Another build has been applied to Beta and it comes with its share of nerfs and buffs.
Lets hope some of the errors crashing the client are fixed.
Scroll down below for my thoughts on these latest changes!
New Jade Serpent Statue model!
Spinning Crane Kick – Damage has been reduced by 50%
Chi Burst (New) - You summon a torrent of Chi energy to the target, dealing 1,013 damage, and healing a nearby injured friendly target within 10 yards of the target for x. While casting Chi Burst, you continue to dodge and parry.
Invoke Xuen, the White Tiger (New) - Invokes the White Tiger Celestial, summoning an effigy at the command of the caster. The effigy will assist you, attacking your primary target and also inflit tiger lightning every 6 sec to the 3 lowest health nearby enemies within 10 yards dealing (1,455 + 91.9% of SP) damage over 5 sec.
Zen Sphere - Forms a Zen Sphere above the target, healing the target for 1,171 every 2 sec and dealing 1 damage to the nearest enemy within 10 yards every 2 sec for 16 sec. Only one Zen Sphere can be summoned at any one time. If Zen Sphere is cast again while active, the Zen Sphere will detonate, dealing 985 damage and 1,971 healing to all targets within 10 yards.
Life Cocoon - now costs 4.5% of Base Mana. Now absorbs (374% of Spell Power + 39,958) damage and increases all periodic healing taken by 100%.
Renewing Mists - now ticks every 3 sec and lasts for 20 secs, up from every 2 secs for 15 seconds. Now affects allies within 20 yards, up from 8 yards.
Stance of the Wise Serpent - now gives you bonus attack power equal to 100% of your spell power.
Teachings of the Monastery – no longer affects Spinning Crane Kick. (Massive nerf to AOE healing)
Thunder Focus Tea – Now has a 45 sec cooldown, up from 10 sec.
4.) Thoughts on this patch?
After looking through the latest patch notes, one thing really caught my eye.
“Spinning Crane Kick” damage nerf, but then the changes to “Teachings of the Monastery” not healing for 100% of its damage done. That removed an unique AoE healing style that I was really hoping would stay through live, I would of been alright with a 50% nerf to keep it in. This makes us reliant on a mix of Renewing Mists, and Uplift, and our Lv.90 talent abilities. I’m hoping they either add an ability to further our AOE healing capability or modify renewing mists to spread up to 5 targets.
Thunder Focus Tea was a very potent ability that IMO needed a nerf(30sec would of been good). I could see 45sec cooldown being too long considering its only real use is to top off a Tank or catching up with group heals.
We’ll have to wait and see on how Mistweaver plays out in the patches to come!
