1. Artifact Progression

Artifact Progression

The artifact progression path for Mistweaver Monks is straightforward for a number of traits, after which you will be confronted with a choice between  Icon Dancing Mists and  Icon Blessings of Yu'lon. We recommend Dancing Mists, but Blessings of Yu'lon can be viable.

Regardless of your later choices, the first 15 points should be invested as follows.

  1.  Icon Sheilun's Gift
  2.  Icon Mists of Wisdom
  3.  Icon Essence of the Mists
  4.  Icon Spirit Tether
  5.  Icon Way of the Mistweaver
  6.  Icon The Mists of Sheilun
  7.  Icon Mists of Life
  8.  Icon Extended Healing

At this point, you should either take  Icon Dancing Mists (by taking  Icon Infusion of Life and  Icon Shroud of Mist first), or  Icon Blessings of Yu'lon (by taking  Icon Protection of Shaohao first).

Regardless of which choice you go for, the next step should be to complete the other path. Once you have both Dancing Mists and Blessings of Yu'lon, take  Icon Coalescing Mists on your way to  Icon Celestial Breath, and then take any remaining traits (with  Icon Light on Your Feet being the least valuable one).

2. Relic Choice

When choosing which relics to use, always take the one that grants you the highest item level, regardless of the benefit it offers. When having to choose between relics that grant the same item level, chose based on the following trait enhancement priorities.

2.1. Raiding

In case of raiding, we differentiate between the Mistweaving and Fistweaving playstyles.

  2.  Icon Infusion of Life =  Icon Extended Healing
  3.  Icon Essence of the Mists
