So just wondering what your guys thoughts are on this.
Currently there is one type of armor for each healing class (ie: Mail - Shaman, Plate - Paladin, Cloth - Priest, Leather - Druid). When Monks are implemented into the game, which type of armor do you think they will use? Or will they introduce a new type of armor for them? If Blizz decided to go the route and make them use an armor already implemented, I have a feeling whichever armor they are given the class that uses the same armor type will feel like they are getting the shaft because they have to compete for healing gear more so than any of the other classes.
So how do you think it should be handled? I think they should add bamboo armor or something like that and then if they are tanking, they can add in a talent to increase their armor from wearing bamboo items.
1) Bamboo and Pandas go hand in hand.
2) Bamboo is lightweight which would make it seem realistic that the character could be wearing it and still perform fast physical attacks, unlike how bulky they would be if they wore plate.
3) No competition for gear between healers.
The only downside, I think, would be that there would only be one class using that armor type.
