Easy Mode vs. Builds and Talents

4 posts in this topic

Just a quick note, on the WW Monk "Easy Mode" page, the level 15 talent rec is "Eye of the Tiger", while the Builds & Talents page recommends the other two talents. I've also seen that on a couple of other class builds, can't remember which ones right off the top of my head though.

So what gives?

For Eye of the TigerEye of the Tiger, the talent is recommended because it is arguably the easiest one to use while also being strong enough. If you personally prefer Chi BurstChi Burst or Chi WaveChi Wave, use them instead.

This is most likely the case with the other talents as well.

That's interesting, because in the Builds & Talents page it lists not one but two specific Legendary items, as well as a specific tier 7 talent, as being the time when Eye of the Tiger is recommended. It seems like that's definitely not a case of all three being pretty much tied, it's pretty clear on that page that EotT is not recommended unless you can meet those other criteria. This is something that would obviously be impossible for a level 15 WW monk, and seems to be quite a discrepancy between the Easy Mode page and the Builds & Talents page recommendations.

Easy mode is not supposed to be the optimised build for damage and healing output, but rather for ease of use. Using Eye of the TigerEye of the Tiger without the synergy does not net as much value as the other two talents do when used properly, but because it is easy to use and not outright bad, the talent fits the Easy Mode build fine. If you are looking for talents that scale with your player skill, use the recommendations in the Builds and Talents section instead.
