I thought I read somewhere that monks cannot use 2 handed maces.

Nope they can't. Staves, polearms, 1H Swords, 1H Maces, and Fist Weapons if I recall.

Yeah. I've been hoping they release that heirloom staff that was data mined.

The main Monk page on http://us.battle.net/wow/en/game/mists-of-pandaria/monk/ doesn't list 2hed maces as a weapon they can use. Is it one of those things where they made it usable in the beta but never updated their website?

Bob: Are you sure they can equip 2H-maces in the Beta? Because http://mop.wowhead.com/spell=106902 does not mention them.

This issue of no Brewmaster heirlooms had been brought up in every Queue comment chain since beta went live. Not to knock the current answer (thank you for addressing it), but can you PLEASE verify that 2H maces do not work in beta?

I can confirm that I mailed my Monk the 2H heirloom mace and he could not equip it. That was the first week of Beta, and of course things change every day. That's why I don't like to confirm Beta info unless I have checked that very day to be sure.

If a monk uses a 1H sword, what's their off-hand?
4-04-2012 @ 1:16PM
By that I mean Agi sword, as recommended by Alex.

Going to be brutally honest. Other than the healer recommendation, that whole answer was terrible. Monks can't use 2h maces, but they CAN use 1h maces, which are a great choice for both hands of a DPS monk.

Hey, one out of three ain't ba... Well, it's not fantastic. As others have said, Mass of McGowan is your best dps bet. Monks don't learn to use swords until level 10 - and even then, the Thrash Blade is a lousy off-hand for obvious reasons.

You're right, no two-handed maces. However, I stand by Dal'Rend's!

@Killik: I was under the impression there were no mailboxes in the Pandaren starting zone (much like the Goblin or Worgen starting zones) anyway, which would mean that you'll pretty much be heirloomless for the first ten levels anyway.
