    Do you think Monk should recieve a 4th spec that's for Range DPS?

    having energy blasts smiliar to Dragon ball, it would be an interesting take on the Monk spec.

    Seems a bit dumb, but I want it. then again, blizz doesn't seem to want to actually do anything with monks beyond "lolz they's drunks and pandas!".

    and of course if they do, the big dps CD would have to involve a speaker blowing scream that lasts for the entire duration.
    O Flora, of the moon, of the dream. O Little ones, O fleeting will of the ancients. Let the hunter be safe. Let them find comfort. And let this dream, their captor, Foretell a pleasant awakening

    Not until shaman gets a tank spec and rogue gets a tank or heal spec.

    It could work within lore akin to OG dragonball. Bringing back spinning fire blossom as a chi generator (Or spender) and actually making use of crackling jade lighting. Maybe it could also incorperate mist weaving to replicate replacement jutsu or something?

    The main problem with the whole 4th spec thing is, how would you handle leveling through legion?

    What for? It's a class that's entirely melee, hand-to-hand combat fantasy, even in healing spec. It's probably the one that you'd think needs 4th spec the last out of all hybrids.

    We don't need a carbon copy of druids.

    I'd like it, I don't think the game needs any more new classes, but new specs? That would be really good. Tank Shaman/Warlocks, Healing Mages (Time Magic!), Ranged DPS Monks/Paladins, S&B Warrior DPS, those could all be really fun.

    Since Monks representing the ways of the Celestials we should already have a 4th specc, the way of the Serpent.

    I would rather they made the dps and tank spec fun again by reverting back to the way they were in MOP.

    The game needs more classes that can be ranged specs.

    9 classes can do melee dps.
    Only 6 can be ranged.

    I'd love a monk spec that primarily does damage with Jade Lightning-type spells. You could yell 'UNLIMITED.... POWAHH!!!!!' while you fried stuff.
    It took me about a month to figure out that I don't like Shadowlands, like at all - this is the least I've enjoyed WoW since the Cataclysm content drought. And so I am currently unsubbed. But rather than come here and bellyache and kick and scream about it, I'm spending my time/energy on games that I do want to play.

    Actually I would like it and also fits the asian monk archetype.
    But I'm too old to know anything about dragonball, I rather think of

    Monks should have been implemented with four specs because of their own lore. WW = tiger, BM = ox, MW = cloudserpent, ?? = crane. Instead, Blizz has just baked parts of each of the celestials into every spec.

    With how far removed we are from MoP lore now and the missed opportunity with the massive revamps prior to Legion, I doubt we will ever see this done.

    Monk should have a ranged spec based around Crackling Jade Lightning and dots. Jade Whirlwind would be the aoe. Using jadefire spells to burn their enemy, building up Chi, then unleashing it all in a powerful CJL.
    If what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. Then I should be a god by now.

    But why though, adding new specs/ classes 'just cause' is how you make shit specs/ classes

    nope. A pew pew spec and paired with Kung Fu/ drunken dude feels weird

    I'd love a Monk Ranged Spec that was Targeted attacks rather than click and fire. Like Chi Burst, you actually have to aim your Character correctly to hit things as opposed to say Frostbolt which you just choose a target and cast.

    That and I'd love to get my Kamehameha on.

    As though closing the gap on a monk isn't bad enough as is, let's make it even harder by allowing them to use powerful ranged attacks. I think it would be pretty interesting, but they would need to make some serious changes to their mobility.

    Yes please, I wanted this ever since monks were introduced.

    No. If they're going to add another 4th spec it should be for a class that the majority of people actually like.
