A question regarding Brewmaster build

Hello, icy-veins forumers. I have a question thats been bothering me for a while.

 

I'm a part of a 10 man group progressing heroics. I've been going for haste (8000)>crit>mastery, by using Mr. Robot.

 

Not long ago though, Mr. Robot suddenly wanted me to go with more mastery, sacrificing about 10% crit for 7.13% more mastery. I'll link it here:

Here is also my armory;

I dont think I have any problems with taking the damage I do, so I think my build works fine for now.

 

I guess my question is; as we progress onto the heavy hitting bosses (like solotanking bloodrage on Malk, Thok, and Garrosh), would I be looking for a bigger mastery pool or is 14% buffed enough?

Telling us "Mr robot wanted" is the same as telling me that your default settings some how took over.

Mr robot does not just randomly start picking how to do your reforging it's based on the weights you give it.

If he decided to "change" something it's because the weights changed. I refer you here: http://www.icy-veins.com/forums/topic/2430-to-those-people-who-ask-why-does-mr-robot-do-x-and-y/

Now to actually answer your question I would reccommend keeping more emphasis on crit. Mastery is fine to have on your gear but in general crit is all you need.

Now if you're consistently getting hit very hard and it's too much for your healers to manage, you can try adding more mastery in place of crit if it's physical damage. If it's magic damage you're going to need more stamina.

Well, thats the thing though, I didnt change any of the stats. I've been going with the default build for quite some time, and only now I've started to play with the stat weights. The mastery thing started to happen as soon as I got the amplifier trinket, so maybe that causes some confusion with the coding. I dunno, I'm no good with programming or how it works, all I know is that I've used the same weights, and this happened. 

 

As for your answer to my question, thanks. I did suspect the crit build was the best for 10 man. I also stated that I didnt take that much damage, but we'll have to see how it fares.

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      First off, I absolutely adore this class and especially the brewmaster theme, but I'm just not making good use of it. I'm also not very good or knowledgable at it, so please excuse my stupidity in this ramble :P
      With other tanks, I always feel like I'm in control. I have abilities that easily gather all enemies to me, but it's so different with the monk. If we're not counting the artifact weapon's special ability (since you spend at least 98 levels without it), I basically have a single proper AoE attack, being the Keg Smash. Compared to other tanks' abilites like Thunder Clap, Blood Boil, etc., I feel like Keg Smash is absolutely terrible. It has a much smaller radius, so I always have to run around and try to herd groups into tight bunches before I can effect all of them. If I'm completely surrounded by enemies within melee range, I feel like I'm lucky if I hit even a third of them with the splash, and so often I have to run around and tag drifters with melee attacks. I'm really jealous of the other classes' spells that are centered on the caster or placeable.
      Am I doing something wrong, or is this a common problem? I know I have the Provoke ability as well, but being a single target spell with an 8 second cooldown, it doesn't really help my problem much. I really want to make my monk work, but I feel completely at a loss in dungeons and raids sometimes, and I always fall back to my prot paladin just because I feel like I'm doing an awful job with my monk.
      Pleeease show me how I'm being an idiot and how the brewmaster is actually a competent tank!

      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?
