02/13/2013 03:01 PMI currently am in a toss up between druid, monk and priest. I know the play style of both druid and priest but I have no clue how MW monk plays or feels in arenas or bgs. So here a few questions(try to be constructive and detailed in your responses).

The style for MW Monks is kinda not describable, but its kinda mashed up with Disc Priest's spell casting and RDruid Hot's & Defensives, Pallys bubble. Like i said can't really describe it. The only way is to really try it your self.

You can say that healing spheres are the holy shocks of Monks. Yea i usually cast them where ever i can cause of the low mana cost and good heals it produces.
-Once geared how is managing mana? Teas look fun and interactive, but I'm not looking for tedious.
Managing mana when geared, gemmed, reforged properly is really easy and good to do, everyone has their own way of managing etc but once you get the !@#$ of things everything goes smoothly.
-Is the diversity while actively healing refreshing and provide multiple options?
Sure, always provides multiple options, got a wide range of things.
Couple tips while healing with MW Monks is not to panic take things easy, to much i see people when a warrior has poped all cds and a hunter poped zoo where they would use all defensive Life cocoon, fortifying brew, dampen harm, HP trinket and start using big healz like Revive that cost 75k odd mana and hardcast surging mist or soothing mist and surging mist and they'd go oom so fast and thats the worst thing you can do.
Just take it easy if that happens, cast Life cocoon on 30% > hp when they going wild on you, use some self heal e.g Expel harm (also a chi builder), Use Healing Spheres cheap and good heals. And if they dispel your cocoon you still have 2 defensive(which you can use while stuned in 5.2) and a trinket, use one of them. keep LoSing.
Also nother thing is when your teammate is Line of Sighting you (LoS) and your trying to heal him is to use uplift where his getting low and you cant reach him (Don't glyph it for pvp) you don't have to be insight for you to use it, also renewing mist. Also use renewing mist on CD.
