Monk Class Hall – Possibilities and Speculations

Shrine of Seven Stars

Good news everyone! I have a shameful lot of time on my hands, so I have written a little exposition about different locations and themes our future Monk Class Hall could potentially have. Since Blizzard hasn’t graced us with the information yet, I will take the opportunity to flex my imagination’s muscles and bombard your visual senses. Since I also like to rant a lot, it would be foolish to expect any sort of brevity. Away we go!

Updates to Transmog Guide

GreenI’m a bit embarrassed. Here I was, browsing my own blog and suddenly realized that I hadn’t updated my transmog page. To cover my negligence, I’ve now added T18 Monk set and the Season 17 PvP set. You can find them on the “Monk Sets” page. I’ve also taken the liberty of adding my two favourite Draenor transmogs in “Customized sets“; Jade Healer and Tide Healer. But only two, because I must say, Draenor hasn’t exactly favoured transmog this expansion.

Blizzard may have gone a little overboard with the whole “primal” look. It’s all fur and tattered cloth everywhere. I mean, our BiS chest looks like a fur bikini top on females. I’m not a hundred percent sure what the male version is supposed to look like. Maybe a bib?

Some good things though. As of T18, tier set designs will be inspired by the class instead of the raid settings. Can’t overstate my relief on this decision! The whole Kromog boulder shoulders T17’s normal and heroic designs had to deal with was a little off-putting. Them Mythic shoulders though, they were just about right. Jade fire and golden details? “Please sir, I want some more?”

About my Addons

Since people keep asking on three different platforms “when are you gonna put up the new weakauras on your site?” I’m gonna make a short post here and answer that question. For those who are wondering what I’m talking about, take a look at my latest youtube videos and you’ll understand.

The short answer to the question is that there are no “new” weakauras. You’re looking at my old ones. They’ve just had a small makeover with an addon called Masque paired with an extension addon (I mentioned this in one of the videos but it seems not all were reading that).

Masque addon with extensions

I’ve modified my old addons just a tiny bit. I removed the progress bar (since it remained square, even while the icon aura had been skinned to a circle). Instead I’ve used separate text auras to show time progression, stacks etc. It’s very simple and easy to set up.

So, there are no new auras just a new addon.

Musings on Mistweavers

Musing

The Developers of WoW have made a slight change of how they proceed with the talking about new expansions – namely, that they don’t. Apparently, they said too much before WoD and players got disappointed when the things they were promised changed in the final product. I’m totally in agreement with that it’s better to hold things secret a little bit longer than promising stuff they can’t keep. It’s also good that the actual talking and promising is much closer to the launch, because otherwise we go mooning about the new stuff we want but can’t have for over half a year. So, good things all around.

It does however create a large mystery about what we should expect. We know they’ll be focusing on class identity and that most likely Mistweavers will see a lot of changes – but we don’t know what. We know that there’ll be artifacts (Sheilun, hello) and Order Halls – but we don’t know completely what and where. Not knowing create a lot of suspense. I’m gonna go ahead and let my imagination run wild here. What would I like to see in Legion regarding Mistweavers?

A Teasplosion of Goodness – Hello Legion!

Legion_Box_2

Hello again! What…? What do you mean I’ve been AFK? I have no idea what you’re talking about…

Okay, I admit it, I’ve been a little bit distracted and haven’t maintained my blog as I should. Apologies. But now I’m here and super excited over the latest WoW announcements! I will also try to catch up on all the comments I’ve got, so working on that.

But let’s  get to the point. New expansion announced – Legion. By the looks of it, it’s a second Burning Legion expansion, but actually as you go through the content they’ve shown it’s much more of a Night elf expansion. A lot of old Night elf cities and lore. So, no more random spikes and fires. Why, thank you. It was getting a little bit old to be honest.

The brunt of the new content is;
