Well after having people blame my class etc for my dps as tank/dps specs, and my solo kills (majority of time) being based on `your a dk` i thought i'd try something new, i needed a monk to complete my wow tanks anyway (1 of each tank class).
Long story short i actually like monk tanking, so i'm going to play monk over my dk for a while, atleast for a whole patch.
I'm now lvl 85, trying to get 90 asap, i plan on being a MT in raids but i also want to have fun and do decent solos, such as Firelands and up, i was progressing things like that for fun on my other tanks, and want to continue on my brewmaster and with time playing brewmaster learn some cool tricks.
1. the ox statue, people say it's a aoe taunt, how? when it is down it can shield people, but if i target a level 85 mob and taunt it, does it make my taunt an aoe just like that, or do i target my ox statue and then taunt to make it aoe, or is there no such aoe taunt.
2. Healing tier (30): Chi Wave - Zen Sphere - Chi Burst
Now without experiencing any, i took and have stuck with Zen Sphere, it's a decent (kinda low but decent) HoT + the burst effect crits are nice. I have been whispered (quite angry) that i should get chi wave, apprently even if i was soloing, it would bounce just on myself, whats the deal? does chi wave need party members to bounce heals, or can it just bounce solo on me. Also is chi burst any good?
3. Defensive Tier? (75): Healing Elixirs - Dampen Harm - Diffuse Magic
Is this tier personal choice? i do know i'll be respeccing various times for dampen harm/diffuse magic in a raid fight, however which one should i run on a basic play? i took healing elixirs as it can be quite decent i thought.
4: 90 tiers, havent hit 90, any insight would be appreiciated
5. Stats? i have heard countless things, my idea generally was;
Stam=Agil>hit cap> exp cap> haste> mastery> dodge> parry
Reason for me thinking that, stamina till i feel conformtable with the amount i have then agility as a threat/dps stat, hit and exp to not miss and haste for mass energy regen.
6 (Last one). am i doing this right?
--------- whenever i can't use energy stuff i use tiger palm due to free cost, should i just auto attack at these times? for Elusive brew stacks.
Cheers for any information/comments/help ^^
