Brew Master Monk!

Arenas
Been messing around on my Brew Master Monk Recenly in 2s/3s! It seems fairly broken! Just a heads up!
The self heals are strong. I've messed around in some skirms and BGs on mine but finding other tanks bring more to the table when you want to cuck your opponents.

I’ve found the damage output of Brew Master to be higher than the other tank specs.

What talents and htalents have you been running for it?
Blood DK is a sleeper actually.
It has self-healing now?

Self healing, melee attack reflection (pretty much an endless karma), 4 cc abilities! And damage is on par with WW!

Tanks should be the Control damage support class. Hope we see many different Tank comps in Arena. I hope double Dps becomes a thing of the past.

It never is. Or even close for that matter. Most Tanks need Dps buffs. Or at least one decent damage ability.

No it doesn't. Exaggerations always happen. If Tanks were doing Fury, Ret or Rogue damage there be an outcry. They don't have much damage though. WW has some great burst especially at 120. Brew is no where close. They are a damage support class so they should be putting out pressure. Some are undertuned.
I must be missing something. It seems fun currently——more than in Legion——but the damage is what you'd expect from a supporting tank class (i.e. low-ish).

With the reflect comment, are you referring to Hot Trub? Because I tested that, and it seemed to do... virtually nothing.

Guard seems like the better final tier talent, too, since with Spitfire you don't need to cooldown reduction on BoF.

Agreed on guard, that's seemed to have the most value in the bag I've ran at least.

most would be okay with it if tanks had much, much, MUCH less defensive power
the only way tanks being viable can be balanceable is if they're just DPS with different utility
unkillable livelords are never fun to fight

Blood DKs kinda ruined the Tank image with being Healers and so many ways to live forever. It left a bad taste in people's mouths and from there Tanks were hated. Not to mention no melee could attack one or they just would keep healing. Really bad design. Well we made it through that and hope we don't have any tanks functioning that way again.

I thought WotLK Prot was where a Tank should be as far as mechanically and had great damage with CC. They could be easily killed too just got to get them through their CDs like everyone else.
Tanks do have much much less defensive power than in Legion. Active mitigation does nothing for magic damage, which a majority of classes do. And it does much less against damage now than in legion as well. Prot pally ShoR went from 50% some mitigation against everything (dependent on mastery) to increasing my armor mitigation from 48.44% to 68.88%.
