Hi, i was searching for it some time and haven't really found any good topic about this..
Ok, let's see, as long i play bm monk(few weeks now), during heroic 5 mans, mougshan vaults and now heart of fear i can say brewmaster is 'almost' well designed.
First of all let's talk about psychical dmg, a lot of it... Large packs of trash mobs and mostly bosses, which hits us for enormous dmg(even with stagger)
Example: Will of the Emperor, this fight for brewmaster monks is like 'from devastating combo to devastating combo, lets hope we will survive'. it's completly rng what will happen, i have build hit/exp/haste and still got almost 60% stagger, a lot of haste and almost for every 'psychical dmg phase' on WotE 12-15 stacks of elusive brew.
Summing: 44% dodge + 29% parry + 58% stagger (all got uptime around 70-80%) and still i got 1shooted by boss with his melee hits. Ok i got dampen harm and fortifying brew but when i use it what will happen on next phase? its hard to predict, 1 fight u wont get any hits, on another everything will hit u even with such awesome avoidance... Its kinda hurt people, that u die even if u try so hard, cause rng is a bitch. Other tank classes dont have such problem.
My point is, dk,pally,warrior got plate armor and some got shield too, druid got guardian buff 330% armor... and what monk have? nothing, stagger wont help when u get hit 3-4x in 2sec for 150k...
Ok i cried a little, now lets look at strong monk side:
- statue(shield ally for good amount of dmg)
-pretty good self-healing
-stagger, which works very good in sustain dmg(its worse when boss burst u hardcore because armor>stagger)
-great movement, aoe/single target dps/
-good survi vs sustain dmg, good cooldowns
if i missed something, write it, this topic may look like a lot of crying but that is my opinion now, i didnt write about other bosses in raids because all of them got pretty well-rounded dmg which brewmaster can avoid/purify and be fine
