how come mastery is so low when it heals off most of the spells we use?

It doesn't effect a large part of our output (Extend Life, Revival, Chi-ji and Life Cocoon), and is about equal healing wise per stat point compared to crit for spells that it does effect.

The only spell where mastery outscales other stats is effuse, and effuse is a rarely used spell in a raid enivronment.

yea after playing around with it a bit on ptr with crit being my main focus i saw that it benefits all spells while mastery procs only from some and the ehal it self would not be that much of a boost if i focus on mastery as if the gust of must will crit it will heal for more

1 question suplift: if we take life cycles we dont really fistweave but just use RSK every 10 sec, right? i mean without SotC there is no point in dealing dmg (except during downtime ofc).

What do you think about Vuh'do as a healing add on? 

Personally, I love it. Definitely worth using. 

You can check out an in-depth post on Vuhdo from our Shaman mod, Pandacho.

Yeah that's correct. The alternative would be to just channel soothing mist in your downtime.

It doesn't interrupt soothing mist to my knowledge.

I used vuh'do all the way up to MoP. Really liked it. These days i'm using elvui raid frames because I personally like the style of elvui. 

 

By the way i'm just going to say it in this post, if I miss your question it's not because i'm ignoring you :p.

I just tried this and you are right, it does interrupt both. But, as far as I can tell, it's not supposed to do that, so it's probably a bug. I'll add a mention about it just in case. Thanks!

"There is a pet bar that allows you to control the pet and decide specifically who to heal." 

I do not have this on my Crane. I don't use addons or anything so maybe it was removed?

You don't have the pet bar at all? That's really strange, since I just tested and I have it on both Beta and live. I'd have said an addon is interfering but... since you don't use any, that's just strange.

I just checked it too and the pet bar definitely exists even with other addons installed.

i am a bit confused about our melee immunity in legion/prepatch

i keep hearing different things about it

1 site/youtube channel says we lose our melee immunity and another  saying we keep it (that would make more sense considering our dps abilities are melee after all

so does any 1 have any type of confirmation about this tiny issue?

The last blue post I found (Feb 18, 2016) states that MW monks will be treated as all the other healers (ranged) in Legion:

On the other hand, imagine a debuff that requires you to move away from other players for a short time or move to a certain location. In many cases, we exempt melee DPS from such abilities not because it would wipe the raid, but merely because reducing their effectiveness to near-zero for many seconds would be overly frustrating. We are much less concerned about asking Mistweavers or Holy Paladins to respond to these kinds of mechanics, because they can still use most of their abilities and be reasonably effective while briefly out of melee. In these cases they'd simply be handling the same mechanics that other healers were required to handle.

I kind of dislike that fact, allthough i can totally understand Blizzard why they changed it.

After the patch was released i started with Focused Thunder as talent but switched to Rising Thunder pretty quickly and i have to say, i enjoy it. Also it made Lifecycles completly irrelevant since most of the Vivify i use don't cost any mana anyway. Mist Wrap is also so much cooler in general.

All in all i can say, that i never really had any problems with my mana, even in more problematic situations. I've only raided a single time with that char yet, but still my experience was that i healed more than or at least about the same as the other monk in the raid group, even tho his GS was about 10 more points than mine and he wasn't feastweaving at all.

And I'm not fond of sitting in the backline for 2 minutes at Socrethar thanks to the stupid Gift of the Man'ari. It just completly severs the Rising Thunder Talent :/

(Yes, i can change the talents for fights like that but still not happy^^)

Hey,

I use a very nice mistweaving add on that is called "mistweaver" :)

With this add on u can watch all important CDs and Hots. Especially for those, who don't want to revamp their whole HUD with ElvUI or who are still overwhelmed by VuDo's control panel (like myself), it is nice and easy to use alternative. 

What do u think about that one?

Looks cool^^

I personally installed Class Mods a few days ago, mainly to better keep track of the totems as Elemental since i forgot to recast them very often and it also helps me a lot with my Survival Hunter since i have to pay Attention to the number of stacks on the buffs, etc.

In general i fell in love with that addon pretty quickly.

Yes.  Which trinket is better from Legion mythic dungeons, craft, maybe we need alchemy/darkmoon trinket to prepare for raid. And after raid launch: which better from Emeral Nightmare

      Blizzard agrees that earning Azerite Armor in Mythic+ feels overly based on luck and in Tides of Vengeance, players will have more control over the Azerite gear they earn through Mythic+.
      Blizzard is adding a new currency in Patch 8.1, which you'll earn from your weekly Mythic+ chest and from scrapping and disenchanting epic-quality Azerite Armor. The weekly chest will no longer reward Azerite Armor. Thaumaturge Vashreen will be selling caches that reward a random dungeon Azerite Armor piece for a given slot that will be separated by item level.
      To give players even more control over Azerite Armor, Vashreen will also offer ilvl 385 versions of the specific dungeon Azerite Armor pieces for each class, sold at premium.
      Only Azerite Armor scrapped in 8.1 will yield the new currency. Vashreen's wares will increase accordingly when the second Mythic+ season starts.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Couple quick clarifications based on feedback so far: Only Azerite Armor that drops after Tides of Vengeance is released will scrap/disenchant into the new currency. Don't worry about hoarding the Azerite pieces you're earning now. When the next Mythic+ season starts, and item levels increase, the item levels of Thaumaturge Vashreen's wares will increase accordingly. We recognize that PvPers want more options and choice too. We're talking about that separately. Check out our Tides of Vengeance content hub for the latest Patch 8.1 information.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Throughout the discussions regarding Azerite Armor, there’s been a lot of talk about how you earn Azerite pieces from Mythic+ dungeons. Players have told us – and we agree – that the process of earning Azerite Armor through Mythic+ feels overly based on luck, and that there isn’t enough control in the players’ hands. Even with our bad luck protection systems in place, the sheer number of potential Azerite pieces you can get from the weekly chest means that trying to get ahold of a specific piece feels hopeless. That’s a problem we want to solve, and give you some control over the Azerite gear you earn through Mythic+. So here’s what we’re working on for Tides of Vengeance:
      First, we’re adding a new (as yet unnamed) currency, which you’ll earn from your weekly Mythic+ chest as well as from scrapping (or disenchanting) epic-quality Azerite Armor. This currency is rewarded in addition to the item in the chest (which can no longer be an Azerite piece), and the amount you earn will scale up exponentially based on the highest level Keystone you’ve completed. For example, completing a level 10 Keystone will reward you with about three times as much as clearing a level 7. Similarly, scrapping higher-item-level Azerite pieces will give you significantly higher amounts of this currency than lower-level pieces.

      To spend that currency, we’re bringing back an old friend: Thaumaturge Vashreen. He’ll have two main types of items for sale. The first are caches that reward a random dungeon Azerite Armor piece for a given slot (helm, shoulders, or chest). They’ll be separated out by item level as well (at 355, 370, and 385), with higher item level caches requiring significantly more currency to purchase. But we recognize that with six or more options per slot, this may still not be enough control for high-end players who want to be able to work towards a specific piece that perfectly complements their build. Thus, Vashreen will also offer Item Level 385 versions of the specific dungeon Azerite Armor pieces for each class, sold at a premium.
      We’re still nailing down the exact numbers, but our goal for tuning this new currency is that you’ll be able to purchase one of the Azerite caches that lines up roughly with the item level of the gear you’re getting from your Mythic+ runs every two or three weeks, with the specific 385 pieces as long-term goals for top players.
      Overall, we believe that this change will improve things in a lot of different ways:
      Mythic+ players of all skill levels will now have a clear path to upgrading their Azerite slots High-end Mythic+ players will have a way to target specific Azerite pieces to optimize their setups Duplicate or unwanted Azerite pieces from other sources (such as raiding) now have some additional value The piece of gear in your weekly chest will have a more reliable item level You should see all of this hitting the Tides of Vengeance PTR sometime in the next week or so. We really do appreciate your feedback, and believe that this, in addition to the new traits and other improvements coming to the Azerite system in Tides of Vengeance, will help ease a lot of the concerns about Azerite Armor in Mythic+ and as a whole.

      Blizzard buffed Chain Heal and redesigned High Tide in this week's 8.1 Build 28151.
      UPDATE
      Blizzard (Source)
      Quick update: the buff will have a longer duration in the next build. It is intended to be less of a "press button when it lights up" proc, and more something you can plan to use. This also should take stress off of knowing exactly when it will trigger (which is not something we want the talent to be about micromanaging). Chain Heal
      Received a healing increase, baking in most of the value of the previous High Tide that has been redesigned. High Tide
      OLD: Chain Heal bounces to 1 additional target, and its falloff with each bounce is reduced by half. NEW: Every 150 mana you spend brings a High Tide, making your next 2 Chain Heals heal for an additional 20% and not reduce with each jump. Check out our Tides of Vengeance hub for the latest Patch 8.1 information!
      Blizzard (Source)
      Just to avoid any confusion that may be occurring due to tooltips on PTR: Chain Heal's base functionality is unchanged, other than receiving a large healing increase (roughly speaking, baking in most of the value of the previous High Tide). High Tide is redesigned, but is still a passive--the mana cost in the tooltip header is an error. Brief context: as a passive buff to every Chain Heal, High Tide was putting it in an awkward position where the base skill wasn't very prominent in the toolkit if you used other talents. The goal here is to both put Chain Heal back on the map while using Ascendance or Wellspring in any type of content, and also provide a talent option which allows for strong moments centered around very large Chain Heals.
      Usual PTR disclaimers: still under iteration, open to feedback, not necessarily tuned.

      The clear was completed in 29 minutes and 17 seconds.
