This forum is here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss all aspects of World of Warcraft with your fellow players. Community forums work best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy. Therefore, we ask that you take the time to read through the forum Code of Conduct before posting. Search The new search function at the top of the World of Warcraft community site is extremely robust. Please be sure to use it to look for similar topics, blog posts, or web pages that may contain the answer before creating your forum topic. Making a new thread on an existing subject will likely result in your thread being deleted. If you continue to repost it you're likely to have your posting privileges suspended for spamming. Worst of all, you'll be making the other forum goers upset that you didn't take a minute to search before posting.

By hovering over a post you'll be presented with a thumbs up, and a thumbs down icon. Clicking the 'thumbs down' icon you can choose from a few options. Dislike will rate the comment down. If enough people dislike a post it will be darkened, or with a lot of dislikes it will be hidden. You can also quickly report a post as trolling or spam, or use the report function to fill out a more comprehensive description of the violation. You can only rate each post once. Use it wisely to help foster a positive and helpful forum community. Guidelines In addition to the Forum Code of Conduct (, here are some common courtesy guidelines to follow to ensure these forums remain a constructive and friendly gathering place for the community.

Both are considered trolling and will lead to a suspension.Takralus2 14 Feb 2014
1h Therapy Lounge for Healers - The Legion Edition! On the 14th of March 2012 Valonia made the longest running topics on our beloved Healing boards. I don't think anyone could have imagined that at the present day, this topic would still be active. And since I can't decribe it better then Valonia did, I'm shamelessly going to copy / paste her welcome post as it describes the Lounge perfectly. ... Ladies and gentleman! I bid thee welcome to the new Therapy Lounge for Healers - The Legion Edition! Lets keep this awesome place going, and see how far we'll get this time :D.

19 Apr [Guide] Brewmaster - Get rolling with the Brews Introduction I decided to make this guide to help those who want to play Brewmaster in legion and bring more clarity to the spec. What will this guide include? -A quick understanding how abilities synergize and how they function. -How to appropriately gear up your Brewmaster so you don't feel like a wet sponge. - Make you understand how each stat benefits the BrM so you can build around it to suit your play-style. -Bring you closer to enlightenment to how amazing and complex this spec is. Abilities and Core Mechanics Brewmaster is a leather wearing tank that specializes in dodging and delaying damage through a mechanic called Stagger. With the use of brews Brewmaster are able to delay more damage into stagger and get rid of a percentage of damage currently in stagger. With the use of of certain abilities Brewmasters are able to reduce the time needed for a brew to ready again. The Brews Our core abilities here are IronSkin Brew which delays a further 40% of damage taken into stagger and Purifying Brew that clears 50% of damage currently in stagger. These two abilities share charges with each other and is important to learn how to balance the use of these respective brews. Fortifying Brew gives you a buff for 15 sec, increasing your current and maximum health by 20%, increasing the damage you delay with Stagger by an additional 20%, and reducing all damage you take by 20% and is our major defensive ability on a 7 min CD Talented- Black Ox Brew: When used instantly refills your Energy, and restores your Ironskin Brew and Purifying Brew charges. It has a 90 second CD Abilities that shorten the CDs of your Brews Like any Drunk fighter trying get more brews, you obviously Keg Smash and Tiger Palm anything in your way for more delicious brews, YUM! Keg Smash dealing damage to all enemies within 8 yds and reducing their movement speed by 50% for 15 sec and reduces the remaining cooldown on your Brews by 4 sec. Tiger Palm: Damages the target and reduces the remaining cooldown on your Brews by 1 sec. The section above named "The Brews" is all the cooldowns that are affected by Keg Smash and Tiger Palm. So with perfect play you could reduce the cooldown of Fortifying Brew down to 3.5 minutes which is half of its original time. This synergy between Keg Smash , Tiger Palm and Brews is the core mechanic of Brewmasters Core Passive Abilities Stagger: delaying 40% of Physical damage and turning it into stagger and taking that damage over the next 10 sec. Affects magical attacks at half effectiveness. This is mechanic is what the Brewmasters is built around and with the talent High tolerance we can increase from this from 40% to 50% Stagger. Our Mastery is: Elusive Brawler grants a stacking dodge chance increase each time you are hit by an attack until you dodge an attack, and also passively increase attack power. This is one of our best average physical damage reduction abilities and should not be ignored. Celestial Fortune: You have a chance equal to your critical strike chance to be healed for an additional 65% of the amount healed. This affects your healing and healing done onto you by a healer. This also works for Absorbs. Gift of the Ox: When you take damage equal to your maximum health , you summon a Healing Sphere visible only to you. Moving through this Healing Sphere heals you for (750% of Attack power). Damage is this statement refers to damage taken before absorbs and stagger. ( DR reduces damage taken before absorbs/stagger i.e 100dmg, 20%DR =80 dmg which is used to calculated GotO) The ability Expel Harm collects all of your Healing Spheres, and damages the nearest enemy for 10% of the amount healed. Which is a nice ability if you don't want to move around to collect your healing spheres.Swifthorn97 19 Apr
11 Mar [Guide] Windwalker PvE - 7.2.x Guide Windwalker 7.1 Legion PvE First of all, this basic guide is primarily made for raiding. Talent and Legendary choices can vary depending on your activity (raiding, pvping mythic+ , etc) If you want a more in-depth guide or other more detailed stuff check out ! 1) General information about the Windwalker 2) Stats 3) Talents 4) Artifact Weapon 5) Builds 5.1) Offensive Cooldowns 6) Playstyle 7) Defensive Cooldowns 8) Legendaries 9) Addons 10) Consumeables and Item Enhancements 10.1) Gems 10.2) Enchants 10.3) Potions 10.4) Food 10.5) Flasks 1) General information The Windwalker Monk is an Energy and Chi based highly mobile melee, that has incredible abilities to do high burst in both type of encounters : Singletarget and AoE! Cooldown and Energy management is deciding your „skill“ level. 2) Stats Agility>Mastery>Critical Strike>Versatility>Haste Agility is still alot better than any other stat so you will most likely go for most ilvl It is the best if you sim yout weights to be completely sure whats your best stat! 3) Talents 15: Chi Wave: (40yd range, 15s cd) does a decent amount of damage but most important about this choice is that it does reset HIT COMBO (90 Talent) 30: Tiger’s Lust: (20yd range, 30s cd) increases a friendly target’s movement speed by 70% for 6s and removes all roots and snares. I really like this choice since you can remove some damaging debuffs with it but any choice here is fine since ist personal preferance! 45: Energizing Elixir: (1min cd) instantly refilling all of your Energy and Chi 60: Leg Sweep: (45s cd) stuns all enemies in a 5yd circle around you for 5s 75: Healing Elixir: (30s recharge, 2charges) heals you for 15% of your maximum health, triggers automatically if you drop below 35% health Also a preference choice depending on the encounter but overall this is probably the best choice since it is always usefull. 75: Dampen Harm (1.5m CD) Reduces damage taken by 20%-50% for 10s. Depending on incoming attack. 90: Hit Combo: (passive) each sucessive strike, that triggers your mastery in a row grants 2% increased damage for 8s, stacking up to 8 times (16% dmg increase) 90: RJW: (1Chi, AoE) : Does AoE damage over time, applies Spinning Crane Kick stacks to 4targets hit 90: Xuen (3min cd) Summons Xuen which does high damage to up to 3 targets at once, lasts 45s 100:Whirling Dragon Punch (Same CD as FoF) Does good AoE and ST damage, can only be used when RSK and FoF are on cooldown 4) Artifact Weapon You want to skill your weapon counter-clockwise since it offers the best minor traits. When you hit the 3rd golden trait (Crosswinds) you can get Good Karma which helps alot with your defense in every situation since it buffs your Touch of Karma. With the new traits you want to get the new golden first, then FoF>RSK Traits in relics: #1 Fists oft he Wind (5% Fists of Fury damage) #2 Rising Winds (5% Rising Sun Kick damage) Fist damage is only better for cleave fights compared to RSK, but i would still stick with alteast 2 FoF relics and maybe 1 RSK relic in your weapon. 5) Builds At the moment there is 1 viable build which are Storm, Earth, and Fire : high burst AoE, high singletarget , but offers really good sustained AoE 5.1) Offensive Cooldowns Serenity or Storm, Earth, and Fire (both 1.5min cd, you want to use SeF on pull, and to every ToD) Touch of Death( 2min cd, also on cd) 6) Playstyle First rule : never use an ability twice in succession since you will lose the damage increase of your mastery AND drop Hit Combo which is an even bigger damage loss! Opener with Serenity : You want to use this macro (you need to have 2Cho and no GCD for it to work!) #showtooltip Serenity /cast Serenity /cast Rising Sun KickTP->ToD-Macro->RSK->SotW-RSK-BoK-SCK-RSK->BoK-SCK-RSK->BoK->SCK->FoF !ADVANCED! DOES ONLY WORK WITH BL TP->ToD->Serenity Macro (RSK) -> SotW -> RSK -> FOF -> RSK (cancels FoF) -> BoK -> SCK -> RSK -> BoK -> SCK -> RSKWajoba38 11 Mar

1h BrM Trinket Choice - Need Help Hey Everyone, since simming Tank Trinkets is usually impractical I wanted to ask for your help for my trinket choice, since I am unsure which ones to use. The trinkets I currently have available are the following: Darkmoon Deck: Immortality ilvl 875 Unstable Arcanocrystal ilvl 860 (with Leech) Infernal Contract ilvl 895 Talisman of the Cragshaper ilvl 890 Fang of Tichondrius ilvl 890 Until now I always used the Arcanocrystal as a default since it is so overbudgeted, but the ilvl gap ist starting to get quite big. The second slot was usually the Darkmoon Deck in physical heavy fights and the Contract in Magic Damage fights or when i needed an extra cooldown. In easier content i also use the Fang for the extra Agility and Leech, which is quite powerful in aoe scenarios. I just recently got the Talisman and was wondering where it does fit in for a Brewmaster. Any help woulöd be greatly appreciated. So LongPàco3 1h

19h Is Chi Orbit any good? Is this Talent at least superior for AOE fights or why noone takes it? Just because of annoying visual effect spinning around your head or Serenity and/or WDP are both that much better in terms of single target and aoe dmg? Also it looks like that Chi Orbit doesn't hit out of combat? Is this intended?Tul4 19h
19h I love monks but I don't like any of their specs. WW feels for me bad because I must press all the time different skills because of his mastery. And most of times I end up having nothing to press. BrM feels for me so spiky because of his stagger and his NO cd gameplay. I mean when I play with my prot warrior I open block and ignore pain and I hold anything but as Monk hmmmmmm... MW, I love MW but I can't play with him because of his low aoe heals and his spell mana cost. I play with Dudu and shaman and in hard situations I open my cds and I keep anyone alive but as monk I open mana tea and spam vivify but is heal is so low I do know that I suck. But since I can play almost all classes why I can't play the class which I love his fantasy, you know Monks who live in harmony and doing martial arts.!! Plus I rarely see Monks in M+ no matter which spec we need. Shall I face it that I won't play with this class and leave it or....?Senpåi17 19h

1d [PVP] Mistweaver - AMA or SoM I know monks are not great and all, but what would you say is best between SoM and AMA? I been trying AMA and the throughput is insane, but the mana consumption is twice as insane. With SoM you have a harder time keeping people up, but save a lot more mana. Plus on SoM your statue can still heal when you stop casting SM, but with AMA your statue stops casting SM when you do. Really tough choice. Edit: Also posted this in an arena topic, but thought I might get more feedback here.Mandemz4 1d
2d Erm...PvP? So after finished a BG i left with my eyes open and a bit of a ''wtf'' moment. The teamplay is as it always has been, some ppl are good, some bad and some just decent or amazing. Warriors and hunters hitting like trucks... But there is just this one thing bothering me as Winwalker monk - Where's is my damage? My windlord strike hits for max 5% of ppl health in damage without em having any buffs...and Fists of Fury should be renamed Tickling Fists as it practically has no effect on the health bar. Can someone please tell me if this is actually for real? I used to love PvP pre-Legion, but good god, the current PvP needs a total rewamp. Not even gonna mention the templates...i mean..12% mastery/crit...seriously? Is it by any chance the same at 110?Yimbo40 2d
2d MW Monks desperately need a second look Hey there all, This thread is mainly for visibility. I realize it may come off as cross-linking, but with all the Mage, DK and such threads about how "the world is ending my top tier class is somehow being nerfed!" I believe reminder posts of this sort are a necessity in order to direct attention to actual constructive feedback. With that out of the way, let's get to the meat of the topic - Mistweaver Monks really, really need a few more pairs of Dev eyes on them before 7.1.5 releases and it's too late to make big changes before Nighthold. First off - our lack of representation in top-tier raiding and our general status as "one of the last played specs" should already give you an idea that there may be a problem to address. But, I digress, maybe everyone just hates being Zen, drinking tea and the color green so is viability really the culprit? Well, since Sims are discouraged when it comes to presenting numbers, let's look at a log statistic instead: As you can see, one of our leading issues is that we, much akin to Windwalkers, scale awfully with gear. Being a spec that absolutely hates Haste and Mastery (stats very prevalent on Raid gear and spec-specific legendaries) and instead completely relies on Versa/Crit for raid numbers should already send up some red flags and imply that the former are probably undertuned. We started out as about equal to other healers during EN, but, as time went on, our numbers have barely moved up while others have gained significant and meaningful increases from higher ilvls. And that's not the whole issue - even barring bad stat scaling - let's say that Versa/Crit isn't often found in Raids, so maybe we just don't have the gear, although most of us have ran hundreds of M+ to get it and the results are the same - our spec has multitudes of in-built flaws. I won't go into too much detail as one of the posts I linked below does that much better than I could, but here's a tl;dr: We have 0 raid utility - even our melee interrupt was pruned. Our Raid CD is laughably weak, a Golden Trait is REQUIRED to make it come close to even being recognized as a cooldown. Our Artifact Ability has 0 synergy with our spec or traits and is too restrictive to ever be useful - accumulate charges over 2 min, apply a 2 sec cast to increase its effect, cast another 2 sec cast and have 3 million healing go into overheal because everyone else doesn't rely on a 4 second cast time combo to pick up a target. Our mana costs are insanely high - Soothing Mist is the culprit here and, at this point, a lot of us are fine with it getting completely removed so that it can stop being used as an excuse for having inefficient spells. Having an abhorrently inefficient "fistweaving" talent as our only way of returning mana only further contributes to this issue. As someone said in another thread "at this mana cost, these spells should still be generating Chi". We have no real instant cast healing - this might come off as pretentious, but the problem is two-fold. Having no instants both means that: 1. we're close to (barring using a Thunder Focus Tea inefficiently) useless while moving, something that is odd for a class with this much mobility and 2. we can't pick-up/emergency heal a low % target - our best bet is doing the aforementioned 4 sec cast combo which requires buildup and is usually too slow We have very close to 0 choices when picking talents. Many specs share this problem, but not to the extent that we do. It's even more saddening when our actual popular talent choice usually isn't even strong - it just sucks the least. That's some of our issues in a nutshell - if you'd like to read some more detailed feedback regarding our problems, check here: (for general issues) and here (for our bad stat scaling) (cont)Chàgataí189 2d

3d Some basic WW WA's Hey to all my fellow Windwalkers, here are some WW WA's that you could find useful (will do more in the future/upgrade some, if there are wishes let me know!) You might need to adjust the width and length ! 1) Elemtal Foci proccs + SEF/Serenity Uptime + Legendary Chest stack count´ 2) Different Cooldown trackers (ToD, RSK SOTW etc etc) 3d
3d Nerf of Ironskin Brew goes live? At the moment, Ironskin Brew only increases stagger by 35% instead of 40% (just check any raid fights after 11.05 in or test it with Training Dummy). In principle, this nerf should go live with the release of 7.2.5 and other compensations. Is this change intended or not? I couldn't find anything in hotfix or blue posts.Nanomeng4 3d
4d MW monks in PVE Just to put my below comments into context i main MW and have done since the start of legion, im currently 9/10 mythic with multiple kills on these bosses as well. currently i have anywhere from 907 equipped - 912 equipped when i play and i have received a lot of 75%+ rankings including some rank 1's At the moment its hard to play as a Mistweaver as while we received a defensive cd in 7.2 (which was amazing and very needed) we still have no raid utility, revival is only hitting for like 500k non crit without the blessing golden trait, if you include this about 650k which when dps have 3.8mil - 4.2mil hp and Bear's have 8mil hp isnt really a big deal. aside from that we have nothing to give the raid. we have no ability to reduce the damage people take our only cd we can give people is cacoon which when compared to sac, Ironbark, Guardian spirit, Pain sup and even disc priest bubble its pretty bad. to go with no utility we also get out preformed hps wise by druids, paladins, holy priests and most of the time disc priests (depending on setup) This post was never to compare 1 healer to another it was just to point out that MW have little to no raid utility while still being low on the hps meters. i wouldn't mind having low raid utility if i was out healing most classes but i don't. i also don't mind being bottom of the healing table if i have good raid utility like a resto shaman. Monk have neither top healing nor top utility. Holy priest, Holy paladins and resto druid have better utility and hps than MW monk at the moment. Shamans usually have lower hps but have way higher utility. i'm not here to say MW need a massive buff or anything all i want to say is maybe a change to Cacoon could really help us. instead of it giving a shield why not make it reduce damage by 15% and put our hots on the target or let it keep the shield but not add our dots and reduce damage by 10% or something as this would make us more viable in high end raiding progression.Knockoutkick12 4d

5d WW Changes PTR 16.5.2017 ... Yeah we really got nothing. Thanks Blizzard ! I mean the now 18 Pages NA Thread seems not enough feedback... At lest they fixed the T20 4P. As Info the Tornado Kick crits also reduce the duration of the FoF CD by 2 seconds. With Serenity and DHC that opens the possibility of FoF>RSK>Sotw>BoK>RSK>FoF in 1 Serenity window with the T19 2P at least. Both RSK benefit from the +50% crit chance. Its even possible without the T19 2P. You then go FoF>RSK>Sotw>BoK>(here it depends if you got 0, 1, or 2 crits from RSK and Tornadokick) You could go FoF again or you could go FoF>RSK>Sotw>BoK>SCK>RSK>FoF all in 1 Serenity window, but only possible with DHC. Here the 2nd RSK should also still benefit from the +50% crit but its a pretty tight timing. Noteworthy: I dont have a clue to be honest about the T19 nerf they mentioned. Some said they are already implemented but for WW for example the Stats and the Boni are still the same.Partial8 5d

15 May BM changes in 7.2.5 Hi guys! Just wanted to ask You, what are Your thoughts about BM monk changes in 7.2.5? :)Liao3 15 May
14 May MW stat priority /bis ? any experienced mw players here, who knows what the stat priority is for mw pve is ? raids / mythics whats the bis what stat that comes first and second etc, versa,crit , mastery ? it seems that i do alot less hps than i should be able to, more crappy geared players can outheal me at times. it goes abit up and down probably depending on what i do ,how much to heal etc, up to like 700k in a rare occasion, but more often 300k or under. 400-500 is if i'm very lucky ,really I've probably said more , or repeat myself more than necessary so i apologize for that, but if anyone reads and knows anything about this, feel free to leave a post. Thank you.Lyrano2 14 May
13 May CoF is WW's best trinket? According to warcraftlogs data, and sims, the top trinkets for a lot of mythic bosses is actually CoF. This occurs on fights that don't last 7.20+ either (this is how long it takes for 1 extra charge of SEF/Serenity) On peakofserenity, sims showed arcanogolem digit better for example, btu I think CoF may be better if it allows you to sneak in an extra serenity/SEF before the fight ends. Without it you may miss a charge if the boss dies too quickly for example So on most bosses, the best combination is CoF+ Foci, regardless of if you take serenity or not. Secdondly, i've simmed characters parsing well using a lower level CoF over Arcanogolem digit, and CoF is still simming higher than the arcanogolem digit. (905 CoF, single target, 788k sim dps) (915 arcanogolem, single target, 780k sim dps) So in short- CoF may well be our best trinket currently regardless of talent, even on spellblade, and tich, where there are consistent adds, CoF is better in most situationsMonkmode0 13 May

12 May What exactly is wrong with WW? It doesn't seem all that bad to me damage wise, which is where I hear most of the complaints are. Is it just simply that there's no point being a WW when you can be a DK, Warr or DH and do the same job, but easier/better?Mileyycyrus19 12 May
11 May WW monk gameplay While i used to main a WW in Warlords just because it was cool and deadly with a high skill cap, and the Legion version is completely different, not my favorite, but good nonetheless. But im trying to figure out how the whole rotation works regardless of situation. From what i understand the current design is based on constantly using different abilities, never using same ability twice i guess? That is where the issue arises in combination with the insane cost of Tiger palm, i am both chi and energy starved most of the time and so often i have to wait for energy to use TP as i cannot use anything else. So how does the whole rotation work in 110 content? Because as of now it feels quite clunky where as Windwalker by concept should have a very fast paced combat no? Cheers. :)Yimbo5 11 May

08 May Champion fury I levelled up and started the legion end game about a month ago. I'm running at 894 ilvl, and can comfortably heal Nighthold. I've got a setup that allows flexibility with legendaries according to questing, HC's or raids. So why the f*** have I still got Champions that are nowhere near top level [900] gear yet? Half of them are maxed out for XP, and have slots available for kit, but there's nothing useful to given them. On other characters they are happily running around doing the new quests at 100%, here I can't even make a dint on the -100% success chance with my best characters. My combat ally is maxed out with a Fruitful Bauble and Draught of Courage, nothing of more value has dropped in a month of sending them on quests. Blizz, if you didn't want us to use Champions then please just say so. This starvation of gear makes people not to want to use champions, and to avoid the character so you can't see just how bad it is! Seriously, get rid of the crappy Pilgrimage and let us buy our items like [almost] everyone else.Pandaharr0 08 May

07 May Utility legendary conspiracy? Today I got legendary boots and now I have every MW + Velen legendary. What are the odds that I didn't got Prydaz or Sephuz? Maybe Blizzard nerfed probabilities of utility legendary for some specs? And now I need a good replacement chest to use the boots. Maybe relinquished tokens. 895 from NL looses bit to much...Bigkeg4 07 May

03 May Are MW Monks underpowered now? So i decided to level up a new monk on a different faction after not playing them since the end of MoP, I have full looms and im unable to heal dungeon partys at lvl 50 yet on any other healer i have around this level i can breeze through any dungeons. Ive leveled up pretty much every healer before and i have never had this problem, Ive also noticed that my mana consumption is huge compared to other healers, So is this normal? Will it get stronger at endgame or are MW Monks garbage now?Zaryá9 03 May
02 May [PVP] 7.2.5 FoF Talent Change This was posted on It looks like they reverted the stun nerf on FoF but removed the 5yd increase.... thoughts? PvP Talents Heavy-Handed Strikes Your first strike of Fists of Fury knocks targets to the ground, stunning them for 3 sec. Fists of Fury has a 5 yard increased range 4 sec. UNDERLINED = REMOVED BOLD = NEW EDIT: The 5 yard increase is going to be baselineMystzy2 02 May
02 May MW in (lowlevel) dungeons Hello, i've been playing some MW lately and I think it is quite fun, but I feel like I'm not healing alot. I've healed alot of lowlevel dungeons with other classes before (shaman, druid) and with those classes I didn't have much problems with keeping people alive. But with monk I feel like there isn't alot of "burst" healing (like swiftmend for druids and serenity for holy priest), so it can be hard sometimes to save people from dying when they are low and Life cocoon is on cd. I haven't really checked all the spells and talents yet, is there a larger heal spell you get later on? I am worried that it will be even harder in higher levels. Or maybe MW is just hard in lower dungeons compared to other healers? Tips and help would be appreciated :)Ronni12 02 May
02 May MW 2-Set Bonus? (2) Set: Renewing Mist has a 2% increased chance to increase the healing of your next Vivify. I just got this two piece set but equipping it lowers my overall ilvl. That paired with the set bonus seeming incredibly weak, I'm contemplating whether or not it's worth going for the raw stats instead. Thoughts? Is the set bonus stronger than it seems?Astora5 02 May

29 Apr WW Ptr changes This seems to be quality of life changes, but that is not what we currently need. Overall on the ptr we loose about 10% of our aoe dps and recieve about 0.5% st buff. We need a change that help us actually be viable for raiding/arena. Can we use this thread to get some constructive feedback to Bliz from the EU community, because they seem to miss the mark every new PTR release. 29 Apr
29 Apr What's this new follower? Seriously guys, I feel so disappointed with what we get after a chain of quests. There is no progression of events. I am not sure how the heck that Nathrezim possessed my brewer. I also had no idea I had a brewer lol. I have no idea why we went to MoP Brewery. I am not sure why that novice brewer accompanied with me. I have no idea why the spirit decided to end its existence. She was capable of brewing from the after life as well. And most important: why in the name of God, I have a new epic follower of a some random novice brewer? It was like a biggest f word, I have ever faced. We could just go out and ask one of Tiger Initiates "hey pal, wanna be my follower?". It would make more sense. Disappointment.Urthémiel9 29 Apr
28 Apr Handwraps Mog Feedback Hi I don't know if this is the right way to send feedback i'm not really familiar with writing at the forums, I'm a bit scarred to do it but here we go In 7.1.5 i could go to peak of serenity(past) to get the handwraps, even though i've completed the order hall intro quests. But 7.2 well i can't get them anymore since the peak is now destroyed for those who completed the intro quests. So i would like to ask, Could you bring them to Caydori brightstar at the order hall?. For she sells the Meditation Manual: Zen flight like master hwang used to.Quinglong6 28 Apr
