I normally tank strictly on my prot warrior, but love the mechanics of brewmaster as well. I’ve been crafting this macro for a while, and think it’s in a good spot. Please let me know how this works for you, and if I could improve it. As with my Warrior macros, I will strive to keep this updated and constantly improving.
All major defensive cooldowns should be manually cast.
I’m open to any changes as I’m just getting into mythics on this character and don’t know Monks as well as I’d like to. If you could post a build you’d recommend and any changes, I’ll look into it tonight!
All good my friend, I love the work you did. Appreciate it. It is only a minor change. Especially in higher keys and heroic raids (we are 7/8) Brews need the extra help, maybe Diffuse will become obsolete with the coming changes to magic damage stagger (which is a 9% change all together).
Had to make a few adjustments for personal preference but I really like this so far, just open world stuff, no mythics or anything, just wanted to say I LOVED your prot war build, my first toon through the new xpac was a highmountain prot war and your macro just carried, I was soloing great hunt bosses before I was geared, keep up the great work.
Can you please test this out a bit? I’m happier with the progress with this build and am looking for feedback before I move up in iterations. This might be v. 1.1 if it’s working as well for everyone as it is for me.
lol, well i like it. i do need to stop reading chat while testing it tho. the Tanking dungeon dummy killed me cuz i wasnt paying attention to my HP. dooes really good DPS (i know its not important in a tank lol).
i will update soon as i go find me a rare to pick on.
How does it feel running BrM vs Prot (ofc course using macro). Originally BrM was my top choice this expansion, but if i recall correctly, it was nerfed to the point it was the worse performing tank, out of the choices we have. However with some of the changes coming i want to give it a shot again, not to mention the streamer who brought a BrM with green items in a +20 really peaked my interest. I dont have time to level my monk right now due to classes, just wanted to know your thoughts.
Brew has the most action buttons to actively press in the game. It is based on priorities and not a rotation so it has a quite higher skill ceiling. You are the squishiest tank because we lost a lot of our selfhealing from Shadowlands, we have only minor mitigation for magic damage.
But the playstyle is by far one of the most interesting. ProtWarr is just a nasty immortal bulwark, if you dont mess up, you can hardly be killed in any content.
Monk was my starter in shadowlands, i really loved the stagger mechanic, but sometimes you feel so helpless, it turned me away. Ill try to level my BrM in the next month, atleast ill have something to help test for future patches. I personally dont want to get stuck playing just one tank
