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.
