What class did you re-roll from to Monk?
Not out of having any issues with the class. We had lost an off-tank at the end of Cata and I offered to fill in for MoP- Lock was more of my PvP character by that point anyways, so not so much a 're-roll' as rolling a new PvE character.
I always loved Monks in any game they're an option, and so here I am. I haven't tried Mistweaving yet, but I may down the line since I normally play healers. Brewmaster just felt like fun and hey, it is!
Druid. I am paranoid about our guild not having enough of a particular role, so I tend towards the multitaskers. Had my druid since vanilla, but just could not stand the shape shifting.
When monks were announced, I started prepping right then and there. Will monks be as good? In the long run. I have complete faith in Blizzard to balance PvE. They have always done that very, very well.
I am not panicking right now, because blizzard (imho) low-balled the monk abilities on purpose. They were not going to repeat how Death Knights were in Naxx 2.0.
Kind of where I've been at with the whole thing too. Still, leveled Druid first just in case, but... just don't know which of the 2 yet. Bad at these kinds of decisions.
BC- Hunter > Lock > Boomkin
WotLK- DK > H-Pally > Hunter
Cata- Hunter > Resto/Enh Shammy
Now its still my hunter, but Monk is looking like it might take over. I was just so upset after I started my Dwarf Shaman that they messed the class up so much. And Monks seem like they got the best of what could have happened with the Shammy. Enh and Resto were just bad at the end of Cata, wasn't giving me much hope.
Wrath-Cata: Death Knight
I have always wanted to play a more avoidance-based tank and I find that the Brewmaster playstyle is way more enjoyable than my old DK's deathstrike spam rotation. Way more active rotation and I feel rewarded for using my situational skills effectively.
TBC - lock/hunter
Wrath - pally/hunter
Cata - hunter/druid
Run in a 10 man guild and we had 2 druids (myself and a resto), also wasn't real happy with the changes to my bear.
Am absolutely loving my monk though.
