I haven't had a chance to take a look at the upcoming 5.1 changes to Monk, and now after having done so, from a Windwalker perspective, I am quite happy.
Spear Hand Strike now costs 10 energy (was 30).
The energy costs of Legacy of the Emperor, and Legacy of the White Tiger have been reduced to 20, down from 50.
The energy cost of Healing Sphere has been reduced to 40, down from 60.
The Tiger Power provided by Tiger Palm now reduces target armor by 30% with a single application and no longer stacks.
Stance of the Fierce Tiger now increases the Monk's movement speed by 10% in addition to its other effects. This movement speed increase stacks with other effects.
Just a few of the changes that I am anxiously awaiting. I am really looking forward to these changes.
The energy cut on our interrupt is very nice, since its cost is quite high, and the cut on the cost of healing sphere will help as well when you need that heal.
Not having to stack Tiger Power 3x at start of fights will greatly help when doing dailies, and farming, since when doing so, I tend to ignore it, but now with it only needing to be applied once, I think mastery will provide most of the refreshes.
The movement speed bonus in our only stance is just nice too. With Celerity, or whichever tier 1 talent you choose, and Flying Tiger Kick, our mobility is pretty nice, but the passive speed boost is just a great quality of life improvement.
Yeah the changes to WW monk are very nice... poor healers though.... poor poor healers.... Loved monk since mop day 1 mobility and dmg all in one love rolling off cliffs and gaining super forward momentum
