Goblins can be monks and you cannot see their xmog fist weps. Spent days getting the Bladefist for nothing.
I'll never get why they hide fist weapons for monks when they have the glyph.
i don't honestly see a lot of monk hate tbh. . .personally i got to about lvl 15 and just didnt like the feel of the class. i think a large part is that you do have to level from 1 witch i don't mind at all but it seems most people hate leveling so starting completely over doesn't appeal to them.
Maybe because It's Pandaren stylish class.
Monks are fun but they're kind of like a novelty that came along with the expansion, much less so than death knights were in WotLK.
If I didn't have 9 years invested in my Paladin, I'd so change my main to my monk. I finally found a class that's fun to tank on since they fucked up DKs (miss Frost tanking), Warriors (heroic strike was much more fun as an 'on next swing' ability), and Paladins (Holy Power, fucking up shield stats, fucking up Holy Shield. BLERGH). What about druids? I hate playing druids. I have one stuck at 60-something because he's so fucking boring to play.
Anyway, as to the topic specifically, I don't think I've ever seen anyone bitching about monks just because they're monks. People /still/ do that about Derp Death Knights and Huntards Hunters, but not so much about monks. Unless I'm the monk and I'm healing. But that's bitching about /me/ not monks in general.

I cannot send the monk class, and it's a shame because Mistweaver was a nice play style but I still cannot stand the class.
-joke. Yes it is a continuance of the Pandabrewmaster from WC3. So far from the normal monk you find in RPGs is bothersome
-similar. All the specs rely on tiger palm, jab and blackout kick. Why? The core rotation of all the specs have 3 abilities
-brew. I really hate that they can't even keep the brewmaster joke with BREWMASTER. Why the hell are wind walker and mistweaver drinking too?
-tied to panda. I still hate pandas in this game, and the way they made te monk is awful. It's not an unarmed fighter. It's an unarmedpandafighter. I don't want to play a panda I want to play a monk,why is everything tied to the pandas even when it's other races? Tied to celestials? Sure. But all of the crap is with pandas.
It feels forced. The monk they did in Diablo? Good. This monk? Awful. It needs to be a monk, not a panda. For example, tiger palm should be a palm, not a panda palm. Break the connection to Panda with everything. Monks meditate, not drink and stagger.
I haven't personally seen them getting much of a rap (other than for being broken and OP), but if they are I'd imagine it's nothing more than standard FOTM complaints. New class = lots of rerolls = lots of terribads wherever you go.
The most recently added classes always get bad reps. Hunters were the last classes added in vanilla, DK's in wrath, monks now...
If it's not an elf, leave it on the shelf.

I feel the same as Giscoicus. I love monks, and I play monks in every game that have it. I leveled my monk to 90 in 2 weeks, killed the Stone Guardians with my guild in 442ilvl (I was one of the tanks lol), and make him my main for entire expansion. Brewmaster is an excellent spec to play, very fun and enjoyable. But you know, WoW monks arent the same as "original" monks. The D3 monk is a good example of a real "monk", they have the "feeling" of the class... but wow monks, it's kinda meh, more of a joke class... And just because of it i'll level my warrior first in WoD.
I love monks. I'd say it's the best overall class. I've learned one of each spec to a certain extent and high end game as WW.
* Weaponless melee doesn't really appeal to me.
