Staggering damage is unique to Brewmaster monks, allowing them to avoid taking a full, possibly lethal, amount of damage all at once. Instead, they take 80% of the damage up front, then the remaining 20% is applied over 10 seconds. This makes it much easier for healers to keep the monk alive, as well as allowing time for the monk to use {{ability|Purifying Brew}} if high enough level.

Stance of the Sturdy Ox is a monk stance learned at level 10 for those with the Brewmaster specialization. It is a tanking stance and provides a host of benefits, including the ability to stagger damage.

Staggering damage is unique to Brewmaster monks, allowing them to avoid taking a full, possibly lethal, amount of damage all at once. Instead, they take 80% of the damage up front, then the remaining 20% is applied over 10 seconds. This makes it much easier for healers to keep the monk alive, as well as allowing time for the monk to use [Purifying Brew] if high enough level.

Notes

To use [Purifying Brew], take note of what type of Stagger you are currently carrying:

  • Heavy Stagger (red): greater than 6% of health/sec, purify now
  • Moderate Stagger (yellow): greater than 3% of health/sec, make ready to purify
  • Light Stagger (green): greater than 0% of health/sec, no need to purify
