Teahouse Pre-Patch Updates!

Be ready – for it’s here – the pre-patch! Prepare yourself for wonky balance issues and loud crying on the forums while you frantically try to figure out what the hell happened to your spec. But don’t be afraid, I’m here to let you find your way back home to the Mistweaver spec.

Before I start, I just want to go over the latest changes I haven’t been able to post about yet.

Mistweaver Changes

  • Mistweaver Monk aura changed from -20% to 0% (affecting Rising Sun Kick).
  • Renewing Mist now has a recharge time of 9 sec, up from 8 sec.
  • Vivify now heals for 95% of spell power, down from 105%.
  • Life Cocoon now absorbs damage equal to (Spell Power * 11)* Versatility, down from 12.6.
  • Surging Mist (Honor Talent) now heals for 160% of spell power, down from 200%. Also, base mana cost changed from 2%, up from 1%.

Tuning continues and they obviously want mistweavers to be down again with the other healers after having been ever so slightly overtuned. Here’s hoping they don’t overdo it! I have no way of knowing, I haven’t really done any hardcore content on beta, just fixing all my weakauras for Bfa. We will see how it pans out in the pre-patch!

Patch 8.0 Teahouse Updates

Here are the so far updated pages:

Basic Mistweaving Guide
Talents
Icon Weakauras

As with every big launch, I have to do the updates in stages. Now you can at least re-learn the basics of Mistweaving, its talents and an added bonus: a completely new HUD to go with the fancy new talents and spell priorities! Hurray!

Anyway, I’ll patiently wait until the pre-patch actually hits EU servers (about half a day until then). Meanwhile, I’ll continue working on my secret monk project that you might be hearing about closer to launch *wink wink*.

More updates will be rolling in as I get to them. Until next time!

Teahouse Final Landing and Updates

June is over and I’m home from my latest and last trip. In July, I’m gonna go full cave woman and you’ll have to ply me with a crowbar to get me out of my chair now. I’m here, and I’m gonna be here for a while. So now, let me update you on all that has been going on while I’ve been away!

New Beta Build and Azerite Interface

A new build has been dropped on the beta! It’s a bit light on mistweaver changes, but the azerite armor has finally gotten its spanking new interface. Here are the relevant changes for any curious mistweavers!

New Beta Build – Azerite Traits Changes and Additions

Another beta build has arrived, though there aren’t many mistweaver changes in this one. Instead, we get a sniff of upcoming Azerite Traits that will basically replace tier set bonuses. I suspect we’ve only seen the beginning of Azerite traits so far, and there are likely many more to come. But here’s a preview!

Mistweaver Changes

  • Life Cocoon now absorbs [(((Spell power * 12.6) + 0)) * (1 + Versatility)], up from * 9.
  • Mistweaver Monk passive has been boosted by 40%.
  • Chrysalis (Honor Talent) now reduced the cooldown of Life Cocoon by 30 sec, down from 90 sec.

Monk Azerite Traits

New Beta Build – Mistweaver Changes, War Mode, and More

The Bfa beta was updated last night with a new build. Today we got some minor changes to mistweavers, and a blue post on the new war mode. I got to say, I’m starting to warm up to the idea of world pvp. Always having active honor talents and being able to go full on bounty hunter seems kind of fun!

Mistweaver Changes

Azerite Trait Changes

  • NEW Fit to Burst – Drinking Purifying Brew while at Heavy Stagger causes your next 3 melee abilities to heal you for 360.
  • NEW Misty Peaks – When your Renewing Mists jumps, you have a 10% chance to gain 128 Haste for 8 seconds.
  • Sunrise Technique now has a damage over time aspect.

The Big Mistweaver Feedback Post 1.0

I have been on the alpha (build 26476) and tried the new mistweaver changes. I hope I’m catching the blizzard developers in one of their class-changing cycles right now, because there’s a lot of feedback I want to give – both good and bad! Here’s hoping that a developer sees this. I’ve tried to be clear and succinct in my feedback, but I’m still me so it’s longer than I planned. Oh, well!

General Impression

Overall, I’m positive about the changes and I think we’re going in the right direction for Mistweavers. So far, I’ve haven’t had the opportunity to raid heal on the alpha, but I’ve done plenty of dungeon healing, so my focus will probably be skewed in that direction in this post. I will go through both positive changes and some of the things I want improved.

New Alpha Build and I Got in!

After killing Argus Mythic, I finally got access to the Battle for Azeroth alpha! Now I can check out all the changes by myself, and keep you freshly updated.

Heart of Azeroth – Monk Preview

In Battle for Azeroth, we will say goodbye to our artifacts. Instead we will get a neck-piece called Heart of Azeroth, which we will empower with Azerite much like we empowered the artifacts with artifact power. Here is a small preview of how the system works, with a sneak peek at a few Monk traits!

The Heart of Azeroth

  • The Heart of Azeroth
  • Your Heart of Azeroth is used for all specs! No need to gain Azerite to level each spec, it’s the same power progression.
  • Levelling the Heart through azerite will unlock traits in the three Azerite Armor slots (Head, Shoulders and Chest).
  • Higher levelled Heart unlocks more traits in the armor.
  • There are four tiers of traits in the armor tree. See concept image below:
Concept image of the tier tree for a head-piece ‘Coil of Entwined Fates’
  • Each unique armor piece has different traits to choose from, with higher level gear having better traits. These traits are predetermined.

New Alpha Build and Monk Races

A new alpha build came last night, and although there’s few changes to Mistweavers, Monks have gained two new races.  Here’s a small recap on the things that concern Monks!

Mistweaver Changes

Not many changes to Mistweavers, but it seems that Blizzard haven’t quite gotten to the healers specs yet. The damage classes and specs have first priority, and we’ll probably see the healer changes coming soon.

Monk Allied Races

New information on the Allied Races is trickling down the alpha mining. Two of the new races can be Monks, so here’s a small summary of the races and their racials.

NEW Races!
