Mistweaver Notes – Emerald Nightmare

Whenever I’m gonna tackle a new raid, I study and take notes of each boss encounter. Here are my notes for the Emerald Nightmare raid (Heroic). My guild cleared both Normal and Heroic the first week of release, so I haven’t spent much time doing these encounters but the notes should be rather complete. I’ve snuck a few Mistweaver tips in there as well!


“Darkbough” Wing

Nythendra

  • 1-nythendraStand 8 yds away from allies when affected by Rot. When expired, green patch will spawn beneath you. Put puddles at the edge of a room at a designated location.
  • Run out of Infested Breath. It targets random non-tank players. Make sure that the subsequent puddles are as stacked as possible by having players standing near existing puddles when breath is incoming.
  • Do not stand near insects when Heart of the Swarm is active. Puddles will also be sucked into the boss, watch out for flying green patches (which is why you want to stack them, so there are safe areas in this phase).
  • Infested debuff stacks inevitably during the fight and is cleared at Heart of the Swarm.
  • Chi-Ji / Revival / Mana Tea on Infested Breath and/or Heart of the Swarm.
  • High points of raid damage; if caught in Infested Breath, if standing close to insects during Heart of the Swarm, or if close to a tank’s Volatile Rot detonation. Use Diffuse Magic for survival.

PTR and Mistweaver Crash Course

The PTR for the Legion pre-patch is up and running! Everyone can try the new Mistweaver Monk and check out all the new features. I recommend you to do it! Are you confused about all the new abilities and changes? Don’t worry, I have you covered.

This is actually a small project I started months ago, though I thought I wouldn’t finish it for quite a while. But this morning I jumped into the PTR and felt “crap, I really need to finish this guide”. So I’ve been working all day to finish it for you guys.

It’s a small introduction to Mistweaver Monks in Legion, tuned for patch 7.0 currently. Changes may occur between now and launch, so keep that in mind. I share it now so that new and old players can easily be introduced to the Legion version of Mistweaver Monks as soon as possible.

How I Became a Millionaire

World of Warcraft millionaire that is. Otherwise I would have bought a new drawing tablet at this point, geez.

This is a bit of an odd subject that I usually don’t cover. But since it was requested a few times, and Legion is getting closer and closer, I thought I might share the secret of how you can fill your pockets with WoW gold. You will need it when those fancy new BoE items drops in Legion and prices are soaring on the Auction House. Fair warning though, you will still have to work to get the money!

I have used the Garrison quite successfully the past time to fill my pockets: I currently own the not-too-shabby fortune of 1.7 million gold. I could probably have much more if I’d been more diligent, but hey, we can’t all be perfect. So, in this post I will tell you how I got my fortune, and how you can get yours.

You will need:

  • Time
  • Patience
  • Preferably as many level 100 characters as possible
  • A small initial capital of a few thousand gold

I made my fortune through the Garrison, by doing garrison missions daily on all my alts (more details below). It requires some patience, but unlike the Auction House mini-game, the money is at least guaranteed. But is it as easy as to log in to your characters and do missions every day? Well… yes, but you need to do some things before the gold actually starts heaping up. Let’s start with the buildings and other stuff you need:

Blackhand Guide

BlackhandIt is finally done and published! My guide for the last boss of Blackrock Foundry; Blackhand, warlord of the Blackrock clan.

Blackhand Encounter Guide

The fight against Blackhand is the most fun encounter in this tier and it’s a perfect fit for Mistweavers. I had a blast doing it and if you haven’t done it yet, make sure to do it as soon as possible!

Now that I’m done with the encounter guides, I’m going to concentrate on my youtube videos and maybe even a few addon guides since so many are interested in how I’ve done my UI. Hopefully, you’ll like it :)

End Bosses of the Foundry Wings

The encounter guides for Blackrock Foundry’s Wing end bosses are finally done. You can now read the Mistweaver specific guides for Kromog, Iron Maidens and the Blast Furnace. So don your reading glasses and dig yourself into the mysterious ways of the Mistweaver in the fiery Foundry. The wing end bosses are the hardest bosses, bar Blackhand himself. Keep your brews and teas in check at all times.brf05

The Blast Furnace Encounter Guide

Kromog Encounter Guide

Iron Maidens Encounter Guide

The only guide I have left to write now is the Lord of Blackrock Clan, Blackhand. That guide will come eventually! I have a few other projects I am working on in the meanwhile. Can’t say I’m ever done writing or posting on this blog, haha.

Tea Mist and Blackrock Foundry Bosses

OregorgerI’m back from a shorter skiing holiday again! I hope you guys have missed me, because I’ve surely missed you. But I haven’t been sitting completely idly, or spent too much time on the after-skis, I’ve also been writing on my Blackrock Foundry guides! I’ve just completed another set of three bosses and I except to be finished with the next set of three within the week. Here they are;

Oregorger Encounter Guide

Flamebender Ka’graz Encounter Guide

Operator Thogar Encounter Guide

They really take time to make, so you might already know the basics of each fight. However, I keep expanding on the Mistweaver specific section for each Blackrock Foundry boss. You can still learn something by reading them, I hope!

Three BRF Boss Guides and Lunar Festival!

BlackrockClanI’ve finished three of my Blackrock Foundry encounter guides, namely Gruul, Hans’gar & Franzok and Beastlord Darmac. I will not write the guides wing-per-wing, part because that’s not how you progress in BRF and part because the Misty Teahouse does not like sense and order. A little chaos once in a while will not hurt!

Gruul Encounter Guide

Hans’gar & Franzok Encounter Guide

Beastlord Darmac Guide

New for these guides is a small Mistweaver discussion about which talents and glyphs can suit that particular fight. Hopefully this will help you make strategic choices for each fight and optimize yourself as best as you can!

Advanced Mistweaving Strategy Guide is up!

TEMPLE OF THE JADE SERPENT 3

*Deep breath* Okay, it’s finally complete. To tell you the truth I’m a little bit scared. I really hope you guys like it, and if you have any feedback that would also be welcome!

So, my dear readers, I’ve finally done with the very long and big project of writing a more advanced guide for Mistweavers. I’ve also redone the old Strategy guide a little bit and dubbed it “Basic Mistweaving Strategy”.

The old “Strategy” page is now –>

Basic Mistweaving Strategy

Imperator Mar’gok Guide is up!

Force Nova 4

And the last part of my Highmaul guides is finally up! The Imperator is the final boss of Highmaul and it is a long fight that can be pretty complex. The guide is quite long, but there is a summary at the end if you’re only interested to read the short version of it.

Imperator Mar’gok Guide

Now good luck and have fun with the encounter!

Highmaul “The Walled City” Guide up!

Butcher - ChristmasI’ve finished the first three bosses for the Highmaul guide! Hurray! Okay, maybe it is a little bit late, but better late than never, right? I will also finish the rest of the boss guides soonish. They’re at least half-finished so it shouldn’t take too long. For now, check these out:

Kargath Bladefist Guide

The Butcher Guide

Brackenspore Guide
