Dissalussioned MW needs help BADLY

4 posts in this topic

I am a MW monk who has been doing an AWESOME job all the up until the last few levels in WoD. My raid and pvp stats were always in the top 2, now I'm lucky if I'm able to squeeze my way into top 5 of 5 healers! When I check recount, I notice they are all using renewing mist a lot. I have always relied heavily on my soothing mist. So, I have tried various ways of using it, but I'm just not sure how theyre doing it. Are they marking random players? I just don't get it and there doesn't seem to be an addon that will break down the mechanics of it to me. I'm seriously thinking of hanging up my  intellect headgear for a dunce cap and going dps! Can ANYONE give me any suggestions?

Speaking particularly about Renewing Mist, you need to try and keep it up on at least six players, and use Uplift a whole lot.  It helps dramatically if you have Pool of Mists as your tier 7 talent, as that boosts the healing on Renewing Mist by 15% and makes it a 3-charge thing, rather than the default CD.

 

Another really useful thing is to use Thunder Focus Tea before your Renewing Mist cast, as instead of jumping twice, it jumps four times, quickly stacking up the count of people with it on them.  Obviously if you're keeping a tank alive, you have to be careful with that, as you need the boost for an emergency heal, but when you can use the boost on the mist, do so.

 

If you want to do more AoE healing, Rushing Jade Wind is dead useful if there are a lot of people stacked about you in need of healing as the heal is big, pretty much always the case in BRF, but it depletes mana something chronic, failing that, the alternate talent Chi Torpedo as a roll-replacement makes for a more active healing utility over distance.

 

If you need to keep track of your Renewing Mists, there's an add-on called Renewing Mist Tracker, though you can get WeakAuras to do the same sort of thing with some work, and that has a great deal more uses.

Hi, i'm older player coming from almost 10 year hiatus, so I havent had the time to gear up to BiS, so your experience may vary depending on your iLVL. 

 

If you are doing raid healing just have Renewing Mist on everybody and shoot Uplift as much as possible. I find Power Strikes to be the best talent to gather Chi. Use Expel Harm asap to get the 1-3 chi and use Renewing Mist and Surging Mist to get chi when Expel Harm is on CD. 

Revival is a Huge spell as well, my personal trick is to pop Draenic Int potion before using revival to get the extra oomph out of it (havent heard anybody else doing so though..)

In smaller content, like mythic dungeons and 10 man raids, I personally spec to Chi Explosion so I've a bit more tools and I don't have to spread Renewing Mist so much. 

I also always spam Chi Burst and use Chi Torpedo whenever I don't anything else to do, they wont do much but in the end any little bit helps. 

Btw, you can use Expel Harm and Thunder Focus Tea before the fight so you've extra Chi and the Thunder Buff before the fight even starts. 

Transcendence is good way to minimize time you're moving.

      Okay so I'm new to monks, I used my legion 100 boost on a monk. 
      Yesterday I ran Neltharion's Lair and Darkheart Thicket, and saw something on Skada that had me wandering.
      I saw that my stagger damage and damage taken from auto attacks is almost the same, even if I'm using purifying brew. Now, the question is:
      Should I be taking more damage from stagger, even if I'm using purifying brew, or should I be taking more damage from autos? Does it matter that much if I'm thinking on tanking for mythic+, heroic raiding?
      (Idk if this is a dumb question, I'm just a 102 monk wanting to learn how to tank correctly)

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting ranged DPS, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 3/10M NH, 7/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk; in addition, we would like to acquire a second Shadow Priest or Demon Hunter. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      If you are interested, please PM me (violentravi#1826) or recruiting officer Sepsis (tuxedomask#1712) in game.  However, if you have time (which goes a long way) for us to give you a real evaluation there is a short forum to fill out linked on our discord: https://discord.gg/JMVuYRW
       
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo
      Violentnacho & the Guild
