This guide has been reviewed and approved by Suplift, a long-time Mistweaver Monk theorycrafter who raids in Ego (the guild that resulted from the merger of Lotion and Entropy). You can follow him on Twitter: @suplift.

1. Artifact Progression

Artifact Progression

For the first 35 points, the Artifact progression path for Mistweaver Monks is straightforward for a number of traits, after which you will be confronted with a choice between  Icon Dancing Mists and  Icon Blessings of Yu'lon. We recommend Dancing Mists, but Blessings of Yu'lon can be viable.

Regardless of your later choices, the first 15 points should be invested as follows.

  1.  Icon Sheilun's Gift
  2.  Icon Mists of Wisdom
  3.  Icon Essence of the Mists
  4.  Icon Spirit Tether
  5.  Icon Way of the Mistweaver
  6.  Icon The Mists of Sheilun
  7.  Icon Mists of Life
  8.  Icon Extended Healing

At this point, you should either take  Icon Dancing Mists (by taking  Icon Infusion of Life and  Icon Shroud of Mist first), or  Icon Blessings of Yu'lon (by taking  Icon Protection of Shaohao first).

Regardless of which choice you go for, the next step should be to complete the other path. Once you have both Dancing Mists and Blessings of Yu'lon, take  Icon Coalescing Mists on your way to  Icon Celestial Breath, and then take any remaining traits (with  Icon Light on Your Feet being the least valuable one).

Artifact Progression Above Level 35

After this, you should take the remaining traits (added in Patch 7.2) as follows.

  1. Mists of the Broken Temple Icon Mists of the Broken Temple
  2. Tendrils of Revival Icon Tendrils of Revival
  3.  Icon Infusion of Life
  4.  Icon Extended Healing
  5.  Icon Essence of the Mists
  6.  Icon Way of the Mistweaver
  7. Effusive Mists Icon Effusive Mists
  8. Whispers of Shaohao Icon Whispers of Shaohao
  9.  Icon Coalescing Mists
  10.  Icon Protection of Shaohao
  11.  Icon Soothing Remedies
  12.  Icon Shroud of Mist
  13.  Icon Spirit Tether
  14. Concordance of the Legionfall Icon Concordance of the Legionfall

2. Relic Choice

Both the item level and trait of the relic can have a huge impact on your choice. Each trait is worth a certain number of item levels in terms of raw performance; below is a list of each trait and how much they are worth in terms of your weapon's item level. When comparing relics, you should compare the combined item level increase provided by the actual relic and the value in the list below, and then choose the relic with the higher combined value.

2.1. Raiding/Fistweaving

  1.  Icon Essence of the Mists (+3 item levels)
  2. Tendrils of Revival Icon Tendrils of Revival,  Icon Infusion of Life, and  Icon Extended Healing (+2 item levels)
  3. Everything else (+0 item levels)

2.2. Mythic+

  1.  Icon Way of the Mistweaver,  Icon Infusion of Life,  Icon Extended Healing, and  Icon Essence of the Mists (+2 item levels)
  2. Everything else (+0 item levels)
