Hey guys,

WoD is here and i came back to my monk, Alliance, and i decided to embrace a new challenge, "Healing", a shoot in the foot some of you might think, but it's been fun, and bg's are alot of more fun, since i do it with a friend of mine (prot/gladiator war).

Why healing??? Well dps isnt really hard to be honest, specially when you have soo many monks trying to be FoTM.

And here it is.


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.


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.




I found this great youtube video, on pvp relating to burst.

 Monk (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator)

Dunno what to think of this except i don't like it.

I understand why they are doing it (making casters, cast again, and removing the blanket silences, but don't think 2 seconds will make a diference, unless they believe that those 2 seconds are the diference between the kill or not kill in arenas PVP).
It is up-loaded YouTube, or check it here.



Today a quick post guys, on how to lock down a caster for more a less 20 sec (and definitly force him to use a trinket.

This is the list of abilities.



What i normally do is bring the target till 80% and then start this combo:


  • Spear hand strike from the front to blanket silence. 
  • Leg Sweep (which normally will force the trinket)
  • Fist of Fury here the damage component helps tons in bringing down the target.
  • Paralysis (if your target at this point hasn't used the trinket, he will use almost guarenteed at this point. At this point paralysis from behind will give you 8 second stun this is a good time to change target until paralysis is almost over, so you have a good damaging window, and leave the other team on the backfoot).
  • Spear hand strike from the front so the blanket silence is off DR, and at this point you have setup a good oportunity, to get a kill.
From my experience in RBG's in which i am on healer CC duty, this is devastating, specially if in Leg Sweep and Fists of Fury you manage to get 2 healers (a common situation is that you see the healers moving toghether, so this aoe cc happens easily.

Try this guys and tell how it goes.


This is just a basic guide that i got from Lightbull, and also things personal experience, and so to help you get around the Monk's abilities, and to discuss play styles.

So let's get started.

Talents:
Lvl 15: Tiger's Lust
Lvl 30: Chi Wave
Lvl 45: Ascension / Power-Strikes (Playstyle choice)
Lvl 60: Deadly Reach (long range Paralysis) or Leg Sweep (AoE 5 sec stun)
Lvl 75: Dampen Harm (melee) or Diffuse Magic (casters)
Lvl 90: Invoke Xuen, the White Tiger


CLICK BELOW FOR THE REST OF THE GUIDE.
Finally i got around it, and yesterday started streaming on twitch.tv/spykermonk , check it, follow it, and ask anything you wan't about WindWalker monk. =) stay tuned, for stream times.

A gift for you guys, a WallPaper for the Monk Community.

Cya tomorrow, need to work on the 4gigs of 2v2arenas that i have (damn you slow computer).
Here it is guys the battleground of the day for you.


Hey everyone.

These last couple of days i haven't been able to play so i have been following closely the EU and US forums, and to be honest if i had to find a picture to represent what they look like, in relation to the monk changes, it would be this one.

QQ monk changes 5.2.
 Yep that's what is all about on the blizzard World of warcraft forums, some people go to the extend of saying, i don't know the monk class very well, but they are op and should be nerfed to the ground.

Well, instead of looking at this with a "defending my class" look, how about actually giving some solutions, for example:

Tiger eye Brew - for windwalkers that now works with mastery well, i has a percentage, this one is easy, tweak the percentages not much to see here.
Hey everyone!!!

Today i will talk to you about Monks in RBG's

Yes that thing that you are either healer or the groups look at you somewhat worried that they will have to carry you.


What i am saying is that, the niche for Windwalker's (DPS) and even Brewmaster's (Tank/Flag carrier), is somewhat viewed with less then perfect spot filler.

Apart from all the Squishiness Brewmaster Monk's have, they can take quite a beating, if played properly, and better they can avoid such damage with spell like transcendance (teleport just like the lock's)

Monk Tier 15 and Season 13 Armor Sets PreviewKeep in mind that this is just a preview and the final sets may be different!

Yesterday was a slow day in terms of wow (mainly because i was nuking people away in my lvl85 hunter (shame on me)).

But here are the new sets guys. Is it me or do they have a strange Naruto feeling to them? Either way me likes.

Hey everyone, this has been a slow week, between leveling professions, doing daylies, raids, bg's to get the gear, arenas, our ocasional Celebrity guild ganking on hordes that insist on not letting us do our dailies(yes there are some horde guilds that will attack our guild members on sight xD go figure), and IRL job, haven't had much time to do something worth posting to you guys, but as things start to fall in place, things will happen, videos will show up.

At the moment trying to record with the razer game booster program, but the quality doesn't seem the best sometimes, when i mouve my camera fast which happens alot in bg's.

Have a few things that i want to record:
  • Making use of Crackling Jade and its knockback to throw people from cliffs(always fun).
  • Duels vs each of everyclass.
  • Bg's (or fights that are worth recording, even if i lose).
  • The ocasional raid.

And besides all that, family still needs time (oh well, have plenty of time to sleep in the weekend).

See you all in-game.


Just got an e-mail from Razer saying that i got approved for Beta tryout of Gamebooster, here it is.
Razer game booster beta


Will try it out today after work, and see what goods it brings, probably like all Razer things it will be good.
So Mist of Pandaria hit our homes yesterday night, i have been leveling my Monk Spyker, as fast as a i can, with the interruptions of sleep, IRL job and other situations (bah they don't let us play games all the time now). Anyway just an update on how Spyker is leveling up, hope that by before the weekend im level 85 at least.

About the windwalker spec, well to me so far it seems extremelly fluid, i have to say it suits my playstyle, also about the other monks i have seen around i noticed something that bothers me, i have been using zen sphere in dungeons because, well it deals damage and if it is passive damage and helps me kill mobs then why not use it.
I know that at low level stuff takes too hits and dies, but in dungeons everyone is pulling huge packs of mobs more then they should sometimes, and i have prevented a few wipes with my zen sphere up and cooldown usage of Expel harm.

Spyker windwalker monk
How is your monk comming along, have you encountered other situations like this?
Why blizzard, why the nerfs???

Talents
Guess those mages were complaining, oh well, still alot of other stuff to use.

Also, Mists of Pandaria Beta - Build 16016
A new beta build will be deployed on beta realms soon.

So now that we have a set date for Mist of Pandaria, let's start looking how the windwalker monk is shapping up.

One thing that came up recently was, what the Windwalker monk would gain from the druid if targeted by the spell  (symbiosis), and apperantly it isn't too bad, we get


File:Spell druid bearhug.png
______________________________
|Bear Hug                                          
|Melee Range                              
|Symbiosis: Melee attack that stuns
|the target for 3 sec and each 1 sec
|deals 2% of the Monk's health in
|damage.  The Monk is immobilized |for 3 sec.
_______________________________________

Not bad too be honest, although i see this being alot more usefull in PvP than in PvE, but good things await us by the looks of it.

Also just though of a thing, in terms of the damage this ability deals, before using Bear hug, in combat changing the weapon and trinkets from agility or other stats, to stamina drenched items would increase the damage it deals.

Lets do a little napkin math!!!!

Our prayers have been heard, and today we got a release date for Mist of Pandaria, behold.


Now, its a 2 month full force farm mode, for mounts, gold and heirlooms.

Pandaria here we come.
