    Brewmaster help please critique my build


    The above is a partial link to my current armory page. I cannot post a full link at this time

    I am just getting in to tanking lfr. I have no problems with heroics. I am in the process of building a raid team and plan to hit MSV soon. I have read through many brewmaster forums and am a little confused as to where the monk tank community is at currently with expertise cap. Currently as you can see from my build I am headed towards the hard cap of 15%.

    Any and all advice is welcome. Thank you

    It's hard to give advice to fellow Brewmasters for the simple fact that much of our playstyle comes from personal preference.

    If you absolutely hate getting parried/dodged, then go with 15% expertise cap. (Myself, I stick with 7.5% and have no problems)

    I will say this. You can safely vendor the quest boots from Sha. The ilvl 463 boots from heroics(http://www.wowhead.com/item=81249) are much, much better.
    Human decency is not derived from religion. It precedes it.

    5.1 really muddied the waters on a lot of theory crafting for BrM. Since your not doing anything wrong from a gear perspective you'll want to post some logs. Right now we basically have two choices so I would suggest experimenting with both.

    1) 7.5% vs 15% expertise.
    2) Power Strikes vs Ascension

    To complicate things both of the above choices also inter-relate with each other quite a bit. I'd suggest trying out each combo and seeing which performs best for you. Just as a guess since you are pushing 15% expertise you may find Power Strikes superior since you don't have much spare rating to throw around which is the main benefit Ascension provides.

    My own personal suggestion is 7.5% expertise + Power Strikes initially then looking at 15% expertise and/or Ascension as you gear up. Just my personal opinion from my own gearing experience, others may disagree.

    I never ended up needing Stam/Mastery for anything I've done so far (I used the stam meta but switched to agil before I even cleared Elegon/Will). So once your happy with your energy regen I'd suggest your extra rating goes into Crit (which is a big part of what Ascension will let you do).

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

    I hope this is okay to add my own request for advice or tips as well. If not I apologize and will make my own thread.

    Note please ignore the fact that my chest and shoulders aren't gemmed and enchanted as I just got them last night, thanks!
