Fistweaving help

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

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!
