Hi there, 

 

So the mistweaver monk in my guild is an awesome raider, she is never standing in fire, dodges the mechanics, and generally won't die to much of anything. This makes her an extremely valuable player in our group. Unfortunately, her numbers seem to be a bit low amongst our healers. None of my officers or myself have ANY experience playing a mistweaver, so we are at a stand still on how to help her. Granted, she just got her 4 piece and I'm sure they will increase once she learns how to utilize that a bit more, and she was also pretty sick when she was raiding this week, but I was hoping somebody could look these logs over and just give some helpful tips and tricks, and maybe see what she's doing (or should be doing) to increase her heals. Thank you so much in advance!

I wouldn't call myself an expert on the topic, so I'll leave more specific advice to the experts. However I do have some experience with MW so hopefully I can give a few pointers. 

 

First thing I notice on the logs is that your MW is competing against 2 absorb classes (Disc priest and H Pally). In the Xhul'horac parse you're 4 healing it with I believe 17 people? Given how much you overgear that fight (most ilvls around 715+), 4 heals definitely feels like overkill. The way monk raid heals work is rather random; you spread Renewing Mist which then jumps to lowest health player within range. Your raid healing spell Uplift, that heals the people with your renewing mist on them. If you have other healers who are constantly shielding people, and a shaman who has a LOT of smart heals, most of monks healing here where you outgear the content is going to be overhealing.

 

Only thing I can say about spec is that I would go with Chi Torpedo over Rushing Jade Wind. It's SO powerful and costs no mana, and works well with the first tier Celerity.

The trinkets are a little weird, I'm not sure if they're just defaulted to her because that's all she can get? I'm sure there's better MW trinkets in HFC. From what I understand, haste and mastery are poor for MW in comparison to Multi & crit, and I don't think mana should be a problem to get much use from the second trinket (someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong).

 

I find on my monk with so much available spirit, chi brew talent and mana tea, it's very very hard to go OOM. I think if her mana is comfortable she could be a lot more agressive with mana useage. For example, using surging mist on low people to generate more chi so she can be spending chi more agressively too. Personally I don't like the mana tea glyph, because it feels like you're forced to use mana tea on cd in order to make the most of your mana tea stacks. I feel like it's worth the cost to channel the tea for a few seconds of down time, as long as you remember to do it before you actually run out of mana.

 

Hopefully this helps, anyone feel free to correct me :)

He/She needs more gear with multistrikes so that renewing mist management isn't as taxing. Considering multitrike is at around 1200, my guess is that the shaman's smart heals are eating away at her hps. Get her more MS and the lil panda should be ok.

With enough spirit, Rushing Jade Wind is very powerful, and keeping it up during heavy raid-wide AoE is a LOT of healing.  The 4pc is not overkill, it is really powerful and can save peoples lives in a pinch by uplift > ReM immediately, putting the extend life on the person targeted with ReM BEFORE the Extend Life healing goes out, giving them a large amount of healing.  That being said, 4 healing a 17 man heroic kill with a disc and H Pally really doesn't help your MW numbers.  Their gear is not very well optimized, as they should be going for MS and then haste or crit wherever possible.  Glyph wise they need to get rid of the mana tea glyph immediately as it is a loss of mana to use.

Thank you, I showed this to her, and she really appreciates all the input. We also know that Heroic is a joke now, and we overgear it by a lot. We're in the middle of building a mythic roster and we just happen to have recruited our mythic healers before we could finish out the DPS. This is highly encouraging going into mythic that maybe the numbers will see a drastic increase when the heals aren't getting soaked up.

Mythic Mistweaver here! 

 

I have disagree with what was said about RJW earlier entirely, and in fact insist that you don't listen to it.

 

Rushing Jade Wind is the go-to talent for mistweaver on that tier and does absolutely astounding levels of healing if you use it correctly. On any fight where there are the number of targets necessary in range (on most fights if there's not stacking you can just go to melee to use it) it's a very strong heal. Off the top of my head there are moments on every fight where it can/should be used on heroic (in mythic there are even more mechanics which warrant practically using it the entire fight): 

 

Hellfire Assault: When a Gorebound Terror casts Felfire Volley. 

Fel Reaver: Position yourself in melee as much as possible and use RJW on Pounding, For Artillery on tanks - basically keep it up the entire fight during the ground phase. 

Hellfire High Council: On Felstorm, Ghost Phase, Mirror Images (ranged stack), Final Phase with all the marks.

Kilrogg: Death Throes in melee, or while moving as a group with ranged.

Kormrok: With careful positioning you can hit most of melee with it during Pound, Hands, Splash. Most of the damage on this is AOE, so you can use it for that. 

Gorefiend: If you manage your mana properly to start feast with 100% mana, you can and should keep 100% uptime on Rushing Jade Wind for feast of souls' duration. 

Shadow Lord Iskar: Fel Chakram AoE, Focused Blast

Socrethar: In melee in P1 as required, In p2 for the Apocalypse and as required. 

Tyrant Velhari: In melee after the Tempest to top them up, Every Edict, As often as possible and P2, and as much as P3 as possible.

Fel Lord Zakuun: Basically all of the disarmed phase and when seeds are going out and the final burn.

Xhul'horac: For Black Hole (help soak yourself, with it up), And during the final burn as often as possble. 

Mannoroth: Not much use as first, but when he awakens and the raid stacks by his side, for Fel Hellstorm, After Gaze, In the final phase basically all the time. 

Archimonde: The raid should be stacked as soon as desecrate starts, so for Desecrate, Allure, Shackled Torment, Any stray Wroughts going through the raid, Demonic Feedback, Rain of Chaos - RJW can and should be used for all of these. 

 

As you can see, RJW is a huge healing boost and is on-demand and just requires a little thinking about positioning. As a Mistweaver you can be in melee, so you should whenever you can for using RJW to get the most out of it if there's no ranged stacking. Good RJW is in fact a large part of being a good mistweaver. 

 

In addition, your MW has the 4 set, and the 4 set is a huge source of healing for us. She should be using Renewing Mist on people who are taking, or will soon be taking damage, and trying to keep uptime on the Extend Life buff on the currently active tank as a sort of beacon of light. This makes RJW even stronger a choice, as it generates chi which you can then spend on Uplift and not only do more healing from that, but more healing through extend life. 

 

Since your MW will not be using Chi Torpedo, she should be using Tiger's Lust instead of Celerity, since it's an excellent raid utility to be able to use and is also one of the marks of a good mistweaver. 

 

Trinket-wise the demonic phylactery is very strong for mistweaver, as it reduces the cost of RJW, which is otherwise very costly. It's a good choice all round. 

 

I do agree that the mana tea glyph HAS to go, and that she should be more aggressive. This should mostly be covered with more aggressive use of RJW. 

 

If you'd like a log to look at and compare and see what sort of differences there are between our healing that she can examine and see what she needs to do more or less of, here's a link to one of my own hc mannoroth kills:

And here's the HC Archimonde:

      Times/Days Raiding: Tuesday/Friday 5pm-8pm PDT (Sometimes Sunday for alt runs)
      A Little Bit About Us: With over 400 members and heroic and mythic experience, we aim to have heroic raiding content on farm, with some Mythic raiding as well. We run M+ often and push higher keys as well. We're also aiming to get out feet into RP and RP like events so maybe you're an RPer wanting to try and get into raiding! Maybe you're a raider that wants to RP occasionally on the side! We can offer both, as well as casual PVP!
      What You Can Expect From Us: We have a strong team and aim to continuously strengthen our community. We offer a place to be yourself, while not being judged. We offer people who can help you with RP, be it creating a character or a story, or even on the PVE side of things, officers/members that can assist you with learning more about your class, and last but CERTAINLY not least, we offer a focused and progressive mindset when it comes to Mythic + and Raiding content.
      What We Expect From You: First and foremost, everyone is human, mistakes happen and we know that everyone has different variables affecting their lives. Compassion, effort and patience is all we ask. Mic on comms control is important as well as patience. We ask that you're sure that this is the type of raiding you seek before you message us, we'd hate for there to be a misconstruing of what we both seek!
      What's Next?! Contact Zennargle#1921 for more information or whisper anyone and they can direct you to a GM or Officer for more info if you desire! Or even respond to this forum post and we'll get back to ya as soon as we can! Hope to see some new faces!

        Raid Times: Our schedule is 8-11 EST Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.   Needs: We are a small guild, and we expect high attendance. As such, we recruit people to raid, and desire people who can step in and contribute immediately. We don’t recruit people to sit around, so all spots are for raiders who can expect to be in most every raid.   We are currently looking to add skilled and reliable:   Melee and Ranged DPS

      Medium: MW Monk, Holy Paladin
      Low: Holy Priest
      *ALL exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of the class.   What we ask of you:   Effort: Not all applicants come from highly progressed guilds, and that’s okay, but it does mean that you need to be prepared. We recruit the player, not the gear, but we do ask that you have some current experience. You need to have the best gear available to you with top end enchants and gems where available. You also need to be able to display an understanding of your class mechanics, role in a raid, and ability to learn new fights.   Attitude: It’s a game. We play for fun. How you fit in with the guild is taken very seriously. We’re a bunch of mostly 18-30 guys and girls who have fun playing together. While we have a good time, we also know when it’s time to buckle down and work hard.   Skill: The best way to determine skill is to see you in a raid. Because we don’t wish to have anyone transfer that we’re not serious about, be able to express your knowledge of your class and why you’re an exceptional player who would be an asset and is worth a shot. Gear will come with time. Skill will not. Impress us with your knowledge of your class and gameplay mechanics. Feel free to share any logs, theorycrafting, or other work you've done.   Commitment: We make a commitment to you, and ask you to do the same to us. A raid takes a team of more than 20 individuals working together. We rely on you to show up to raids, research your class and new fights, respect your fellow players, and notify us when you are unavailable. You rely on us for gear, experience, and coordination. It's a large investment of our time to train and gear new players, and we ask the same investment on your part so that we can each benefit.   We have a variety of informational resources available to prospective applicants on our web site: http://www.dotd.org-- please refer to our "Applications" forum for detailed information.

      About Us:
      Two Strike Policy is a weekday Mythic hardcore progression guild on US-Sargeras. In our spare time, we run various high mythic keystones/carries. Currently we are recruiting for our BFA Mythic Team for the Raid Tier Battle of Dazar'alor.  We value camaraderie, communication, preparedness and excellence in each other. Discord is used to communicate during raids. We decided to reform our team after Mythic Mythrax in Uldir and add additional days to our raid schedule from two days to four days a week to achieve CE early on in the tier. 
      We will still be using the updated RCLootCouncil to help distribute loot if it is tradeable or a sidegrade. We expect raiders to be aware of their BIS and ideal gearing setup, and willing to trade where possible to best equip the raid team. The type of people we want would almost JUMP at giving gear to their fellow raid member/team if it is a sidegrade for themselves. Guild repairs, flasks and food are provided to all raiders, including trials.

      Alt requirement: 2 Alts. Keeping the neck & gear up to date. Please inquire about this!
