So a few changes happened, some a quality of life improvement, others a plain buff.
_______________________


Talents
  • Chi Explosion's visuals should now be more visible and the ability's sound effects should no longer be too quiet.

General
  • Rising Sun Kick (Windwalker, Mistweaver) now causes enemies to take 15% increased damage (down from 20%).
  • Tiger Palm (Brewmaster, Windwalker) now extends up to 130% of its normal duration when refreshed, similar to periodic effects.

Not bad Hotfixes to be honest.

I want to try and start focusing on doing pvp with crane stance, in bg's 1v1 it stand quite well on it's own, and you can do some decent damage.

Another thing I was pleaseantly suprised was WindWalker, their damage felt good, and had enough tools to deal with non OverPowered classes (i'm talking to you ferals).

As promised arena matches. Any advice is welcome by the way, still trying to improve all i can.



Ok, normally i don't do this but i think this guy (Tosan) with his monk (Galaxyfist) launched a YouTube video of his arenas matches where he reaches 2600 rating, which some people said that it was simply not doable for a WindWalker Monk, things like these should be praise and looked at, so we can take advice and pointers from it.

Here is the movie if you want to see it.


 
Has predicted Spoils is down, quite a fun fight to be honest, the video is being uploaded to youtube, and as soon as it is available, it will be posted here.

Here it is. 
 



After many napkins (full of pseudo math), and taking the data from simcraft, i went to wowhead, and compiled the BiS gear list for 2 x 1hand,

And for a fast look to have while raiding here is the image of it.




On this post I will explain how to get a "huge starting burst" at the beginning of a fight.

Expel Harm to 3-4
 Pre-potting (and racial buffs)
    Chi-wave before combat starts (pay attention to pulls, ninjapulls are not cool).
     Xuen (if talented)
 Tiger Palm (to get the buff rolling)
 Rising Sun Kick (to apply debuff and do initial damage)
X2 (to regain 4chi and TEB stacks)
 Tiger Eye Brew (for them DEPS)
 Fists of Fury (unleash it all)

To me this netted me a 400k burst on the target dummy, self buffed without pre-potting and orc racial buff.

After testing with flask/ food/ pre-potting/ racial buff/ 8stacks of TEB (unlucky procs i guess) went from the 400k to 462k.


A detailed breakdown of the damage.



Keep in mind that as a monk our damage will plummet as soon as FoF drops, but the windwalker isn't a sprint runner, we are a long distance runner (fighter) and while the others damage starts falling we keep going up steady.

Hope this helped, and tell me about how do you guys start your fights, i have seen people saying that is better to start with RSK than with TP.






So yesterday we managed to down the Heroic version of the Fallen protectors.

The tactics were the same except the kill order that now was Rook - Sun - He.

Also we promoted the cleave damage in-between HP plateus, meaning we focused Rook, and left the cloaks and abilites like RSK splash damage (dot) take away bits of the other's HP.

When i find out who recorded this fight i will post it here, also we did a few tries in Norushen HC and left him at 8%, so tonight there if everything goes well there should 1 or 2 new hc kills.

(FOUND IT)




This is a clean fight without much to worry.

You will be mostly on boss. Always kill Totems and Banners first. Leg Sweep adds like the Arcweaver and the Shamans. Try and stun the Assassin with Fists of Fury. Do not touch if he's in defensive, kill adds. (Avoid using Chi Wave if you can. You DO NOT want Nazgrim gaining any rage during Def Stance.)
I found this great youtube video, on pvp relating to burst.


This is a punishing fight for melees, but we can make it work, let's break it down then.

Talents that i use for this fight.



Tiger's Lust for mobillty on demand, getting out of oozes and what not.





Chi wave because of its healing/damage component and short cd already making it a part of my rotation.




Ring of piece because bosses are affected by disarms.






Diffuse magic well as a damage dealer your only source of harmful damage is mage and anything to mitigate it, is good.




Rushing Jade wind, due to it's low cd and because i like to send a clone to the oozes and do some AOE on them with this ability.


Now to the fight itself.


IMPORTANT:The Dark Shamans are susceptible to Grapple Weapon, which not only decreases their melee damage but also increases the performance of the monk who used it. It essentially becomes a DPS cooldown, increasing your damage dealt by 5% for 8 seconds on a 60 second cooldown.


  • If targeted for Ashen Wall or Foul Stream, always aim it away from your raid, and away from the kiting path of the bosses.
  • Touch of Karma during Geyser if you wish to stand in it, roll away if not.
  • Stoneskin as needed, and Diffuse Magic works well with Toxic Mist.
  • Kill the boss at all costs, range will kill the adds.


ATTENTION:One thing to note for all cloak users, if you aim near the adds at all during a cloak proc, you can get aggro and they will come to you and kill you if you do not notice that they aggro'd to you.

(HC tactics for monk)

So, you killed Immerseus and The Fallen protectors, and you just went thru some trash, now you get to the Norushen fight, where you actually fight the an Amalgamation of corruption.

Let's see, a fight with adds that sometimes get clumped up, happens more at 25-man: Check
A phase where you need to kill 5adds : Check
Magic (shadow damage): Check

So talents for this fight are:


(Heroic tactics)

On this boss i have the worse advice ever, CLONES, CLONES EVERYWHERE!!!

Ok now that is behind us, let's see, the fight step by step.

My guild normally starts on Rook, with this you get your clones on He, and on Sun.

When we get Rooks at 66% and he starts his phase of desperate measures, is where it shows if you are fast on your monk fingers, put your clones on the last adds to die, normally this means, clones on the melee adds and you on the caster add.

When Rooks Phase is done and he returns, this time your clones are going in diferente targets.

The targets for the clones are Rook and Sun, this is because we will be hitting Hee, and when his phase starts a new add will show up and you are free to hit him if he targets you, use touch of karma do deliver the damage back to him.

So, now Hee and Rook are out of the way, it is Sun time, place your clones on Rook and Hee, and nuke Sun till her phase, she will disappear, and everyone including tanks should be in the middle to kill adds right, this is where the huge damage will appear, we have a awesome talent for aoe, remember guys, Rushing Jade Wind.  So Sun moves away, and what you have to do is target one of the big adds, and continue your rotation, but incorporate RJW, evertime it is off cooldown.

Your dps will sky rocket.
Yes i know, the fight is supposed to be one target at the time, but well, one monk doing it wonk make a diference.

After the all he phases are done, rinse and repeat, also everytime 2 bosses/adds are toghether use RJW.





First boss in Siege of Ogrimmar, let's see this boss from a Windwalker monk point of view.
What can be done to improve your job and help the raid.


Tip
WindwalkerAllSwirlTranscendenceYou can port through the whirl beam
WindwalkerAllSha BoltTranscendenceYou can port out of the Sha Bolt's collapsing
towards the  center as P1 ends
WindwalkerAllSha PuddleDisableUse disable to slow and/or root the adds, but
they die so fast i'm not sure if is worth it
WindwalkerAllSha PuddleLeg SweepAdds are stunnable. Up to you if you want to
Leg sweep a group of 2 for 5 seconds, or maybe
try and ox wave 2 sets, but that seems error
prone.
WindwalkerAllSha PuddleTouch of DeathDo not forget to use Touch of Death on the
adds
WindwalkerAllContaminated PuddleHealing SphereAwesomeHealing Spheres actually work on an NPC!
WindwalkerAllContaminated PuddleChi TorpedoTentativeChi Torpedo Heals the adds, but it's pretty
underwhelming unless you can cleave damage and
healing on a bunch
WindwalkerAllContaminated PuddleGlyph of Targeted ExpulsionDoes Not WorkGlyph of Targetted Expulsion sounds good,
but when the chi is pretty meaningless for a
WW/BrM, Healing Spheres just to more healing
than an Expel Harm, cut in 1/2. The only way
the glyph and EH would pull ahead would be
counting the damage as useful too,
which is a stretch, especially when other glyphs
are good.
WindwalkerAllSha PuddleFlying Serpent KickTentativeFSK Slow should work on the adds too
WindwalkerAllSha PuddleChi BurstMake sure chi burst is up to do a big healing
and damage cleave on adds at the start of
phase 2

I haven't been posting alot of content, but seeing the amout of searches for the best trinkets in 5.3 for PVE I decided to help out, and give you my list of trinkets.
So this kill took us awhile to get, mainly because people kept screwing up the kicks, and letting the Bat tank go bellow the required HP, but we managed, and i got myself some new gloves, not tier but new gloves.

Here is the kill video:


Probably today or tomorrow we will have a Maegera Tips, and kill video to show.
Finally i decided to sign up to facebook with Spyker, it will be a way, of gathering all things like
