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!).
With my very own alpha access, I can now test the new features whenever I get the urge. One of the most fun experiences is testing dungeons and since the dawn of Mythic+, knowing your ins and outs of the dungeons have never been more relevant. That’s why I have been writing new and fresh guides!
I actually have had Dungeons guides on the blog before, way back in Warlords of Draenor. My old guideslooked something like this:
They took forever to make and I remember feeling very burnt out after creating those. Not to mention that there were several other guides that were much better and came out a faster pace. Lastly, it was Warlords of Draenor which didn’t have Mythic+, so they became obsolete very fast (unless you did Challenge Mode, which wasn’t very popular, especially for Mistweavers back then).
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!
Stand 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.
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.
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:
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:
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 :)
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.
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.
I’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;
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!
I’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!
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!
*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”.
