Power Strikes vs Ascension for PVP.

Which do you think is better? I've been using Ascension for ever and forgot to talent out of PS (I was doing raids prior to some bgs) and I notice it helping a lot. The spare chi is actually really nice and I feel like my spirit (9.4k) is good enough to the point where the mana I get back from Ascension isn't really needed anymore.

Anyhow. What's your opinions?

Power Strikes is honestly almost always better for pvp. Having that extra chi generation is huge, especially given that you don't get a ton of opportunities to actually sit and channel Soothing Mist. Getting effectively on-demand chi is crucial, especially when you're trying to keep someone else alive and really need that chi for Enveloping Mists.

Honestly, I'd roll with Ascension for the 15% energy regen alone. Being able to FoF into a RSK is a nice bonus as well.

Assuming you are talking about WW (I would run with Ascension becuase if you are WW (didnt check) having that extra build point vs getting a extra chi point imo is better as Ascension is a passive and Power Strikes has a CD also you already generate 2 chi points from jab :)

Ascension for sure. For starters, every WW monk who is a decent rating on the 3v3 ladder is rolling with Ascension. Why? Because 15% energy regen is huge and the maximum chi is just a bonus.

My monk hasn't even hit level 35 yet and even I know that the OP is talking about MW not WW.
