I left my guild and quit raiding. Now I feel awesome How are you doing? :D

(I'll read more of the guide later)

Yeah, the Mists of Pandaria lull has hit quite a few people and I'm seeing lots of raids and guilds fall apart lately. :(

I've been doing good myself. Haven't raided in a while, kind of upset I never really delved into DS hardmodes. I was pretty pissed that our hunter got his FIVE piece set before I got even one on my warrior. =/

Bumping for great justice, and so I don't have to search so much next time. My graphics card like this most recent beta push so I can play without having seizures now.

I've kept this updated to the almost latest build. :)

The latest changes were GREAT.

I was just worried about hitting the link until I saw the same thing.

From your blog:

Blackout Kick: Is your main Chi dump. It costs 2 chi and grants the very powerful Shuffle buffle, which I explained is quite powerful at the beginning of this guide. Most importantly, if you already have Shuffle active, it will extend its duration by 6 seconds!


I think: the second "Shuffle" would correctly be "Stagger". I conclude this from the tooltip for Brewmaster training: Blackout Kick.

Perhaps I misunderstand, though.

iirc Stagger is the Monk term for mitigating the damage. You 'stagger' the damage and some of it becomes a dot.

I've set aside most stuff I needed for Mists, I think.

Seriously, the 25th cannot come soon enough.

Hopefully then I settle on a name.

Shuffle just means that you're boosting the amount of damage you're "staggering" later. Purifying Brew resets your "Stagger" so that way you're not taking all that damage as a DoT.

At least I think I've got that correct x_x

Sounds about right.

Yep, Stagger is something that happens to all melee attacks thanks to the Ox stance.

Shuffle is the buff that increases the transfer rate of Stagger.

Every time I remember I have to start a Monk at level 1 I get a little less excited.


Do what I'm doing and RAF that baby.

Whining from Fearonianananan about JC


Who cares? JC still gives decent bonuses and on top of that generates the most cash out of any profession if you take the shuffle into account. I'll never drop JC, just because I have so many recipes that make me tons of gold. Hell, I still sell WOTLK gems and cuts for twinks.

What is the sense of having a CRAFTING profession that has nothing worth CRAFTING?


Gems are crafted.

You're not doing the correct things if what you replied is all you've done.
Here's a protip: The money comes from the green gems.

You should make a separate blog/thread about it instead of derailing the Brewmaster Tanking Guide thread on how to make gold from JC though.

For stam alone and at real high levels of gear you'd want BS/LW instead; LW lets you swap out the crappy 50 dodge enchant to bracers with 195 stamina which is a sizable increase over the Mixology boost you get from Alchemy, which is the same as any other crafting profession (100 stam).


IIRC there still won't be a new Stam Bracer enchant so the new Stam bracers one is still amazing.
