Monk Haste

Recommended Posts

I'd like to first apologize if there is already a thread about this. I raid in a guild other than my own. My guild that my toon is in has a pretty decent raid team. They're 9/12 HM I believe. My heals on my monk are great, but I also like looking at what others are doing to try to improve myself.

Earlier today I saw my guild's Mistweaver monk in Shrine of Two Moons and I decided to inspect them to see what they're gemming/reforging at such a high item level (mine is 522, theirs is 538). I saw they were gemming mainly 320 haste in red and yellow slots and 160 haste + 160 Spirit in blue. I searched everywhere online to see if there would be a reason for this and I cannot find one.

I suppose my question would be am I supposed to be gemming that way too at some point? Is there another haste cap I'm not seeing?

Here's my armory link http://us.battle.net.../Kishimo/simple

Thanks in advance.

Well, if you see my armory you will notice that i have a ton of haste gems as well, but that is because I am going for the 12k haste breakpoint.

Looking over your armory, I would suggest a couple things.

  • Too much spirit, I would recommend going down some.. If you raid 10 man, I usually see people go about 9-8k. 25 man, You should be getting rid of it as much as you can. Even more so when you get the legendary meta gem.
  • You are well over the first haste breakpoint. You can probably reach the 2nd one with no problem (6141)
What stats do you think you will value more? Int? or Crit? Theres some different ideas floating around and some people prefer to gem more crit than more int.

After deciding those things I can help you more with your stats.

also out of cuiosity, is this the monk you saw in your guild? http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/lightnings-blade/Pandagirlqt/advanced

I was contemplating getting rid of my pure spirit gems since I'm currently okay with mana. I generally prefer crit.

And yes that is the monk in my guild haha.

First off, you have WAY too much mastery gear.  Replace your neck with the Valor neck (spirit/crit) and replace one of your rings with the crit/haste (prefered) or haste/spirit ring.

 

The rest of of your gear, just get rid of any and all mastery that you can.  Even if its an Ilvl upgrade, DON'T TAKE MASTERY GEAR.  Unless you're upgrading from LFR -> Heroic, its just not worth it.  Also get rid of that tier helm.  The Helm off of Megaera is much better because the 4pc is not really that worth it + more crit.

 

next you are about 800 haste below the next haste breakpoint so you can do some slight gem modifications.

if you want more spirit let me know.

Yea, don't gem haste.  Hast is not as important because of the RPPM change.  Just go for the lowest breakpoint your gear allows

 

if you are about 100 points or more above the haste cap (and cannot reforge) then you might as well just go for the next one

I always advocate stacking crit. And haste is not that important right now. Just get what ever breakpoint your gear allows.

These questions have bothering be for a long while. =/

 

I thought Crit is mainly for improving DPS when fist weave, but i guess not now....so what could crit give, just crit healing? and why is it better than intell?

      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?

      Put away your bathing suit, pull out your parka, and enter a winter wonderland as the Arathi Basin you know and love gets a fresh coat of ice and snow. You'll be racing your way between the farm, stables, mine, lumberyard, and blacksmith through piles of snow and over a - mostly - frozen lake. One more thing: the weather forecast calls for a bit of fog of war. We hope you're prepared for the weather.

      Today's hotfixes come with a lot of nerfs to Queen Azshara. Vitality Conduit now correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields, and more.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Queen Azshara When either Aethenel or Cyranus is slain on Normal, Heroic, or Mythic difficulty, there is now a 3-second delay before the other one gains the Torment buff. Azshara's Indomitable is now summoned 10 seconds later than previously observed on Mythic difficulty. Tidemistresses have 5% less health on Mythic difficulty. Fixed an issue where casting either Moonfire or Regrowth twice in a row while affected by Repeat Performance was not triggering the silence. Fixed a bug on Mythic difficulty where the damage effect from Deferred Sentence could trigger the healing reduction from Obey or Suffer right as the decrees transitioned between each other. Siege of Boralus  Corrected an issue where players’ pets were unable to attack the tentacles during the Viq’Goth encounter. Items
      Heart of Azeroth Vitality Conduit (Essence) correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields on them. Learning new ranks of Conflict and Strife (Essence) should now properly grant achievements such as Power Up.
