Monk Haste

19 posts in this topic

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?

      Patch 7.2 added several new Warlock Pet glyphs and we're looking at how to get them!
      Glyph of the Shadow Succubus
      There's a succubus standing near Tehd Shoemaker. She's called Syaith. If you're a scribe and /kiss her, you'll get Technique: Glyph of the Shadow Succubus. The trick is she only appears during the World Quest "Where There is a Whip...". You don't need to have Broken Shore World Quests unlocked to get it according to many reports from redditors that were able to find her.

      Credits go to redditor Sonotmethen
      Here are some tips from redditors!
      Comment from discussion Scribs can get Glyph of the Shadow Succubus for free today!. It seems you don't even need to be max level or have Inscription maxed out to get the pattern. Comment from discussion Scribs can get Glyph of the Shadow Succubus for free today!. Glyph of the Fel Succubus
      Technique: Glyph of the Fel Succubus seems to be a random drop from Cathedral of Eternal Night.
      The current version of the Fel Succubus is bugged (thanks to @Plaguestorm for pointing out), which results in a much weaker version of the regular Succubus pet in terms of damage output. It's advised not to use it until the issues get hotfixed.
      Comment from discussion Protip: Glyph of Shadow Succubus is obtainable right now..
      Glyph of Wrathguard
      Technique: Glyph of Wrathguard can be purchased from the Armies of Legionfall Quartermaster Warmage Kath'leen for 2,500 Nethershards.

      A lot of players look back fondly on the days of Vanilla, but what if we were too look back even further, let's say into the Nintendo Entertainment System era, and see what the game would be like then? Rkade Soup went ahead and made that alternate reality possible, perhaps with the help of Kairoz, and shared this great 8 bit re-imagining.

      High:
      Any role These are our open spots at the moment, however, we are always interested in any player that is highly skilled, knowledgeable with their class and has positive attitude.
      About us:
      Gordian Knot is a 20-man semi-hardcore raiding guild that consists of experienced raiders with some of them having raiding experience as far back as Vanilla.
      We are a friendly group who enjoys World of Warcraft and loves raiding. We have fun and joke around but when bosses need to go down then all is serious! We wish for all our members to enjoy the game as much as we do and we expect raiders to maintain a 70% attendance per month.
      We also enjoy a variety of other activities such as running a lot of Mythic+ dungeons doing alt-runs, achievement runs etc.
      There are a few things we hold in high value but above else we value friendliness and politeness towards guildies and other players and skillfulness when it comes to the more serious parts of the game.
      Currently :
      We raid 3 nights a week, Wednesdays, Sundays and Mondays, from 20:00 till 23:00 server time.
      Although we are a 20-man guild, we usually run an extra group in order to get more people to experience the joys of raiding, help new raiders learn the Knot's way to down bosses and gearing up. Usually, these runs happen on Thursdays or Fridays.
      Saturdays are left for older content runs for fun and drinking!
      Our current guild progress is 10/10 on Nighthold heroic and 2/10 on mythic, and we're focusing on Mythic Progress at the moment!
      If you're interested in joining Gordian Knot, please fill in our application form, located at http://gordian-knot.eu/apply/, alternatively please whisper Athlioss@Draenor or add my battletag Athlios#2283.
      PS. We're always open to group applications or guild merging discussions.
      We are also open and welcome social applications.
