    Default Do I Like the Monk Class in WoW

    Since i have not tried tank or heal spec as much this is just on the DPS aspect of the Monk.


    i Like the class ALOT, so much so that it might/probably will become my main over Lenardo (my Shaman)

    why, versatility, a good mix of abilities and a solid rotation, and honestly, it Feels right

    that and i love Touch of Death.

    Now i have to work on getting all their skills/abilities/talents up on the website.

    I think they're a pretty fun class - I've been considering a main swap. The tanking is a bit 'eh' in terms of fun-factor to me, but the dps is entertaining and I hear the healing is super engaging, though I don't like to heal so I haven't. Gotta spend more time on beta >.<

    dps is on par with my wife's hunter within ~1000 or so depending on if i use TOD.

    healing, my son heals dungeons as a healing monk, and he says it is easy.

    i'll make a gnome monk just for kicks but my main monk is going to be a panda due to my wife wanting to level a pandarian char.

    DPS is sub par. AoE DPS is outright awful, similar to rain of fire. Single target is below average.

    Their energy regen is pathetic for how much damage their abilities do. At least rogues combo point builders hit worth a damn. 6-9k for a chi builder, What? Is that a joke? Yea the other abilities hit hard, but you barely get to use them when you energy cap 15 seconds into the fight. They give you one CD to deal with it and fists of fury is supposed to help. The problem is fists of fury has an incredibly short range and ends up being a DPS loss if the boss moves so much as 1 foot away. If you ever played a melee before you know that happens OFTEN. Nevermind that a channeled ability on a melee just feels wrong.

    Healing is great. No complaints. Lots of fun.

    Tank played better when they had better energy regen. SAME problem windwalker has. Heck they are OP still, just less fun than before the energy nerf on beta.

    Why does Blizzard think that waiting on energy to pool is a fun mechanic? Rogues complain about it all the time.
