Even if the numbers go through the roof the style of play many of us opted into is getting 180'd.

I don't think anyone is really complaining about the design and effectiveness of fistweaving. Everything that has been done to it has been pretty nifty and it appears to be an exciting way to play.

The big issues that people are up in arms about is two-fold. The first problem is this idea of a "support" class where you are no longer a healer as a fistweaver with the expectation of being 50% DPS and 50% Healer. This is a huge change and is honestly something that may cause some huge balance concerns throughout all of the raiding environments.

The second issue is that the remaining toolkit for monks who want to be actual healers seems to have been ignored during this whole process leaving it with a potentially unknown effectiveness but more importantly having a majority of it's toolkit being taken away. It's already looking like a square peg and round hole problem with monks just not having a diverse enough toolkit to be a 100% healer.

Go with Priest or Pala if u want to be in a top/save position this patch , if you only have an alt shammy then yes i would go with the shammy (aka best CDs in the game outside of 1min CD priests lolshell).

I would stay away from the monk healing (specially if u raid 10 man)for a while till the devs are really sure what they want to do with us ,whatever we can do other healers can do it too or better and with more utility and less or no RNG ...oh and btw if you are a casual player
aiming for normal mods then ignore all this and just play what you like.

The Mistweavers i know from my realm are one of the best and they out heal T2 Pallys , Shamans , Priests etc. THe only Healer that can keep up is a Druid , Monk healers are by far one of the best , Better then pallys , But if you want to sit there and tell ppl to stay away, Dont. For you guys wanting to know , Yes Mistweavers will be the best this patch and will always be great. By far the best healers in game. If your being outhealed by other healing classes besides druid, Your skill at Monk lacks 110%

Can't tell if serious. Monks will have a lower potential in 5.2 than they did in 5.1 while other healers will have a higher potential.

If a disc priest was getting out healed prior to 5.2 you should replace them. With the exception of garalon's damage modifier monks were pretty low. Druids are wrose than monks....

I needed a good chuckle thanks

What are you smoking? Because I'd like some of that delusional nonsense too.

@Kuwilei

Viability != Fun class to play

MW weren't OP by any stretch of the imagination in 5.1. They got nerfed hard and then got nerf more. The reason for the changes to MW in 5.2 was to get them away from Jab>Jab>Uplift because blizzard deemed it bad design, not for any other reasons.

What's annoying is that they got rid of the Jab>Jab>Uplift "rotation" and instead gave us an even more linear rotation of Jab>TP... Jab>TP... Jab>TP... it's even more bland now.

After blowing through a couple raids yesterday and today, I'm seeing some pretty big issues with the balance of the throughput. Basically, I'm on par with the other healers just I'm doing a little more than a tanks worth of DPS.

It's lacks focus. It seems you can do one thing ok(heal), or two things half-assed. I would much prefer to heal well. This isn't going to turn out for the best. In what raid do you need an half-assed healer with crap DPS? My brother's Paladin already does 30k HPS and 90k DPS in an Heroic using Battle Healer. The group does not even need a healer, so that means you would be better of with a Ret in a raid running Battle Healer along with another DPS, than to take some unfocused MW Monk trying to heal by doing garbage DPS. Why even bother?

Think it's you, not your class. Our Monk is ridiculously strong at the moment.

Also, holy mother of god, why would you necro a 20-day-old post?

Yeah, we're completely useless on Horridon.

Oh wait.
