Use this thread to combine the feedback on monk related topics…
Hello my name is Kholer, I am a veteran of the Peak of the serenity discord and also currently maintain the apl for the sims on raidbots for windwalker monks.
Following up I will post my Tldnr feedback on the windwalker tierset you can find in the original thread “class sets in guardians of the dream”. Don’t be scared to write your feedback regarding monks and as always keep it concise and be nice:)
2pc: 5% chance to get a spinning crane kick proc that in return buffs a blackout kick by 100% (currently bugged and not consuming). Results in roughly 1proc per minute.
4pc: Consuming the proc reduces the cooldown of rising sun kick, fists of fury, strike of the windlord and whirling dragon punch by 1 second
The general idea of the tierset is very interesting, however its execution is very flawed at the moment. Spinning crane kick in st does no damage and we are near gcd capped in st already. Use a different trigger for this bonus, perhaps rising sun kick.
The 4 piece idea is nice, though cooldown reduction on whirling dragon punch is a joke since with current tuning we never get to cast it.
As a sidenote, this tierset is probably the weakest tierset u have ever designed. Due to it almost never proccing, the cooldown reduction is set way too low. We are currently expecting a damage bonus of 1% in total for 2 and 4p. To increase its value u need to buff the cooldown reduction and make the 2piece proc way more valuable (and proc more often). This could be achieved in a variety of ways and I will be interested to see with what solutions you come up in the future.
As always: Monk is love. Monk is life
