Making stagger more active

Brewmasters feel really passive to me when compared to Protadins.

I'd like a glyph that changes shuffle to make BoK something that is used more strategically.

For example, rather than a flat 20% for 6 seconds, have BoK apply two buffs, one that staggers for 20% for 3 seconds, and a second that staggers 10% for 6 seconds.

This would give the player more agency and feel less like "I'm going to keep my buffs up and after stuff happens to me I'll purify it."

er... Purifying brew isn't active enough for you?

These tanks already have too many buttons man. Don't make it more complicated.

You're trying to compare two classes that aren't really comparable. Shuffle is the equivelant of what prot pallies have passively i.e. more armor/block. If you were going to compare any BrM spell to shield of the righteous (realistically the only "active" mitigation spell pallies have) i'd compare it more to guard or elusive brew.

How are your changes any different then that?

That pretty much sounds like an awful idea. Unless Blizzard were going to add a large armor increase to Ox Stance. But if you want to play like a Protection Paladin, my advice is to simply play a Protection Paladin. There's nothing stopping you from doing it, and it will have all of the changes you seem to want for Monks.

You do realize that the Shuffle buff is what makes a monk tank a tank instead of a dps? We don't have the passive mitigation to tank a raid boss without Shuffle up, which is why it has to have 100% uptime. I've always considered our AM a combination of PB and EB anyway. BoK has nothing to do with Stagger itself, which is what our AM is linked to - it is all about the Shuffle buff. Nerfing the buff duration we get from BoK would make us incredibly weak tanks.

EDIT: For comparison, your suggestion would be equal to telling Paladins that their armor would be reduced by 20% or more whenever they didn't have SotR up.
