So long as you stay at EM or below in signet/sigil areas, Mnk/Dnc is a complete monster.
Sanction Signet/Sigil now has a hidden effect of significantly increasing your Def and Eva against the monster you are currently engaged (not links or if you are standing un-engaged getting beat on). Combined with /dnc and the power of mnk, you can steamroll EP-EM with signet without any real concerns. Gear up DD and go to town.
However, the moment you hit a T mob, the difference is severe. Eva highly reccomended for anything above EM. If no def/eva boost from signet/sigil, then eva on ~EM mobs can serve you well, but I wouldnt worry about it a lot.
Also it depends on level. Lv30 you get your 1st waltz and its potent. It caries you to 40ish easy on EM and Ts. However 40-50 EP-DCs are better ebcause your waltz heals the same as it did at lv 30. (Not enough for Ts). 50-60 blows. EP reccomended. You have to wait until lv 60 before you get your next waltz meaning you have your gimpy waltz you got at lv 30 trying to heal damage from lv 50-59 mobs. It doesnt work well. Just put up samba and steamroll EPs. 60+ it gets some pickup with a more potent waltz meaning more time DDing and lest time spent dancing like a fruit to live.
I wouldnt reccomend soloing T+ mobs on mnk/dnc for exp. You will get better exp/hour streamrolling EP/DC mobs (and its way safer). Toss in a Whm, PL, or Drg/Mage 60+ with AF helm (/drool Counterstance+infinite healing=neato) and T+ is pretty good though (VTs with Drg or PL).
