For information about playing the class in 0100WoW Icon 16x16 World of Warcraft, see 0500Icon Mists 34x18 Ui-charactercreate-classes monk Monk.

Monks are culturally considered ascetic and studious. When Malygos is in humanoid form, he takes the shape of a studious monk or similar individual.[1] Pandaren are formidable monks, following their philosophies to the letter and perfecting their martial arts as they see fit.[2] Runemasters are said to be monk-like as well.[3] Monks can be found throughout Azeroth; some belong to the Scarlet Crusade, and others are found in the ranks of the draenei.

In World of Warcraft Edit

0100WoW Icon 16x16 This section concerns content exclusive to World of Warcraft.

Monk was added as a new playable Class in the 0500Mists-Logo-Small Mists of Pandaria expansion.

Some monks did exist in World of Warcraft before the playable class, but they were primarily the Western-style monks who fought with the Scarlet Crusade or were found in existing churches and monasteries.

In the RPG Edit

0000The RPG Icon 16x36 This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft RPG, and thus unlikely to be canon.

Monks initially were a denied class in the original Warcraft RPG sourcebook, at the time believed not to be relevant to the Warcraft world[4] (WRPG 54). However, monks were later incorporated through the Runemaster, and references to monks appear throughout various points in RPG lore as well as World of Warcraft. However no specific monk class was ever created.

Notes Edit

  • Although the Warcraft universe has monks, they don't appear to have Wp icon nuns (female counterpart to monks), just female monks.
