PATCH 5.2 almost in its final form (pun intended).

We are clearly approaching to a final version of the PTR, and at this point i feel more comfortable talking about the changes that are going to happen (oh god, it will be a long post, but informative noone the less), also i will try to make it as clear as i can.

(Page-break below so this post isn't ultra big size on the main page of the blog)

Good Morning everyone.

Today's news:

 Monk (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator)

  • Windwalker
  • Brewing: Tigereye Brew now gains 1 charge after spending 3 Chi (was 4 Chi), increases damage by 1% per stack (was 2%), can stack to 20 but only 10 charges can be consumed per activation, and a user interface alert displays upon reaching 10 charges. Stacks of Tigereye Brew are cleared at the start of a raid encounter. This ability is improved by Bottled Fury.

Well i can't say i wasnt expecting this, since on the ptr's everyone was saying that monks had an insane burst now when this new mastery cames into play.

Yesterday i went to HoF and we are on Wind Lord.

Why can't some people watch out where they step and where they place the bombs ARGH!!!

we just didn't get the kill at one point because of that, bah, the fight if you want to see it and comment or give any advice is on my twitch channel:

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).
This has been a quiet week, and i haven't talked about Patch 5.2 because, well it's still in the PTR, somethings are set in stone, other not quite, so instead of posting "everyday" the Blizz blues changes, i will only address them right before the launch of patch 5.2, including an article refering to the new stats of ww monk mostly because of the changes our mastery will suffer.

After that i will leave you a video of a few server friends decided to do, yes i "hate the harlem shakes aswell" but it was promoting server action and people getting toghether, which is always good.

It is up-loaded YouTube, or check it here.

There you go Spyker WW monk Arenas 2v2 #3

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.

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


Slow days in the monk life, but tonight at 21:30GMT raid stream at:
