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
