Would someone please take a look at my monk and tell me if I'm doing something incredibly wrong that I'm apparently oblivious too? I'm following the recommended priority system and my dps is still low, I'm lucky to keep 75k during a fight. Could my problem be lack of experience on the monk because I hit 90 almost two weeks ago?

just at a glance, you should be using agility gems, not pure crit, if you wan't to hit socket bonuses that's fine, but do it with hybrids at your gear level (same goes for all those hit/crit gems)

I've got question about how I should be using chi. I've been spending chi as soon as I get enough to use the next ability in the priority (except with FoF where I try to get 4-5 chi up to make sure I don't energy cap) so my opener is usually Jab>TP>Jab>RSK. Is this a good way to do it or should I be trying to get to 4-5 chi before starting my priority (Jab>Jab>TP>RSK)? Thanks in advance!

Main goal is to prevent energy capping, so if you can jab -> TP and not energy cap, that's perfectly acceptable.

I have heard Crit is better than Mast with out RoRO and the 4 piece, but should I ignore Mastery, letting it be wherever it winds up naturally, or shoot to keep the two kind of even?

ignore it, it's a nice stat, but crit just works out to be stronger

I'm a bit confused right now when it comes to reforging and gemming. The current trend seems to be going for crit>mastery>haste, but is that only if you have RoRo?

that's for if you do not have a rune, but haste needs to be at 6-7k before you really value mastery over it

Ah, I see...so if one does not have RoRo, then Crit>Mastery>Haste (if your haste is at 6-7k). If not, Crit>Haste>Mastery?

And then I imagine with RoRo, Mastery>Crit>Haste.

If not Haste (6-7k, it's up to you to find your comfort zone) >Crit >Mastery > Haste

And then I imagine with RoRo, Mastery>Crit>Haste.

mastery just has to be 1 point above crit and haste, and that's the most ideal set up for it

this is calculated pre-raid buffs btw

Why'd you leave HIJ?

We dropped a raid day because people were burning out and leaving (surprisingly enough the people that were leaving for guilds with less raid days still left), then we killed Animus and it was decided we wouldn't kill Lei Shen anytime soon, so we were going to drop a raid day and take it easy. Friend in Dread has been bugging me to come over since early last tier, and the dropping down to 3 days, along with no one seeming to even want to try on Lei Shen.

So here I am

Can someone look over my stats/gems/enchants? Just curious if I have everything perfect.

No problems with dps really, just looking to min/max.

With that said, would switching to panda from nelf be any notable dps increase?

those 2 adept gems need to go away, even replacing them with pure mastery ones would be better

swapping to panda would be a dps increase, but not a large one, racial benefits can be completely negated by poor play.

Edit: Whole different questions.

Refrigerator, I have some questions about AoE.

Storm, Earth, and Fire - I noticed you didn't mention it, but that's probably because it is very straightforward.

On 2 to 3 targets, use SEaF with a single target rotation, on 4+ targets use the standard AoE rotation you listed?

Or did I get it wrong and am I missing something.

Yes, that's correct, however it's not worth SEFing if the target will be dieing very quickly, and you need to reapply tiger palm after popping out a clone so that he gets the Armor penetration buff.

Edit: Whole different questions.

Yes I am Endangered, I moved to Korgath and someone has the name sitting on a druid that they apparently play enough that Gm's won't free the name up.

About the heroic scenario weapons, should I be up-levelling them with the upgrading guy?

I just got 1 piece after upgrading my lfr weapon, not sure if the loss of socket bonus+socket+prismatic is worth it, but my gut feeling tells me the weapon damage makes up for it... Any thoughts?

I don't see myself doing any normal raids in the near future as my guild's raid group just dissolved, so yeah. Even so, I like to push my dps just for the sake of it.

yeah it's probably worth upgrading

If you have a Rune, I'd suggest using my app Zephyrus to find the best possible 1:1:1 reforging. Zephyrus takes into account profession bonuses and racial benefits, and can optimize your reforges, gems, and enchants. It is exhaustive, so it finds you the best answer on the first try, and often, it can find it within a few seconds. It can even minimize the number of gem/enchant changes required. Once it has found an answer, you can easily compute the differences relative to your armory and export the reforgings to Reforgerade.
