BM monk weapon question

9 posts in this topic

Hey, I'm new to having a monk/tanking (she's not even 90 yet), but I have a question about weapons. Does it make a difference I eventually equip 2H or DW? On my DK I felt like it definitely made a difference in my play style, so I want to be prepared for that if it does.

Thanks!

its different but more balanced for a monk. not like a blood dk that should never dual wield.

I think the only difference is that 2H can provide slightly more brew stacks.

You get an extra dancing steel enchant with 1H.

 

The difference is so minimal it does not make a huge difference.

 

Just go for the highest ilvl witht the best stats.

Hi,

 

as Brewmonksta already suggested, always go with the highest ilvl weapon you can get, but in case of same ilvl choices:

 

2H weapons: stable/reliable EB generation and higher Stamina,
DW: +1 Dancing steel proc and slightly higher DPS output.

 

If you want to be tanky, I'd say go with a 2H weapon (I play DW atm tho. The reasons: I'm trying to get the highest DPS I can, and I haven't seen a 2H agi weapon drop this tier so far.)

In this instance i have found over the too many monks i raid on biggrin.png , the EB stacks are more than enough with 1H and provided you are playing properly the extra dps(mainly for 10man) will be a bigger help then faster EB stacks.

 

If you are maintaining the "best" rotation i fee the 1h and extra dps will help you more in progression than the 2H. However this will still follow the rule that it only becomes a decision between the 2 types if the weapons are of same ilvl and stats.

 

Note: 25 man vs 10 man has a very different style. DPS is more important in 10 man and the mastery can be more important in 25man(especially heroic).

This. Althought I prefer the 2H playstyle, I'm aiming to put out the most DPS I can get, since there is like no damage to mitigate in 10-mans and I need to do something with my life while tanking. ;D

 

And in 25-mans you'll have soo much higher Vengeance, that you'll still do shit tons of DPS.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone! Right now my guild does flex, but we're forming a 10man so looks like dps output will be more important there.

      So currently our guild is progressing through all the available content as everyone else is, and on most attempts i come second or third on the healing charts, however i have started falling behind lately and i'm hoping that someone on this site can assist with bringing my heals back up.

      Hello fellow monks,
      i came here for help, i feel like i underperforming on most single target situation. My big problem is, i have such a low dmg from FoF, i dont even know why. I must do something very wrong with my FoF. Can please someone look at this and try to find why iam such a lefthanded ?
      I ready every guides, i still learning with Serenity, but i think its not major problem, why i have 10M dmg lowest on FoF dmg then others.

      This is a link to my armoury: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/emerald-dream/Ullo/simple
      These are the logs of my hc progress (sadly only nyth) where i greatly under performed: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/14698331/latest#metric=hps
      My rotation revolves around fist weaving and using as much thunder focus brews as i can, getting resets on Rising Sun Kick. My main healing spells are the 2 HOTs Enveloping mists and renewing mists, and i use my cooldowns when i see fit.
      As i realised though, i am not really performing well and i would really appreciate someone with a lot more experience than myself to help me. All help is welcome, i just want to get better! 
      Thanks!
