Why does my Brewmaster do 85% damage?

7 Undead Warlock

When I look at the paper-doll for my Brewmaster Monk, my damage appears in red, and it says I am doing 85% damage. I don't have any diseases or curses on.

Is that part of the class design for Brewmaster Monks, or am I doing something wrong?

Brewmasters have a 15% damage penalty as a 'balancing' nerf.

Then Prot Warriors "need" a 50% damage nerf.

Protect warriors weren't out-DPSing the DPS in raids.

And if you're talking about PvP . . . lol.

brewmaster monks were topping DPS, against actual DPS with the same amount of gear.

Nerf was needed bleh

Nerf was needed, but I wish it could have been done elegantly.

The elegant changes will most likely come with WoD. This was simply a quick bandaid fix they implemented after checking out the numbers are seeing overall how BrMs did vs other tanks.

Eagerly awaiting the patch where Blizzard forgets to remove the band aid since it's a hidden buff and easily overlooked.

It's bloody annoying when you see that red text each time you open your character window -.-

WTF... Why can't they get rid of it? How hard can it be... It's been ages now.

It would require something other than a hotfix. Brewmasters are still doing great dps, so don't expect any changes until the expansion hits.

It's not the actual DPS I care about :P

Only the red text... I would play BrM even if they did low damage; I just hate seeing red.

That is a bunch of BS. I thought Ghost Crawler left, why are they using his failed logic?

I didn't even know it was possible to facepalm this hard.

Evidently GC leaving is now retrograded.

Read post dates, is it really that hard?

I don't know why people blame Ghostcrawler. Designing at Blizzard HAS to be a team effort, one person can't possibly design something of this scale on their own.
