2. Please record it. With no paladins ofc, and without killing it on little to no time, as we are talking about progression here.
If you are gonna argue "everyone could with a paladin" then yes, WITH A PALADIN. Guess what? Paladins can tank it themselves, and have DS for yet another debuff dropping
3. There is a reason every top parse is done by a paladin, we are not talking about "impossible" but "better"
4. Read 2. With overgearing you could actually do it, provided you survive windstorm tho.
5. 100% physical damage converted to a dot != immune to physical damage. Immune to deaths? Yes, but staying at 1 HP since stagger can't kill you.
Guess your paladins need to up their game?
Also, i'll repeat again, i'm NOT saying monks were not viable. I'm saying that given equal skill and gear paladin > monk. That doesn't mean that monks were not significantly better than everyone else tho.
