WoW Monk Overview

In the 4th expansion pack of World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, a new class is introduced: the Monk class. This class isn't anything quite like the monks comparing to another games. They are known as geomancers, meaning they worship mother earth thus drawing their energy from the earth. WoW monks are warriors which became the beckon of hope for the Pandaren race. Their weaponless martial arts free Pandaren race from slavery. Monk talents are categorized into three talent trees: Brewmaster, Mistweaver, and Windwalker, which are tanker, healer, and melee DPS respectively.

The first monk talent we are going to talk about is the Brewmaster. Due to the variation of effective defensive abilities, this talent tree is designed to absorb damage without denting the life of the character. They are the only ones who are able to use mitigation to help stagger a percentage of damage over time. Also the Brewmaster can cook magical brews that are able to heal those who drink it. WoW monk Brewmaster uses chi as his resource to execute various important skills. Earning chi is done by expending energy through fighting.

Next is the Windwalker talent designated for melee damage. If you like a class that levels quick and possess the ability to unleash high damage, the Windwalker talent is the most fitting. His main resource is energy, which is spent on basic attacks, though note his attacks are continuous to maximize the amount of damage output. Windwalkers can use the same weapons as Brewmasters, such as: dual wielding fist weapons, swords, maces, or the two handed pole arms.

Finally the important healer, the Mistweaver. This class expends chi which is used to heal and remedy fallen allies and also, damage enemies. Instead of an energy bar or chi, the Mistweaver uses mana as a resource to cast magic. They are able to turn damage into healing spells for themselves and their party. Their attacks create chi, which is the same as other specs, allowing him to utilize powerful healing.

Playing as wow monk, you have to keep a couple things in mind. Always remember that monks cannot perform auto attacks similar to the other classes in WoW thus, you are required to initiate any attack by using a skill or ability. If your race is Pandaren, you can't choose your class or faction until you reach level ten. Lastly, Mists of Pandaria is still in beta mode, so gameplay can be altered drastically according to player feedback. Hope you enjoyed this little WoW monk guide, and enjoy the game on Sept. 25th!
