Brewmaster + Stone = wipe?

90 Pandaren Monk
So playing around with brewmaster I was loving it until I was up against Coren and stunned. For most tanks this isn't a too big a deal due to armor, however for my brewmaster it was a death sentence resulting in a very fast wipe since so many of our abilities are active mitigation/avoidance the passive damage reduction from armor does not exist. Also with out avoidance to cushion the incoming blows stagger builds up very very fast resulting in an untimely death.

Any counter to this or should I just go mistweaver?

It hurts all the tanks, you know, and Death Knights aren't actually swimming in armor, either.

But yeah. Open your bag, drink the brew, problem solved.

Ugh...I think the real problem is I shouldn't start tanking first thing waking up in the morning. Forgot about drinking the brew, thanks for the reminder.

Edit: The title of this post verified that.

Barrelled I believe isn't related to drinking something. I did many of them and paid lots of attention and I still got it multiple times.

There's one stun that the tank cannot avoid it seems.

Ursula is the mob that does the barreled attack. She casts it on her primary aggro target. If you're running around picking up all the mobs that spawn, you'll probably hit her and unless a dps is focusing on her, you'll be first on her threat list. That means she chain CC's the tank. It has nothing to do with drinking the mug that gets thrown.

Killing her is meaningless as she simply respawns after a few sec. What you need is dps that can burst down that last 2 mil health on Coren before he wipes your party.
