I'm one of the first monks to hit level 60 and got to inferno. How do I know? Red Bull and me solo'ing it all the way to and halfway thru inferno because playing with others just slowed me down. Probably one of the first 20 monks to get there and one of the firsts to ''show'' other ppl the "BoP spirit spam thru everything and absorb absorb, not take damage.''
"AND YES I WAS IN A TOP 20 WORLD GUILD IN WOW SO I KNOW NOT TO STAND IN POISON/FIRE AND DARGONHALION-LIKE MOVING PURPLE LASER GUMMY BEAR BEAMS AND KNOW TO HIT-AND-RUN WHILE TURNING ON SERENITY TO BUILD SOME SPIRIT IN THAT LITTLE AMOUNT OF TIME WHILE IT'S UP SO I DONT GET ONE-SHOT THEN RUN LIKE A NOOB-DEATHKNIGHT WHILE I RECAST MY PET AND SEND IT SO THEY GET DISTRACTED WHILE I RUN WAITING FOR ANOTHER SERENITY COOLDOWN SO I CAN ATTACK LIKE A ROGUE WITH CD KILLING HEROIC ANUB'S LAST .1% AND GETTING SERVER 1ST W/OUT DYING.'' Sarcasm with truth against rares/elites hitting inferno Act II.
Please do not reply if you're not even in at least inferno ACT 2 and have solo'd Mahgda on a melee. Gtfo if you're thinking on criticizing my monk-kiting-dont-get-hit-by-@#$%-skill. Solo mahda on a monk inferno 2 then you get to talk. (For the monks wondering what skills I had turned on, yes it's doable but the fight literally took me 2 hrs of dying with 10 or so attempts lasting at least a couple of mins and thank god there's no enrage like Butcher. Not gonna go into details but just sayin, recasting pet is a good distraction for the adds. Instead of Mantra Healing with Boonshield since we monks know it's not viable anymore on inferno, use spirit so your spirit is going up while you're running around kiting and waiting for serenity cd for the adds and Mahda as you keep recasting pet after it dies a million times. Don't go in melee range with magda unless youre going to be behind her with your follower or pet distracting her as they gets one-shotted giving you a 1 second hit-n-run window [must have quick reflex or you're dead when she faces you and breaths] then going in again melee range with serenity and running off. The adds are easier to hit-n-run even with no serenity since their weapons get stuck on the floor. This is not the only way for a monk to solo Mahgda inferno, but this is what I did. It was hard. It took a long time. I'm sure this is not the best way to do it. But this is what I did. Tip, dont even waste your time. Get a friend wizard and rollface her inferno. I did her again after I solo'd her with a friend and @#$%, ez with range.)
Before you talk about my gear, solo'ing Butcher on inferno is a good gear check as well especially for a melee. (For the monks wondering how I beat the floor timer, 600+ weps, dex gems/gear, go full damage with healing mantra and shield and using serenity as o-sh1t button. His deadliest attacks are all avoidable. If he pulls you while he's standing on fire, dont even use that as an excuse. That's also avoidable. Never run ''away'' from him while you're not in melee range, you'll get caught by chain. Run around him clockwise or whatever with him being the center of the clock. Just never ''away'' from him and gg. Also, running toward him as he's charging the wall will give you less dps loss right away you get out of his way. For the wow-dudes, think of the white king-kong boss in Heroic-Toc charge. The less time you're running around, the more dps you do. Took me less than 20 short tries. Lesser of a headache than Mahgda. She felt like long end-game boss that took forever for 1 solid attempt only to die again. Mahgda was lesser attempts, but long ones with my method). I also have mf-gear and I've been farming, obviously. I know my @#$%. So don't even talk about my gear. Seriously, don't even reply.
Anyway, what I wanted to say was, I'm rerolling to wizard because wizards are overpowered and monks suck at inferno. Gets one/two-shot by every elite's normal attack and can't even get near them to generate spirit via attack. Trying the kite with healing mantra with spirit and keep recasting pet while kiting is also dumb and is too low damage. Even so, just a monk ''kiting'' is dumb. Monk is a melee. Not kiter, nuff said.
What made me decide to reroll? This wizard friend I have that I used to play with on WoW that got kicked off my guild since he kept dying to stupid @#$% got to Prime Evil Inferno while I'm still half-way Act 2 Inferno and me reaching Inferno at least 9 hours before he did. This guy got hit by Lich King's defile all the time on heroic causing everyone to get off the platform, so I swear he's mediocre. Ya. F dat broskis.
Why I made this post? Just wanted to add to the MONKS NEED CHANGES posts.
Til then, REROLL.
::edit. I also know this game is not WoW. Again, don't even reply.::
