I got the mastery AAs for tailoring and pottery (3 levels of each cost = 3,6,9 for levels so 36 AAs spent total)
When you are max mastery, you automatically have a 50% chance to suceed in a combine no matter your skill.
After you get the AAs, go to your trainer and spend as many points as you can into pottery and tailoring (21?) then go do your combines.
Took me 7 combines to polish all 3 symbols and 2 combines for sash at 6 skill pottery and 2 skill tailoring.
Hope this saves someone some time!

normal hits run about 400 with crits of <800.
Once i finish 1.5 i'll be slapping lifetaps augs on those and bandolier switch as needed
Lenderhand your forgetting about the monks primary skill - FD. If we get too much agroo from procs, or whatever, we FD for a few sec, the tank builds up more agroo and we stand back up.
On raid mobs you need to be more careful, but I beleive he was talking about xp situations.

Also One of the pecularities of FD that they might have changed, but I doubt it, is the fact that if you use it with out turning your attack off, you loose any chance at all of the MoB forgetting about you, so the only aggro reduction you gain is the same as just backing away from the mob for a second or two.
A better Aggro reduction Macro would be /Flying Kick /attack off /FD /sit /attack on.
now if you guys have raided xegony you know its a long drawn out annoying *** raid
Im using a pole of punishment 52dmg 33dly 2hander which is a heck of alot easier to get than epic 1.5 + xegony fist
and i parse at 250dps
now granted perhaps i have more AA than the other guy but regardless i still believe the Bone Staff of wickedness from Anguish would out dmg epic 2.0 paired with another gates / omens 1hander for the offhand
As the Pole of Punishment is not on the same par as epic 1.5 / xegony fist combo yet does more dmg
the 2hb on par with that setup would have to be the Staff of Transcendance from Timeplane and it would obviously do significantly more dps
( although I do prefer 2handers i never liked the Fsoz no dmg bonus and weak *** base dmg (35/laugh)
granted 1handers give more hp , but 2handers of comparative difficulty to achieve give more dmg. im still pissed that the epic 2.0 was not a 2hander
did anyone see the SK epic 2.0 ? its insane
I personally use Seething Fists of Slaughter and Mindreaper club, (MPG raid trial and Tacvi). Stats, hp, ac, everything superior to a 2hb.
I routinely parse for 350ish on normal fights, no disc, and can crit in the high 900's using them. The Bonestaff doesn't quite reach those numbers even with all 2hb AA's, of course the dmg numbers you see will be higher, but much slower and your overall dps will not be equal to that of a descent set of 1handers.
Now if you compare the 2.0 with a good offhand such as AMV wraps, your dps can be upwards of 400-450 on normal mobs. 2HBlunts just don't come close.
Regarding whats best for monks 2hander or h2h/1hb, it all comes down to how your own style is, I personaly prefer duel wield, it gives better stats and hps, and my dps is higher with duel wield than with 2hander, Im using 1.5 as main hand, and xeggy fist in offhand, with this combo, my dps parses avg at 224, and with FSoZ Im parsing 197, sure some of the crits from zha is higher, but if I use speed disc with duel wield it outdmgs zha with innerflame, and if I use innerflame with duel wield, I can make some fairly high crits as well, record so far is 586...
And further more the 1handers from Time, GoD, OoW have some mad rots, and yes I know theres some pretty good 2handers aswell, but like I said, it comes down to your own style..
A small example Seething Fists of Slaughter

we have more damage AA's suited toward 2handers , why in the hell did we end up with a friggen 1hander for an epic ?????
Ambidexterity = 9aa
Sinister Strikes(GoD) = 15aa
Slippery attacks(Omens) = 15aa
Punishing Blade = 2+4+6 = 12aa
Rapid strikes = 20aa and gives a chance for the primary hand to do extra attacks which works for either. I'm not sure which it favors since it depends how it triggers(delay related or not).

your thinking of all the specilation done on the concept art noone knew back then yes its a H2H weapon as it should be and if your wondering it simply looks like 3 runes floating around the monks hand.
