Why are you suggesting to enchanting mastery?

i agree, why not haste instead? Higher in stat importance. Interesting that Greater Haste and Superior Haste are exactly the same.

There seems to be a mistake in the rotation section.

 

Here https://www.icy-veins.com/wow/mistweaver-monk-pve-healing-rotation-cooldowns-abilities#sec-1-2 you recommend using Blackout Kick to dump Chi while keeping up the Tiger Palm buff, while here https://www.icy-veins.com/wow/mistweaver-monk-pve-healing-rotation-cooldowns-abilities#serpents-zeal the opposite is recommended.

WTH? Yesterday i replaced a lot of gems for crit as recommended by AskMrRobot for my mistweaver, and today its recommending a buttload of spirit gems instead!!! A little clarification? With crit being the top secondary stat and spirit at the bottom, I think that was flawed advice, or am I wrong? Argh, not doing it, i think AskMrRobot is having issues, lol. Think i will hold off and give them a few days to figure out what they are doing. With that said, my poor balance druid was struggling to kill turtles on Timeless yesterday, but today after regemming per AMR recommendations, i was back to my awesome owl status and killing them with a couple of shots! Bam!

Mr. Robot has no spirit cap, and if you're decently geared you won't be having mana issues in 6.0.2. I put a strict cap on the spirit. Mr. Robot will never recommend primary stat gems because primary stats were nerfed, so you get 2x secondary (haste, crit) vs primary (int). Also this comment about chi sphere: "If the raid is stacked up, and players are often dropping below 35% health, this ability can be quite good. That said, you should not be choosing this talent." makes no sense.

It's a little unclear on whether or not a MW should switch to crane stance+blackout kick specifically for the 20% crit boost before switching back to serpent stance, when in the middle of a moderate-damage fight. Could you clarify on this?

In the Stat Explanations section, inv_pet_jadeserpentpet.jpgJade Mists should be noted as a multistrike benefit.

 

Also inv_glyph_majormonk.jpgGlyph of Detoxing should be listed in the glyph section as it is useful if you have to dispel 2 people in a very short period of time.

So it's no loger advised to gem for primary stats?

 

That is correct.

Thank you, I'll add both!

IMO

You should attempt to keep a high uptime on the Zeal buff to increase your healing over the fight.

 

If in the period of time when you are switching to keep the buff active you need to emergency heal a player that requires serpent stance then you would heal the player before refreshing the buff. This is more of a know your fight mechanics thing than a generic answer.

 

If you know you can switch stances, gain the buff then switch back and no major damage/healing is required then you you would of course maintain the buff.

I have tried to use BOK on test dummies to gain the crit buff and I always lose it when flopping back to Serpent. Last night on Garrosh, I swear my WA buff watcher showed the buff stayed up. Would anyone be able to help comment on this? Are we supposed to stance dance for buffs and the dummies are glitched or is this the desired effect? Blizz never mentioned dropping buffs when flopping stances, only chi... Anyone?

Upon further research it appears that the buff dropping on stance change is intended.

Tweet conversation between Suplift and Celestalon.

 

@Celestalon @Reglitch_ Will crane zeal be lost if you switch between the stances? I can see stance dancing to maintain 100% uptime

 

@Suplift Yes.

 

So no stance dancing for 100% uptime :(

Your stats are listed:

1. Multistrike

2. Critical Strike

3. Intellect

4. Versatility

5. Haste

6. Mastery

 

No mention of Spirit at all, then down below in the "Statistics Explanations":

Intellect is your primary stat. You should look for this stat in all of your upgrades...

Spirit increases your mana regeneration. You should always aim to have items with spirit...

 

The order you've listed your stats in contradicts your explanation. I can understand not putting spirit above crit, because spirit is apparently only available on trinkets, rings, neck, but certainly Intellect needs to be #1 in the stat priority list.

 

Just my $.02. Maybe I'm wrong?

Intellect is, as we said, your primary stat. You want that in all your upgrades. As in, you never ever want to get an item without Intellect. This information is, if anything, redundant, because as a Mistweaver you're never going to pick up an item that doesn't have Intellect, probably even if we never mentioned it. Once you're looking at an item with Intellect on it, then you decide based on the stat priority.

 

Spirit isn't on the list because it doesn't logically fit on it. It cannot be given a "weight" as other stats can be. It depends on your comfort level with your mana regeneration, but the safe bet (at least for a good while longer) is to get all the Spirit items you can.

Currently it says that RJW costs no mana to use, which is false. Please change this!

While it seems as though the guide is well-made (I don't see many issues with it), your section on Vital Mists is outdated.


Vital Mists is a buff you get when spending Chi in Stance of the Spirited Crane. It stacks up to 5 times, reducing the mana cost and cast time of Surging Mist by 20% per stack. Spending one chi grants you one stack of Vital Mists. Therefore, using Blackout Kick grants two stacks of Vital Mists, and using a 4-chi Chi Explosion grants you 4 stacks.

Your section on Vital Mists still has the outdated means of generation - solely through Tiger Palm. Tiger Palm still generates stacks, but it's worth it to note that all chi uses within Stance of the Spirited Crane. generate stacks.

That's all! ^_-

It does? Isn't that just a consequence of your mana pool being bigger, since Mana Tea just restores 4% of your maximum mana?

Hello!

Thank you very much. I don't really understand how that happened. I'm updating the guide now.

      It's time to find out what awaits us in Patch 8.2.5 which is now available for playtesting on Public Test Realms.
      Welcome to our Patch 8.2.5 content hub. We will be frequently updating it with links to our latest news coverage.
      Patch 8.2.5 Release Date Speculuation
      Based on the datamined Vulpera mug icon, it's safe to assume that the Allied Race will go live before next Brewfest, which is on or before September 20th.
      Allied Races
      While no Allied Races have been confirmed for Patch 8.2.5, we're speculating that Blizzard is adding Mechagnomes and the Vulpera of Vol'dun this time around.
      The Future of Allied Races Vulpera Coming in Patch 8.2.5 New Goblin and Worgen Models
      Blizzard is adding new models for both races introduced back in Cataclysm. Blizzard confirmed that there will be no Heritage Armor in 8.2.5.
      Goblin and Worgen Models Preview Celebrate 15 Years of Warcraft
      November 2019 marks the 15th anniversary of World of Warcraft, and players who log in during the event period will receive a celebration package in the mail with a Lil' Nefarian pet and other in-game goodies. Throughout the duration of the event, you’ll be able to participate in three unique raids with iconic encounters from past expansions along with an old-school-inspired Alterac Valley battleground. Players who defeat all nine bosses in the raid wings will receive the Obsidian Worldbreaker, a Black Dragonflight mount inspired by Deathwing. Players who participate in Alterac Valley will receive a new anniversary event currency which can be exchanged for two new mounts: the Stormpike Battle Charger (Alliance) and the Frostwolf Snarler (Horde).
      Obsidian Worldbreaker Mount Preview Frostwolf Snarler & Stormpike Battle Charger Mount Preview 15th Anniversary Alabaster Mounts Honeyback Harvester (Bee Mount)
      Alliance players will finally be able to get their hands on the long-awaited Bee mount (Honeyback Harvester)
      Where Is My Bee Mount? New Timewalking Raid: Firelands
      When Cataclysm Timewalking is active, max-level players will be able to form raid groups and enter the Sulfuron Spire once more. As with previous Timewalking raids (Black Temple, Ulduar), your gear and power are scaled to the challenge, and all the bosses and rewards you expect lie in wait.
      Party Sync
      Blizzard is experimenting with a new mode in the forthcoming patch that makes it easier for players in a party to do quests and play together: Party Sync. When players activate Party Sync, everyone in the party becomes aligned to the same quest state, including phases. By mousing over a quest in your tracker, you can see who is on the quest, what their progress is, and who’s ready to turn in the quest. There’s something else we’re going to try out on the PTR, a “replay” quest feature. This will allow players who have already completed certain quests to replay those quests with their friends for rewards that are appropriate to their current level, regardless of the original level of the quest.
      They're also relaxing level restrictions on queueing for instanced content with your friends. This allows lower-level players to queue for content in their level range, and higher-level players can choose to join them by having their level scaled down while they’re in the instance. This feature will be available for dungeon instances for PTR Week 1, with PvP instances being flagged in the following weeks. Please note that unlike Timewalking, when your level is scaled down via Party Sync you will temporarily lose access to abilities and powers (such as Azerite traits) with requirements that exceed your reduced level.
      Recruit A Friend Returns
      Coming in 8.2.5 is a revamped Recruit A Friend system. If you have active game time you’ll be able to recruit your friends—both brand-new to the game and returning champions—to share in your adventures. To do so, you’ll be able to use a new URL generation tool to create a custom link to give to your friends. By following the link, you’ll be connected to each other and will be able to see if they have purchased game time, resulting in rewards for you! For each month your recruits have active game time, you’ll earn a new reward such as unique pets, mounts, game time and more. These rewards unlock per month and scale with how many months your recruits have subscribed for. And, of course, with Party Sync you’ll be able to journey with your friends on any of your characters. We’ll have more information about Recruit A Friend rewards before 8.2.5 release.

      Sadly, there will be no Heritage Armor added in Patch 8.2.5.
      Both Goblins and the Worgen received new models in Patch 8.2.5, but Blizzard today confirmed that they were no plans for any Heritage Armor questlines, even though the latest MMORPG.com interview claims the direct opposite.
      Blizzard (Source)
      So according to the interview with Morgan Day and Shani Edwards on MMORPG dot com, it was mentioned that the heritage armor sets for worgen and goblins will be landing at the same time as the model upgrades.
      I lack the posting count to have permission to include links in my posts but the article on there is titled “New World of Warcraft 8.2 Info: Tyrande, Sylvanas, Customization, OH MY!” for those who want to go have a look themselves. Here’s a quote, though:
      "Goblin and Worgen fans will be pleased to hear that the long-awaited model update for each will be arriving in a future content patch.
      “Shortly after Rise of Azshara, you’ll see that,” Morgan explained. “These are the two races that haven’t been updated. They’ll have new heritage armor with that as well.”
      Is this still going to be the case? I ask because there was no mention of this in the development notes for the 8.2.5 PTR. Can we get some blue confirmation as to whether or not those plans have changed?
      Hello.
      I can confirm that 8.2.5 does not include any new Heritage Armor questlines
