Personally, I will go for a Windwalker Monk. I'll probably also try to tank as a Brewmaster.

I don't really see Jackiechoun, my Monk, doing great at healing Posted Image

Steven's gonna be a healer main spec and tank offspec. DPS looks ridiculous... oh well the whole class is ridiculous Posted Image

I'm curious to know why you think it's ridiculous.

Personally, I'll probably be playing Mistweaver mostly. I'm kind of fed up with melee DPS, and the healing looks quite fun.

Healing first, tanking second. But I'll obviously play whatever the guild wants me to play.

My Monk will be my 7th max level healer (4 priests, shaman, druid and Paladin so far) so will definitely be Mistweaver main spec.

Wait what? 4 Priest healers? Why?

I'm not sure if I can be bothered to level another Alt. I'll probably change my tune once the expansion comes out.

I'll go MS tank and OS heals.

If the guild wants me to play DPS regularly, I'll keep my druid as my main because I hate melee DPS Posted Image

I'm going to try them all! First I'll try out dps, then tank and healing last, because I've had max level healer for 2 weeks now and I'm only used to DPS and tanking

I would go tank due the macanics with brewmaster quite different from rest of the tanks in some ways and you will probably have a diffferent feeling playing a tank with a rouge resource(energy)

I will go with Healing as MS and tanking as OS :) got enough dps already and very few healers so its time with a new healer!

If I bother with a Monk, mostly likely a Mistweaver spec.

I don't mind trying a brewmaster, though, looks pretty interesting.

My monk Minju is going to be a healer..... healing is my thing in WoW, and I adore the way it played in beta. She will probably end up being my 2nd main, after my holy priest.

      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
