BM monk weapon question

Recommended Posts

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.

      <Fun is for Casuals> is a serious but casual horde guild on US-Hyjal. We are serious about raiding without the intense hours. Even when recruitment status is none, we will accept exceptional applications for all classes. For a full list of what we're looking for check out https://funisforcasuals.enjin.com . 
      Our raid times are Tuesday and Thursday from 5:00PM to 8:00PM server (PST) with raid invitations sent out a few minutes prior to that.

      We're interested in you if you fit the following criteria:
      Raid attendance is essential. We don't want people sitting on the bench but we also want to make sure we're raiding 6 hours per week. We expect you to be available for at least 90% of our raids. Be on time and prepared for raids. This includes flasks and other consumables. Discord is mandatory and a working mic is desired. You're appropriately geared for our current content. Effort and thought have been put into your gear/gem/enchant choices. You wouldn't show up for a job interview looking like a scrub, why would you apply to a guild with improper gems or some insane spec? You're up to date with your class. We expect our raiders to perform to the best of their abilities. You have a computer that's not run with hamster power or requires a hand crank. Some encounters are taxing on a computer's resources so if your toon can't even handle Orgrimmar it's not likely to do well with 20+ whelps that need AOE'ing.
      You may be interested in us because:
      <Fun is for Casuals> uses the personal loot system. There is no loot council, or DKP. We won't eat your babies the first time you stand in something you have no business being in. Repeatedly do it and we'll break out the bibs and BBQ sauce. We provide a limited amount of consumables and flasks on hard mode raid nights. Discord isn't a circus during raids. We're focused on the job at hand and you should be too. We don't want someone to miss a an interrupt because they were distracted by fart jokes. We are not interested in you if you fit the following criteria:
      You roll on BoE items then sell them. Unwilling/unable to spend an entire evening on one boss during progression. While this is rare, it can happen. Drama queens. If you have a problem bring it up to E. This is his job. Don't announce it in guild chat or during a raid. Your issue will have nothing to do with 99% of the guild. You are 17 or younger. We try to keep guild and discord chat PG-13 but occasionally a few four letter words appear out of nowhere. Additionally, we don't want someone's mom interrupting their raiding to get homework or the dishes done. Follow the instructions at https://funisforcasuals.enjin.com/ under the Recruitment tab if you would like to apply.
      If you have any question, feel free to contact E. at DbD#1309
