Staggering the Brewmaster

Ah the Brewmaster. Drunken fighter of the monk class. Nothing like getting totally wasted and picking a fight you probably can't handle on your own. You start brawls and take a beating but you don't even feel it until later. Nothing seems to phase you. Let's take a look at what the Brewmaster can do.

Unraveling the Mistweaver

I'm going to begin looking at the monk specs by checking out the Mistweaver. The healing spec of the Monk class the Mistweaver has a lot of new unique abilities that look like a lot of fun. Bouncing waves of damage/healing around the field, dropping healing orbs, and surrounding allies in a mist that heals those around it and moves each time it heals. All at the same time generating Chi by Jabbing your enemies. So let's explore the Mistweaver.

Information Dump

screen-cap from:
So this is just going to be a simple "here is everything" post. This will just be everything they dropped on us for the monks. There was of course a TON of news, every current ability and talent, as well as a few changes. Key things like each race might have a different animation for the same attacks, such that Jab on the human above, would look different compared to the Jab of the blood elf behind him. So come on through to the other side (of the jump) to get a read on all the information.

I spent much of the morning reading over everything monk, gathering materials and starting to piece together ability/talent interactions. There's lots of new stuff out there. has a very nice layout. has a ton of stuff as well, and don't forget the folks over at and their news feeds.

Coverage and speculation incoming soon!

Weaving the Mists of Vitality

Picture Courtesy
I was trying to figure out just what I could use to symbolize the way a monk would be a Mistweaver and instill life in their allies when it struck me like one of those V8 commercials. You know the ones, the person slaps themselves hard in the head and goes "coulda had a V8!". Yeah, "DUH" Sin, Final Fantasy 7's own Lifestream fits so perfectly. Well on to the topic at hand. I wrote this almost 2 months ago in a thread on MMO-Champion and just never got around to bringing it here. It was a sudden epiphany about how monk healing could work and I just wanted to share my thoughts on it after this here break. (That I just figured out how to do >.<)

It's Evolution (of stats)

~ Crabby pic courtesy
It was dropped into the Dev Watercooler last night from Ghostcrawler himself that there are a few stats going through some significant changes for Mists. The full repercussions of which, or if they even go through, are of course unknown until we can get our hands on them. The stats we're looking at are Spell Resistance, Hit/Expertise, Block, Criticals and Resilience. So without further ado, the stat changes.
