Bumping the thread for visibility.
I also wanted to address a point made by Antagonistka above:
- The artifact ability - It has nice theme to it, but also a hefty cast time which causes it to often overheal. Would be nice if it triggered Soothing Mist, too
The bolded part is actually currently implemented in the game. However, an actively bugged interaction between Soothing Mist/Sheilun's Gift and Renewing Mist prevents it from working properly under certain conditions. To test this yourself, try the following:
- 1. Cast Effuse, then cast Sheilun's Gift - Soothing Mist will begin channeling
- 2. Cast Renewing Mist, then cast Sheilun's Gift - Soothing Mist will not begin channelling
It's ironic, because this was, pretty much, the only "buff" Mistweaver's got in 7.1 and it ended up not doing anything since it doesn't work most of the time. We can't even "play around" the issue as Renewing Mist is a major part of our "rotation" and using it "on cooldown" is strongly recommended, if not mandatory.
Needless to say, this bug was discovered, thoroughly tested and detailedly reported
Day 1 of the patch (as some of us were mildly excited about the addition and hopped straight into instanced content to play around with it) and has neither been fixed, addressed or even added to any "known bugs" lists that I know of.
This may sound like a huge rant over something very minor, but it's missteps like this that not only lead to further growing annoyance among an already largely ignored part of the community, but also serve to confuse people who are somewhat new to the spec as they are left wondering why their Soothing Mist is randomly activating.
