    I think as for money I'd suggest not working on a MoN for a Corsair, and getting a Horntail Pendant instead.

    The stats should be rather similar between a clean 5 att MoN and a HTP, but the most important thing a HTP offers sairs is an added ~50-60 avoid. If you pop Heartstoppers you can really see the difference all that avoid can make, which translates into more time on the ship and less time re-positioning, which is a solid DPM boost.

    Personally I think MoN's are completely overrated.

    I'd still suggest MoN considering that the only boss that avoid actually matters on is horntail. The vast majority of bosses do not actually force sair to reposition (namely all of the NT bosses that give solid exp).

    That being said I have not yet to test out the actual avoid on htp in horntail, so I could be wrong.

    In terms of pure dpm, a chaos'd MoN is significantly stronger than a normal htp. But, I guess maybe if you chaos the htp twice it could win in the end.

    Just want to add that I tested this out in game, and an average HTP +22 all stat is superior to +5 att , +6 str +6 dex MoN (assuming decent gears, which smoked has) when you are using heartstoppers.

    So, if you add in the avoid, that makes HTP alot better than an unchaos'd MON clean at least. I think the MoN would need to be about 8 attack or better to be stronger than HTP, but I think alyosha is correct overall.

    Yeah, I think a lot of people are finding that MoNs are a bit overrated as far as pendants are concerned. They might have been over-nerfed when it came to their addition but nothing can really be done about that now unless they can be retroactively changed, and even then I wouldn't really know how to do that. They're only really good to scroll with some exceptional luck, otherwise you're just tossing hundreds of millions on something that isn't a huge upgrade, and could overall be spent on gear upgrades that can still be found if you're keeping an eye on the market. Ideally I think MoNs are only best for DKs as they have no need of dex, NLs because of their avoid and higher multipliers from attack, and maybe other warriors who forgo dex weapons.

    It is pretty difficult to measure the difference though without using AP Resets on your secondary stats, and once you do optimize it you can't really switch between the two. It's also hard to say exactly how much avoid actually helps DPM, it's pretty heavily based on RNG. For Bowmasters every miss is a fairly large boost due to Hurricane having a small charge up time and Hurricane stopping once you're Knocked Back. SelquinSelquin probably has some better numbers on that. Overall I think it's really difficult to say where one is better than the other, but it must be incredibly painful to have to drop an 8 attack MoN to try again.
