One of the reasons why I want monks to get stronger in general is that it will silence some of the dumb QQers in this forum.

Of course, it's naive to expect the internet trolls to completely go away. It's impossible.

But then, I'm sure a little less number of trolls would make things much more fun to talk about builds and shi t in this forum like the old days.

Rebranded for creativity, recognition and marketing purposes.


I'm an account planner @ advertising agency, and I approve it. LOL

Cool man.

I personally think that the amount and type of QQ (excluding trolls) has been completely warranted and I think the "cure" is simply being listened to.

I consider myself to be a fairly level-headed guy who tends to fall pretty strongly on the positive / optimistic side of things when it comes down to it and it was only through a series of what appeared to be flatly ignoring the monk community and nerfs from a patch that was supposed to bring buffs that lead to me being negative.

When they say 2.1 will "Fix" monks and then proceed to nerf OWE, nerf EP, nerf TR (still don't get this one) and nerf Numbing Light, it is hard to believe that the next thing around the corner will be any different.

Additionally, we got near-zero response regarding the changes that, by all accounts, were steps backward not forward.

So, is there a lot of negatvity? Yes. Is that really a bad thing when you have a lot to be negative about? Not really.
I know it's less fun to read "QQ" posts but as long as it's authentic then and not trolling then I think it's fine.

For example, it was only through a whole lot of QQ that I was persuaded to change my position from optimism to skepticism and without that change I likely never would have written the 2.1 review thread and it seems reasonable to believe that the 2.1 thread had at least something to do with the changes coming for monks that match surprisingly well to what our community asked for.

tl;dr -- While I normally do not support negativity, sometimes it is the right form of expression to get the job done.

Is there a market for hugs?
No the tears, the beautiful tears, theyre going away nooooooooooo..........

In all seriousness, i agree, it would be nice to start seeing some more positive posts, the sun is starting to dip over the horizon again! Feels like monks have been in a really long arctic winter.

Lets just all hope blizz finally hits balance on the head with this ptr patch.

Also @ druin, blizz needs to give you your happy back!

No offence to anyone, the "QQ" many said to hate in this thread may be what took the attention of Blizz to give us another promise, except this time it sounds truly promising following the content of Blue's response seen in Druin's review thread. I am however, still reserved about the changes given there has only been disappointment so far. Let's just see and test it first - I do have good feeling.

The QQ of "QQ" won't bring us anywhere.

Come on man!

Stop QQing about QQers of QQers.

Because that will generate more QQers of QQers of QQers.

Have a nice day guys.

I am still waiting for my question about what Strafe snapshots Nyan

APS / Elemental Damage / Elite damage / Focus+Restraint (must remain equipped though)

I miss anything Nyan?

Too late. Monks getting buffs. My new DH will stay nooby.

As promised.... (>^^)>

For posterity then, you stack elite + elemental + aps then swap to CC/CD?
Damage is dymanic, so you need that too. Just take a look at my profile for what I swap to after:
