Talent "Fatal touch" that reduce the cd of touch of death to 1 min still bugged/doesn't works on the latest beta build
monks looking good or if not good, then fun.
Imagine writing something useful as a class writer. No mentions of yu'lon with enveloping mist mana reduction, no mentions of yu'lon with 1 minute cd. He creates a build with vivify spam, which is good, but he does not take mana tea for it, or even spirit of the crane for mana restore, even tho mistweaver has a serious issue of ooming, because we have no mana regeneration cd. Playing with clouded focus over ancient teaching of the monastery is an interesting choice, it is forcing us to play caster in melee, with a fistweaving build, which is bad. He does not take thunder focus tea either, so basically we have no double free -big- vivify, or double extension with rising sun kick. I do not even know, why does he want to play with overflowing mist in a raid environment, spamming enveloping mist with no mana restoring cd is just awful, whether we play yu'lon, or not.In his m+ build, he plays zen pulse, but he does not buff it with zen reverbation, even though he plays overflowing mist, this is just lacking the free healing or mostly damage, which is bad in m+.I do not like, that we have a class writer, who suggests totally bad/not enough build for Mistweaver, with not giving a single f to the spec. And this is not his first time doing this, I have a few screenshot of this kind of behaviour, like putting a mail belt as our bis for a little ammount of time, and things like this. There are many stronger builds for raiding and mythic plus in our class discord.I strongly think, and suggest, that we receive a class writer, who actually plays the spec -in higher end content-.
No, I just do not agree with bad talent combinations and bad synergies, and bad class writing, that is all.
If Overflowing Mists talent works the same way it did in BFA then there's no way in hell you'd sacrifice 10% of a stat of your choice for 3% max HP heal on ICD.
Rising Mist is a core part of our playstyle both in M+ and in raid. there is no world where I really see us not talenting Rising Mist, at least for M+ every single time.
Imagine not taking Rising Mists in a world where you get A LOT of Rising Sun Kicks in M+ due to how Faeline Stomp interacts with the fistweaving. PTR is out for testing and you are able to almost exclusively fistweave due to how many procs you can get in AoE. Also, since while in Faeline Stomp you duplicate Tiger's Palm on another target, Spirit of the Crane isn't THAT bad anymore and requires a whopping 1 point for fairly decent amount of mana throughout a key.Overflowing Mists will pretty much never be worthwhile enough to take since 3% healing on a ICD just isn't good and that is AFTER taking 2 points in it. Rising Mists will keep your random HoTs up for maintenance healing on the group and allow pretty much all the healing from Teachings (a Blackout Kick that hits 3 times on 3 targets is a huge heal) to go into the tank making the negligible healing from Overflowing Mists absolutely redundant.
Summon Jade Serpent Statue should heal 2 others and wherever placed Fistweaving heals should heal targets also within range of the statue by 20 yrds.Soothing Mist will allow renewing mists to be used as well during channel and I think the mana usage should be cheaper when using effuse/ and enveloping mists. Allow soothing mist to be channeled while moving but at a slower pace.
I was very disturbed by the wording on the article, as I noticed the writer had a very clear personal predilection for playstile. I Just wanted to comment that Soothing Mist gameplay is actually enjoyed by mamy players and it is nourishing to see it get some love from Blizz. If tuning is made right, we may have a good playstile pathing for those that do not like fistweaving that much. Very good thorughput can be squeezed with Jade Serpent Statue talents, Clouded Focus and Unison, aside from the other buffs.
Overflowing mists is pretty bad, shouldn't be telling people to take it.Edit - And nourishing Chi?
Reading this I thought the author didn't play MW, but I found your character and you in fact do play the spec. I see you are active within the Peak of Serenity Discord too. This furthers my confusion as you are aware of what other MW players are discussing.There are some very weird choices here. For example, your Mythic Plus build opts for 2 points in Overflowing Mists, there are much better choices for where those 2 points could be spent. Rising Mist, Zen Reverberation, Mana Tea and Spirit of the Crane to name a few. I agree with what other commenters have posted regarding your odd choices for talents in both builds.I think if you're going to have a public profile posting about MW you should have better MW players give you feedback before you post an article. The suboptimal choices here could mislead players, hurt your reputation as an author, and cause players to disregard your opinion.
These comments are really showing people don't know why they use the talents they do at the moment, what makes them good or why the new additions available in the talent tree might make some old favourites less desirable in certain content. SL MW has taken an almighty toll on the braincells.Anomoly isn't saying Clouded Focus is the play because that's what he would enjoy playing. It's because the talent, with all of our new/returning rem interactions, is extremely strong in comparison to atotm. I don't think most people are particularly excited at the prospect of CF, I know I'm not. But that doesn't mean, as things currently stand, that it's not just the better option in a lot of raid situations.
I understand, it is for Vivify cleave, butFirst of all: You did not even take mana regeneration/reduce. You start with 100% mana cost Vivify, 85% , 70% and of course, 55%. Without an innervate, you will burn a significant ammount of mana. It is basically Yu'lon right now in a raid environment, which is a huge jebait. Right now this is 28,32% of your mana without mana tea in a 10 second interval (3,8*0,85+3,8*0,7+3,8*0,55*6 + soothing mist for 8 sec is 3,2% +3,8*0,85 + 3,8*0,7+ soothing mist for 2 sec is 0,8% ), whereas with mana tea this is just 19% (3,8/2*10). This is just basic maths.So, this can be good with mana tea, because it is 50% reduction of the original cost, which is big. And I know, your rotation after spreading Renewing Mist is Transcendence and and back with empowered escape from reality, and you will start Vivify on yourself. This could be good, but you need at least the mana tea. Second of all: You play with overflowing mist with the Yu'lon build which is alright again, but, if you start hardcasting enveloping mist with 3% of max mana with every usage, you will oom once again. Even if you say, that theoritically you start ramping up Yu'lon before a mechanic, there is a big chance, this will be overhealing very much. OOM with overheal is just sad. Third of all: You did not even take TFT for RSK/ or even for free Vivify, but you chose Secret infusion. Two empowered spell with empowered stats are better, than just one, right?. Swapping Overflowing mist for TFT AND for Mana tea could lead to a Vivify cleave playstyle, which is playing a caster in melee. Fourth of all: You tend to play with heavy dmg output talents, such as the White Tiger Statue, or RSK buffs. Imagine doing relatively big damage, which costs mana, but basically healing nothing from the damage dealt. I'd heavily suggest to swap CF with ATOTM and you will be able to do the vivify cleave (with mana tea ofc) and to fistweave. Fifth of All: You are saying, that you do not want to use Essence Font for big aoe heals, but you take the Font of Life talent. Sixth of All: I really don't understand, why do you want to channel soothing mist on yourself, because Vivify is instant either way, and you are just burning mana with the channel. CF with Soothing mist channel, without mana restore/reduction is just wasting mana.In my playstyle I would actually swap Font of Life with Spirit of the Crane, because you want to fistweave, if you are not doing the vivify cleave (and) or the Yu'lon cleave, because, in a raid without extra support, you will just oom very quickly without restoring, or reducing mana.Lastly, I think, the Vivify cleave can actually be good, but just not with these talents, You displayed, because it lacks the sustainability not only for a longer fight, but for a 5 minute encounter aswell.
