Pandaren MonkHaving the right WoW leveling builds is very important. Especially since every class has three different talent trees that make your character better at something in particular. Since the new patch, Mists of Pandaria, is on the way, I decided to share with you the best talent build for PvE for the Monk.

The three talents builds you will have on the Monk are Brewmaster, Mistweaver and Windwalker. The one you are interested in for PvE is Brewmaster.

This is the tank specialisation which you should use as you level up. Some of the abilities you will gain from this spec are Drunken Haze, an aoe debuff that gives a 3% chance for enemies to hit themselves for 14k damage every time they attack you. This effect can stack 3 times.

For defensive capabilities you will have Shuffle, Guard and Recoil. These abilities will help you avoid taking damage for brief periods of time and can also divert damage from the group to you.

The stance you will use with the Monk as a tank is Stance of the Drunken Ox. This stance will cause 50% of the damage you take to affect you 3 seconds after you were hit. This will make it easier for healers to keep your healed up when fighting tough bosses.

Why be a tank when leveling up?

As a tank you will be able to kill a lot more mobs until you need to rest. Plus you will also be able to fight several at once, which makes questing a lot faster. Not only that, but you will also find room in instances a lot easier.

This is one of the best WoW leveling builds also because when you reach level 80, you will definitely need to be a tank. Cataclysm monsters are a lot harder, so we can assume that the ones in Mists of Pandaria will also be tough.

Make sure you get the best WoW leveling builds and you will definitely have no trouble leveling you Monk when Mists of Pandaria goes live.

Note: The ability names are subject to change as the expansion is still in early Beta.
