I can see where you are coming from that monks are "fine in isolation."
I actually agree with that point. I only made this thread because they are instituting a change for WW that basically models EXACTLY what I think would need to change for TR for it to be a competitive skill in our current meta.
I also agree that TR was never meant to be a primary damage dealing skill which is why I didn't even both addressing the knockback's extreme anti-synergy with the damage portion.
I think the skill has a lot of potential (obviously as I currently use it) and I think it could be accessible to WAY more monks if the cost was less harsh on people stacking extremely simple attack speed buffs (duel wield fists alone make it nearly impossible to use for non-super geared monks).
All in all, seems like you understand where I am coming from. Which is good because if any monk has a reason to be "okay" with TR how it is now, it's probably you. :P
P.S. Still dying to see your gear ... we were theorycrafting what stats you must have to do what you do in the "run like the wind monk" video and I want to know how close we are! :D
