    BOA armor for monks?

    So alot of people are going to be leveling Monks when MOP goes live so my question is what about BOA gear? Is blizzard going to add new BOA gear for monks or are we just suppose to use druid BOA gear?

    Does anybody know?

    thx!

    Well since they'll be using the same gear that druids/rogues use in end-game content it would only make sense that they use the druid/rogue BoA gear don't you think?

    they seem to be agi leather or intel leather (for the healer) so rogue/druid heirlooms would work, as far as weapons go id say 1h swords for the moment (dps/tank) and the staff for caster

    Why would you use BoAs on a new race and new class? Not to mention a whole new starting zone... /confused

    leather rogue/druid like, not sure about the weapons but probably the 1h mace

    Newsflash: brand fresh zone ends in 20 levels.
    Then it's back to Azeroth.

    Not to mention that nobody is obliged to make panda monks. They are thematically linked, but entirely separable.

    leather heirloom like druid and rogue, for weapon i think the agi 1h mace x2 would be fine for dps/tanking.
    i think i go to use the heirloom only when i finish all the quest of the starting zone

    Yep, most likely.

    The only thing added to BOA repertoire I see is agility staff (feral druids and maybe monks - we don't know the numbers yet)

    could immagine people wanting to get up fast to be able to raid when their guild starts.

    Also, as far as weapons go, they said that monks would be using staffs for healing, polearms and staffs for tanking, and 1h weapons/fist weapons for dpsing so my bet would be on them using the agi weapons like the mace for leveling. Not sure what you'd use for leveling as a tank because there's no polearm/staff with agi on it but meh, we'll see what happens.

    I don't know about, which armor would be good for healer :<

    They don't have mana, and base on melee combat, so I would assume it's leather Agi\Sta\Crit\Haste... What do you think?

    when they're in healing stance they have mana can't quite remember the source but it was in one of the earlier Q&As

    They do have mana, they said that like ferals with energy speccing into resto it changes to mana, when a DPS / Tank monk switches to mistweaver itll go from Chi to mana.

    Stained Shadowcraft for Brewmasters & Windwalkers (Tanks & Melee DPS)…

    Preened Ironfeather for Mistweavers (Melee Healers)…

    That is all…
