About Our Reviewer

This guide has been reviewed and approved by Suplift, a long-time Mistweaver Monk theorycrafter who raids in Lotion. You can follow him on Twitter: @suplift.

1. Introduction

If you are new to Mistweaver, this is a great place to start to get an understanding of how the spec works. On this page we will discuss what abilities you have, what they are used for within the specialisation, how they interact with each other and also with important cooldowns. If you already have experience with Mistweaver and are comfortable with it in Legion, it is recommended you skip this section and move on to the rest of the guide.

2. Main Resource

Mana is your only resource as a Mistweaver Monk. All of your healing abilities cost Mana, so managing it so that you do not run out over the course of each encounter is crucial to being able to heal competitively.

3. Basic Abilities

These are your core skills that are available regardless of talents, and form the core gameplay of the specialization.

Effuse Icon Effuse is a single target heal with a low cast time and a reasonable Mana cost. It will mostly be used to supplement single target healing when Enveloping Mist Icon Enveloping Mist and Soothing Mist Icon Soothing Mist are not enough.

Enveloping Mist Icon Enveloping Mist is an expensive single target heal that places a 6-second HoT on the target during which time they also receive 30% increased healing from you.

Vivify Icon Vivify is a multiple target heal (healing the target and their 2 nearest injured allies). It has a longer cast time than Effuse Icon Effuse, and it also costs more Mana.

Renewing Mist Icon Renewing Mist is a single-target 20-second HoT that jumps to another injured ally (without resetting its duration) whenever its current target is at maximum health. Generally, you should aim at keeping this ability up at all times.

Soothing Mist Icon Soothing Mist is a channeled spell that is passively cast on the last target of your Effuse Icon Effuse, Enveloping Mist Icon Enveloping Mist, Vivify Icon Vivify, or Life Cocoon Icon Life Cocoon. The channel will continue indefinitely, healing for a small amount every 0.5 seconds. Moving or casting any spells will interrupt Soothing Mist.

Essence Font Icon Essence Font is a channeled 3-second spell with a high Mana cost that heals up to 6 allies withing 25 yards every second. Each target that is healed by Essence Font also has a 6-second HoT applied on them.

Thunder Focus Tea Icon Thunder Focus Tea is an ability with a 30-second cooldown that empowers your next Renewing Mist Icon Renewing Mist, Effuse Icon Effuse, Enveloping Mist Icon Enveloping Mist, Essence Font Icon Essence Font, or Vivify Icon Vivify cast within 30 seconds (the cooldown does not begin until the effect has been triggered). Depending on which spell you use the effect on, it has the following consequences:

  • Renewing Mist Icon Renewing Mist: causes Renewing Mist not to trigger its cooldown when used;
  • Effuse Icon Effuse: causes the healing of Effuse to be increased by 200%;
  • Enveloping Mist Icon Enveloping Mist: makes Enveloping Mist instant cast;
  • Essence Font Icon Essence Font: allows Essence Font to be cast while moving;
  • Vivify Icon Vivify: removes the Mana cost of Vivify.

3.1. Movement

Roll Icon Roll is an essential Monk movement ability It allows you to quickly move 15 yards in front of you, and you should use this extensively for quickly traversing short distances. It has 2 charges and a 20-second recharge time, although this can be improved by talents.

Transcendence Icon Transcendence allows you to leave behind a copy of yourself for up to 15 minutes. If you then use Transcendence: Transfer Icon Transcendence: Transfer, you will be instantly moved back to the location of your copy. This can be useful in a wide range of situations, typically those where you know you will have to return to a certain location after moving away from it.

4. Important Procs

Uplifting Trance Icon Uplifting Trance is the only healing proc you have as a Mistweaver Monk. This proc has a 4% chance to trigger each time your Renewing Mist Icon Renewing Mist heals a target. The next Vivify Icon Vivify you cast within 20 seconds has its healing increased by 40%.

5. Cooldowns

Life Cocoon Icon Life Cocoon is a single-target healing cooldown, which places a damage absorption shield on the target, lasting for 12 seconds, or until broken by damage. While the shield is active, the target also receives 50% increased healing from healing over time spells. It is not on the global cooldown.

Revival Icon Revival is a raid-wide heal, which also removes any Magical, Disease or Poison effects from all targets. Most of the time, you will use this for the heal that it provides, treating it as a healing cooldown.
