Deny. Too many smelly ex-shamans anyways.


Only the sexiest of shaman with good hygiene and impeccable fashion sense went monk.

Just clearing that up.


I do miss my face tentacles, though.

So why should I play a monk. I have thought about leveling one, but can not get motivated to try it. MOTIVATE ME.


Had you heard that at lvl 20, you get a quest which takes you to the Peak of Serenity in Pandaria to do "monk training"? Easy fight against an NPC which helps train players to use their monk abilities. On completing the quest, you are awarded the Enlightenment buf, which increases the xp you get from killing things & turning in quests by ***50%*** for one hour.

Oh, and a staff.

After that point, you can return to the Peak of Serenity every day and do a daily to get an hour of the buff again.

Every 10 levels, you get a new special quest to go back (in addition to the daily) to get an extra hour of the buff from completing the quest. And another item of gear.

When you hit lvl 85, the Enlightenment buff you get drops to 20%. Some people saved up allllll of their every-10-level Enlightenment quests and used them all in the last levels of content to help them get through the hard-to-level levels.

... that won't motivate you to play a monk, but it *will* help you make the decision to go ahead and do it, if you should find that the class sounds amazing! And it is. Amazing. Plus - we're not shamans.

So apparently you don't need a fishing pole anymore. If you don't have one equipped, a stick with string pops up.

Well, the tradeoff is no +fishing buff. You can't add lures to your weapons, and better fishing poles have innate buffs.

Oh lord, now when I aggro a mob when I'm fishing I don't have to cry myself to sleep.

The lack of Brewmaster glyphs that are available right now is soberingly dreadful.

So I know I'm only level 61, but I wanted some feedback on my usual rotation as a Windwalker. Mostly so I know I'm learning correct habits. At this level it generally doesn't change between bosses or trash. I'm also kind of bad at remembering to use my Tigereye Brew. I also have Chi Brew, not Ascension.

Jab, Jab
Tiger Palm, Tiger Palm, Rising Sun Kick
Jab, Jab (at this point I tend to be low on energy, is this a good time to use Energizing Brew?)
Tiger Palm, Fists of Fury

Most mobs are dead by that point, and trash/bosses just repeat this for the most part (sometimes using Spinning Crane Kick when there are three or more mobs). On single-target like bosses, instead of Fists of Fury I generally refresh Tiger Palm earlier and go into Blackout Kicks. Normally I use Energizing Brew when I get to that point because I can get about five or so Blackout Kicks in its duration.

Generally it's a good idea to FoF before you energizing brew, in case you energy cap. You'll probably do something like this
Jab>RSK>Jab>TPx2>Jab>TP>Jab>BoK or FoF
Then continue keeping RSK and FoF on CD while keeping TP up and using BoK, when you finally can't jab and FoF has like, Im gonna say maybe over 5s on its CD, use energy brew

chi brew is best used when you hit that point where you can't jab again, just drop a couple 2 chi spenders and keep going.

I'm sure this will change with things like burst phases in raid fights and such, this is just what I do to not lose my sanity with these 20 second boss fights.

kk people, I'm going INSANE here trying to get to 90. 5mans aren't providing xp much faster than me questing as a Mistweaver (hint - that's SLOWWWWWwwwwwwwww).

Situation: I am *terrible* learner. Like, it takes me a LONG TIME to get the hang of *playing* a spec. I can booklearn all I want, but becoming anything resembling proficient is a long and torturous process for me best started at lvl 10 on a toon.

so... if I grab a Windwalker spec (I literally know nothing about WW beyond what I just read in the post above this) and some vendor gear, am I just going to end up dead while questing? MW may be slow, but nothing - not even multitudes of enemies beating on me - can kill me. I may take a year and a day to kill *them* ... but I emerge victorious.

TL;DR are lvl 87 - 90 quest mobs able to be facerolled by a WW who doesn't know anything about how to play?

WW is faceroll no matter who you are.

Important things for WW questing:

Punch things with RSK.

Blackout Kick things to heal.

Expel harm things to heal.

If you're about to get dooked on, touch of karma, then stun when that runs out. It's all really easy.

Excellent. Exactly what I needed to hear :)

edit: I will still find new ways of sucking harder than any other Windwalker in existence. Hopefully, it'll still be faster questing anyway ;)

I like to have the Tiger Palm buff up before I do anything else because it allows more damage, especially before using Fists of Fury or Spinning Crane Kick. I'll keep this in mind though, thanks.

Edit: Thank you based Zen Flight.

After using Zen Flight for the last few days, I say this with confidence;

It is easily one of the best glyph spells in existence and totally makes up for our somewhat lackluster (on paper) Majors for me.

Makes fishing a breeze too, and oddly even more calming. Wishing my claw didn't pop out when I fished though.

RSK before tiger palm :)

Fists of fury should only be used if you are 1000000% confident you will get the entire channel off
