Great guide!
Just a small type here: " Keg Smash Icon Keg Smash has an 8-second cooldown (reduced by Haste), while Blackout Kick Icon Blackout Kick only has a 3-second cooldown (not reduced by Haste). " I think you meant Blackout Strike.

[...] and the Mouseover Keg Smash + Start Attack Macro is not mouseover, but also feels useless as using kegsmash does start autoattack. (would have eddited in previous comment, but I just made my account)

I'm glad you appreciate it!
Yeah that is clearly Blackout Strike, cheers for noticing!

As for the macros I tend to have a blessing of protection cancelaura implemented in that one aswell, but we chose to put it in a separate macro in the guide.

Cheers,

I just started to try my monk in Brewmaster spec and was looking for tips from this great guide, thanks about the effort!

One thing I found confusing is that, for example Blackout Strike is only for two handed melee weapon. So does the Brewmaster only use 2h weapons since 7.0.3.? My monk's gear is so bad, that when the 7.0.3 came it automatically got 2x 1h swords, but I guess he didn't get staff or polearm because it didn't have Brewmaster specced..

Or did I just miss the weapons section in your guide...?

Hello guidemaker,

I think you should edit the guide again as now that Blackoutstrike is effected by haste it should change the rotation a little bit.

This is going to be changed for the Legion guide!

1 handed weapons is no longer a choice for Brewmaster monks.
We havn't mentioned this in the guide, it's going to be updated for the Legion guide!

It seems there is a mistake in the guide. Blackout Strike's cooldown is indeed affected by haste.

The gift of the ox information is extremely outdated. It is not a chance to proc. It procs once you take your (expected) max HP amount of damage after reductions but before stagger. This is a very common misconception about GotO and it doesn't help that a very popular guide site spreads it further.

I am having a really hard time getting behind "Special Delivery". Feels like it never goes off and to trade off something as reliable as "Rushing Jade Wind" seems a bit much. anyone else?

I have it go off often enough. Rushing Jade Wind is very good for AoE and Dungeons, and you should take it in those situations. However, Special Delivery is better in raids, because the singe target damage is much better (if I understood the guide correctly).

 

Really though, it's hilarious when you drink a brew, the keg goes flying up, you turn around from the mob and walk away, and the Special Delivery finishes him off.

special delivery is consistently top of the chart for source of damage on my brewmaster, and it requires no global cd (unless you count brews). If your drinking as they generate it should be popping non-stop.

Hello!

I was wondering, I've seen several sources claim that you need 30% haste but none of them explain why you want 30. Why am I not stacking it as high as I can? What is special about the 30% breakpoint?

Just the point of KS+Brew CDR & Energy Regen that results in the best rotational smoothing.

What makes Fortification a better first pick than Brew-Stache?  I was looking on WoWHead's guide and it kind of seems like Brew-Stache would be better first since Fortifying Brew is used so little compared to how much Brew-Stache will be up and active. It seems way better early game. Thoughts? Because I'm close to picking my friend dragon and I want to know the direction to take :C

Generally speaking, like healing, your sustained throughput is less important than planning cooldowns to survive through the most lethal cruxes of an encounter. This guide is mostly targeted at raiders and overall Fortification is probably the best and safest choice for early Mythic progression. As noted in the guide, however, this is only one interpretation of a build and many tanks can and will choose to build differently to complement their respective playstyles or preferences.

This makes total sense, thanks a bunch! I feel better about picking Fortification, I'm in a progressive mythic guild so thank you very  much!

Hey, After you reach haste of 30%. where does haste appear in the stat prio? 
Also am i meant to be aiming for gear with 0 agi but lots of haste/crit/masrty (like trinkets) is it just worse point for point?

Thank you. x

Hi I've been working on this taunt macro this evening and wanted to share it with you all.

#showtooltip Provoke
/use [nomod,@mouseover,harm,nodead][nomod] Provoke
/tar [mod:alt] Black Ox Statue
/use [mod:alt] Provoke
/targetlasttarget [mod:alt]
/click [mod:shift] TotemFrameTotem1 RightButton

 

What it does with no modifier pressed

- Attempts to taunt your mouseover if they are harmful and alive.

- If neither of those are met, it attempts the same on your primary target.

- If that is not tauntable (friendly) then it returns 'Invalid Target', as intended.

What it does with alt modifier

- Assuming the black ox statue is active, it targets the statue and taunts that.

- It then returns to your last target you had (this is instant and so you'll never notice the target changing).

What it does with shift modifier

- Dismisses the statue,

Hey there! I'm not quite versed enough in Brewmaster to give you a 100% sure answer, but I believe Haste over 30% rests under Mastery. 

For trinkets, you will most likely be looking for ones that have secondary stats on them, rather than Agility, unless there is a HUGE on use or proc benefit.

There is plenty of leather gear with Haste.

Where are you seeing no Haste gear? The dungeons drop a huge amount, regardless of difficulty. World Quests too.

      It seems we're getting a whole lot of Alterac Valley soon, as Classic is getting the 1.12 version in one of the latter content releases and we're getting the special 15th Anniversary edition on live servers in Patch 8.2.5 during the event! Today at midnight CEST there's another Play with the Blues event on the 8.2.5 PTR gathering all Valley enthusiasts and all you have to do is hop on to the PTR and use the Group Finder to jump in!

      You can get the high-rez versions of the two original mounts from the event, which you can check out here as well.
      Play with the Blues (source)
      Tomorrow 12:00 AM CEST, please join us on the 8.2.5 PTR for an old school Alterac Valley Play with the Blues.
      Starting promptly at 3:00 p.m. PDT, Blizzard employees will be testing our 15th Anniversary rendition of AV on the PTR, and you can join us for some strife in the Field of Strife.
      Please log into the PTR by that time and then open your Group Finder (default hotkey: i) and switch to the Player vs. Player tab. You’ll see Alterac Valley waiting for you to join.
      Afterward, please return to this thread with your feedback.
      Thank you!

      The news image above is fan art created by Dogslug. You can find more of his work here.
      Blizzard mentioned multiple times that they would add Allied Races whenever they fit the story. The Horde's hottest candidates are currently the Vulpera of Vol'dun, even though their story doesn't make a whole lot of sense right now. Recent rumors suggest that Gilgoblins could be in the final pair of Horde Allied Races too.
      The Vulpera currently have too many unique animations, and they are a community-favorite. Pretty much every Horde player wants them to become playable. They're coming, and it's just a matter of when. We think the first set of Allied Races will be introduced in Patch 8.2.5 with the second one coming in Patch 8.3.5. Based on datamining, the Vulpera should be live on or before September 20th. You can find all their customization options here.

      On the other side of the spectrum, the Alliance will get Mechagnomes led by Prince Erazmin of Mechagon, but it's still not clear what the second race will be.

      Lightforged Forsaken led by Calia Menethil are a possibility based on the Before the Storm novel and Calia also received a new model in the initial Patch 8.2.5 build.
      Next up are Gilgoblins! We encounter them in zones like Vashj'ir and Nazjatar in Patch 8.2. They are a species of aquatic goblins created by Hobart Grapplehammer. Gilgoblins are very similar to traditional Goblins. They have various tattoos and fins on their arms to help them swim.

      Gilgoblins are currently not included in the game files as playable races as opposed to Mechagnomes and the Vulpera. They only exist as creatures.

      The female model has more customization options compared to the male model. Would you like to see them become playable in the future?

      We know that Blizzard wants to add more customization options to World of Warcraft, and a recent leak suggests that all Allied Races will become customization options in Patch 9.0 except for the Nightborne and the Vulpera. Let's see what the first set of Allied Races is going to be now that Patch 8.2 should hit Public Test Realms reasonably soon!
      TL;DR
      The first set of Allied Races (Mechagnomes/Vulpera) coming in Patch 8.2.5 on or before September 20th. The final set of Allied Races will include Gilgoblins and Lightforged Forsaken (based on the Before the Storm novel) in Patch 8.3.5. We know that Mechagnomes and the Vulpera are coming, but what about the second set of Allied Races?
