I have 3 weapons, 2 with dancing steel and 1 with weapon chain if anyone on the other team has a disarm I use 1 dancing steel and 1 with weapon chain. If no disarms on other team I use double dancing steel.

No problem, and it's even better if you get the 2200 weapon chain enchant, even if they don't disarm you, you still get the benefit of the extra PvP power it provides.

One thing I'll add to this, I don't think any monk uses leg sweep vs. ox wave correctly, I feel like alot of situations I just take leg sweep because Its what I'm use to, and (for example) Hoodr uses ox wave, because hes use to it, some situations and comps (jungle for example) I'm never really using leg sweep on the healer, and tend to use it on a feral cleaving me instead of communicating with my teamates to say I'm going to paralysis him as a peel, and not to break it.

Other thing, I've done quite a bit of testing with haste as a monk, and what my actaull reforge is aside, around 7% haste (with ascension) is where I liked to be in terms of energy regin, obviously that number changes based on how much you get peeled, if you get to sit on a dk all game, you may energy starve faster then if your constantly cc'd by say god comp.

Also you can arena 1-3 everything instead of focus (when rogues were subterfuge 1 shot gods I made disarm 1-3 macros so i can spam it out of subterfuge) your choice and playstyle to use those, just takes getting use to.

Also toss provoke into a macro with Xuen, it makes him... less stupid and kinda work better

Great guide! Helped a lot on my monk alt. +rep

Unnecessary addition: Too bad Monk/Mage/Druid isn't a top tier comp... I just love the playstyle of it...

Thanks man, and for streaming, if things continue the way they are I doubt I'll ever stream but since I've seen the new arena changes they have planned similar to RBG's I feel that I could play a lot more than I do now because I am on a low pop server with my friends and my success in arena is based off how good me and my friends classes are currently, so to answer your question, maybe sometime in the future.

Hey guys, just wondering: How viable would it be to use the knockback on Crackling Jade Lightning as an interrupt on Healers/Casters etc? Would it be possible to Chi Roll into a caster and use CJL to knock them back?

Well they can't melee you while casting so not really useful, the knockback requires the target to attack you in melee range.

would be better to paralyze in that situation

Thanks man, I've changed a little bit of it as I've tested more comps out, I actually just hit 2400 today with ele ww disc, ele are so op they can carry monks haha. Unless you play with a fotm monks aren't to good, we just have to wait till we're the fotm.

Ele WW? I guess ele damage really must carry that because ele and monk share like, every DR. You should stream if you could, the only person who streams high rated WW gameplay is Venruki, and he's almost always playing mage.

You're forgetting about the other 33% of the team, the priest. I played Rsham Spriest WW last patch too and it was probably one of the best comps you could run as a monk, it has the same CC as ele ww disc minus the shadow priest silence. And for streaming lol, maybe in the future.

Spriest/Monk synergy is pretty fantastic IMO.  They allow you to stay much more offensive without fear of getting blasted all to hell in a single healer cc and stun on you, since they can toss a few heals your way/drop fear bot/grip you away.  It's a very fun comp.  

As for Ele/WW....that just sounds super easy to turtle it out till stacks and procs kill something on accident =p  (and I play both specs lol)

my personal favorite so far is WW/lock/rsham or rdruid, my rsham partner is currently learning resto druid so looking forward to that, I think WW/lock is one of the better WW comps right now, WW/hunter/healer is really boring

It's just something we have to live with right now, just try to lead your rolls and kicks and it shouldn't be to bad. I try to land my serpent kick somewhere from 3-5 yards in front of them to compensate for lag.

I'm having alot of problems vs DK or Hunter/Priest on my monk in 2s. How do you usually approach these teams in 2s???
