How are monks in PvP? Weapon Types?

Monk
Hey guys, I couldn't really seem to find a clear definitive answer to this question but:

How are monks in PvP? specifically BrM and WW?

Also what Weapon types are the best right now?

Simple answers are welcome too. From what I understand people have been arguing about rotation and complexity, I just want to know if they straight out do well and can hold there own compared to other classes.

I was also curious about weapon type. I've been using fist weapons/duel wielding anything from axes to maces to swords for WW Spec. What would you guys say is the best for a Wind Walker? For that matter maybe we can get a few people to list the pro's and con's of all weapon types so no one has to look all over for a answer :)

Thanks ahead of time!
Hunters are 1 shotting me pretty much. other than that I can compete 1vs1 with everyone. Love chasing people down. Damage doesn't seem great but maybe it will get better. I hit 100k rising sunkicks now,
Pretty poorly...dont even ask...just dont
It didn't change much in beta sadly, so the short story is you can make it work but any other class would be better, noticeably. Monks have no ability to withstand heavy periods of damage and/or cc.

For now, it's mainly a PvE class unless you're a masochist.

I played a Hunter and loved PvP since release, I doubt Monk can be much worse than they were after BC hit. D:
Meh I enjoy the healing aspect in BG's but competitively in Arena? Probably not too good. Doesn't matter to me though as I don't plan to PVP much with this character.
My dps monk dies so quickly in BGs :( I was really excited for this class but it just isn't made for pvp
Monks are due for a large chain of buffs in regards to WW.
Good, let those buffs come.
