I’m Platforming: Tumblr

2560x1440 - Youtube Kanalbild

Just a small updates for my lovely readers. Since I like to spam pictures of my transmog and in the future: my ui, I have now made it easier by creating a Tumblr page for Misty Teahouse. Here’s the link:

Misty Teahouse on Tumblr

So, if you like to look at UIs and transmogs, please follow my Tumblr page. I will update it with a lot of pictures, probably everyday because I have a trigger finger on the “print screen” key. I hope you’ll like it! The page is linked to my blog, so you can see notifications of my blog posts as well!

Warcraft Classes – A Personal Review

A while ago, I managed to get my last character up to level 100. That’s right, now I have every single Warcraft class on max level. In light of this, I thought I could write a review of what I thought of each class. Do note however that I’m not reviewing how it is to raid as each single class, because I haven’t got that far with them (and I will probably never do so much work). This post is supposed to serve as a lighthearted commentary on class fantasies and mechanics. Keyword is “fun”!

MonkClass - Monk

You already know that my heart got stolen by the Mistweaver spec, but there are two other specs I haven’t talked much about. I know, right? Monks having other specs, pfft. But they do exist, Brewmaster and Windwalker, no matter how much I ignore them. To be fair, Brewmaster is kind of fun. Probably one of the few tank specs that I actually like, and I say that with a background as a tank (before I rerolled healer). The Brewmaster spec is very flexible with a plethora of strong tank cooldowns. I strongly favour them from a healer perspective as well. Being a reaction-based throughput healer can really put your heart in your mouth when the tank’s HP is making a rollercoaster (looking at you, Druids). A Brewmaster’s HP is thankfully very stable. Hurray for mitigation!

Windwalkers then? I must say, while I think the fantasy of a wind and lightning-based martial arts combatant is very cool, the mechanics of the spec fall a bit short. The Storm, Earth, Fire, Wind, Water and Heart ability (or whatever it’s called) is a really clumsy mechanic that requires a number of addons to keep track on. I think I would prefer the spec without that ability. And with more wind and lightning effects. Especially lightning.

Honestly, I might have liked them more if it wasn’t for that weird nerf and buff circus they have going on. It is really making my Crane stance puke. Figuratively, that is.

Warlock

Class - Warlock

I don’t know how many times I’ve tried to level a Warlock, and for some reason or other, I’ve never succeeded. Until now, that is! I must say that I’m positively surprised. It was ridiculously easy to level in Draenor with a Voidlord that tanks everything. And when I got sick of pets, as I always do in the end, I could always sacrifice it for the greater evi- I mean good.

Warlock is not exactly a super easy class to get into as a beginner, I would say. A lot of spells interacting with each other, some stance dancing and some secondary resources that you have to get to know first. It took me a while to get the gist. But once I got it, it became really fun!

I’m also partial to the class because of transmog. I mean, the Corruptor set, the Deathbringer set, the Cataclysmic Gladiator set, etc. Stop looking so cool! It makes my heart ache for not being a cloth-wearer on my main!

Mistweaver Commentary – Archimonde Heroic

What do you mean it took forever to create and post this video? It’s called being fashionably late.

Okay, I admit, it took much longer than I projected. But it’s here now in all its glory. But I must say, what kept me back was my low self-confidence. Feels a bit weird to tell people how they should do things when I in no way consider myself a master. But maybe it can help you, a little bit?

WeakAura Hub added to Misty Teahouse

Painting

My labours have finally come to an end. If you look up a little on the page, to the blog’s menu, you’ll see a new addition: “WeakAura Hub”. Since I have put so much passion and effort into my own UI, I thought I would share some of the wisdom I’ve come by. Not only does it contain my WeakAura Library, a page about WA skins, my WeakAura School, but also a page about my UI Philosophy and a page for some inspiration. I really hope you guys will like it. It will be continued work in progress and I’ll try to add things as I go along (more WeakAuras to come, definitely).

WeakAura Hub

  • WeakAura Library – A library filled with export codes to different Mistweaver weakauras.
  • WeakAura Skins – A summary of different skinning addons I use to WA.
  • WeakAura School – A guide to building your own auras.
  • UI Philosophy – I talk about my own UI, how I think and reason behind creative decisions. A helpful page for those who need an extra helping hand with their own UI!
  • UI Inspiration – Some inspiration for you guys.

That’s it for now. Let me know what you think!
