I like the fact everyone here still discussing about it like noone could actually believe GC thinks we re fine xD
Making Zen med a good raid cd brings the problems of BrM and MW getting it too.
What I'm saying is that if it's changed to something like Devotion Aura, where all specs have access to it and gives meaning to bringing a monk, no matter the spec, just for the cooldown, then I'm for it.
Sure it would be nice, but as blizz have said they think there is too many raid cds already. MW getting both revival and good raid cd via zen med might be too much.
Once again, GC does simply not understand or is pretending to be an idiot. If we had utility and demanded it to be buffed, this argument would be somewhat valid. But we don't.Originally Posted by Blizzard Entertainment
He has a very valid point when he talks about the cooldown arms race. A better solution than giving Windwalker more utility would be removing excesses of it from other classes, however that kind of change is more suited to expansion overhauls than mid-expansion patches.
if we want utility we just need to spam the shit out of his twitter account. see how they (the devs) talk about "we get many complaints about X and that's why we are changing Y or class X gets cooldown Z", i guess that's how it works nowadays. sad but true.

TeB Stack Generation time for Minimum use.
10 Stacks = 28 seconds
PTR Stats - Haste = Live > Crit > Mastery
15 Stacks = 52 seconds
PTR Stats - Haste = Live > Mastery > Crit
15 Stacks = 40 seconds
What I get from the above post is that with those PTR stats and a Mastery > Crit priority you can obtain around 23% more uptime on a 90% damage buff. At first glance this looks more attractive than that crit rating. I don't think it's worth debating whether the changes are better or worse; they are happening regardless. Should just focus on figuring out how to maximize what we are given.

Updated the numbers for apples to apples sake. We may or may not be using the T15 4pc in the new tier very long, but a buff nonetheless.
Looks like the reverted the change to how we gain stacks from 4 back to 3 on the ptr. With the increase in damage to 6% per stack makes it seem like they are on the right track. That revision was needed 4 chi consumed was to much 3 should be nice.
