Am I the only one who's wondering about all monk tanks being brewmasters? Pandaren and dwarves having brewmasters makes sense. But, given that a book in the DK start zone says alcohol isn't the same for undead, what do forsaken brewmasters brew? (Are they honorary members of the RAS?) Do draenei even drink alcohol?

A) The alchohol's not a cultural thing, at least not a racial culture thing. It's a monk culture thing, since Pandaren monks trained all the others.B) It's also not as if we don't have booze already in game. Man, for someone their size you'd think Tauren could hold their liquor better.

Also, they wont neccesarily be drunk but rather mimic someone who is to be more evasive.

Draenei do participate in Brewfest, they have a whole little area set up during the holiday that the Draenei in Exodar visit.I see no issue with Draenei and beer. We have the Western European monks to thank for beer being well developed as it is now, they even discovered hops. I picture the Panadaren Monks pretty much being a merging of both real world monk types. The fighting skills from the ones from China, and the brewing abilities from the monks from Belgium. Draenei actually make one of the better fits for being Monks, as they follow an extensive, organized religion, which can support monasteries to give Monks places to live.

I also saw some quote somewhere, and this seemed like early speculation by some devs, that some races might have different sorts of monks. Which would make a lot of sense. Not all races should have the same thing, when they have such long and storied histories.That being said, I have a feeling they'll get the Blood Knight/Sunwalker treatment, which is that they have "different sorts of monks" where what that actually means is that we call them different things but they all have the same spells.
