Why do people say Monks are OP?

While you are at it...


Brewmaster has a High skill cap, but is a wonderful tank.

Windwalker, yeah I will give you that, but in no way are they at the bottom. Next patch in 5.2, they have the buff stick out the who-how and on top, will dominate in PvP with Ring of Peace/Mastery Change, new spell, and a new brew to help get out of sticky situations.

Also they get basically a Mirror Image. So yeah... 5.2 Windwalker is going to be something else.

Mistweaver, havent tried so no idea.

It's just a marketing tactic by Blizz to sell the expansion and the new class they put into the game.

In WLK, they introduced the DK, were OP and faceroll easy, everyone made a DK.

Now in MoP, Monks are OP to sell the class, infuse the population with more of that class, but once the novelty wears off Blizz will nerf the class and turn it into a re-skinned Druid class.

DK's were OP in early Wrath.

Not sure how you're getting Monks being OP in early MoP.

I mean IMO monks are a blast to play. It's a bummer they are so low on the food chain.
