Since I already had every class at 85 before my guild decided to do Herald, I'm now gearing up a Monk to tank for it. What thoughts do you all have on how I should be gearing? I know the level 90 stat priorities, but I'm not sure if they still hold true at 80. I know traditional Herald thinking is to stack Mastery for most classes, but since it's so weak for Brewmasters I'm thinking that's a poor choice. Are there any key abilities that I won't have that will change my stat weights at all?
One thing I haven't found information on is, how important is weapon speed when choosing them? There are some faster Agility weapons available to me, but I don't want to use them if it will hurt my damage.
Thanks for any input/help.
