Teahouse Refurbishment – Updates Galore

I’ll be honest with you, there’s just something incredibly invigorating with Beta-periods. The alpha/beta for Battle for Azeroth has been sent out to several of my friends (not to me, but I can always shamelessly borrow from others) and there’s a sense of newness and adventure in the air. To celebrate, I’ve finally done some well-deserved updates to my poor neglected blog. And with ‘some’ I mean ‘many’.

Legion has been a blast to play, but it has caused a severe burn-out on my blog work. Between playing the game, working and doing everything else, it hasn’t been easy to justify the time needed to maintain a well updated blog. It isn’t until now at the end I finally can find time and inspiration to work on the blog. I’ve missed it a lot.

But I love change, and a new expansion is the biggest change of all in World of Warcraft. So, with new energy and inspiration I’ve finally made a lot of updates on the blog. As you might have noticed, things have moved around on the blog the past days. The Weakaura Hub has been split up to the separate Weakaura and UI Hubs. There are a few new pages and some serious rewrites. Here are the most important changes:

  • NEW: Battle for Azeroth – a new page that is dedicated to the Mistweaver changes that rolls out on the alpha/beta.
  • Mistweaver Talents – Added tags and rewritten.
  • Advanced Mistweaving Guide – Rewritten from scratch and more up to date with the latest Mistweaver strategies.
  • Monk Sets – I’ve updated and streamlined the transmog page with new images to better showcase the different sets. Sorely needed!
  • The Secret Tearoom – This will remain in mystery for a while longer…

I’m not done with all the updates yet. Most notably the UI Philosophy needs to be rewritten, the UI Inspiration page updated and the UI Troubleshooting guide needs several additions and subtractions. There’s a lot more work to be done, but I’ll continue with the revamp.

Weakaura Updates, New Transmogs and More

Time flies when you’re having fun, and I’ve been playing World of Warcraft like crazy. Enough to forget to update the blog as I should. But I will try to rectify that now! Here is the first batch of updates, concerning weakauras and transmog.

Weakaura HUDs for all three Monk specs

New and updated HUDs for all three specs are available here:

Weakaura Hub > WeakAura Library > Mistweaver Icon Auras

Artifact Custom Transmogs

New PvP Page!

I’m stuck in PvP swamp. Which is incredibly fun as a Mistweaver! I’ve set my eyes on high prestige levels to get all the artifact looks and mounts, which resulted in a lot of battleground popping. Since there is very little out there about PvP, I thought I’d write down the little knowledge I have (hence the ‘Basic’ in the name). Hopefully, it’ll help you get started!

Mistweaver Guide > Basic PvP Mistweaving

Admittedly, there are tremendously many great Mistweavers out there that are so much better at me at PvP. However, not much knowledge is written down to easy-to-read guides. For the ones that just need a basic overview, this guide is a great start!

Advanced Mistweaving Page Updated

I know it took forever for me to update the Advanced Mistweaving Strategy guide, but in my defense I had no idea what to write until now and didn’t have the time to sit down and figure it out. This is why vacations are awesome!

This time I expound more on the different styles of healing in Mythic+ vs raiding and how you can improve on both accounts. I also give a more detailed account of mana management, since that is usually a big topic in raid settings. The section of ‘What is a good healer’ from the old guide still has valid principles that can be applied to any healer class, and is therefore still in the guide.

Advanced Mistweaving Strategy

As for my own adventures in a Mistweaving world, my guild is currently progressing Nighthold Mythic. I must say, I infinitely prefer the encounters in Nighthold to those in Emerald Nightmare and Trial of Valor and this may or may not have to do with more opportunity for stack healing. And that I got the Legendary trinket. But just maybe!

New Legendary Page

I haven’t been idle while the blog went down! When Misty Teahouse was in limbo, I decided to write a little about Mistweaver legendaries. Mostly about how they work, since it isn’t always obvious by just reading the description.

New Page: Mistweaver Legendaries

The page is sub-item to “Mistweaver Guide”, so you’ll find it listed there too. I’ve added more detailed descriptions of what the legendaries do, but since I haven’t been able to test all, I had to do some research on the legendaries that I do not own. Hopefully everything’s accurate, otherwise I’ll update it as needed.

Elvui Profile Page Update

I’ve been in a bit of a funk the past weeks. Long story short, I was a bit blue but now I’ve decided to pull myself up by the bootstraps and do things I’ve procrastinated. Step one, update as many blog pages as I can manage between work hours. The Elvui page is quite easy, so I’ve started with that.

Elvui Profile Page

There’s only one profile so far (the old ones were completely outdated). But I’ve added a few more steps and addons to tweak the UI, so it’s a bit more elaborate than before. The guide takes you through each step, so don’t worry if you’re not too familiar with the addons.

I’ll probably add a few more color variations at some point, and maybe a few more textures. But for now, this steel-grey profile works quite elegantly for all classes, if you prefer a more minimalistic style.

UI Inspiration Page Updates

I’ve done a small update on my blog and added new images of my current UI on the UI Inspiration page. Sakresse has also obliged with new and sparkly images of her Legion UI! I want to keep filling the page however, so I will need your help!

UI Inspiration Page

I’m terribly slow at updating my blog pages, I know, but I’m getting there. The UI Inspiration page has gotten a small update now at least. I’ve added my own and Sakresse’s UI, and my Patreon interfaces. You can get inspiration from those and of course my old UIs.

Artifact Page up!

I’ve managed to tear myself away from the game for a short while to finish my artifact page! Here you can find out about the Artifact progress tree, relics, knowledge and all known model appearances!

Mistweaver Guide > Mistweaver Artifact

Get ready to farm those model appearances – they must be all unlocked! I’ve managed to unlock the 4 basic looks myself, but I’m working on my class campaign for the upgraded version, working on empowering my artifact enough to unlock the quest for the Chi-Ji version and err, haven’t gotten around to PvPing yet for the Sha version. But I’ll get there!

WeakAura (Icon) Library Updated

Only half a month to go before Legion – it’s high time to make sure that your UI is on point! I have a string of updates I need to do before launch, and today I can tick on of them off: the Mistweaver Icon Aura Library. I’ve got you covered! 

In my Icon Aura library you can find export strings for all kinds of auras. I have nearly all abilities (shows cooldown of Renewing Mist, Revival, Life Cocoon, etc), good auras for fistweaving (Teachings of the Monastery, Rising Sun Kick), talents (Lifecycles, Mana Tea, etc.) and trackers that shows how many people in your group are affected by ReM and the Essence Font buff. I recommend skinning the icons with the addon Masque and a few extension addons!

Auras: WeakAura Library > Mistweaver Icon Auras
Skins: WeakAura Skins

Mistweaver Guide updated for Patch 7.0

The pre-patch is here! Okay, it’s here for America. Europe has to wait until tomorrow until its launch, but that only means I have an extra day to update my blog. The blog will be renovated for patch 7.0 and Legion the upcoming days, and I’ve already finished the Basic Mistweaving Guide and Talents. Still so many things to do and so little time!

Are you in need of some Mistweaving assistance? Look no further, help is here! I have updated my Basic Mistweaving Guide and Talents section just in time for the pre-patch.

Basic Mistweaving Guide – Explains stat priority, healing toolkit, damage toolkit and rotations to go with them.

Talents – A rundown of all the talents and which to pick in which situation.

I have in mind to edit these continuously as I gain new knowledge myself. Also, they need to be spiced up with some nice illustrations, but all in good time. I still have the following pages to update:
