The only foreseeable buff to monks will be to increase spirit regen and healing which....omfg did Blizzard just nerf both of those the other day? Why fix something just to re-implement something similar but probably more awkward to use unless they never plan to address it in the first place.
I didn't buy this game to kite or roll a range. Nor did I subscribe to wow all those years ago just to get shafted as melee and end up rolling mage just to feel like I can blow !@#$ up with abandon.
The take home message? Blizzard hates melee, I hate blizzard, I have quit this game and I hope my liberal use of paragraphs make it easier for you guys to read.
PS. I really enjoyed tanking as bear until swipe nerf. I enjoyed prot pally tanking until the %^-*ing golden dangle appeared under my HP bar and I really loved when I could punch things as monk.
