Dual Wield vs. Two Hand Monk Tanking

3 posts in this topic

I am wondering if there are preferences between dual wield and two handed weapon tanking. Does one way provide better mitigation than the other, or is it all up to personal preference? If dual wield is good for tanking, is there a specific weapon that's better than another (i.e. fist weapons over swords)?

Thanks for your time :)

I don't have anything concrete, but it is to my understanding that dual-wield is better because it can proc elusive brew faster then 2H.

Of course, I'm pretty sure that you should just grab the best of what you have or can get, because other then that elusive brew fact its not really that much of a difference

      Hello everyone!
      <Shadow> is a well-established, mythic raiding team on Argent Dawn EU, consisting of mature players that stands between hardcore raiding and having busy RL schedules. We achieve this by raising the bar on player standards, personal responsibility and accountability, resulting in us progressing through content in only two nights a week of raiding.
      In essence, we like to have it all; careers, studies, families, raiding progression and above all - Fun in our mutual hobby.
      During WoD the raiding team has finished HFC Heroic and started progression through Mythic - Clearing up to Mythic Xhul before the designated break, resulting in 10/13 Mythic bosses cleared in total. (WoWProgress)
      With Legion coming and our mythic team going strong, we are looking to jump directly into progression when the new raid tiers open - And it’s always more fun with more people!
       
      We raid on the below days and times (all times are server time):
      - Thursday: 20:00 - 23:00
      - Sunday: 19:30 - 22:30
       
      What we can offer you:
      - Organised, consistent, fun and successful raids.
      - Community feel and active website.
      - Capable and positive raid leader.
      - Organised, mature and well managed guild in the essence of fair play.
       
      What we are looking for:
      - Mature players who are passionate about raiding.
      - Team players.
      - Players who have willingness and a desire to always improve.
      - Experienced players to jump straight into Mythic.

      What we are currently recruiting:

      - Mistweaver Monk
      - Resto Shaman
      - Holy Paladin

      How to join up:
      You can apply via our website following the "Join Shadow" navigation link. Alternatively you can send in-game mail to Arcere to arrange a chat.
       
      Thanks for reading!

      Hi,
      after the pre-Legion patch I realized that my chi bar is no longer under my character's unit frame, but above the current enemy (see attachment). It's not the worst thing ever, but requires some zoom scrolling when fighting large enemies.
      This is caused by ElvUI or ElvUI Shadow & Light and I've tried to find how to change the location of chi bar, but so far I've just failed. The other addons I'm using are Skada, DBM, MoveAnything, Weak Auras 2, OverAchiever, and Omen.
      So, if anyone knows how to relocate the bar back under my unit frames, I'd be extremely happy. It's probably just one easy toggle option, but I'm way too blind to find it.
