Fistweaving help

Recommended Posts

My main is a MW and in my raid group I do pretty well by Mistweaving exclusively, I rarely try to get up into melee and pop off a BoK or something. 

my armory: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/senjin/Bantok/advanced

 

I sometimes will cast CJL to get some damage in and I also got the DPS caster cloak to make that a bit more useful.

 

When I fistweave I feel like it's too mana heavy and does't put out enough healing to be worth it. But should I focus less on channeling soothing mists during light damage and just fistweave through it?

This. It's just something to do that will be more efficient than you trying to soothing mists people at full chi.

With a mistweaver the best advice I can give it to CONSTANTLY generate and use chi. Never sit on chi unless burst is coming. Fistweaveing helps you do exactly that with light damage.

Thanks for the reply! (and sorry for my late one)

 

I've noticed recently that I often cast uplift almost unconsciously just for the sake of burning chi (even when it does 100% overhealing)

 

My guild will be clearing normal another few times before we continue on so I have plenty time to practice and I'm sure the extra damage would be appreciated on heroic bosses.

Being in melee range also means you can ignore 85% of mechanics (totally just pulled that number out of thin air)

Nap during raid, let serpent's zeal do the work.

 

Did they trash the idea that boss mechanics treat MWers like melee? e.g. I won't get hit by desecrate in melee

Desecrate is actually based entirely on range, not spec.  It drops on melees if they're too far from the boss when determining eligible targets.

 

In terms of mechanics that are spec-based, it's been said that Mistweavers are supposed to count as melee, but I'm uncertain if that's actually the case.

We are treated like melee provided we are in melee.

Even then... If the mechanic specifically targets range not melee (I.E Seigecrafter Sawblades, Seigecrafter Locked On) they wont target you at all still even if you're in range.

 

Pretty much, as its always been, Monks are counted as melee. ALWAYS

      <Fun is for Casuals> is a serious but casual horde guild on US-Hyjal. We are serious about raiding without the intense hours. Even when recruitment status is none, we will accept exceptional applications for all classes. For a full list of what we're looking for check out https://funisforcasuals.enjin.com . 
      Our raid times are Tuesday and Thursday from 5:00PM to 8:00PM server (PST) with raid invitations sent out a few minutes prior to that.

      We're interested in you if you fit the following criteria:
      Raid attendance is essential. We don't want people sitting on the bench but we also want to make sure we're raiding 6 hours per week. We expect you to be available for at least 90% of our raids. Be on time and prepared for raids. This includes flasks and other consumables. Discord is mandatory and a working mic is desired. You're appropriately geared for our current content. Effort and thought have been put into your gear/gem/enchant choices. You wouldn't show up for a job interview looking like a scrub, why would you apply to a guild with improper gems or some insane spec? You're up to date with your class. We expect our raiders to perform to the best of their abilities. You have a computer that's not run with hamster power or requires a hand crank. Some encounters are taxing on a computer's resources so if your toon can't even handle Orgrimmar it's not likely to do well with 20+ whelps that need AOE'ing.
      You may be interested in us because:
      <Fun is for Casuals> uses the personal loot system. There is no loot council, or DKP. We won't eat your babies the first time you stand in something you have no business being in. Repeatedly do it and we'll break out the bibs and BBQ sauce. We provide a limited amount of consumables and flasks on hard mode raid nights. Discord isn't a circus during raids. We're focused on the job at hand and you should be too. We don't want someone to miss a an interrupt because they were distracted by fart jokes. We are not interested in you if you fit the following criteria:
      You roll on BoE items then sell them. Unwilling/unable to spend an entire evening on one boss during progression. While this is rare, it can happen. Drama queens. If you have a problem bring it up to E. This is his job. Don't announce it in guild chat or during a raid. Your issue will have nothing to do with 99% of the guild. You are 17 or younger. We try to keep guild and discord chat PG-13 but occasionally a few four letter words appear out of nowhere. Additionally, we don't want someone's mom interrupting their raiding to get homework or the dishes done. Follow the instructions at https://funisforcasuals.enjin.com/ under the Recruitment tab if you would like to apply.
      If you have any question, feel free to contact E. at DbD#1309
