This question is probably better for the queue, but here goes: What do you think will happen to monk healers doing the Staghelm fight? During cat phase, he targets people people with range and heal speccs regardless of position. What I think will happen is make them a 'melee' designation rather than neuter the spec during the cat phase.

Seeing how it will be last years content i dont think anyone at Blizzard will care or make any changes to it.

I'm pretty sure that by the time monks come out, every encounter in FL will be considered trivial.

Cmon guys, I think he meant "what are they going to do about that mechanic in general."

I'm assuming that monks will still have heals they can cast at range so that they won't become totally useless in fights where they can't get up-close-and-personal out of necessity of needing to be able to target a specific person and keep them from dieing.

wtf, the monk is obviously a melee class, why would the mechanic of that one fight pretend otherwise?stupid question imo.

That's really the question, though: "Will the monk in healing spec be considered a melee spec by boss mechanics?" And it really depends on what those mechanics turn out to be. If by the end of beta, monks need to be in melee to do their jobs 'right' then they should be.Heck, I'm also interested in what Nefarian's class call for monks will be; I was surprised when they added one for Death Knights, but since they did they'll almost certainly follow it up with monks.

no boobah, thats really not a question at all. the monk is quite obviously a melee class. there is no way consider exception to that.
