You cant cast your healing spheres any more WHATS UP WITH THAT? They make a new classcharacter that ppl have fun playing. Then they screw it up. What they said they were going to do they did the opposite.

You're upset because they took away a spell that does the same thing as the mastery proc, but only lets you have 3 orbs at a time? I thought that was a dumb spell to have with MW mastery. It would have been a nice spell if mastery didn't do the same thing.

You're going to have to clarify that so any one has some idea what you are talking about.

You've actually got it the wrong way around. MW'w mastery is unreliable whereas Healing Spheres were quite good.

I'm going to assume you're talking about the removal of Healing Sphere being castable by the monk instead of only proccing off of mastery.

I was upset about the change at first until I saw that they added a spell called Detonate Chi, which is really going to make their mastery shine again. To be fair the healing sphere that we could cast made for some ridiculous single target healing, which is probably why it got removed.

Copied from the beta notes:
Detonate Chi is a new spell available to Mistweaver Monks, instantly detonating all Healing Spheres, and causing each of them to heal a nearby ally within 12 yards of the sphere with a 15-second cooldown.

One ability isn't what makes a class fun. It's the entire toolkit.

Iunno, Atonement is all I need to play a Disc.

There was zero chance Healing Sphere was going to make it to WoD as is. Even if they gave it an arming time so it couldn't be spammed, it would still be completely awkward. It's obviously not working as intended, plus it's the biggest offender as an instant spammable heal which they don't want in PvP.

My thoughts exactly.

I'm not really mourning the loss of Healing Sphere much, but to say "it's ok there's still mastery" is a good way of demonstrating a lack of knowledge regarding Mistweavers' entire existence.

Will i see the only ppl that dont get it are the ones that dont play pvp or a monk. it's not the spaming. it's being able to move and cast a spall in front of your target. pvp is a fluid game.

Sure, as a MW I get all excited when I know I can run away spamming 185k spheres that bring me back to full HP in 1-2 sec, and I don't even have to spend time casting.

But it's unfair to DPS classes who spend a good amount of time trying to kill me, just so I can spit one ball and get back to 100% health.

Why not just nerf them, why stop players from using them on the run. it makes no sense to me.

I didn't state mastery was better than Healing Spheres. I did state that there shouldn't be a spell that does the same thing as mastery. As Runyalote stated, you are getting Detonate Chi, which enhances mastery, to replace a spell that replicates mastery. Since they are not changing mastery, this change is better for the overall class design.

I'd actually say it's more like the other way around; mastery attempts to replicate healing sphere.

Yeah, they're trying to make our mastery better, which is much needed, but we'll see how well that works out. Our mastery is extremely crappy currently, and that's all we know for a fact. Personally I'd like to see our mastery reworked completely.

Because in WoD it would be the single most OP healing spell in the game, it would be a spell that's either not worth using or OP. It also forces "bad" players to use a bot to use it effectively, since outside of some it's too hard to use in PvP for the users who can't predict their teams movements.

Multiple reasons ;p

This is nuts.When you know what your doing in RBG you'll know where your healing target is going. there is alwas going to be cheaters in the game. They nerfth spells to get them right. I play a monk in the bata right now. A warrior wanted to duel (in bata), I said I am a healer but he or she insisted. When the warrior lost I was at full health. and never went be low 90%. The healing Sphere are fun to play around with, it makes the game fun. IT's not a job. I play the game for fun.
