Patch 7.3: Upcoming Changes to Monk & Hunter T21 Bonuses

Recommended Posts

3wlqoI1.jpg

This week's 7.3 PTR patch will have some Elemental Shaman Changes and adjustments to Tier 21 bonuses for Hunters & Monks. What will be different?

Tier 21 Set Bonus Changes

Blizzard's currently polishing the latest set bonuses and based on community feedback, a future PTR build (coming this week, probably tomorrow) will introduce the following changes to Tier 21 set bonuses:

Beast Mastery / Marksmanship Hunter

Current Beast Mastery T21 Bonuses

Current Marksmanship T21 Bonuses

Upcoming Changes

Some changes you will see in a future PTR build:

The BM Hunter 4p has changed to Kill Command reducing the cooldown of Aspect of the Wild.

The Marksmanship Hunter 4p has changed to just be a way simpler tooltip with roughly the same value, and has swapped places with the 2p. This makes the new 2p a buff to your Focus builders, and the 4p the chance for Marked Shot to shoot a target twice.

Mistweaver Monk

Current Mistweaver T21 Bonuses

Upcoming Change

  • Tranquil MistTranquil Mist (2P Bonus) will be a HoT effect, instead of an absorb

In a future build, the Mistweaver 2p bonus will be a Heal Over Time effect instead of an absorb to allow better interaction with the 4p bonus.

Why do I feel like this makes the 4p set bonus essentially useless.  I mean don't get me wrong Aspect of the Wild is a good skill and extremely beneficial during bestial wrath but it just feels like blizzard felt the previous 4p bonus was too OP and was like how do we fix it... I know let's make it useless.

Also once again as is with every expansion, BM gets some love and then gets less love.  I mean don't get me wrong, BM still does well on some fights and isn't in a terrible spot overall (could use a bit of love) but the previous 4p bonus I felt would allow it to shine quite a bit once again.

Are you kidding me? That is still a really good 4pc. Not only will the extra crit proc call of the wild more often which means more pets, and that increases way of the cobras damage boost, and all that extra focus means more cobra shot spam.

Pretty sure the extra focus should mean more kill command spam specially if you're using Aspect of the Wild properly.  Cobra shot is only a filler and should never be priority.

With the amount of focus you' ll have from both aspect and having more direbeasts out you'll be able to do more. Depending on how much it reduces the CD of aspect by, the extra crit may mean have bestial wrath up 100% of the time (if youre running ring and one with the pact which, you should be) , which means rotation becomes dire beast when it procs, then Cobra, kill command and repeat cause of killer cobra. Which you'll have the focus to do since to the extra dire beasts thanks to wild call and the extra crit, and extra focus gen from aspect.

So, we had Trueshot setbonusses in T19 to buff both AoE+ST (mixed boss fights). Aimedshot in T20 for a lot of ST in Tomb, now Marked Shot and Multishot in T21... Argus raid is going to be full cleave?

Rather see a set bonus which focusses on a spell we can influence instead of hoping marked to proc (outside of trueshot window) to actually be any usefull.....

Unless you're running the AotB build with high crit and low mastery. Works wonders for me when I play it and Cobra Shot is my most used ability along with Dire Beast.

I can see the benefits of this set bonus running Stomp + OwtP "Zoo" build, however that build loses a lot of power if you are not using NH 2 set.

Not entirely, it still has strong potential without. Some theorycrafters are even suggesting 2+2+2 in Argus.

      Il'gynoth returns as a boss in Ny'alotha, the Patch 8.3 raid, and with it comes another round of whispers full of prophecies. What do they entail? This article contains spoilers.
      We fought Il'gynoth back in the Emeral Nightmare and if you played in Legion, chances are you know that his prophecies have manifested themselves later on in Battle for Azeroth. He gave us hints on how Magni would become a pawn, which happened in Rise of Azshara, and much more. Now, he's back in Ny'alotha and his Voice Overs are full of riddles.
      Il'gynoth VO
      We've analyzed all whispers below.
      This refers to Mueh'zala who is also referred to as the Father of Sleep based on WoWWiki. Mueh'zala is the loa of death worshipped by the Sandury Tribe, and likely, Bwonsamdi's boss, whose identity has not been unveiled yet.
      The "Golden One" is Calia Menethil. Although the game did not contain information on how Sylvanas killed her and Calia got raised, 8.3 sound files hint at Calia becoming the new leader of the Forsaken and her plans to reclaim Lordaeron.
      Il'gynoth claims Calia will bring only darkness. This may refer to the events of Patch 9.0 and beyond. Remember, that we faced Il'gynoth as a boss at the beginning of Legion and his prophecies came true just recently in Patch 8.2 Rise of Azshara.
      The Val'kyr have some sort of pact with Sylvanas and it appears they are eager to fulfill her every wish. What that entails remains to be seen.
      "The Vessel of Life" probably refers to the Green Dragonflight. It foreshadows a traitor amidst their ranks. Merithra, the Daughter of Ysera, has seen some screen time in Battle for Azeroth and what the future brings is uncertain as for now.
      The Dragon Aspects have lost their powers after defeating Deathwing and in Battle for Azeroth, they're back helping us against N'Zoth. 
      Patch 8.3 Voice Overs suggest that Sylvanas, who's now wielding Xal'atath, wants to use it against N'Zoth to defeat him. Her deal with Queen Azshara was to bring the champions of the Alliance and the Horde to Nazjatar, and in Visions of N'Zoth, Azshara provides us with valuable information on how to defeat the God of the Deep.
      In World of Warcraft there are six planes (realms of existence). We are the "cunning ones" and it seems we only serve one master, which is death.

      Next, we're checking out the sound files for Queen Azshara and Sylvanas. They both had a bargain and in Patch 8.3, Azshara has the key to defeating N'Zoth. Spoiler alert!
      Earlier today, we looked at sound files of multiple characters, containing spoilers on the future of the Forsaken and their leadership.
      The sound files for Queen Azshara hint at the bargain she had with Sylvanas. Azshara would make both fleets crash to the ocean floor (Nazjatar) in exchange for Xal'atath. We know how that ended when Sylvanas claimed the blade for herself...
      In Patch 8.3, Queen Azshara is tortured by Xanesh in Ny'alotha, the Waking City raid. We defeat the boss, and ultimately, she sides with us and reveals the key to defeating N'Zoth. We learn  that he is the weakest of his kin and the blade can be used to defeat him once and for all, which is how the raid is going to end.

      Our preview of mounts added in World of Warcraft's forthcoming content update continues with the Aqir flying mount.
      Who are the Aqir?
      Aqir Flying Mount
      The source of the mount remains unknown for now. Do you think it will be drop from N'Zoth on Mythic Difficulty?

      After the events of Patch 8.2.5, the Forsaken are looking for a new leader in Visions of N'Zoth. This article contains spoilers.
      In order to learn more about the future of the Forsaken, we've uploaded new VOs to our YouTube channel. Key characters include Jaina Proudmoore, Calia Menethil, Lilian Voss, and Derek Proudmoore.
      Apparently, there will be a meeting in Patch 8.3 between Jaina, Derek, Calia, and Voss. Calia tells Jaina that she decided to leave Kul Tiras for Lordaeron, because Voss asked her for help now that the Forsaken have no leader. Derek wants to join Calia as both have been raised from the dead and have something in common.

      We've analyzed Il'gynoth's new whispers and one seems to have been tailored specifically for Calia Menethil.
      An article with a full analysis will be posted later today. In the meantime, you can check out Il'gynoth's VO below.

      100 Alliance guilds have finally defeated Mythic Queen Azshara and filled The Eternal Palace Mythic Hall of Fame, which means Mythic cross-realm raiding will become available for the raid next week after maintenance.
      Congratulations to Proud Manlets of Kel'Thuzad (US). They're the 100th guild to defeat Mythic Queen Azshara!

      On the opposite side of the spectrum, Horde guilds have filled the Hall of Fame on September 5.
