I see that Tree of Enlightenment requires 201 Dimach to use, so it looks like I'll be implanting Dimach after all. This leads to a new question. Auno says ToE locks the Dimach skill while Bird of Prey is listed as locking Martial Arts. I've already discovered that "BoP" is mutually exclusive with Attack of the Snake, which also locks Martial Arts.

So does this mean that I'll be able to use ToE and BoP (or Ape Fist) in the same fight?

Yes, you will be able to use both in the same fight.

ToE is nice because it locks dimach, which frees up your normal "damage" attack to be used at any time you normally would use it, and it doesn't lock dimach for nearly as long as the dimach skill itself does.

semi related note, an early Tree = near imortal mode for MAs.. or at least from my time playing my MA. Note that was for PvM tho, As I don't do PvP.

That'll be fun then. It looks like I'll be able to equip it soon too. Now I just need to get 2 more pages to drop

Earlier you get ToE, the better. It's quite the special to have for the entire life of an MA, though it probably becomes much less helpful and just supplementary around TL4

I finally got all the pages over the weekend and it's quite nice. If I use it to finish a fight I can immediately start the next fight at full health, which reduces my down time from some to almost none. Missions go much faster now.

The third mission I ran after getting ToE dropped the first Grid Armor disc, so that made me like it even more.
