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

      Hi guys! 
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/chamber-of-aspects/erthol   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: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/jKcxbLXrQ9pknDva#fight=27&type=healing   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.

      Hi! I am running through antorus right now, and I'm trying to push heroic with my guild now. We just downed the hounds, and we won't be raiding again until next weekend. I was wondering if I can get some help with learning what I'm doing wrong with my monk, I'm a brewmaster tank, and I seem to be taking almost twice the damage of the other tank in the raid, the prot pally. What am I doing wrong? what can I fix? 
      Here's the link - https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/HZ8tYNGLM2T4bcfr/#fight=12&type=summary
       
      Thanks very much!

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      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, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo
