- Monk – In efforts to further discourage Jab, Jab, Uplift, we increased the mana cost of Jab from 6% to 8%, increased the mana restore on Muscle Memory from 2% to 4%, and increased the mana cost of glyphed Uplift to 16% mana. So that monks feel like they can be less reliant on Jab, Jab, Uplift, we also changed Soothing Mist to generate chi more consistently (to avoid long stretches of bad luck) and increased its generation rate overall.
I know it won't be a surprise to those who know me, but I'm ecstatic. Less mandatory fistweaving makes me a very happy monk.
But I know there are those out there that love fistweaving, xD I just wish they could find a balance where both would be possible.
Like, they should really just add a 2nd stance to mistweavers. Stance of the Graceful Crane or something. So they can adjust mana costs for fistweavers without impacting ranged mistweavers and vice versa. Besides, crane style fighting moves always seem to be physical in game based on the crane trainees and spinning crane kick, so *shrug*
Anyway, I'm interested to see how they're making Soothing Mists give Chi more reliably. O_o
