BM monk weapon question

Hey, I'm new to having a monk/tanking (she's not even 90 yet), but I have a question about weapons. Does it make a difference I eventually equip 2H or DW? On my DK I felt like it definitely made a difference in my play style, so I want to be prepared for that if it does.

Thanks!

You get an extra dancing steel enchant with 1H.

 

The difference is so minimal it does not make a huge difference.

 

Just go for the highest ilvl witht the best stats.

Hi,

 

as Brewmonksta already suggested, always go with the highest ilvl weapon you can get, but in case of same ilvl choices:

 

2H weapons: stable/reliable EB generation and higher Stamina,
DW: +1 Dancing steel proc and slightly higher DPS output.

 

If you want to be tanky, I'd say go with a 2H weapon (I play DW atm tho. The reasons: I'm trying to get the highest DPS I can, and I haven't seen a 2H agi weapon drop this tier so far.)

In this instance i have found over the too many monks i raid on biggrin.png , the EB stacks are more than enough with 1H and provided you are playing properly the extra dps(mainly for 10man) will be a bigger help then faster EB stacks.

 

If you are maintaining the "best" rotation i fee the 1h and extra dps will help you more in progression than the 2H. However this will still follow the rule that it only becomes a decision between the 2 types if the weapons are of same ilvl and stats.

 

Note: 25 man vs 10 man has a very different style. DPS is more important in 10 man and the mastery can be more important in 25man(especially heroic).

This. Althought I prefer the 2H playstyle, I'm aiming to put out the most DPS I can get, since there is like no damage to mitigate in 10-mans and I need to do something with my life while tanking. ;D

 

And in 25-mans you'll have soo much higher Vengeance, that you'll still do shit tons of DPS.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone! Right now my guild does flex, but we're forming a 10man so looks like dps output will be more important there.

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      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.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      When I started playing again after several years off, I chose the wrong weapon/artifact chain for my Ret Paladin.  I choose Truthguard instead of Ashbringer.  So I am at 105 with Truthguard now and I was told by Bliz several levels ago that I could swap weapons at some point although I was not told how or when. I don't use Truthguard in play now just a normal weapon and seem to do ok. What must I do?
      From Blizzard -  "I understand you are contacting us about your starting artifact weapon! I know it would be frustrating wanting to use Retribution and the Ashbringer and getting the Truth Guard by mistake. I made this same mistake on my Shaman. I was anxious to get the Doom Hammer and didn’t realize I was required to use the Enhancement spec. I do have some information to share with you.
      The bad news is, once an artifact is selected, there’s no changing that. Luckily, you’re not stuck with this forever. You’ll need to go through some of the story line with the Truth Guard, but once you hit level 102, you’ll be presented with the option to pick up the other 2 artifact weapons. From there you will be able to use any one you’d like. ^_^"

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, PUBG, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
