one number tweak and it's our top build, simple as that. It's impossible to fix a characters core gameplay mechanics and buff it at the same time, so their going for a systematic upgrade process.
Thanks for the kind words, this is what I believe in too. The real issue with monk is the mismatch of its core concept. As RoS was launched,monk's attack speed modifiers were tweaked, spirit regenaration suffered, sets were underwhelming and spirit spenders were flawed. The changes that are being made in 2.1 (except exploding palm) are pushing monk in the right direction. Our modifiers are being tweaked (more is needed here), spirit regen has been excellent ( I am glad to see this change), sets have been improved; Sunwuko is being altered and inna's too is getting a small buff thanks to salvation, raiment is still raiment :( and our spenders are being buffed. If only we would receive some more attention, monks will start to bounce back :)
woo HH! btw do you still stream? If you do, then I might just have bad timing. Also, anyone know a rough time when 2.1 is supposed to come out?
Hey mate!, I just make videos and post on forums now, been too busy at work. 2.1 might come out before the end of this month.

You are very passionate sir and I do agree that class needs more balancing, but this where you and I come in. Any constructive criticism you add to the posts will definately be seen by blizzard, I can promise you that. So by all means, if you wish to add something, please do and I will pass your criticism through :)

The patch is yet to come live and maybe we can try to send positive feedback to the "powers that be" !
Im excited to see 2.1, that is my opinion and fortunate for me, im allowed to have one.
I am excited for 2.1 too and am hping that monks will be fun to play again !
Did we catch up to DH/WD's, no way. Are we even close to competing with them, heck no!
I will be hard to agrue with your point because its very true. I do have a silly theory of mine as to why DH and WD are so great. I think it has something to do with afk farming with pets. Think about it, any class that has pets as build is doing superb, not just WD and DH, but also lord commander crusader. The question my dear friend is, are the classes actually that great or are the pets way too strong? Monks and wizards do not have access to pets and look where we are, lagging behind :) I aim to make a post about this soon and it would be great if you could share your feedback there.
08/18/2014 03:32 PMHeres the thing. I wont be complaining about anything when theyre done. Ill complain now BEFORE theyre done, so that maybe they fix it?

There is no folly in compaining about something beforehand, especially when something could be done about it! So by all means, please do share your feedback and I will be glad to pass it along. All you and I can do is highlight the issues; eventually I am certain that our class will get better.
We have all been deceived by our own representative into giving the Monk devs too little pressure.
Whoa whoa, how can a monk question the tranquility of a fellow monk. That is unbecoming of him and doubt will soon be drowed in a wave of consciousness. Please understand that no matter how experienced and passionate we are, the end verdict comes from the devs only. I personally would gladly admit that they know more about the game they made, than what I know about it, even with my 2000+ hours invested! I am also certain that the class will improve in future and every feedback we provide will help them make the class better and better, even though it may not seem like it right now :)
