Now I have a little bit better gear on my Mistweaver, but I do have several pieces of heirloom gear for Brewmaster, so gear should not be much of a factor.
What I have found so far is that I survive better and have a slightly higher DPS on my Mistweaver. Heals are so strong that they can help keep my alive through anything. I can take 4 same level mobs easily, probably more than that. On my Brewmaster, well, even with Stagger and using Blackout Kick to help with Stagger and parrying, plus using Guard when it is up, I have a harder time honestly. And DPS is no better. The main issue seems to be energy starvation.
I'm sure I could improve my Brewmaster performance since I am new to a number of the skills, but I'm not sure it is worth the effort when I can't see it being that much better than Mistweaver.
Anyways, I'm currently going back to Mistweaver, but I was curious what others who have tried leveling with both specs think about each.
Thanks for any feedback!
