I love how the author rates the brewmaster as "less seen" and just a second after stays "I would expect to see fewer guilds use double brewmaster as their go-to tank composition", inmediately assuming you will have at least one in every raid.And it's true, because as long as MW and WW keeps being mediocre choices you will see one BrM in EVERY raid. You can't rate it on less seen dude.
Thank you for not just writing a tier list
Thank you for pointing out the most important fact of all, regardless of what class you pick, its only as good as the player behind it. As OrcinusDrake said, thank you for not just pumping out another tier list.
"The fact that Windwalker and Mistweaver are considered weak competitive raiding specs means that a Brewmaster can feel somewhat mandatory for groups wanting to apply Mystic Touch, which is quite disappointing."WRONG - Windwalker isn't weak atm as you'll soon see.
Windwalker is packing quite a bit of damage but brings far less utility then other melee dps you may want to bring. It's a completely viable choice....but not really a desired one.
I do have 1 concern in Guardians tanking..and that is keeping threat from say a tank who does much better dps.
Well done Panthea. For those ^&*!@ing about being told what to play: I expect the article's title was written by a Wowhead click-bait expert, not by Panthea. The article does not actually tell you what spec you should play, it rather details some of the pros and cons of each option. Much more useful in my opinion, as I do not appreciate being told 'X is OP' or 'Y is garbage' without reasons. However, I think it remains to be seen whether every tank spec is truly viable in mythic raiding. We'll be watching the top 20 or so mythic guilds closely to see what they actually do. "Play what you enjoy, all tanks are viable" is a nice line, but if a top 20 guild actually has a VDH tanking I'll be surprised. Making all tanks equally viable should always be the goal, just like making all DPS specs equally viable.... but we know how that always turns out.
Too bad the "Closing Thoughts" will probably be ignored by most people, who potentially will only read which classes are "the best" and which classes to avoid at all costs lol
