Need help with brewmaster tank

5 posts in this topic

Hi! I am running through antorus right now, and I'm trying to push heroic with my guild now. We just downed the hounds, and we won't be raiding again until next weekend. I was wondering if I can get some help with learning what I'm doing wrong with my monk, I'm a brewmaster tank, and I seem to be taking almost twice the damage of the other tank in the raid, the prot pally. What am I doing wrong? what can I fix? 

Here's the link - https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/HZ8tYNGLM2T4bcfr/#fight=12&type=summary

 

Thanks very much!

So, it looks like you're doing pretty good with brews/stash juggle. Your legendary choices are pretty questionable though (Chest/shoulders is what I prefer - or chest/wrist for suitability). Your trinkets are pretty garbo as well - Agility, Agility, Agility - if it doesn't have Agility on it it's not worth using for monks (for survivablity and dps).

 

Looking at logs you don't seem to purge stagger correctly - I do it as a feeling but usually 75% cap or so, or if I 'feel' the stagger. Also your build is a bit wonky - Also believe it's 14.4 for max haste. 

Chi Torpedo (extra movement quick helps)

Black Ox Brew - Once you're good at maintaining up time correctly, purging off incoming damage (or purging off a large hit) is what makes monks broken. Black Ox Brew allows for this.

Rushing Jade Wind > special delivery: Fits better with the rotation, more dps then special delivery, and ironskin brew  has a max length of 25 seconds, so constantly spamming it is very bad. 

Blackout Combo - High Tolerance: Getting rocked, swap to High tolerance, it helps quite a lot. 

Now on paper you take 'more damage' then this guy, mostly because you're not tracking/purifying access stagger correctly. I had 24 expels to your 38. You are 'smoother' then him, as he spikes like a fucking mad man. Your flat damage taken though is nearly double then me for all aspects - So build, get a higher ilvl, and get better trinkets (I'm just using artus trinkets these days - eye and tanking one from Argus, sometimes swapping to the leg if I need a shield). 

But the main reason for the extra dmg is capping stagger at key times - cap stagger you're taking unmitigated dmg.

Moved this over to the Monk forum, since it's a Monk-specific topic. Missed it since it was in PvE, but adding to above:

  • For such a constant fight as Felhounds, your cast amounts are pretty low. You're filling with Tiger Palm far too often. You're missing out:
    • ~10-15 Keg casts
    • ~20-30 Blackout Strike casts
    • ~5-6 Breath of Fire casts
    • ~2 Exploding Keg casts
  • Above problem is likely caused by you being far too cautious with your energy usage, especially in the first quarter of the fight. You spend a full 2 minutes with an average Energy of ~75. 

Probably a bit late, but good luck with improving!

      Hi all,
      We're a newly formed (Alliance) Raiding Guild/Community and we're in need of you!
      With newly formed I mean really newly formed, we have created this Guild this week!
      We started this guild with a team of Raiders who all wanted to do more than our previous guild was able to offer.
      We are currently 12 ppl who want to have a nice time progression on Heroic and Mythic raiding.
      The aim is to raid 2 or 3 days a week.
      (Below is the info for the guild, if you're not willing to raid standard days and/or join a guild, you're more then welcome to join our community! Do note that once the guild is up to speed, the Guild members will always have priority over Community members for a spot in the raid team.)
      <Have a Beautiful Time> Is recruiting Community raiders and Guild members for their brand-new Raiding Guild and/or Community. 
      Current setup (which we're looking to expand): 2/3/7
      Current kills (Uldir): 8/8 Normal, 5/8 Heroic, 0/8 Mythic.
      Our raid days: Wednesday and (2nd (+maybe 3rd) day to be decided)
      Raid gear requirements: ilvl 355+
      Guild server: Thunderhorn/Wildhammer
      RL age minimum: 18+ (Sorry but we do not want to have to mind our words on Discord)
      Next to raiding we are always gear oriented, which shows in the fact that we run higher Mythic+ dungeons together on the off raid days.
      Next to the fact that we have some PvP teams going.
      Having the ability to join discord is obligated, this is a hard obligation and can not be skipped.
      You're not obligated to talk, but you need to be able to listen during the raids to our raidleader(s)
      We are very serious about raiding and higher Mythic+ dungeons, but on the off time, we are not a serious bunch of ppl.
      If you like serious gameplay and around it some nice social times on discord with your guildies, this is the place to be for you! 
      (I have to warn you though, as we're all some kind of crazy ^^)
      We are hoping to welcome you in our team soon!

      Battletag in case you're interested and want to know more add GM: medamenG#21942
      Or add our recruitment officer: sabetsu#2412

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
      CURRENT PROGRESSION: 8/8N, 5/8H
       
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING (340+ ilvl)
      Healer DPS ABOUT US
      Currently looking for a skilled and laid back Healer & DPS for Heroic and eventually Mythic Uldir.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BfA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      Make sure to add me on Battle.net and fill out our app to join us. We look forward to speaking with you!
      Start the app here!

      Hi everyone,

      We are a guild that transferred from Alexstrasza to join the progression raiding scene as that server is very low population now. We are currently 8/8N and 4/8H uldir, and looking to move into heroics soon and mythic just after. 

      We do more than just raid, we love to do keys, transmog runs, and even some PvP. We have a large range of players from several walks of life and have a unique and fun atmosphere, we are friendly and love helping people. 

      We are looking for a few more members for our Sunday/Monday 5-8pm PST, and our tue/third 5-8pm PST. If anyone is interested in raid leading that will work too.

      We are primarily east coast based but have a plethora of players that are on at all times of day.

      Main needs for our raid team:
      ranged dps
      Healers
      Exceptional players

      Of course all players as welcome as we do other guild activities such as world PVP, keys, xmog and other social activities.

      So come join this very active guild and we hope to hear from you.

      If you would like more information please add my btag at Kaatra#5865.

      I look forward to hearing from all of you.
