Hello fellow monks.

 

I have a question regarding stats for WW monk. i have been stacking mastery since the new patch, as i read that was the new go to stat. I have now a few weeks later taken a look again and people are saying its our worst stat. So i tried to reforge the mastery to haste and crit and gave a go on dummy. I cant nearly burst as much dmg and overall of a 6 min dummy session with both stats i do 10k less with haste than mastery. Am i playing monk all wrong or is it just random (crits / tigereye brew procs) 

 

and is mastery really our worst stat?

You don't need a lot of Haste, just enough for max efficiency with Chi spending for max TE generation.. that should be around 6k or even less depending on your comfort level. After that Crit is considered to be the "best" stat, but only up to the 57% crit cap for dual wielders. After that point you can switch to Mastery. Whichever way you go with it, I think you could benefit from a more unified gemming strategy. You seem to be favoring Agility, as too does the writer of the Icy-Veins guide, but I counted 7 gem slots where you're running a gem without Agility on it, which is at least 560 Agility being left on the table.

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!
