I have about 10 hours of recordings from PTR though ques were long and my opponents weren't all exactly that good. Check out my VODs at http://www.twitch.tv/mush777
I've been playing and streaming 3s on PTR and MW monks in the current state of PTR are the best healers along with paladins IMO. Melee cleaves are extremely strong especially when paired with a monk. KFC, thug cleave, spriest/rogue, spriest/ww monk, and ww monk/hunter will be popular comps for MW monks from what it looks like along with all the current warrior comps as well. WW and MW monks would be stackable on teams because Ring of Peace and the ranged undispellable paralysis are a bit too overpowered.
Ring of peace does not DR with anything, it can be targeted on allies or enemies, it has a 40 yard range and is instant cast. There is a short delay before the ring of peace actually starts working so you can get 1-2 casts off before it silences/disarms. Aura mastery does not negate ring of peace from what I've seen.
Ring of peace is a bit buggy and seems to not always work properly as I was able to cast with an enemy's RoP on me for about 7 seconds before it worked on me one time. It can be trinketed for an extremely short period of time where you can get one ability off before it procs again. Divine shield (pally bubble) is one thing that negates it and paladins can still BOP of course. One heal you can get off during ring of peace is chi torpedo but the problem is you will disarm/silence your partner(s). You can still use spear hand strike and paralysis while under the effects of ring of peace so use that to stop damage if you can.
Ring of peace should not make it live the way it is now that but in the case that is does, we'll be looking at one extremely shitty season full of monks running cheesy comps.
WW Monks and rogues are still glass cannons but do a lot more damage this time around. Good thing MW monks are melee counters.
I was almost un-cc-able outside of instant cc such as priest silence and ring of peace. Positioning and mobility are the keys to avoiding cc as a MW monk can use max range very effectively.
I tried using both zen spheres and chi wave but chi wave had out-shined zen sphere in almost every situation. It did about 3x the output when compared to zen spheres.
MW Monks are extremely mana efficient with chi wave costing no chi. I was able to keep enveloping mist up almost 100% of the time. Sometimes I had too much chi and had to refresh enveloping mist early or even use it on uplift.
