    Monk in M+

    Sup peeps!

    Haven't touched the game since err... 3 or 4 patches ago, played MW/BrM for the most part.

    LoL is getting tiresome (the toxic community is great fun to play with) so i'm back into WoW.

    How, in general, do Monks feel now this current patch? I don't care if we're not meta, but i'd be very happy if we were happily accepted into pugs etc...!

    Arguably dethroned druid as best all around class, so pretty good imo.

    I'm seeing a bunch of them this patch. Lot of the people who played Druids have rolled monks in my guild.
    Me thinks Chromie has a whole lot of splaining to do!

    The game lacks WW monks which is too bad because they are awesome for M+.

    I played BrM up until this patch (no major changes) and I loved it. By far the most fun tank in game imo.

    In what way? Way more Druids in Raids. M+ has way more Resto Dru than MW. More Balance than WW in Keys. Seeing more Guardian Drus than before. Monk has def gotten better this patch, but Druids still looking better in pretty much every aspect.

    All three specs are in a fine place for m+.

    MW is quite strong for raw healing and has a solid toolkit for M+. With Fistweaving viable again, we also bring respectable passive DPS without sacrificing healing. Still lack solid damage reduction CD’s however, but this is only really an issue in Cutting Edge M raids where DR is more important than raw throughput (can’t heal the raid if it’s dead).

    WW brings the same utility as MW to M+ along with the standard Melee interrupt. Rogues are less required now for shroud so that’s helped.

    Don’t play BrM, and our BrM Tank for raids has re-rolled so I haven’t healed one this patch either and can’t say how the nerds effected them.

    All sounds good to me! I heard BrM is rather hard to heal now due to the nerf it took, still strong but requires a little more attention than previous. No dramas, I'm only playing MW.
