Windwalker's Lackluster Burst

Monk
WW burst seems to consist of using Fists of Fury and Rising Sun Kick, and then alternating Jab and Expel Harm (which do next to no damage) with Blackout Kick (which does fairly low damage).

Considering the damage+CC combos most DPS specs are capable of pulling off, this seems extremely weak and somewhat unreliable in comparison.
it is, and with the hard time monks have sticking on targets, it makes the lack of burst even more irritating.
Wait ... blackout kick does low damage ???? so 30k+ at my level for an ability that is free about 50% of the time is low ???? why does nobody tell me :(

edit : and 60k crits...

Must go around spamming AoE with a personal healbot/dispeller, no other way for a monk to get in the top 40 on the dps chart.

I've not once gone under 40k single target on a boss

I usually hold around 45-48k, and have pushed up to 50k a few times. in worse gear than what I'm wearing now. assuming the armory has updated

So... you had a holy paladin from your server heal you through a bg that multiplies your damage by up to 210%?

Every class who has a dedicated healer get his damage "multiplied by 210%".

if he has a pocket healer and an orb in that bg, then yes. and notice he had top dmg done, but only 4 KBs.... probably because monks have great consistant dmg, but 0 burst.

I'm up to 70k single target now with 5% LFD buff.
Sounds like OP was referring to PVP which indeed it weak, and replies were in regards to PVE damage which is ok.
what has burst got to do with getting a KB? i pumped all my damage into healers which err DUH is what most smart pvpers do KBs can be stolen i can wait till a person is at 5% then RSK for the KB but what would that prove? nothing

Im sorry yeah i had a heal bot im sorry you dont have guildies or friends to que pvp with im sorry you want a class that can heal its self top damage do crazy burst and get all the KBs get real
