Patch 7.2 Roundup on Mistweavers

A lot of changes for Mistweavers has been filtered through the PTR notes, but in bits and pieces. I try to summarize some of the latest changes and news regarding everything Mistweaver in this post. Take a look at what’s in store for patch 7.2 for Mistweaver Monks!

Mistweaver Changes

Blue Posts

On the removal of Mistwalk:

This was a primarily PvP-focused change. It wasn’t getting much use in PvE (and when it was, that was almost always the wrong choice), and it was giving Mistweavers far too much mobility in PvP, especially in RBGs where it was highly problematic.

We’re obviously aware that this change has balance implications, and are prepared to make any additional changes necessary for Mistweaver PvP performance.

New Monk UIs and Custom Art

I’ve been looking forward to sharing this for a long time. The past month I’ve been working on some new free UIs and textures for Monks. This is of course part of the update for my blog, which still has a few outdated pages (but a few less now!). These UIs are very simple Elvui profiles with some extra custom art and textures, and I hope you’ll like them!

It’s all for free, but some links lead to my Gumroad store. Just type in 0$ to download the art packages for free, or add a few dollars to show support for my work. Thanks! :)

New PvP Page!

I’m stuck in PvP swamp. Which is incredibly fun as a Mistweaver! I’ve set my eyes on high prestige levels to get all the artifact looks and mounts, which resulted in a lot of battleground popping. Since there is very little out there about PvP, I thought I’d write down the little knowledge I have (hence the ‘Basic’ in the name). Hopefully, it’ll help you get started!

Mistweaver Guide > Basic PvP Mistweaving

Admittedly, there are tremendously many great Mistweavers out there that are so much better at me at PvP. However, not much knowledge is written down to easy-to-read guides. For the ones that just need a basic overview, this guide is a great start!

Advanced Mistweaving Page Updated

I know it took forever for me to update the Advanced Mistweaving Strategy guide, but in my defense I had no idea what to write until now and didn’t have the time to sit down and figure it out. This is why vacations are awesome!

This time I expound more on the different styles of healing in Mythic+ vs raiding and how you can improve on both accounts. I also give a more detailed account of mana management, since that is usually a big topic in raid settings. The section of ‘What is a good healer’ from the old guide still has valid principles that can be applied to any healer class, and is therefore still in the guide.

Advanced Mistweaving Strategy

As for my own adventures in a Mistweaving world, my guild is currently progressing Nighthold Mythic. I must say, I infinitely prefer the encounters in Nighthold to those in Emerald Nightmare and Trial of Valor and this may or may not have to do with more opportunity for stack healing. And that I got the Legendary trinket. But just maybe!

Patch 7.2 Sneak peaks

A slew of new info for Patch 7.2 has been datamined. I have collected and summarized what will be happening for Monks and Mistweavers specifically in this post. More info will be forthcoming!

New Artifact Traits

Some old traits will get more ranks. Remember that now we have 1-3 base traits, but we can add 3 traits with relics, a.k.a. 6 traits max. In patch 7.2 some will get 2 more ranks available (7 & 8), but the max trait for base traits will be rank 5 (+ rank 6-8 if relics are added).

Additional ranks:

New Traits:

  • Effusive Mists Rank 1: Effuse causes Sheilun to generate a cloud of mist.
  • Tendrils of Revival Rank 1-8: Reduces the cooldown of Revival by 10-80 sec.
  • Whispers of Shaohao Rank 1: Consuming the mists of Sheilun causes each active mist to additionally heal a nearby target for x%.

MistyTeahouse Patreon on Short Break

I’m taking a short break on Patreon (you know, where people can subscribe for a package of interface art every month). You won’t be able to pledge until I restart it again in February. This is just a heads up!

My official Patreon post on the subject:

Hello guys! This month I’m going to take a break from Patreon, since I’ve been away skiing for a little over a week, I won’t have the time to create a whole UI. So, no new UI for January. I will restart again in February!

Now there are good news and bad news. Let’s start with the bad.

I have a pay-per-month account on Patreon, which basically withdraws money from my patrons the 1st of every month. This is automatic, I have no control over it. So, what I need is a pause-button that prevents payment that month. The problem is, there is a pause-button but it is in Beta and only a few Patreon creators can use that function. I’m not one of them.

According to Patreon’s help desk, to pause my account I need to revert to Patron-only (as opposed to Creator). The bad side of that is that I will lose all my patrons in the process, since a patron-account is not a creator and you can’t pledge anything. And that sucks. But it’s the only choice I have since I won’t have time to create a whole UI this month and I won’t charge my patrons for nothing.

The good news, though! 

I am an optimist if not, so while I begrudgingly have to basically reset my account for this month so no undue payments go through, I think of this as an opportunity. I want to rework my Patreon model a little, basically make it a little simpler and streamlined (which will of course make it cheaper as well). I’m still offering a mini-UI and a big-UI, but I won’t do any more tutorials since I have basically taught you guys everything I know. A.k.a. I will be focusing on the art only.

Back from Vacation!

I’ve had a very relaxing and nice vacation skiing the past week and a half – with no broken legs to boot! Will miracles never cease? But it seems like I’m late to the party; patch 7.1.5. is already out and I’ve just gotten home and scraped the snow off of me. Well, better late than never as they say!

The past week I’ve been in one of four modes: sleeping, skiing, baking in the sauna or reading in front of a fire. The only thing missing was a strong choke hold on the notifications on my phone. Tried having it muted, but people were so upset that I never got back to them. Why is it so wrong that I take three days to get back to people? I mean, I can no longer give a pertinent reply to the question “Where R U now?” three days later, but the thought counts, right?

Mistweaver Changes

  • Dampen Harm now reduces all damage you take by 20% to 50% for 10 seconds, based on the size of the attack, with a 2 minute cooldown.
  • Ring of Peace now forms a Ring of Peace at the target location for 8 seconds. Enemies that enter will be ejected from the ring.
  • Mastery: Gust of Mists healing increased by 30%.
  • Rising Sun Kick mana cost is now 2% of base mana (was 2.25%).
  • Song of Chi-Ji cooldown reduced to 15 seconds (was 30 seconds).
  • Diffuse Magic cooldown is now 90 seconds (was 120 seconds).
  • Zen Pulse damage and healing increased to 220% of spell power (was 200%).
  • Mistwalk healing increased to 420% of spell power (was 350%).

New Legendary Page

I haven’t been idle while the blog went down! When Misty Teahouse was in limbo, I decided to write a little about Mistweaver legendaries. Mostly about how they work, since it isn’t always obvious by just reading the description.

New Page: Mistweaver Legendaries

The page is sub-item to “Mistweaver Guide”, so you’ll find it listed there too. I’ve added more detailed descriptions of what the legendaries do, but since I haven’t been able to test all, I had to do some research on the legendaries that I do not own. Hopefully everything’s accurate, otherwise I’ll update it as needed.
