Upcoming Tiger Strikes Hotfix

Monk
1 2 3 8 Next
We recently found a significant bug with Tiger Strikes for all Monks, and wanted to explain the incoming fixes that will resolve it.

The bug itself was twofold. First off, Tiger Strikes was incorrectly able to trigger from unsuccessful autoattacks (such as those that miss, or have been dodged or parried). However, it was NOT able to trigger from Multistrikes. We’ll be fixing Tiger Strikes to its intended behavior: it will no longer activate on unsuccessful autoattacks, but will be able to activate from successful Multistrikes.

Fixing those bugs will result in an overall damage gain for all Monks, so we’ll be making a couple other adjustments:

  • For Brewmasters, we’re going to reduce the damage done by Keg Smash by 20%. We felt that Brewmaster DPS was too strong already, and the Tiger Strikes fix only pushes them further.
  • Windwalkers and Mistweavers were a little weak, which is why we’re increasing Rising Sun Kick’s damage amplification debuff from 10% to 20% in 6.1. The Tiger Strikes fix will be a small damage increase on top of that, but we’re going to keep an eye on where Windwalkers and Mistweavers end up as a result of it before making any further adjustments if necessary.

These changes were not able to make it into the final 6.1 build, but will be hotfixed in shortly after 6.1 goes live.
:D
What a rare fix
pour one out for our fallen BRM monks.
Anything about WW's awful state in pvp that will not be much better next patch? I hate to complain on a post regarding fixes thatll help damage, but the silence of mods has been deafening on these forums since wod launch.
thanks lore senpai

Can we get an eta on the zen sphere detonate fix?

I'm kind of puzzled where the bug is even coming from since stripping all my gear off puts me at 0% haste and 0% ms and it still fizzles so it doesn't seem to be an issue with secondaries. I don't see how the new DoT tick system would be messing anything up if it's happening with 0% haste either. Is there work being done to correct this or is it on the back-burner because no one even uses zen sphere anyways?
Hi Lore,

I think this is one of only two bugs related to Tiger Strikes that are currently in the game. There is a significant discrepancy between 1h/oh and 2h for Crane Stance Tiger Strikes uptime, which makes me believe that the proc rate for Mistweavers has not been adjusted to factor in that they have half the AA events that WW and BrM do.

You can view the discrepancy in the following logs, which have effectively the same gear outside of 670 Staff of Tectus vs 686 Koloch Na/oh

2h: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/YRNCXxgaKjbHnt7W#type=auras&boss=-2&source=6&start=0&end=7190568&ability=120273
1h/oh: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/DW3fHCp9LjR1ycYV#boss=-2&start=551740&end=5528902&type=auras&source=10&ability=120273

That's fixed in patch 6.1, which is scheduled to release tomorrow.

Can we get an ETA on when Enhanced Roll is going to be fixed?

Edit: Enhanced.

To add to this, WOTM is not 70% auto damage increase for 1 handers in crane stance, it's bugged to 25%. You can see this in game by looking at the tooltip of way of the monk in serpent vs crane.

If you look at the auto attack damage done in antonie's logs, you see the big difference in total dps from auto attacks from a 2hander (at a lower ilvl even!!) vs a 1 hander

If any of these other issuses could also be fixed, that'd be brill.

Same thing was said when DK's blood boil was nerfed ... DK's are still doing stupidly well.
