Apr 4th 2012 2:43PM How very disappointing. Main'd as Shadow this year as my guild was full up on tanks, now I'm glad for two things: that I experienced the best damn Shadow patch in the game's history, and that I've picked ther perfect time to focus on a new main (Brewmaster).
Talk about oversimplifying a simple class. "Three DoTs and orb management are hard!" ...in any case there's better be some changes and surprises in store. I will concede, at least, that there are more options now than ever for playing Shadow as an effective support class. I'm just not interested in sacrificing everything that made Shadow so much DoT-juggling, Tarecgosa-weilding, Mega-MBlast-Crit fun, if that's the price to pay for our return to "utility". I'm already a GM and RL, if I wanted to be any more supportive I'd take a healing role in the first place. *shudder*
Apr 4th 2012 12:00PM 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?
Mar 31st 2012 12:22PM Any confirmation yet of an Agi heirloom staff, and/or fist weps?
Mar 27th 2012 11:44AM Heirloom Agi Staff incoming for Brewmasters and Guardians?
Mar 26th 2012 2:46PM Great article as usual, thank you!
Elitism for Everyone (L25, H-Chromaggus-US) offers all of the above. If you're looking for the real deal, visit us @ e4e.guildomatic.com!
Mar 23rd 2012 9:07PM Brewmaster Monks (at least, originally) were said to focus on staves specifically, while melee were designed with DW/2h weapons in mind. I was referring to a particular item on the MMO-C database (http://www.wowdb.com/items/79131-temporary-heirloom-monk-staff-name) the "Temporary Heirloom Monk Staff Name". The temporary either means its name will be changed later, or that the staff itself is a temporary item used only in the beta. Since I plan to theme my Monk as a Drunken Master Tank, it would be ideal to have access to an Heirloom weapon that fits both the requirements and theme of the toon.
Mar 23rd 2012 4:40PM Q4tQ: Are the (1 or 2) Monk-focused Heirloom Staves available in-game? Are there any other Monk-focused Heirlooms available? What is the cost/currency for these Heirloom weapons?
Mar 21st 2012 9:02AM Rolling a Pandaren Monk and taking it as far as I can, to determine whether to main a Troll Monk in Cataclysm.

Mar 20th 2012 11:48AM This was the ONLY thing I cared about hearing, the "bold"new plans to solve the population problem. I was thoroughly disappointed with the rehash of BlizzCon. Talk about too much hype.
