"Of note for monks is the removal of the dual Light/Dark Force resource system, replaced with the singular Chi system."Aww, for some reason that got me real depressed. I really liked the light/dark idea. I guess I can see their reasoning, and it's glad to hear that the gameplay is still very compelling at least.

It's no surprised, heck as soon as they mentioned "hey Monk have no auto-attack" I said that was only going to be the first of the announced "features" of Mists to be redacted.Also, its not gonna be long until that "self-damage" aspect of fel embers is removed.

I wasn't too interested in it anyway, so I can't say I'm too surprised they slimmed things down. I can't even level a Death Knight due to their dual resource systems, I'd never be able to get a Monk of the starting zone...

@Devilsei I agree with you, as a healer I see a lot of potential for frustraiting game time with the self damage mechanic (for both warlocks and healers).I think it will be removed or changed.

I wouldn't count on the self-damage going away; destruction warlocks regenerate mana faster than other warlocks, too, so they'll be life-tapping less often. In normal play, I'd expect the self damage to be fairly close, with the advantage that for destruction it's a more even self-inflicted damage than it is for destro and aff.

Regarding the destruction warlocks self damage it is strongly pushing them to take the soul leach and soul link tallents to help reduce level they actually hurt themselves

They could've just went with just Force/Chi. But no.
