Best In Slot - Mistweaver?

2 posts in this topic

Hi Dudes and Dudettes //

I have been having a hard time finding information on BiS gear for my Mistweaver. We are currently raiding Emerald Nightmare and I am primarily raid and multi target healing. Trying to avoid fistweaving. Ask Mr Robot is broken and will only show me drops from raids and legendaries, even when I sort it to bypass those. Icy-veins only lists trinkets and legendary items as well. Kind of lost here and I am trying to get better gear in between raiding for drops.

EDIT: once I logged into Ask Mr. Robot, It saved my filter to dungeons only. But I would still love your opinions!

Current character setup:ëance/simple

Current weapon relics are: (ilvl 840) (ilvl 835)  (ilvl 830)

The problem with BiS lists is that they're pretty skewed right now due to RNG.

Let's take a scenario of your chest slot.

If you want to avoid Fistweaving and doing raids, you'll be using the following prio:


1.1. Mistweaving

If you are not Fistweaving, you should use the following stat priority.

  1. Intellect;
  2. Versatility;
  3. Critical Strike;
  4. Haste = Mastery.

Note that Mastery and Haste change places depending on how much Mana you need, with Mastery being better for low-Mana situations

So, let's find a chest with Versatility and Crit for you. Here are just a few options:

At a first glance, you're probably thinking these two pieces of gear are useless to you. They're very low item level.

In reality, they can roll a "forged" buff high enough that they break item level 890+. This is true for so many pieces of gear and so many stats. If you had one of these at 860 item level, you'd be doing well. 2 main stats, great.

Suddenly, you have this piece drop: Shadow Stalker VestShadow Stalker Vest

It rolls a "forged" combo that puts it at 885. You're most likely going to take the 885, despite it not being your BiS chest. It's VERY difficult to create BiS lists, honestly. Just look for the right stats according to the priority.

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      Hi guys!   So this is my mistweaver monk here. Now I have actually managed to start raiding and do normals every week. However I have a huuuuge problem, specifically that my hps is really, really low. A good example I think would be this Aggramar fight:   You can see how the other monk had much higher hps than me. I do understand my leggos are subpar, but meh, bad luck one could say. What I don't understand is what I'm doing wrong. I try to use renewing mist on cd, use Vivify. I know I haven't used Effuse too much, but that's because I was trying out fistweawing. Anyways, all my other logs are basically the same. I have way too high overhealing as well. Any help would be great, because I'm lost, I love the monk, I love the style, but somehow can't get it to work as I would like it to. Please help meeeeee! Thanks for the feedback.
