My guild has started Mythic Uldir this week, after having cleared Heroic a second time. I have healed through the Taloc encounter and MOTHER (not dead yet, but 5% there!) so I have been able to write down my mistweaver strategies for these encounters. Please have a look below!
I must say, it’s been a joy to come back to mythic raiding. Mistweavers are strong and there’s constant damage to heal through, as opposed to normal/heroic where the unit frames bounces up and down at all times (may the best sniper win!).

After months of work, I’ve finally finished my Uldir guide. It took a while, mostly because there were so many changes between Beta and live, so I had to wait before I’ve run through normal and heroic difficulties on live before I could do the finishing touches. But here it is!

Uldir Normal & Heroic
I’ll probably add a few more mistweaver-specific tips as I go along, but now the basics are there at least. I tentatively plan to add mythic guides as well, hopefully my guild will progress fast enough to make them relevant.
I’m working on several projects at the same time and since guides takes forever to produce, I don’t have a clear timeline. I have barely started on my next Patreon UI (hunter one), I need to update the Advanced Mistweaving guide, I have several secret projects running as well. It’s a lot! Here’s to strong tea and whiskey, cheers!
After finally having some video material of two clears of the wholly Mythic Dungeons, I’ve finally been able to finish the guides for these two: King’s Rest and Siege of Boralus. Both are mythic-only and are unlocked through the War Campaign. If you’re heading there, take a look at my guides!

I’ve been doing some housecleaning in the teahouse and I’ve realized that some pages must be canned due to irrelevance. The Legion pages doesn’t have any bearing on today’s game. But instead of throwing them out the window, I’ve decided to keep them in a new Legacy tab, where I also archived my old Warlords of Draenor pages.

My blog is a constant work in progress, and I have a whole list of things I want to go through. For example, I want to update every single page for BFA, but also sort out the outdated pages. The standard procedure is that I remove the expansion-specific pages by changing their status from published page to a draft, and then they rest in my archive forever. But now I thought, maybe some people could still have use of all that content, so I’m gonna let it stay published.

The world launch of Battle for Azeroth is here in a few minutes! I won’t rant on for long, I just wanted to give you a few helpful links and wish you luck on your levelling!
Battle for Azeroth Mistweaver Changes
Basic Mistweaving Strategy
Monk Icon HUDs
There will be BFA dungeon guides up on the blog in the coming days (knock on wood) as well. Otherwise, I’ll be preoccupied with levelling. I wish you good luck and all the best, see you on the other side! ♥
I have a weird obsession with alchemy and herbalism. It might have to do with all the colorful icons and fun effects you can play around with, but on occasion alchemy can be a real lifesaver. And I’m not talking about saving money on battle potions and flasks, but on all the great utility potions you can create. So I’ve made a list of my favourite potions I’m gonna stack for the BFA launch!
BFA Launch Must-Haves
- Stack at least one of the following speed potions:
- Stack at least one of the following invisibility potions:
- Water-related Potions:

I have finally taken the time to update the way, way, way outdated Weakaura School. Now it’s finally relevant for this patch’s (and expansion’s) content. I’ve revamped it so that it’s no longer a text guide, it’s a video guide now. Because frankly, video is such an easier medium for teaching about addons. I hope you agree!
Right, so they are videos I’ve uploaded on Youtube. For the first lesson, you can find the video resources on its blog page (click on the images to follow the links).
Sidenote: I’ve also updated the Custom Texture Aura page for this patch. The auras were a little broken after all the talents had swapped around!
I’ll probably do more lessons when I have the time for it. I have a vague idea to make a video of how my UIs work (many uninitiated ask about it), maybe some auras that are based on DBM announces. There’s a lot to cover, so if you have ideas of what you want to learn, let me know in the comments below!
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 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:
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!
