Mists of Pandaria

New WoW Class : Monk



Monk Class

WoW Monk

  • Playable By Alliance Races: Draenei | Dwarf | Gnome | Human | Night Elf | Pandaren

  • Playable By Horde Races: Blood Elf | Orc | Pandaren | Tauren | Troll | Undead

  • Roles: Tank (Brewmaster) | Healer (Mistweaver) | Melee DPS (Windwalker)

  • Stances: Like Warriors, Monks will take advantage of stances to enhance their abilities to perform their roles. (Stance of the Drunken Ox, Stance of the Fierce Tiger, ???)

  • Usable Armor Type: Cloth | Leather

  • Preferred Attribues: Intellect (healing) | Agility (tank/dps)

  • Usable Weapon Types: Fist Weapons | One-Handed Axes | One-Handed Maces | One-Handed Swords | Polearms | Staves

  • Unique Attributes: Chi Energy | Jab rather than auto attack to build Light & Dark Forces | Jade Statues (Possibly like Shaman totems, or perhaps only a single spell like Druid mushrooms) | Martial arts focus with weapon finishes | Unique animations that are only used by Monks

  • Starting Level: Unlike Death Knights, Monks will start at level 1

  • Resources: All three Monk roles will use Light and Dark Forces. DPS and Tank Monks will use Chi engergy, and Healer Monks will use mana.

  • Class Color: The Monk class color will be a jade green. It will be easily distinguishable from the Hunter green just as the two blue classes Mage and Shaman are easy to recognize.

WoW Mists of Pandaria Monk

          Pandaren martial arts masters will share their unarmed combat techniques with their new Alliance and Horde friends teaching every race except Goblins and Worgen the secrets to becoming a Monk.

          Monks will harness their inner energy, or Chi, to perform any role including healing, tanking, or dealing massive damage. Monks will introduce a totally new style of healing for players to learn.

          Monks' martial arts and unarmed combat style will give a "street fighter" feel to players. They will still draw their weapons for awesome finishing moves.
