About Our Author

This guide has been written by Quotey, who has been tanking as a Brewmaster Monk since they first rolled onto the scene. He currently raids in Echoes and is reachable on the friendly Monk Discord.

1. Gems for Brewmaster Monks

You should use Kraken's Eye of Agility Icon Kraken's Eye of Agility in one socket, and Deadly Amberblaze Icon Deadly Amberblaze (or the cheaper Deadly Solstone Icon Deadly Solstone) or Versatile Royal Quartz Icon Versatile Royal Quartz (or the cheaper Versatile Kyanite Icon Versatile Kyanite) in all other sockets.

2. Enchants for Brewmaster Monks

Slot Enchantment
Rings
Weapon

Since Brewmaster Monk stats are so close together, you are free to use other stat enchants if you prefer them. We do not recommend the Armor weapon enchant at the moment.

3. Consumables for Brewmaster Monks

Flask of the Currents Icon Flask of the Currents should be used in all situations, since Agility increases the amount of damage you Stagger.

Battle Potion of Agility Icon Battle Potion of Agility should be used in most situations. Against Physical damage, Steelskin Potion Icon Steelskin Potion is alright, but provides no damage increase. On pure single target, Potion of Bursting Blood Icon Potion of Bursting Blood will be best for damage, but the amount of damage it deals is very inconsistent, with the top damage being about 4x that of the bottom.

You should eat Bountiful Captain's Feast Icon Bountiful Captain's Feast for the buff to your Agility. If you want to buff your Agility instead of your Stamina, you should switch to Windwalker before eating (and then back to Brewmaster afterwards).

In Battle for Azeroth you will use Coastal Healing Potion Icon Coastal Healing Potion as your healing potion. Healing potions no longer share a cooldown with Healthstone Icon Healthstones, so you can use both if you have access to a Warlock.

If you can afford it, you should use Battle-Scarred Augment Rune Icon Battle-Scarred Augment Runes to increase your primary stat. Since there is a finite amount of these runes available, you should make sure to use them wisely and to stock up on them for when you need them.
