Mistweaver News and Vectis Guide

I haven’t had the chance to catch up on some PTR news yet, so I though I’d do a quick summary of the mistweaver changes so far, including an updated summary of the patch 8.1 features. In addition, I’ve added the mythic Vectis guide as well!

Mistweaver PTR Changes (So Far)

Tides of Vengeance Features (Updated)

  • War Campaign continues!
  • Incursions are added (think Legion invasions).
  • New World Quests!

    • Azerite Armor will no longer drop from the weekly chest. Instead a currency will drop with which we can buy azerite tokens (head, shoulders, chest) or specific azerite armor.
    • Disenchanting/scrapping azerite armor will also reward this currency.
    • A second class-specific ring is added to patch 8.1 azerite armor. A.k.a. we can choose 2 spec specific azerite traits per item.

Mistweaver Discussion – My Wish List

This post will be a bit more whimsical than my usual Mistweaver Discussion posts. Today I want to talk about my wish list for the Mistweaver spec. Features that I think would be awesome for the spec and some quality of life improvements. I recommend reading this post with a big cup of tea and a huge bar of chocolate. Though the chocolate is optional.

My wish list is not a please-change-how-mistweavers-fundamentally-work-otherwise-I-might-die kind of list. I actually think that Mistweavers are in a good spot right now. Sure, we have some weaknesses. Mainly being unable to burst up more than one target unless they are all stacked on you. We also have a problem with that most of our healing is active healing, or in other words we have to keep pushing buttons to make heals happen. As soon as we stop button-mashing, the healing will stop (as opposed to shields and HoTs). But that is part of Mistweavers weaknesses, and we have other strengths that compensate for that. It is good that we, or in fact all of the healers specs, have weaknesses when it comes to raiding. We are meant to work as a team, compensate each other and become better together. The team composition is more important than the single person. But on to the list!
