Spinning crane kick NOT answer to everything

Monk
I am at the level right now where most of the players in my PUGs are monks who just got Spinning Crane Kick, and all they do is spam it non-stop.

They completely forget their AOE stuns, their insta-kill, and handy things like paralysis. They don't use their self-heals or their ranged attacks. Just spinspinspinspinspin without a break, like Dervishes on L.S.D.

Never mind that AOEs often create more problems than they solve. Just spinspinspinspinspin.

Even when we are out of combat. Spinning just for fun.

Stop spinning long enough to do a little intelligent fighting, why not? Huh? We are at battle, not at a ding-dong DANCE.
SCK is the answer to life.
New flying mount for Monks - Spinning Crane Kick

We spin and kick so fast we fly like helicopters.
I just went from #7 on sha of anger 40m healing charts to #1 (all in one life) from sck on melee...

I was only hitting 13 targets...god forbid if ranged were stacking on a real fight...
Paralysis is hardly handy while spamming dungeons with mostly aoe, but it is a good interupt in a pinch.

SCK is my main aoe spell. I fill the 1 second inbetween windows with leg sweep, tiger buff uptime, RSK, and FoF canceling.

You can cast FoF to get the stun, the stun lasts the whole duration regardless if you maintain the channel. I then cancel it and go right back into SCK.
Sorry too busy spinning to read this post
Put up Zen Sphere at the same time and you do even more damage AoE :D

Love watching all the numbers pop up

/spin
LOL @Livedeath!
Honestly, my only problem is with the ones spinning when its only 1 enemy. Do you really need to spin like a top on a boss?

Ah, an ally from the Crew.
*begins to SCK the OP*
Just let them do it. Then later we'll lose them because they can't figure out why their damage is so low. Less stupid monks playing.
For MW monks for about 40 levels or so, it is pretty much everything.
If Spinning Crane Kick is not the answer, you didn't ask the right question.
It goes away fast, as do monks in LFG.

Oh!? That's interesting.
