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!

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting range DPS & Tank. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 7/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated. In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.  If you cannot get ahold of me in game, I work nights, please shoot me an email, I check it at work often and I can get ahold of other officers via text/discord if it's urgent! violentnacho@gmail.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo
