I cannot, for the life of me, find a dedicated arena team or get into a Rated BG group. Its always "Why aren't you MW?" and "WW lol"
Now, personally, I don't really have an "issue" per say with WW. I like the class and how it functions; at times I even feel really powerful, and in control of situations. However, everyone seems to think that WW is garbage for PVP.
And now I'm seeing the current (as of 06/20/2013) changes:
Chi Brew now has spec specific tooltips and grants 3 Brew or Tea for your spec.
Healing Elixirs now also heals the next time a damaging attack brings you below 35% of your maximum health.
Power Strikes now also allows your next Spinning Crane Kick, Expel Harm, or Keg Smash to generate 1 Chi.
Chi Brew giving us 3 stacks is a horrible solution to a serious problem. Not to mention that Ascension is still better. Ascension gives us a passive 15% energy regen(which is awesome!) and that extra Chi can be used to weave in a Tiger Palm, or use the full combo to RSK>FoF.
Healing Elixirs is just more healing. I suppose I can't really complain about that. A free boost to 50% (depending on the hit, of course) provided Healing Elixir is up.
Power Strikes...is still inferior to Ascension.
I feel this problem is actually more base lined into the final tier of our talents. Our final tier, for the most part, feels randomly thrown together. Honestly, to get to the point, Xuen sucks. A lot.
I really,really hate this ability. It makes no sense for a WW (imo), and it really blows as a DPS cooldown. For those that are unaware, it is basically Death Knight Gargoyle...they do comparable damage...it is seriously almost an exact copy of the spell. I feel as though that Xuen should become baseline for WW, and that spot should be replaced with a real, damaging cooldown.
Our "situation of suckyness" extends from our lack of on-demand burst. Warriors have Recklessness and Avatar, Paladins have wings, Hunters have Beastial Wrath,ect....its all "push me to do lots of damage lolz." Seeing as how burst damage is a rather serious issue, I can see why no one wants to take me as WW. I do not have that on-demand burst. Tigereye sucks, and that Chi Brew change is a really bad band-aid attempt to fix it. It's simply not enough.
So, I would like to see us either given a damaging cooldown ability (that is unique to the class!), or give us something that is very very unique in terms of utility. Make people want a WW monk in PvP.
Feel free to have a (civil) discussion. Criticism is fine by me.
