    So A quick question for the community out there.. looking to tank Challenge modes as a brewmaster.. trying to decide with gear and such being scaled down and trash hitting so hard if a mastery stam build would be the best way to go? Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Crit and expertise with a smidgen of haste. Honestly the best way to learn them is do them. You just want to use vengeance to kill fast. Offensive is your best defence here.

    Ok, that makes sense. I did do a few of them with standard crit build that i use for normal raiding and they didn't go to bad, at this point my group is just looking to optimize wherever we can.

    They will change the Leg. Meta Gem not to procc for Tanks in 5.4 but they will buff the Tank Meta.

    Incorrect. The Capacitive gem is not being altered. They are buffing the Indomitable, yes.

    Hello everyone, I'm kinda a new tank with monks, so I need some guidance.

    This is my armory:

    http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...uramune/simple

    As you see I've been only getting gear but I'm really REALLY confused on what stats should I focus in, because I read a guide and it says full mastery, then I read another and it says full crit or full haste! it's really confusing, can you guys lend me a hand plz, What stats should a starting tanking player like me should focus on.

    Thanks!

    stat priority is actually a question of the type of content you are running

    Mastery is best when you are undergeared or running content that is very difficult for your gear (because mastery acts like effective health under the assumption that you don't have enough health to tank the content)

    Crit overtakes mastery as your dirth of effective health become less of problem, in this case crit translates to greater elusive brew uptime, and is particularly recommended for 10-man raiding content.

    Haste really scales best when you talent ascension, but to be honest ascension is a lazy-man's talent (which is precisely why i talent into Ascension, cause i am super lazy . . .)

    Ascension is superior to the alternaties 99% of the time.

    Go full crit ham and reap the benefits of your 2set.

    Not really. Power Strikes is superior at all relevant levels of haste; Ascension only becomes better when you stack haste, but nobody does that in ToT (or rather, they shouldn't).

    I still use Ascension though, not because it provides more Chi, but because it gives you 5 max chi and a smoother resource income. But strictly speaking, for pure chi gain Power Strikes is better.

    Don't consider Chi Brew until 5.4.

    Not really. 9k + haste is easily attainable in this tier of gear, even if you don't stack it. I stack crit and have everything else go into haste (7.
    5/15 caps) and im sitting at 16.5k crit and 8.5k haste, but thats because Ra-den wont drop the loot he's supposed to since 3 months ago.

    Anyway, going into SoO, I will easily break into the 10k's whilst focusing on crit. So Ascension will become the best for "relevant" raiders, as opposed to the raiders who have ~550 ailvl now.

    Latest patch notes: Fixed a bug that caused the damage of some abilities for Brewmasters with Vengeance to scale incorrectly.

    Any idea what this is in reference to?

    yep i figured that but sometimes i got BAD BAD timing. no teleport rdy, our meele wanted to put out 2 or 3 anima ring orbs but he had that debuff on him and he killed me. so i will try to save my teleport for that kind of situations

    I'm wondering this as well. Hoping it's not a "nerf".

    It also depends on if you do the Zerg strat or not. It relies on high dps from the tanks. I tank two adds and dark animus until the first ring then I soak a ring and pop curb to tank one add. After that I just soak rings myself. Opposite tank tanks 4 adds. Zerg strat just makes easier so you don't have to really plan anything. I normally am only close to dieing while getting into position after that I don't spike a whole lot. Our Zerg strat has us killing it at exactly 2 minutes last week

    Oh well, we tried it yesterday the first time and at pull i take one add with boss, xuen taking the other add. after maybe 30 seconds, our retri takes my add, running to a bigger add, kills is. i take the bigger add while he take the add xuen was tanking. after that i have animus and one bigger add. our dk now swappes adds with me. at the end he has 2 bigger adds while i'm tanking dark animus. BUT the zerg strat sounds awesome. you soak the ring, just walk through 1 bouble? no teleport at all? how many healers u bring?

    im kinda worried about this. i kind of feel like we are sliding backwards a bit. already going to end up with lowered damage and half as useful t15 2 pc from day 1 of 5.4 til we get some gear. im sure we will be fine once we get rolling, but still

    im just kind of losing interest in current content i suppose. im probably worried about nothing....

    Now doing LFG, obviously we got a ton of impatient DPS who just starts mass pulling and whining i am slow but thing is, i simply feel like i will melt with too many mobs.
    Are monks good for big aoe pulls and i am just scared? If so can i have some tips on how to deal with those.
    Note that i never played a tank spec so i am completely new to the whole concept :P
    If it is required I can't post my armory here cause i am too new but its Assirra at Defias Brotherhood.
    Quoting myself since it was on the last post of the page :P
