Brewmaster Monks - Episode 17

Hello, Mobs and Minions, today Final Boss Tv finishes off the Monk class by taking an in depth look at Brewmaster Monks. Bay and Ana talk with Daught from <Midwinter> and Luun from <ScrubBusters> to get a feel for what it’s like tanking as a drunken master.

Starting off, we talk with our guests about what they do outside of playing WoW. Daught is the crazier of the two as he actually raids with two other guilds besides <Midwinter>. The man either loves raiding, or has a problem!

Moving from that, Bay asks our guests when they first started tanking, and then what made them continue tanking. Both situations are oddly similar; because no one else would tank! In a similar vein they are asked what made them switch to Brewmasters from the classes they were originally playing. Each of them felt the class was too good to pass up for their kind of progression and made the switch willingly.

With a new class comes growing pains as we’ve seen with Mistweavers and Windwalkers. Interestingly enough, Brewmasters didn’t need to be changed nearly as much as their counterparts, resulting in a very smooth tanking style. However, as with all classes there are some quality of life tweaks necessary.  Luun goes into what he feels would help the class and takes a (not so) slight jab at Death Knight tanks. Ouch!

After the break, we get into the more technical side of playing a Brewmaster. Daught explains the relationship between Chi and Energy and how it works as a tank, but it’s so simple that Bay is slightly confused that it was quite literally a 1-sentence explanation! Silly Bay. Each guest then takes turns talking about using CDs, timing Guard properly, and explaining how Stagger works. Luun then goes into a very interesting discussion about Brewmaster stats and how they pertain to tanking at that level of progression.

We finish off the show with Tips, Tricks and Secrets for Brewmaster tanks and our viewer Q&A.
