A new beta build for Legion is live! Mistweavers has spun around in the tuning-tumbler and we’ve come out on the other side with a few buffs and a few nerfs. We are also getting closer to the pre-patch; I know I can feel the heat at least. Here are a few tips for your to-do list!
There are a few things you should do before the pre-patch hit live servers, namely: finish the legendary questline if you’re still on it, get more gold out of your garrison because those missions will be gone, and acquire Challenge Mode gold for Draenor. Not only will you get transmog, but also those nifty portals to the dungeon entrances. I still use mine to Pandaria on occasion!
When the pre-patch hits live servers we will get to enjoy seeing a million Demon Hunters flying around (for those who pre-purchased), everyone will go transmog-crazy and do every legacy raid instance known to human-kind, there will be a minor breakdown from everyone who play a class that has gone through major changes, and then a bigger breakdown for those who believe that the broken damage and healing will remain the same for level 110 as well, and it’ll generally be a derailed, crazy party until Legion launches at August 30th.
Do you feel prepared? If not; here’s a mini-guide to Mistweavers at least, by yours truly:
And here are the latest changes for Mistweavers on the Legion beta:
- Renewing Mist now
- heals for 700% of spell power, down from 750%
- has a 4% chance to increase the healing of the next Vivify by 40%, down from 50%
- costs 2.8% of base mana, up from 2.5%.
- Revival now heals for 720% of Spell Power, up from 600%.
- Rising Sun Kick now costs 2.3% of base mana, up from 2%.
- Vivify now heals for 275% of spell power, up from 250%.
- Invoke Chi-Ji, the Red Crane now heals for 180% of spell power per tick, up from 150%.
- Lifecycles now reduces the mana cost of Enveloping Mist and Vivify by 20%, up from 15%.
I usually refrain from commenting too much on tuning, because a) it goes up and down so much that what is true now is not necessarily true the next week and b) I still don’t have beta, so I have basically done no consistent testing (other than borrowing another’s account for a short while) so my commentary on the specifics of Mistweavers is limited. But I can summarize the changes, smile and nod at the buffs and frown menacingly at the nerfs. That is the extent of my commentary at this given point. Have I mentioned that I really want Legion right now? Yesterday would have been too late.
On a completely different note, I’m almost ready to show a sneak peek of June’s Patreon interface art! It’s blue and stormy, perfect for this all-too hot summer.
