***
*******************************************************************************

This is a Generic Overview of the normal choices you make when making MA
implants. Think about Abilities when following this setup. This setup most 
likely won't work well if you are planning to twink by using a few abilities
only, but it's more directed at the normal setup.

*** 4.2: Agility/Stamina/Strength Based Setup [42IM]                        ***
*******************************************************************************

If you are trying to twink, it's best for a Martial Artist to use implants
that use Agility, Stamina and Strength as Base Abilities, because not only
should they be naturally high, but they are also easy to increase. Here's a
setup you can try, the Recommended Clusters SHOULD make sure all ends up
either as Agility, Stamina or Strength.

*******************************************************************************
*** 4.3: Infantry or Support Symbiants? [43IM]                              ***
*******************************************************************************

This is a suggested Symbiant Setup. If you are unsure about what Symbiants to
use, you can always take a peak at this setup. 

Note 1: There are no Symbiants adding Martial Arts to Left Hand, so use a 
Normal Implant with a Martial Arts cluster instead.

Note 2: For Left Wrist, you should really try for the Fist of the Dominator.
Neither Support or Infantry Left Wrist is half as good, so feel free to choose
one with the mods that suit you best there if you can't get the Fist of the
Dominator.

Note 3: You`ll notice the lack of Agility. This is because, unfortunately, the
Infantry Leg and Waist Symbiants lack it. They got everything else you need 
though, so my personal advice is to use the Infantry Symbiants for daily use
and Swap to Support when equipping Agility Armor or Equipment.

Martial Artists primary uses four Nanoskills, Bio Met, Psy Mod, Sensor Imp and
TS(Time & Space). You can play your MA perfectly fine with only these four 
nanoskills, although the two last Nanoskills Mat Crea and Mat Meta also have
some decent nanos.

Here's a list of all our nanos and what they do.

Note: 
When you cast one of these buffs, it will change your damage type. I've listed
what type of damage type you will gain when you cast it, and the extra damage
you get from the buff. Also, these are ONLY castable on either yourself, other
MA's or Agents in False Profession Martial Artist.

Example: "Chemical & 9 Damage Add" means that it changes your damage type on
fists from Melee to Chemical, and it adds 9 to all damage you do.

*** 7: Weapon Information [7WEA]                                            ***
*******************************************************************************

First of all. MA's usually don't equip a visible weapon. Their weapons are the
Fists. In order to increase your damage, you increase your Martial Arts Skill, 
which will directly increase the damage you do. The more skill, the more damage
you do. However, there are some equippable alternatives, even though the fists
are still the best weapon. Good info about using other weapons can be found at 
Chronitas Martial Artist Compendium located at this link:

http://users.adelphia.net/~chronita/index.htm

When you use fists, your Attack Rating(The one you'll see in your Status
Window, called "Attack") will be 100% based on your Martial Artist Skill plus
any additional Add All Off Equipment you might be wearing.

When you equip a weapon, your Attack Rating will now be based upon it, so if a
weapon's Attack Rating doesn't use Martial Arts at all, you will get a VERY
low Attack Rating, and your chance to hit will go down alot. Most weapons MA's
can use, apart from Bows, have a so-called "Split Attack Rating". If it says 
67% Martial Arts and 33% 1 Hand Blunt, then the Attack Rating is split between
your current skills in both areas, thus it will be lower. So, using a weapon 
that has split requirement will lower your Attack Rating. 

Secondly, most MA weapons have a certain "MA for combined Attack" and a number
behind it. That number is the Martial Arts skill needed to get a second
attackbar, using your fists, but lowered by the new AR. 

If you use 2 weapons and they have the "MA for combined Attack", then you will
only get one extra attackbar, so the max attackbars you can have is 3. In that
case, the two first attacks will base its damage upon the rules of the weapon
equipped, and the third attack will be based upon fists, but lowered by the
new and lower AR. You do get more attacks per minute by using weapons+MA fists,
but the AR is lowered, which again causes your chance to hit to decrease.

To do a very easy example of how your Attack Rating is calculated when wearing
a weapon, lets say a Parry Stick, I`ll show you with an example.

Attack Rating when using a Parry Stick is split between 67% MA skill and
33% 1HB skill. My total AR with 1 Parry Stick equipped was 1155, and
I want to know how to calculate it. 

You have to calculate 67% of the Dominant Skill(In this case, MA Skill) and
33% of the Sub Skill(In this case, 1HB Skill), and then add them together to
get the total current Attack Rating. Let's see:

-Total AR with Parry Stick Equipped: 1155
-MA skill: 1342
-1HB skill: 778

1: Calculate how much 67% of 1342 is by: 1342*67/100 and you'll get 899.14
2: Calculate how much 33% of 778 is by: 778*33/100 and you'll get 256.74
3: Add 899.14+256.74 and you`ll get 1155.88

If you do choose to use weapons, there are several choices, here are some of 
them(With links to them in the database):

+-------------+
| Parry Stick |
+-------------+

Link: http://aodb.info/showitem.asp?AOID=152357

Information: Good Damage but a bit slow. They can be dualwielded, and if you
got enough Martial Arts Skill you get an extra Fist Attack. A QL200 Parry Stick
adds 100 points to your Evade Close Combat and Parry, and if you dual wield,
you'll get 200 Points! If you are looking for the ultimate in Close Combat
Defense, they are your solution. Parry sticks can be rolled and found in
missions.

+------------------+
| Hazangerine Claw |
+------------------+

Link: http://aodb.info/showitem.asp?AOID=160287

Information: Another popular choice is the Claws. Faster, but lesser damage
and mods than the Sticks, they are more suited towards quick combat. The good
thing about them, is that you can fight full def and hit quite a lot faster
than with the Parry Sticks. Claws can be rolled, and found on Martial Artist
Mobs. 

+----------------+
| Torturing Tool |
+----------------+

Link: http://aodb.info/showitem.asp?AOID=157899

Information: A weapon to consider against mobs with high AC, like Hecklers.
It may not look like much, but its quite good, with a nice Crit modifier,
excellent speed and a high Max Beneficial Skill. Found on the Mob named
Morgan Le Faye in Camelot. Never drops higher than QL150 AFAIK.

+---------------------------------+
| Service/Support Energy Gauntlet |
+---------------------------------+

Link: http://aodb.info/showitem.aspx?AOID=214249

Information: This is an Unredeemed Weapon. The Energy Gauntlet is a decent
weapon, but suffers from a few things. It does not take advantage of the crit
based playing, it is unfortunately based 67% on Martial Arts and 33% on 1 Hand
Blunt, and the 2/2s Attack and Recharge makes it slower than fists. 

+----------------------------+
| White Ant/Termite Nunchaku |
+----------------------------+

Link: http://aodb.info/showitem.aspx?AOID=214258

Information: This is a Redeemed Weapon. It is identical to the Energy Gauntlet
in every way apart from the look and the Side Requirement.

+-------------------+
| Bronto Vet Lancet |
+-------------------+

Link: http://aodb.info/showitem.aspx?AOID=231114

Information: This is a more shade oriented weapon, but can be used by
Martial Artists. There are little to no reason to use this weapon for a
Martial Artist however, since its fully based on Piercing. 
Scales from QL1 to QL300.

+-----------------------------+
| Thousand Strings of Fatigue |
+-----------------------------+

Link: http://aodb.info/showitem.aspx?AOID=230479

Information: A Shade oriented Weapon, but can be used by Martial Artists. Once
again, there are little to no reason to use this weapon, because of it being
100% based on Piercing. Scales from QL50 to QL300.

+-----------------------------------+
| Howling Bow of Ferocious Appetite |
+-----------------------------------+

Link: http://aodb.info/showitem.asp?AOID=165059

Information: A decent Bow, with a decent damage and speed. 

+-----------------+
| Bang of Thunder |
+-----------------+

Link: http://aodb.info/showitem.asp?AOID=208027

Information: A Decent Bow, but the Minimums damage is way too low. It is also
too slow, so when in full def with a scope, it will really slow you down. 
Shame really, it could have been very nice. It is one of the most powerful bows
MA's can use though. 

+---------------------------------+
| Schuyler Pup/Schuyler Super Pup |
+---------------------------------+

Link: http://aodb.info/showitem.aspx?AOID=208036

Information: A Low level Bow.

*******************************************************************************

MA Perks are quite good. They offer a good variety between both Offense and
Defense, PvM and PvP. However, they are somehow specialized, so that most of 
them are only really useful in a certain area, and not in several. Two Perk
Lines are almost completely directed at PvP, "Unstunnable" and "Spatial
Displacement", while "Disharmony" is, due to the nature of the game mechanics
only great for PvM at the moment. There's also not as much reason to choose
Spatial Displacement if you only PvM, simply because there's not as many mobs
actually using roots and snares so much that you cannot escape it.

The time to reset a perk, is 24 hours. Think carefully over when choosing what
perks you are going to use, because otherwise you might spend quite some time
resetting them before you can use them again.

|                  | of being rooted and snared. And in PvP, that helps out.  |
|                  | My personal opinion is that 10 Points is too much though.|

|                  | can, then you should not bother with this line, because  |

|            | because it has Stamina and Agility as requirements, making it  |
|            | easy to equip. It scales from QL1 to QL200.                    |

|            | The Carbonum Armor can be upgraded into a Omni Version which   |
|            | adds HP, or into a Clan Version which adds Nano Resist. This   |
|            | can be done by using an Omnifier or Clanalizer on it.          |

*** 11: Shadowlands Armor [11SL]                                            ***
*******************************************************************************

This part of the guide contains Armor and Equipment obtainable in Shadowlands.
Unlike Rubi-Ka, there's not as many real Armor Sets usable for MA's as there
is on Rubi-Ka. However, the Armor and Equipment in Shadowlands is far better
though.

+-------------------+
| Ancient Container |
+-------------------+
Link:        http://aodb.info/showitem.aspx?AOID=224110
How to get:  Give 6 Insignias of the opposite side to the NPC that spawns when
             you kill the placeholder in the Adonis Temple. Kill the Boss that
             Spawns. The Boss should drop two, one finished, and one unpacked.
             Make sure you give the finished to someone to hold it for you when
             you unpack the other, since they are unique.
Information: This is a wonderful back armor at level 100, with both great
             Health, AC and other mods. There's both an Omni and Clan version.

+----------------------+
| Aurea`s Heated Cloak |
+----------------------+
Link:        http://aodb.info/showitem.aspx?AOID=223705
How to get:  Kill the Placeholder in the 75% room, give 6 Insignias of Enel to
             the NPC that spawns and kill the Ardent that spawns. He MIGHT drop
             this cloak. The drop rate is incredibly low.
Information: The most appealing with this back armor is the looks, it does 
             look like a real super hero cloak, but a bit short.

+-----------------------------+
| Chosen Martial Artist Armor |
+-----------------------------+
Link:        http://aodb.info/equipconfig.aspx?Preset=Chosen+Martial+Artist
How to get:  Look at the Tier 3 Section in this guide.
Information: A Fantastic Armor Set, one of the best in the game for a Martial
             Artist. Heavy AC, Awesome Health and fantastic Mods. Almost 
             everything you could wish for.

+----------------------------+
| Cosmic Guide of the Pisces |
+----------------------------+
Link:        http://aodb.info/showitem.aspx?AOID=244641
How to get:  Drops from Pisces in Pandemonium
Information: One of the best, apart from the new Alien Invasion Equipment,
             MA Equipment in the game. Awesome AC, HP and MA mods.

+----------------------+
| Cuirass of Obstinacy |
+----------------------+
Link:        http://aodb.info/showitem.aspx?AOID=244717
How to get:  Drops from the Beast
Information: A Fantastic Body Armor. It rivals the Dragon Body, although it is
             less about Damage and more about protection and overall mods.

+------------------+
| Doubleknit Pants |
+------------------+
Link:        http://aodb.info/showitem.aspx?AOID=245372
How to get:  Drops from Crabby Golem in Adonis

             for these pants apart from on a Alt.

+------------------------------+
| Eva Pourais` Snakeskin Patch |
+------------------------------+
Link:        http://aodb.info/showitem.aspx?AOID=224093
How to get:  Should drop from the same mob that drops the Ancient container.
Information: Apart from the Agility and Sense Boost, this isn't the best 
             Shoulderpad you can use. Nice to boost those skills though.

+-------------------------------+
| Faithful Martial Artist Armor |
+-------------------------------+
Link:        http://aodb.info/equipconfig.aspx?Preset=Faithful+Martial+Artist
How to get:  Look at the Tier 3 Section in this guide.
Information: A Fantastic Armor Set, one of the best in the game for a Martial
             Artist. Heavy AC, Awesome Health and fantastic Mods. Almost 
             everything you could wish for.

+---------------------------------+
| First Tier Martial Artist Armor |
+---------------------------------+
Link:        http://aodb.info/equipconfig.aspx?Preset=First+Tier+Martial+Artist
How to get:  http://forums.anarchy-online.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=184294
Information: The Basic Tier 1 Set is actually one of the best Tier Sets for
             any profession, with nice health and Martial Arts mod. This is a
             really nice low level set.

+-----------------------------------+
| Great Grandfather`s Flesh Sleeves |
+-----------------------------------+
Link:        http://aodb.info/showitem.aspx?AOID=233469
How to get:  I Currently lack the Drop Location of this Item. Contributions
             are welcome!
Information: Despite the gross name, these sleeves are very nice. Max Health,
             Sense and good AC makes them a good choice..if you can find them.

+--------------------+
| Infantry Armor Set |
+--------------------+
Link:        http://aodb.info/equipconfig.aspx?Preset=Infantry
How to get:  Drops from Different named bosses around in Shadowlands
Information: Not exactly the best of armor. The Mods are way too low and the
             Requirements are way too high to be worth.

+-------------------------------+
| Infantry Crepuscule Armor Set |
+-------------------------------+
Link:        http://aodb.info/equipconfig.aspx?Preset=Infantry+Crepuscule
How to get:  Drops from Different named bosses around in Shadowlands
Information: Better mods than the regular Infantry Armor set, but the AC is
             really lousy. It offers about no protection at all, but the Weapon
             Mods help out.

+-----------------------------+
| Joshua Khan`s Catskin Patch |
+-----------------------------+
Link:        http://aodb.info/showitem.aspx?AOID=224092
How to get:  Should drop the from the same mob that drops Ancient Container.
Information: Apart from the Agility and Sense Boost, this isn't the best 
             Shoulderpad you can use. Nice to boost those skills though.

+---------------------+
| Mystical Green Hood |
+---------------------+
Link:        http://aodb.info/showitem.aspx?AOID=246083
How to get:  Drops from Limnos in Inferno.
Information: Great Head Armor! True, no AC or HP, but some seriously sweet 
             Mods.

+----------------------+
| Outsider`s Armor Set |
+----------------------+
Link:        http://aodb.info/equipconfig.aspx?Preset=Outsider%27s
How to get:  Bosses around in Shadowlands
Information: Too weak to be of any use. AC is low, no HP, and only a decent
             Physical Init and Evade amount.

+--------------------------------+
| Second Tier Martial Artist Set |
+--------------------------------+
Link:       http://aodb.info/equipconfig.aspx?Preset=Second+Tier+Martial+Artist
How to get:  Check the Tier 2 Section of this guide.
Information: Disappointing version of the Tier Armor. Mods are not that great
             when you can get it, so you'll most likely just get it to get on
             with Tier 3.

+-----------------------+
| Slippers of Screaming |
+-----------------------+
Link:        http://aodb.info/showitem.aspx?AOID=245890
How to get:  Drops from Creepy Spider in Inferno
Information: The AC is rock solid, and the mods are awesome. Lacks HP, but in
             this case the evades more than justify it.

+-------------------------------+
| Spirit Shroud of the Infantry |
+-------------------------------+
Link:        http://aodb.info/showitem.aspx?AOID=246887
How to get:  Drops from Notum Scourge in Penumbra, rare.
Information: A rather good back armor, but it can be so hard to find that in
             many cases you won't bother.

+--------------------------------+
| The Sacrificed Bracelet of Kay |
+--------------------------------+
Link:        http://aodb.info/showitem.aspx?AOID=245824
How to get:  Drops from Pyiininnik in Inferno.
Information: With the Arul Saba Bracelets ingame and so easily obtained, this
             doesn't do too much good.

+-------------+
| Trick Boots |
+-------------+
Link:        http://aodb.info/showitem.aspx?AOID=253191
How to get:  Can be found in chests in SL Dungeons.
Information: Unless you can get the Slippers of Screaming, this is actually
             a quite nice pair of boots.

+-----------------+
| Venomous Coolie |
+-----------------+
Link:        http://aodb.info/showitem.aspx?AOID=226450
How to get:  Imp Bosses in Nascense, Elysium and Scheol. It looks like this
             only drops up to QL160.
Information: Nice headarmor, low AC but some curious mods. Not too bad.

+-----------------------------+
| Yuan Chi`s Air-Cooled Cloak |
+-----------------------------+
Link:        http://aodb.info/showitem.aspx?AOID=223715
How to get:  Omega Yuan Chi in Elysium Unredeemed Temple. Kill the Prophet/
             Ecclesist in the 75% Room, give the NPC that spawns 6 Insignias
             of Shere and kill the mob that spawns and cross fingers. Very
             low drop rate.
Information: Most appealing with this cloak is the looks, since the mods isn't
             all that good and you will most likely have a better back armor
             once(if) you get this.

*******************************************************************************
*** 11.1: Tier 2 [11T2]                                                     ***
*******************************************************************************

Tier 2 can seem rather complicated right away, but its really not that bad. 

Here`s what you need for one Tier 2 Piece. These parts drop in two different
places, The Adonis Archaic Dungeons and in the Penumbra Archaic Dungeons.

Will of the Unshakable   X 3 Drops from Normal & Boss in Adonis & Pen Dungeon
Advent of the Impetuous  X 3 Drops from Normal & Boss in Adonis & Pen Dungeon
Embryo of Yomi'Arallu    X 1 Drops from Boss in Adonis, and Normal & Boss in 
                             The Penunmbra Archaic Dungeons
Canister of Liquid Notum X 1 Must be at least QL80 - Drops from Most stuff in
                             Shadowlands

Step by Step instruction how to create the finished glyph:

1: Give 3 Will + 1 Embryo to IPS Martial Artist in the Professional Hall in
   Jobe, get Red Glyph of Aban.
2: Give 3 Advents to IPS Martial Artist, get Orange Moon Glyph of Roch
3: Use Canister of Liquid Notum on Red Glyph of Aban. 
4: Use Orange Moon Glyph of Roch on Red Glyph of Aban to make a glyph.
5: Use the Glyph you just created on Tier 1 Armor Piece.

To upgrade Helmet and Backarmor, first use a Joker`s Glyph on the Jobe Part,
and then apply the standard Tier 2 Procedure. Joker`s Glyph is found on
Eradicus, The Boss of the Dungeons spread around in Adonis.

*******************************************************************************
*** 11.2: Tier 3 [11T3]                                                     ***
*******************************************************************************

Chosen/Faithful is infact easier to get than Tier 2. Get a Team going in
Pandemonium, and you should be able to get a glyph in no time. 

Blue Glyph of Aban                          X 1 Drops from normal mobs in
                                                Pandemonium
Insignia of the Chosen(Omni)/Faithful(Clan) X 1 Drops of Redeemed/Unredeemed 
                                                Mobs in Inferno, Reusable
Finely Refined Notum                        X 1 Drops from Dryad bosses in 
                                                Elysium, Adonis and Penumbra

Step by Step instruction how to create the finished glyph:

1: Combine Blue Glyph of Aban with Finely Refined Notum, this Creates a
   Blue Glyph of Aban - Revived.
2: Combine Blue Glyph of Aban - Revived with Insignia of Chosen/Faithful.
   This Creates a Glyph of Judgement.
3: Combine Glyph of Judgement With your Tier 2 Piece, and Voila. This Last
   Step requires 990 Comp Lit.

To upgrade the Shoulderpads into Tier 3, you have to get a
Glyph of the Arcana, drops of Corrupted Mobs in Pandemonium. 
Its also Reusable, so just ask a friend to borrow one. First use Joker`s Glyph
on Shoulderpads, then use Glyph of Arcana, and then apply standard Tier 3
Procedure. Helmet and Backarmor is made by using Jokers Glyph to turn into
Tier 2, and is then turned into Tier 3 by using Standard Procedure.

*** 12: Title level Checkpoints [12TL]                                      ***
*******************************************************************************

I`ll try to make this as short, but as effective as possible. Its meant, 
as a guideline, and a checklist for how you CAN play. It's a little hard to
write down a guide of what perks to increase, so I can only recommend you to
save as much Perks as possible til you get a grip on how things work and how
good the MA perks are. Use what you need, reset if necessary.

Important: This is in NO way a Twink guide. I know you can do stuff far earlier
than I suggest(level 200 imps on level 90) and such, but its really nothing I
want to push on those who play MA for the first time.

+---------------------------+
| STEP 1: CHOOSE YOUR BREED |
+---------------------------+
First time you play MA? Choose Opifex or Solitus. Atrox and Nanomages are more
difficult in respective sense(Nanoskills and Evades for Atrox, HP and general
strength/survival for Nanomage), but they are definetly fun.

+-----------------------------------+
| STEP 2: TITLE LEVEL 1(Level 1-14) |
+-----------------------------------+
Description:
This is the low level stage, easy, fast and not very demanding. Take it easy,
get used to how to play a Martial Artist. 

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Checkpoints                                                                 |

| STEP 3: TITLE LEVEL 2(Level 15-49)  |

Implants, Armor, Nanos and so on. Take it easy and you will be fine.

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Checkpoints                                                                 |

|#When you pass level 20, try to get a good team into the Temple of Three     |

| 1: Three of Enlighenment and if you want: Ape Fist of Khalum                |

|                                                                             |
|#Somewhere within Title Level 2, you should focus on getting selfmade        |
| implants. QL75 implants should be decently equippable for most at least     |
| around Level 30. Try to ALWAYS keep your implants higher than your level.   |
|                                                                             |

| 4: TITLE LEVEL 3(Level 50-99) |
+-------------------------------+
Description:
Starts very sweet, lots of IP the first 10-15 levels, but then it starts
getting tough. The levels between 80-99 is by many called the hardest in the
game, because you are sucked dry on IP and motivation is hard to find there.
Stay in there and you should get past it.

most of the end game nanos now. IP is MUCH better now.

+---------------------------------+
| 6: TITLE LEVEL 5(Level 150-189) |
+---------------------------------+
Description:
The First 15 levels or so are awesome. At 175 you can start getting Azure Armor
too. Luckily, Title Level 5 is short, because all the good stuff comes at Title
Level 6 :) I do not suggest ONLY doing hecklers, but doing missions too, to get
tokens and experience from all kinds of gameplay. 

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Checkpoints                                                                 |

+---------------------------------+
| 7: TITLE LEVEL 6(Level 190-200) |
+---------------------------------+
Description:
Yay, once you hit Title Level 6, you can now equip most of the fat stuff in the
game, Armed Forces Tank and Armor/Sentinels Armor, Heavy Notum Tanks,
and so on. Very fun :D This is really the level where you start to see how your
character is. If you haven't grown used to your character by now, you most
likely won't :p

+---------------------------------+
| 8: TITLE LEVEL 6(Level 201-204) |
+---------------------------------+
Description:
Once you hit 201, you'll notice that you suddenly can increase your green 
skills with 25 Points, Blue with 20 and Dark Blue with 15 Points! I sure hope
you have been saving your IP, because unless, things will become tight. Really
Tight. But, if you have been increasing the right skills (You can max all the
Primary and Secondary skills and most Third Skills apart from Weapons) you
should have more than enough IP to spend some now. 

If you don't, you will get alot more from 205.

Secondly, you will now get a perk point for every level! In the beginning you
will quickly get some Shadowlevels if you have decent Faction, but unless you
do, it will take some time.

Thirdly, you won't get XP anymore, just SK. SK is based on Faction, so you have
to kill Mobs of the opposite faction to gain more faction. More Faction means
Faster SK.

|#Get as much faction as possible as soon as possible, otherwise it will take |

+---------------------------------+
| 9: TITLE LEVEL 7(Level 205-220) |
+---------------------------------+
Description:
The End Game levels. From now on, all you can do is improve on your skills 
and build on what you know. You should be well aware of everything now, and 
if there are still things you don't know, I would really recommend signing up
on the official forums to get further help, since it then mostly becomes a 
discussion of straying towards PvP or PvM. The LAST MA Unique Perk is used at
213, from there you can only use your perk points at whatever you want. 

You can now also raid in Pandemonium to get the stuff there, and also try to
get hold of the new Blades of Boltar weapon. There's a lot to do, but at the 
same time, there's no really clear goals anymore. 

Good luck!

*** 13: Frequently Asked Questions [13FA]                                   ***
*******************************************************************************

This is a collection of many common questions being asked about Martial Artists
on the board. If you have any questions you want answered, or feel free to 
send them to me, and I'll also be happy to add them here. Knowledge is power.

Q: Does Parry and/or Riposte work?
A: As it is now, live version 15.9, Parry and Riposte does not work. There
   have been various attempts to fix it, but none has been working very well,
   so until Funcom can find a good way to use these two skills, the only thing
   they are good for are using MA Special Attacks(Upon a Wave of Summer
   requires Riposte and Flower of Life requires Parry) and equipping items. 

Q: Careful in Battle or Disharmony?
A: This is a hard question. There are no concrete answers to it, since its all
   up to what you prefer. However, as a general rule, if your primary focus is
   PvM, you should go with a maxed Disharmony, and if your primary focus is PvP
   you should go with Careful in Battle. The reason for this, is that Careful
   in Battle helps far more in PvP than Disharmony does, since Disharmony add
   another attack which triggers dual reflect shields against you, making it
   harder and more risky going up against Shield Professions which suddenly
   will cause you to harm yourself twice as much as normal when hitting.
   For PvM, Disharmony is better, as it adds a great deal of extra damage and
   it adds a chance for lifedrain when you attack. True, the Add All Def in
   PvM is quite nice, but the general feel is that Disharmony is the better
   choice for PvM.

Q: Why does my damage suck compared to others on low level?
A: Unlike other professions, MA`s cannot Over Equip their weapon. Our skill
   relates directly to the QL of our weapon, so whatever MA skill you have,
   decides the Damage, Crit and Speed. On lower levels, you are stuck using a
   weapon that is based on your current skill, unlike weapon professions which
   can get a wrangle, equip a higher weapon and be "ahead" of their level.
   In the beginning, MA`s will often fall behind because of this, when other
   professions can equip QL150 Weapons at level 60, but you are using the
   fists based on your skill. Don`t worry though, this turns around once you
   pass mid levels and start nearing high levels, when other professions are
   being stuck with their weapons for a long time and your skill continues to
   grow with each level, until you have among the best damage of any profession
   if you play right.

Q: How Can I be more effective?
A: There are several things you can do to increase your damage. Many have
   accused MA`s for being a "Press Q and sleep" profession, but that is as far
   from the truth as it can be. 
   
   -The primary rule is to be active, and know your enemy. Learn what damage
   type is effective against the mob you are fighting. Learn what skills it
   use against you and what you can do to prevent it. 

   -Use Temporary damage Buffs as often as you can. Use MA Special Attacks, 
   Flurry of blows, equipment that adds to damage.

   -Time healing and perks to make sure you live longer, don`t use every single
   special you have when they are not needed, save them for when you need it.
   Its not wise to use Acrobat when you dont have aggro, then activate Flurry,
   get aggro and having to wait while Acrobat recharges while you have aggro. 
   Instead, as long as Aggro is on someone else, let Acrobat be ready, and use 
   Flurry. Once you get aggro, activate Acrobat. 

   -In teams, unless you are intent on getting highest damage of all on the
   team, Save Instant Aggro Specials like Dimach until a weak profession gets
   damage or add, and nobody can calm. That way you can easily pull the add`s
   attention to you instead of the weaker ones. I can`t even count how many
   times I`ve saved lower level players who have managed to get aggro, by using
   a Heal+Dimach+Brawl+Flurry+UaWoS(to slow the mob down so that the weak can
   escape easier). ALWAYS think about your team mates before your own damage!
   Its not a race. Teamwork > Damage Lists.
