To Monk or Not To Monk

    I am trying to decide if I want to roll a Monk as my new Alt. I returned to the game a few months ago and currently have a Necro and an Inquisitor, which are both LVL 60+. I want to create a "Good" toon so I was considering a Monk in Hallos. Can someone who has played a Monk give me the Pros and Cons of a Monk. Also, how valuable are they in Raids and Battlegrounds? Any information you have will be appreciated.

    Im going to be honest with you.
    If you play the game for fun, go for a Monk.
    If you play it to dominate, go with SK or Berserker.

    The differences are immense in every aspect of the game. SK is the best solo, group, and raid; Zerkers own monks in group and raid. Monks are nice for soloing if you are ok with pulling one mob at a time...the thought if which makes my Zerker cry :(

    My Monk does quite well in groups and for non-raider groups I tend to be top of the DPS list. Only drawback is it is not really viable to deal with multiple mobs solo, and killing ^^^ heroics is unlikely unless they are almost going gray.

    I think monks only do well with multiple encounters in the end-game sequence. However on my Monk who is currently lvl 65 with 140 AA, i can solo same lvl nameds and no more than 1 ^^^ yellow con, close fights but i win them 90% of the time. I also do this in offense, hybrid and defense stance doesnt work too well when tryin to take these mobs down. Avoidance doesnt really mean squat unless you have atleast 80% avoidance, plus you lose out on melee skills, seem to miss with your biggest attacks.

    Agreed that monk is a fun toon. I play him solo or within guild and friends. But if I want to really DPS i pull out my conjy. monk to me is more like role playing.

    A monk is a fun class. The only area where they suffer is multiple mobs but with skill a monk can do it. Most people play the game for fun and sk's, paladins, and zerkers will make aoe content easier. However if you like a challenge then the monk in aoe will be your choice.
    Otherwise monks can solo one on one mobs easier than a zerker, but the crusaders can solo just as well.
    Monks no longer have a utility advantage either where crusaders and zerkers seem to have the upper hand.
