Shunn has no idea. Spirit regen is just bad and it was just a kick in the face when they gave us a .33 spirit regen on our set.


Pvp son..

I really hope they don't turn all our gear to trash taking out the 2 pieces Nat's bonus...

If they do, well, they've taken enough from me, I'll play something else.

Pacers101 makes a decent point about attack speed and dual wielders, but that applies to the old way of playing where monks rarely used spirit-spending, damage-dealing skills.

Post 1.07, try spamming Overawe, hitting Wave of Light, refreshing your Blinding Flash, and you will find yourself with zero spirit and waiting several seconds even when dual wielding to use any of your skills. As your spirit replenishes you will have to choose between Wave of Light and Overawe, but not both. At the same time, you will have to keep a reserve for Serenity or Breath of Heaven or Sweeping Wind if the timer runs out.

Comparing this to the only other melee class, Barbarian, there is NO Into the Fray or HotA type synergies to replenish fury (or spirit for monks) constantly. Barb also has numerous other bonuses to fury generation, like the IK set, passives, and Mighty Weapon. Monk looks pathetic in comparison.


I've been doing this for weeks now actually (playing around with stuff) - you just have to use the reduced cost for Wave of Light + Exhaled Soul. You will run out of spirit if you are trying to spam mantra+bells non stop without using FoT and the mob is still alive though.

Welcome to the problem WDs have had since the beginning of the game. Except we can't fix it with IAS. Get in line.

WD got a buff to mana generation not too long ago. We haven't even had that.
