    Yes keeping up shuffle 100% of the time whilst also keeping guard on CD is entirely possible, you can even still purify some times. And it gets better as you get more haste.

    It's not too bad and you shouldn't have to worry about maximizing your Brewmaster performance if you aren't doing progression raiding. Here's a simple priority you can use for 'ok' tanking, which is probably fine for heroic 5 mans:

    Purifying Brew if stagger is yellow or higher (1 chi)
    Guard (2 chi + 30s cooldown)
    Keg Smash->Breath of Fire when it's up (treat them like a combo, and only use them together--skip BoF if the target is immune to Dizzying Haze)
    Blackout Kick (2 chi)
    Expel Harm if > 40 energy
    Jab (single target) or Spinning Crane Kick (aoe) if > 40 energy
    Tiger Palm

    Most of the time you will just be rotating between tiger palm, jab and blackout kick, since everything else has a cooldown.

    Don't forget that Rushing Jade Wind Proc's shuffle, so it's like an AoE Blackout Kick (though with a CD) and then you can spam SCK for +1 Chi and +30% Dmg if you have 3+ targets.

    The four elements, like man alone, are weak. But together they form the strong fifth element: Boron.

    My weakauras shows me when guard is cooling down, warns me when guard is off cooldown but i don't have enough Chi, and makes a specific alarm noise when Gaurd is off cooldown and I do have Chi. I'm still tweeking it though.

    It is more fun than any tanking class I have played, but it really does require you to be skilled. - Kungju - Sargeras

    I was going to name my Monk 'Kungfungus' until I changed my mind at the last second. SOOOOOOO glad I did. Every Monk and his grandma seem to have "Kung" in their names.

    As for Monk tanking, I like it. I think it's more fun than my DK and Pally tanking, about on par with my Warrior tank and a little less fun than my Druid tank. And yes, I do love tanking and I have end game raided on every tank except Monk so far.
