Unfortunately, I learned this the hard way. When Zocc hits an enemy, he casts “mindless attack” on the target while also increasing the target’s mana by 50%, typically accelerating the rate of their mindless attacks.
However monks are able to resist negative status effects. And those two effects, “casts mindless attack” and “increases mana of the target” are distinctly separate—and only one of em is negative. So hitting a monk with Zocc may or may not cast mindless attack, but you will definitely be raising the target’s mana by 50%.
I’m not sure if this is working as intended or not, but for those unaware, that’s the way it’s working.
