Mistweaver Rising Mist Hotfix - Postponed
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
We’ve seen the emergence of a Mistweaver build that does a great amount of healing using Rising Mist, and we’re working on a hotfix to address it.

When we buffed Rising Mist with the intention of making melee Mistweaver a viable playstyle, players discovered that stacking extreme amounts of haste and cooldown reduction can reach a breaking point of infinite duration on your heal-over-time effects. Even though it’s exciting to see people discover new builds and interactions, the sheer power level in this case is likely to have a negative effect on the healing game for the remainder of Battle for Azeroth.

This change is intended to prevent the infinite extension, while allowing Rising Mist to still enable an effective melee playstyle.

Edited – April 20 12:30 p.m. PDT
We’re iterating on this change at this time, and holding off making the change previously listed here until we’ve tested other possible solutions.

Thank you!

    Why, though? Rajani and Uldum Accord are the slowest grinds in BFA since they don't get any of the WQ rep buffs, and they really don't have any notable rewards for hitting Exalted anyway.

    Of course, the day this comes out I get the final Paragon toy I'm missing in BfA [the jukebox off Voldenai]...

    Got to power level this Human Mage to do the collectibles on opposite faction.

    I am 100% aware that this is "get a hand, ask for the whole arm" thing, but I'm bummed that the rep buff isn't for all expansions' reps, including vanilla WoW. It'd help get motivated to get the PvP reps, for one. >.>

    I ~barely~ do dailies and I'm well past Revered on my main. The biggest benefit of both of these factions -- the Essence -- is R3. Since R3 is already account wide and most people have nothing to spend Echoes on anyway, it makes sense that they're excluding these reps. Plus, at the very least it keeps players engaged with the newest content. It's easy to just say "FUCK YOU BLIZZARD" but if you apply critical thinking it really isn't that far fetched.

    Seen people say it does work with paragon, so I'm definitely looking forward to faster caches, and to max out my recently leveled characters.

    Seriously, what is the problem with a rep buff at the end of an expansion. The XP and REP buff just gets new players in, how is that an issue?

    It would have been nice if this buff extended to all reputations. But no matter. I'll take what I can get.

    I was referring to them backing down with the mistweaver-nerf.

    But nice meme-work. You seem like a cool internet hero!

    Why does Mark of Prey for Talon's Vengeance rep not get the bonus? It says it only excludes Rajani and Uldum Accord.

    Where did you use rep token? Buff say it works on Broken Isles/Argus/Zandalar/Kul Tiras but don't specify WHICH rep. I also wonder what happen if I would use other rep tokens (like for WoD reputation).

    Overall buff gives lot of money on my main. You get Paragon chest for Mechagon every 4 days doing daily ~10 minutes each time, emissary takes even less. People with multiple exalted toons must have gold mine.
