I am eager to know what everyone thinks about WW dps after the first raiding week and therefore evaluate my rotation and performance, so despite that I am not very good at English, I carry out this poll as a conversation starter.  

In the first week of Legion I was very excited about WW because in ALL the dungeons  I did way more damage than every other classes, sometimes 30% or 40% more. This high expectation was met with slightly frustration and confusion when it came to raid content last week. Last night my guild killed heroic Xavius and here is the log: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/rJRXdwHDKPc6ga8y#fight=26&type=damage-done. I ranked 7(vincenkw) but that was mainly because I happened to outlive most of others and got a chance to do a lot of damage during the crazed 15 secs. During earlier attempts my DPS ranked around #10 - #14 and almost got replaced, and my ilvl(853) was higher than a good part of the raids. The other night I did heroic Ursoc with a 12 men pug team, I ranked #3 eventually but also almost got replaced earlier because I ranked around #7-#10 during attempts that last for about 3 to 4 minutes, my ilvl was 851 and the #1 and #2 was hunter and DH, their ilvl were around 848. About the artifact level, I've asked several guild members and we are all around 20.

All in all, I feel like WW is not so competent as I have thought it would be, what do you guys think?Also, it seems to me WW usually don't do well comparatively in the first 3 or 4 minutes which often result in being replaced while the team is making attempts, what is your experience regarding this issue?

Out of interest, were you playing before or after the changes to classes? Just before I comment on the rest :p

Tbh, I am not very sure. I am aware there was a change, but since there is no patch notes about it(or I havdn't found it), I don't know when it happened. The Xavis kill I mentioned was after the change, this I can confirm.

I am interested in hearing what other raiding monks will share about their Emerald Nightmare experiences.

While my monk is not yet raid-ready, I've dungeoned and raided with multiple WW monks, and I've seen them perform in top 3 for multi-target fights at in normal raids and mythic dungeons.

I'm also interested in hearing about the class changes that were stealthed into game this September

Atm im only pugging (EN norm & heroic), and doing M+9 as progression, and in my experience WW monks are quite high.

In raids i tend to top the dmg charts with at least 2-4% more dmg than the others, probably due to Karma-legendary.
Dungeons the only proper competition is the DH, and thats with a lot of aoe (thrash), but seeing DHs lack a bit in ST, i tend to top it in overall.

Now im very interested about what monk changes.. Havent even seen anything in the "hidden hotfixes"!

The only change I've noticed for sure is that SotW seems to do about half damage (maybe less?) to secondary targets, like how FoF used to be.

Also been noticing the same thing with DPS charts, before and after the hotfixes. I tend to be far and away the top overall DPS in dungeons, and still manage to edge out most better geared players on pure single-target boss fights. So far I've only seen a couple rogues and 1 demo lock do more DPS than me in pure single-target fights, and they were only a couple % higher. But then in PUG raids, even in LFR, I'm usually somewhere around #4-7 on the charts, even in AOE-heavy fights. Don't really know why. Could just be doing some mechanics slightly wrong, I dunno. I know I've popped karma too early or too late a few times.

      I came to Icy Veins to setup my Elemental Shaman only to find your Talent setup does not match what is offered in the game presently.  Below I have listed what I see in my current in-game talent setup and bolded those items that do not match your setup at all.
      Current in-game Talents listed:                                                   Your Listing:                      
      15 Exposed Elements Echo of the Elements Elemental Blast               Earthen Rage 30 Aftershock Master of Elements Totem Mastery       Call the Thunder 45 Spirit Wolf Earth Shield Static Charge         60 High Voltage Storm Elemental Liquid Magma Totem       Master of the Elements 75 Nature's Guardian Ancestral Guidance Wind Rush Totem         90 Earthen Rage Primal Elementalist Icefury       Surge of Power 100 Unlimited Power Stormkeeper Ascendance         I thought someone here should know about these differences because it appears there has been no update recently to your setup.   I know that I personally would appreciate an update so that I can adjust my in-game setup to work better.

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which semi-recently transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some shit.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are in need of any competent DPS, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.
