I'm pretty convinced that they will use a method similar to feral druids, where we scale with the DPS/attack power of the weapon, but the weapon speed is meaningless. First, back in vanilla, druids ONLY scaled with agi & str found on the weapon (no bonus damage from the weapon DPS increase at all, no procs or anything). Later in vanilla, druids ran around with "feral attack power" instead of scaling from weapon DPS so that we could hit harder when our weapons hit harder, which Blizzard eventually corrected to now scaling off weapon DPS (but our claws hit the same speed and the weapon DPS just gets factored into scaling with our gear).Given what Blizzard has learned about failed mechanics from feral druids, I would expect the monk to scale with weapon DPS in a similar way that feral druids do.
