Monk gets a new belt, but the Black Belt will be required to attain it

Technically, Black Belt isn't the highest a martial artist can go. There are degrees to it. Like Black Belt 1st degree is the type you have brown belt w/ strike (or red belt). Then there's 2nd degree, 3rd degree etc.

Could be Red Belt since that's really the only color of belt higher than a black belt aside from different degrees of black.

Maybe just get new items, trade it all in with BB and get a white box and extra stats on it?

As far as realistic guesses go for the new belt, I think it could be useful to examine the progression of the old ones.

White: STR+1
Purple: STR+3, Haste+4%
Brown: STR+5, Haste+8%
Black: STR+7, Haste+12%, -5% PDT, +5 Subtle Blow

In terms of stats, I wouldn't be surprised if the new belt had 12%, or 16% haste. 12% if SE thinks increasing the haste even more would be broken, or 16% to coincide with the 4% increases on the preceding belts. On the same note, my money is on 9 STR to keep in line with the 2 added from purple > brown > black (or possibly 10 STR, to represent the 10th degree, since this will likely be the last belt we ever get).

All in all, my money is on something of this nature being the final product:
???? Belt: STR+10, Haste+16%, PDT(Or perhaps even DT)-10%, Subtle Blow+10,

To go with that, there could certainly be something that enhances or augments Martial Arts, h2h skill, or any other number of desirable traits. The rest is really more-so mindless speculation, but I would be legitimately shocked if the #'s for the stats I listed above deviated greatly from the final product.

It's so crazy to think about something greater than Black Belt. Which is also crazy since there was so much similar talk before level 80 about "OMG how can they improve any gear." But really, this time, if it's anything like what Warden predicts, it's HUGE. I am really excited about it.

I'd rather not play the random guessing game on what the stats might be but in martial arts after attaining the black belt there's of course stripes added to it (ie. 2nd degree BB, 3rd degree BB etc.). I dunno about karate or kung fu but in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu the red belt is attained at the 7th degree I believe. And the 10th degree red belt I think is reserved for the founders of the art, not positive on that though.

Quite interesting, near the bottom of the page it has info regarding grading past blackbelt.

1st Dan: student (Sen)
2nd Dan: disciple (Go no Sen)
3rd Dan: accepted disciple
4th Dan: expert (Sen no Sen)
5th Dan: expert (Kokoro)
6th Dan: expert (Kokoro)
7th and 8th Dan: expert (Iko-kokoro)
9th and 10th Dan: master (Iko-kokoro)

I didnt get higher than brown myself, but I have an aunt who's 7th dan (Iko-kokoro) Europe's highest female Jiu jitsu instructor afaik or used to be. How the belts look visually past black belt depends on the martial art and division, but most generally have some form of white/red stripes or club logos/text. Anyone of 1st dan black belt or higher are collectively called "Yūdansha".

Most likely it will be red, or some sort of combination of black/red/white/stripes.

SE is lazy, it'll probably just be one solid color. And Red doesn't match anything a MNK wears. :(

More importantly, what would you even call such a belt...

I'm betting this belt will be called Master/Sensei belt or just "Red belt" which would describe the possible colour its going to be in a literal sense like black/purple/white/brown belts in game but thats not really what they refer to this belt as even if it is red, its usually sensei belt. Besides "Sensei Belt" sounds better than "Red belt".

Oh and I rekon it will remain 12% haste, they will buff other stats or add something else but Im fairly sure that 12% haste will remain same. Guess we will find out eventually.

Seems like the new belt would be:

Red Belt: STR+9, Haste+16%, -10% PDT, +10 Subtle Blow

I was thinking something along the lines of Ichi Dan or something. Since Dan is the ranks beyond simply black belt iirc. Plus it rhymes with Ichi ban which would be amusing.

my sensei for kendo was 4th dan ;o he was like 60 years old and could be the ***out of everyone in the room literally.

Maybe a DAN upgrade system where you must complete a test for each DAN and each completion adds a single stat point to the belt until you finish it with stats similar to what Wardeniii posted.
