Healing Sphere, another joke from blizzard?

As a WW monk my healing sphere heals for 17k, and costs 60 energy....

17k/320k = 0.05

So 60 energy for a 5% heal? And this class is supposed to have off heal capability?

What the hell is blizzard thinking? Every ability monk has is entirely underpowered.

A paladin, shaman, druid or priest in DPS spec can off heal in pvp...

Monk.. No that's the garbage class, their burst sucks, they get locked down extremely easy, and they can't heal either.

Rogues, mages, DKs, warriors, warlocks and hunters can't offheal (technically a hunter's spirit beast can if you want to count it). And they manage.

What part of Healing Sphere made you think 'oh windwalker monks are obviously supposed to be excellent offhealers' exactly?

They all have much better self-heals than monks do, and they aren't even hybrid class. Jeez you aren't that bright.

I get where you're going with your point, but all those classes you listed are either pure DPS or are not a healing hybrid. DKs and warriors can already out heal healers in PvP.

It was great in Beta, now it's being tuned over and over, I am sure they will get it right by 5.1

None of those are monks.

I'm not saying that Windwalker doesn't have it's share of utility problems in pvp but it doesn't look like the design Blizzard used for WW was intended to allow for off healing.

WW Monks don't have anything but problems.

Let's not let monks offheal.

Let's not let monks do burst damage.

Let's not let monks stay on target in pvp.

Let's not let monks do anything except act as a distraction.

Yeah if you want to play a dps don't play monk right now too many problems in a ton of areas.

However their tanking and healing is real fun and can be quite powerful

Then Blizzard is rescinding on the design philosophy they've apparently had from the beginning. Monk brings nothing to the tab some other class doesn't already do for the luxury of being worse at it than what others do. The idea that a melee dps healer hybrid that has no ability to heal itself is laughable. In threes they would be the easiest class to roll over.

Our dps is fine, we just take a few seconds longer to reach our max dps. On long boss fights we should always be at the top three spots. In lfr I have been top everytime. In guild no so much do to the amount of running around. Hard to keep all buffs up.

A class blizz intentionally made weak such as to prevent DKs all over again is weak, film at 11.

In PvP it is TERRIBLE, beyond horrible.

And even in PvE WW monks are supposed to be at least 5% behind the rest.

They couldn't have intentionally made it at least as strong as other classes? Every PvP player that prefers DPS is getting completely trolled if they rolled a monk.

In pvp I am a God when I have all my cooldowns. If I don't have cooldowns I am a great Forrest Gump. " RUN FORREST!"

And every PvE player that prefers DPS is loving the monk. Top of the charts and a blast to play.

Stop your whining and try posting something constructive for once.

You don't have much pvp experience do you. If you think you're doing good as a monk, you'd be melting faces using ANY OTHER CLASS.
