Mistweaver Monk spell usage and comparisons

Note: This is not just for me. This thread if for anyone wanting to evaluate their playstyle and compare to other monks, or just to ask what they might be doing wrong.

I want make this thread to try to get a consensus of how people play. Mainly I want this to have logs of people playing mistweaver (be it their own or someone elses) and compare the spell usage to see who is doing what, why, and better.

Providing links to armorys will also be beneficial to show gear differences.

Here is an example, I will be comparing myself to Madmonk.

http://raidbots.com/...1000425#healing

Total Chi gain throughout the fight

Me: 232

MadMonk: 223

But since 27 of my Chi came from Jab (meaning I did some fistweaving then most of that chi i generated went into BoK and TP. I tiger plamed 21 times, + 5 BoK which equals 31 chi used on fistweaving out of my 232.

So effectively I only gained 201 chi for uplift healing purposes.

The biggest difference between our healing is renewing mists, uplift and chi gains. Mad monk casted 3 more ReM's then me so we are both playing similarly

Thunder Focus Tea Usage:

Me: 11

MadMonk: 8

So here, I am using this spell more often, but he might be making better use of it then me seeing as his ReM healing is so much higher.

Comparing our stats

Now first thing I notice is he has more intellect and more haste then me, but less crit. Spirit is roughly the same.

My question to him is, Why do you use so much haste? Are you reaching a 3rd ReM breakpoint?

His high haste could be a small part to his High ReM healing coupled with the 2k more intellect. Another big difference just could be play styles. He may just play his character better then I do.

Last note: Gear Difference

I do indeed get an extra tick from ReM which is why I do more healing with it. I really wanted to get to the new cap as it will work wonders with our set bonuses (currently on 3 pieces).

One of the reasons why I'm doing more healing is that I have slightly better gear, especially my 528 weapon adds a lot of spellpower.

Nice comparisons, I'm looking forward for more.

P.S. I don't really remember why my TFT usage is low, I may have lined it up with abilities, but on most fights I try to use it on cooldown.

What is the breakpoint after 6141. I may try it. But I'm doing well right w with 7k crit rating..

And I did pick up the same weapon you have (thunderforged too) last night. Along with pants from Primordius and Ring from Durumu.

I have found different reports and most claim it is 9145 but when I had that much i didn't get the extra tick, there was one report that said 9146 and after trying that it worked.

Unfortunately I cannot compare this weeks logs effectively because my raid did WAY better over all on the fight then normal, so the damage for the entire fight was very minimal. Our healers made a competition out of it to see who got the most healing and there was 4 of us neck and neck to each other just barley getting healing numbers out of it.

So technically, according to logs, I did worst this week then last week, but that does not take into account raid awareness, which in this case was very high, therefore less healing was needed. Which is one problem I overlook many times when comparing logs.

There are the logs for it nonetheless if someone wanted to look at it.

looking closely my ReM had a 54% over heal, while Uplift had a 60% over heal. We were squeezing those numbers pretty tight. I even used my chi burst so badly with a 70% over heal..

Then take into account we killed it 30 seconds quicker makes it even worse for comparisons. At least my raid did a superb job at the fight, which I am glad for.

      The Bloodborn is currently a Heroic raiding guild that is trying to break into Mythic progression raiding. We have a talented core and are very enthusiastic about raiding, but unfortunately we lack the numbers to attempt Mythic. We are a mostly adult guild ages 25-35 and would prefer like-aged people.
       
      A little history: The Bloodborn is a guild that has been around since The Burning Crusade. We started on the Lethon server and transferred to Illidan at the start of Warlords in an effort to find more players on a high-pop server.
       
      We have earned AoTC during every raid tier this expansion (and before!). We are a close-knit guild who help boost keys weekly, PvP, achievement hunt, and much more.
       
      We are willing to help people gear up for their tier. Voice is optional, but we use Discord and will require you at a minimum to listen.
       
      Guild Needs:
      DPS (Death Knight, Shadow Priest) are in high demand.
      Accepting applications from all specs/classes.
       
      Raiding Times:
      Monday - Tuesday - Wednesday 9:30pm-12:30am(pst) 11:30pm-2:30am(server-time)

      First off, I absolutely adore this class and especially the brewmaster theme, but I'm just not making good use of it. I'm also not very good or knowledgable at it, so please excuse my stupidity in this ramble :P
      With other tanks, I always feel like I'm in control. I have abilities that easily gather all enemies to me, but it's so different with the monk. If we're not counting the artifact weapon's special ability (since you spend at least 98 levels without it), I basically have a single proper AoE attack, being the Keg Smash. Compared to other tanks' abilites like Thunder Clap, Blood Boil, etc., I feel like Keg Smash is absolutely terrible. It has a much smaller radius, so I always have to run around and try to herd groups into tight bunches before I can effect all of them. If I'm completely surrounded by enemies within melee range, I feel like I'm lucky if I hit even a third of them with the splash, and so often I have to run around and tag drifters with melee attacks. I'm really jealous of the other classes' spells that are centered on the caster or placeable.
      Am I doing something wrong, or is this a common problem? I know I have the Provoke ability as well, but being a single target spell with an 8 second cooldown, it doesn't really help my problem much. I really want to make my monk work, but I feel completely at a loss in dungeons and raids sometimes, and I always fall back to my prot paladin just because I feel like I'm doing an awful job with my monk.
      Pleeease show me how I'm being an idiot and how the brewmaster is actually a competent tank!

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      Hi! I am running through antorus right now, and I'm trying to push heroic with my guild now. We just downed the hounds, and we won't be raiding again until next weekend. I was wondering if I can get some help with learning what I'm doing wrong with my monk, I'm a brewmaster tank, and I seem to be taking almost twice the damage of the other tank in the raid, the prot pally. What am I doing wrong? what can I fix? 
      Here's the link - https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/HZ8tYNGLM2T4bcfr/#fight=12&type=summary
       
      Thanks very much!

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo
