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.

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%.

Blizzcon Announcements – Future Patches

Buckle up your seat-belts, this will be a spoilery ride. New content has been announced from Blizzcon for many patches ahead, and I’ll be shamelessly delving into it without abandon. If you don’t like to know anything of what’s to come, don’t read this post and put a pillow around your face with a sleeping mask over. You’re gonna need it.

I could recap everything Ion Hazzikostas mentioned in the big reveal of Legion’s future, but then again I am a Monk. I have my monk-colored glasses on and if anyone mentions anything about warriors, water-throwers or tree-huggers, it just filters through like white noise. So, there’s some highlighting on Monk news here, including a brief summary:
