I'll start of with saying that nerfs to the Mistweavers were necessary cos we were quite op. Maybe not that much with priests spirit shells and the retarderd pala pvp gear eternal flame spam but lets just not go there
So we recieved nerfs, all deserved and well. Some a bit weird with increasing mana costs from spells and then making mana tea crit. Why spend time to change this while this is not really the problem.
But my problem with the nerfs is why remove 1 spread from renewing mists? The spreading from renewing mists was bad enough as it was from a 25man pov.
Having it spread to people you dont really want it on and just being really slow.
But yeah at the same time renewing mists was also the fun thing about monks, using thunder focus tea so it spreads to allmost everyone and then uplift like there is no tomorrow. This is still somewhat viable but using uplift without spreading first with thunder focus tea is just utter shit.
So what I just encountered while doing Empress hc, I was doing about 65k HPS about 30k less then last week(while disc priest and pala were still doing 90kish but ok). The fun part of that encounter for me was uplifting like a maniac with jabbing the boss alot and thus having shitloads of chi.
But today I couldnt do that anymore, I was obligated to just chi burst the melee because the spread from renewing mists was retarded.
And what else should I do? Monks are aoe healers I could hardly heal ranged anymore, if they didnt have renewing mists on them they would recieve no healing at all. Or am I now supposed to single target heal them? dafuq is this.
So my point is that with the nerf of the renewing mists spread uplift became kind of shitty aswell. Which makes the class alot less fun on alot of bosses.
