Monks are getting buffed? Really?

General Discussion
They kinda need it.
Really, really needed.
Um. Congratulations OP you read the front page.

Was the link necessary?
Yeah, and all reports point to it being highly needed. Nothing major changing for Mistweavers though. Sad day.
Monk buff is fine. Hunter buff on the other hand...
They kinda need it.
He's mad they're taking his easy buttons away in rated pvp. Hug it out bro.
Yay!
We got nerfed to the ground after our "buff" for 1 day, yeah really. I wish they'd fix up Mistweavers though... For a class that's supposed to be some sort of damage dealing healer, fistweaving is insanely mana-negative. Still better than WW though. Honestly all WW needs is a 5% buff to our stance, which should put us in an decent spot.

Liking that we'll get Nimble Brew :)

All healers are made to be damage dealing. Priests and monks are the best at it, though.

Also

Nimble Brew now also removes horrify effects, and reduces the duration of horrify effects and fear, and is available to all Monk specializations (formerly only available for Brewmaster and Windwalker Monks


Finally. I was sick of wasting my nimble brew on accident and not being cleared of horrify.

It's nice, but really doesn't do much for me =)
Whelp last I looked WW were like bottom class for DPS (I said CLASS, not SPEC, so don't come at me with 'But Sub, but Marks.') So they might need this

True :) But good for PvP so there's that!

Which is why it doesn't really do much for me =P

Honestly, I don't like that change. Only because horrify was implemented specifically to bypass fear breaks/immunities. Once you get to the point of counter counter counters it starts to get kinda silly. It'd be like if they gave someone super silence that stops spells that could normally be cast while silenced (but is otherwise identical to silence) or an immunity that couldn't be removed by mass dispel. Or a snare that still slowed down glyphed ghost wolf below normal speed.

Seems like maybe they should have just made it so you couldn't use nimble brew during a horrify.
Discussions about PTR should go in the PTR forums.

None of you have any Melange.
So what Ah got was:
-Warlock DC won't bypass NB, how nice (also MW's get it_.
-Spearhand nerf... again? Didn't they already nerf it?
-Ring o' peace: "Enemies that ... cast spells on allies" Confused even in context. Presumin' this means harmful spells. 3 sec disarm subject ta DR... Pffaahahaha!
-Some extra WW damage on abilities.

So... does the current RoP DR with itself? An' ta add, 3 sec reduced by ah chain in pvp is 1.5 + DR. Tha... nvm.
Besides the damage buff, it seems rather minor overall from mah PvP perspective.
