This week Monks received the idea of a new iteration of Storm, Earth, and Fire, and the general area-of-effect (AoE) abilities for Windwalker.
Thrown into the hype of Legion, who could neglect the questions about the artifact weapons?
Obvious spoiler warning goes right here -- if you don't want to know what happens to Mistweaver Monks in Legion, I don't recommend reading this post.
Legion's left a mixed bag of feelings thus far for those of us that have stuck with Windwalker since its inception in Mists of Pandaria.
First: a disclaimer.
In the lull before Legion, the class hasn't undergone terrible many iterations.
When the Monk Legion class preview debuted, probably the first concern -- and rightly so -- voiced by Mistweavers questioned whether the specialization would become too similar to other healers.
It's that time of year again.
The Monk class was born out of rebellion, pragmatism, and balance.
With the new information on Alpha changes to the Windwalker toolkit, many Monks seem extremely concerned about whether or not Windwalker will completely lose its skillcap.
The datamining teams have already started digging into spell changes for the upcoming beta for Legion, including a look at what's in store for Monks. Moving forward with this post keep at the front of your mind that this is an extremely early view.
Some of us are happy.
Monks are up next on Blizzard's class change preview rotation, and we're seeing a major shakeup for all three specs in Legion.
Not terribly long ago, I wrote a post discussing how Crane Stance healing -- fistweaving -- makes Mistweaver Monks who they really are and differentiates them from other healers.
Sitting in the audience of the opening ceremonies for BlizzCon 2011, I found myself absolutely mesmerized by the idea of the Monk class to be introduced in Mists of Pandaria.
You've pulled this encounter for the upteenth time now.
