Best race for a monk

Prev 1 2 3 4 14 Next
Why a panda... Well how about not having to worry about another cooldown to maintain... And who doesnt like free stats for eating food... Oh and /dance is pretty cool... And in wc3 a monk was a panda... :-P
If only the shoulders were a little bit bigger, and their girth didn't stretch the hell out of the armor when they run, I might of been a panda. Still thinking about race changing to one. That food buff is really hard to pass up.

I find it fun and amusing being a draenei monk.

extended food buff

All of your other arguments are valid, but the food buff is not double duration, but double effect. I get 600 agility from my food vs 300 agility a non-Pandaren will receive.

To the OP: whichever race you are most comfortable looking at. In the long run, racials really mean diddly and squat (though this can be argued for high high level PvP).

LOL, what? That's one of the most ignorant things I've ever heard regarding PvP. How can you debate that the human racial (which acts like a trinket) has no effect on PvP? You get two burst damage trinkets to wear then.

BE has silence. You like fighting casters who can just free cast on you all day?

Orcs have a free damage trinket built in, the reverse of humans.

I could certainly go on but you should be able to get the point by now
Well I went blood elf for the racial, until I realized it was not giving me back mana in mistweaver spec, but Chi.

Obviously it's personal taste. If you're going to DPS with it, the orc is probably the way to go, if you're going to heal, troll and pandaren are probably on par.

Orc IMO. Blood Fury, 15% stun resist, 1% expertise to axes/fists (worth 102.5 expertise).

340 expertise

PvE Pandaren

PvE Pandaren
PvP Undead

Iv now gotta disagree with people saying Human for pvp for monks because the pandaren racial you get a 3 sec stun and imo if your mistweaver is the way to go.
Draeni reporting in rofl :P Looks like im the only one, and frankly, thats exactly why I rolled it!

No but seriously, female draeni looks awsome ;) Cant stand pendaren bouncing animations.
PvE Pandaren
PvP Human

PvE Pandaren
PvP Undead

I agree except Undead is also a fair choice for PvE Brewmaster also
So there are female trolls!!! I have yet to see one in game.
Tauren. Kick someone with a giant hoof, and they're going to stay down. The fact that we're also the shining beacon of grace and agility is just icing on the cake.
Belf hands down!
As much as I like the way male orcs look as monks, undead and blood elf both seem better for pvp. The pandaren disorient racial shares a dr with paralysis, which is on a 15 second cooldown, and none of their other racials really matter in pvp.

Even troll is pretty good for pvp, actually. I like doing 5% more damage to druid forms and hunter pets. :)

I rly wanna go panda just to see the new starting area and new content.

Starting a panda to see the new content and choosing panda for your class's permanent race are two different things.

For me, monk is about mistweaver and solo'ability. So my ally monk is human for the spirit boost and my horde monk is forsaken for touch of the grave. I tried troll first, but not only does touch of the grave equate to more health when melee'ing, but it also adds to damage slightly.
2 Things- Rested Exp and double food bonus.

Even if belves had a 'racial' that reduced their stats by 60%, people would still probably only roll belves.


So overrated.
