Brewmaster Monk Tank Spell List and Glossary — Dragonflight 10.2.7

Last updated on May 07, 2024 at 11:20 by Sinzhu 27 comments
General Information

On this page, we present you with all spells and procs that you need to understand as a Brewmaster Monk in World of Warcraft — Dragonflight 10.2.7.

1.

Introduction

This page describes the essential spells and passives all Brewmaster Monks have at Level 70, going over the main aspects of the specialization to help understand the remainder of this guide. It can also be helpful as a quick reference.

If you are leveling a Brewmaster, you likely will only have access to some of the abilities and passives listed here. However, our leveling guide can help specify when you will unlock access to everything.

2.

Primary Resource of a Brewmaster Monk

Energy is the main resource available to Brewmasters, resulting in them having a natural global cooldown of 1 second.

Energy is generated over time, with how much you receive depends upon your Haste. Its maximum capacity is 100, and you will start at that amount. Whatever Energy you would have generated while already at 100 will be wasted.

Many abilities available to a Brewmaster do not have an Energy cost. They are only limited by their cooldown timer. Balancing the use of Energy-spending abilities with free abilities form the core of managing Brewmaster spells.

Baseline Brewmaster Abilities

Ability Abbreviation Description/Effect
Brewmaster's Balance Icon Brewmaster's Balance - A passive to assist you in tanking, increasing your total Armor by 25% and your Stamina by 45%.
Blackout Kick Icon Blackout Kick BoK Has no cost, deals some damage, and grants you a stack of Mastery: Elusive Brawler Icon Mastery: Elusive Brawler on a very low cooldown. This ability's functionality changes dramatically based on your chosen talents.
Celestial Fortune Icon Celestial Fortune CF Increases all healing you receive, with the chance to occur being equal to your Critical Strike. In addition, it increases the size of any friendly absorbs on you by 80% of your Critical Strike chance.
Crackling Jade Lightning Icon Crackling Jade Lightning CJL A ranged channeled spell that deals low damage to enemies and has the added effect of occasionally knocking back targets in melee. It is very expensive, costing 20 Energy to cast and 20-per-second beyond that. It should only be used to pull far away enemies.
Expel Harm Icon Expel Harm EH Provides a small amount of baseline healing and also draws all Gift of the Ox Icon Gift of the Ox orbs to you to increase the healing amount. You will then deal 10% of the healing (including overhealing) as damage to a nearby enemy. It costs 15 Energy and has a 5-second cooldown.
Leg Sweep Icon Leg Sweep LS Allows you to stun all targets within 6 yards of yourself for 3 seconds on a 1-minute cooldown.
Mastery: Elusive Brawler Icon Mastery: Elusive Brawler EB The Brewmaster Mastery, causing you to gain stacking dodge chance equal to your Mastery percentage after being hit by an auto-attack or when casting Blackout Kick Icon Blackout Kick until you successfully dodge. This effect can stack to the point of giving you more than 100% dodge chance. It also increases your Attack Power.
Mystic Touch Icon Mystic Touch MT Causes enemies you damage to take 5% more Physical damage from everything. This effect is exclusive to Monks and is desirable in all forms of content.
Provoke Icon Provoke Voke A taunt effect, forcing the target to attack you for 3 seconds with a cooldown of 8 seconds and has a 30-yard range. During that time, your threat generation on that target is also increased.
Resuscitate Icon Resuscitate - Your resurrection spell. It takes 10 seconds to cast — reduced by Haste — and can only be cast outside combat. You should prioritize resurrecting healers during wipes, as they can resurrect all players at once.
Roll Icon Roll - A signature Monk ability, causing you to roll a short distance in the direction you are moving. It has 1 charge with a 20-second cooldown, and can be further modified with certain talents.
Spinning Crane Kick Icon Spinning Crane Kick SCK Your main multi-target filler spell that costs 25 Energy to use. It deals four ticks of damage over 1.5 seconds, reduced by Haste and has no target cap. However, it will deal less damage to each target hit if hitting more than 5 at a time. It also will attract any nearby Gift of the Ox Icon Gift of the Ox spheres to you while channeling and grant 1 second of Shuffle Icon Shuffle each tick so long as it hits a target. You can still dodge enemy attacks while channeling this ability. You can cast most other abilities on your next global cooldown without interrupting the channel, outside of other abilities with cast times. Finally, using this ability twice in a row will add the remaining channel duration to the new cast.
Stagger Icon Stagger - A unique way Brewmaster Monks receive damage. When any damage is taken, it is split into a chunk you take immediately and a staggered portion, which you take over 10 seconds. How much of an enemy's attacks you Stagger will depend on your Agility and their level. In addition, you can only Stagger Magic damage equal to 45% of the amount you would from Physical attacks, which also includes almost all damage-over-time effects. Certain talents and spells can also modify Stagger.
Tiger Palm Icon Tiger Palm TP Your main single-target filler spell. It deals low damage and reduces the cooldown of your "brew" abilities by 1 second. Using Tiger Palm costs 25 Energy. This ability's damage in particular can be dramatically altered with the use of certain talents.
Touch of Death Icon Touch of Death ToD Acts as an execute-style offensive cooldown that carries some defensive value. Every 3 minutes, you may instantly kill any target with less Health than your maximum amount. However, other players will resist the effect without opting for other talents. Casting Touch of Death will also remove some of your Stagger Icon Staggered damage.
Vivify Icon Vivify Viv A small single-target heal. It has a cast time of 1.5 seconds and costs 30 Energy. You should rarely cast this in active combat, and instead only use it during downtime or between fights.
Zen Pilgrimage Icon Zen Pilgrimage - Teleport yourself to the Peak of Serenity in Pandaria. Casting this ability again while there will send you back to where you were, or to the nearest spirit healer.
