    Windwalker/class discrimination in pugs?

    Anyone experienced discrimination as a WW? I usually pve as BRM and pvp as WW so I'm not used to getting dismissed so often during mythic dungeon pugs. Even had a couple of groups/leaders who've asked the rest of the group whether or not WW/monk dps is any good (despite matching their ilvl criteria) and I thought most players had figured out how monks worked by now, feels like getting a demonology treatment :/

    Granted I haven't met too many WWs in general compared to all the other dps classes. I play on EU server btw.

    I'm just wondering whether or not its been a streak of bad luck or if there is any pattern to it? What is your experience?

    It's just that for 5 mans WW are generally not bringing the stat buffs you want. Druid, DK, shaman DPS cover most of the desirable ones.

    Either way, 5 mans are fluff content no reason they should be discriminating you even if monks aren't the best there.

    WW has a bad reputation because its difficult to play really well and it has certain gear requirements like 4pc and SDI that other specs dont, or at least not to the same extent. That being said, WW can be incredibly strong in 5mans with SEF, CX, and RJW, so any discrimination is due to them being idiots, not the spec being useless.
