In this article, you are going to find a list of all the Monk changes for World of Warcraft Patch 8.3: Visions of N'Zoth.


Brewmaster Monk

  • Stamina bonus reduced to 30% (was 35%).
  • Stagger Icon Stagger percentage reduced to 90% of Agility (was 105%).
  • High Tolerance Icon High Tolerance now increases effectiveness of Stagger Icon Stagger by 5% (was 8%).
    • Developers' note: Brewmaster's extremely high effective health against Physical damage meant that they are rarely in danger against spike damage that threatens other tanks. This should still be a strength of Brewmaster, but not by such a wide margin.

Bug Fixes

  • Brewmaster's Gift of the Ox Icon Gift of the Ox now spawns the correct amount of orbs for players with high amounts of Stamina.

Mistweaver Monk

  • Revival Icon Revival healing increased by 12%.
  • Renewing Mist Icon Renewing Mist healing increased by 15% and now costs 2.5% of mana (was 2.8%).
  • Vivify Icon Vivify healing increased by 6%.
  • Enveloping Mist Icon Enveloping Mist healing increased by 10%.
  • Rising Mist Icon Rising Mist healing increased by 33%, and now extends Heal-over-time effects by 4 seconds (was 2 seconds).
    • Developers' note: This talent is currently overshadowed on its row, and we want to make sure it is competitive enough to make its unique playstyle a viable option.
  • Life Cocoon Icon Life Cocoon now absorbs for 60% of the Monk's maximum health (was 1100%) of the caster's spellpower.
    • Developers' note: This ability had gotten weaker compared to player health pools since the start of the expansion, and this will help it better maintain its value.

Windwalker Monk

  • Rising Sun Kick Icon Rising Sun Kick damage increased by 25%.
  • Blackout Kick Icon Blackout Kick damage increased by 10%.
    • Developers' note: These changes are intended to help Windwalkers perform better in single-target fights.
