General Information

On this page, you will find the best gear and best in slot items for your Mistweaver Monk in World of Warcraft Dragonflight 10.0.5.


Best in Slot List for Mistweaver Monks

Because of the diverse nature of gear and the variability of item level due to things like the weekly cache, a true "best in slot" list is slippery. You should always be equipping items that will benefit you based on your stat weights. To acquire said weights, use WoW Analyzer. More on that can be found below.

To find out how to best augment your gear with enchants and gems and optimize your characters with consumables, check out our Gem, Enchant, and Consumable page below.


Gearing up for Dragonflight

Upon reaching Level 70, you have 3 main options to start gearing your character: Dungeons and Raids, PvP such as Arena or Battlegrounds, and world systems like Renown with the four main Reputations.

Once you can get invited to Mythic dungeons, be sure to complete each one during your first week, then look to see if you can find groups for your preferred style of play, be that Mythic+ or Rated PvP.

As mentioned above, true BiS lists are often unhelpful when our modes of acquiring gear are so varied and diverse. Instead, you should aim to equip the gear that sims the best for you or most closely aligns with your stat priority. However, certain types of items are special and ought to be mentioned. These items are Tier sets, Jewelry, Trinkets, and Weapons.



The ranking system is as follows:

  1. A Tier: these trinkets are by far the strongest and are always good options.
  2. B Tier: are slightly weaker than S but may be lacking in certain areas.
  3. C Tier: are middling trinkets that have either difficult-to-use effects or random procs that drastically reduce their effective value.
  4. D Tier: these are generally worthless trinkets you should avoid.

Rings and Necks are important slots because they have a disproportionately high amount of secondary stats. They are generally not itemized with primary stats. As such, you can more drastically affect the proportions of your stat ratios with these three item slots than with any other.

Be sure to follow your stat weights when selecting these items



Weapons are arguably your most essential slots because they are budgeted with the highest amount of Intellect out of any other slot by a wide margin. Because of this, you will almost always equip whatever is your highest item-level weapon. However, sometimes weapons will have a bonus proc or effect on them that may, in some cases, make it worth using over another item at a high item level.



With the updated crafting system introduced in Dragonflight, we have also seen the introduction of a new way to add interesting effects to your crafted gear: Embellishments. When an item is being crafted, you can add a reagent that will cause that piece of gear to have a specific proc depending on the reagent used. Additionally, some pieces of gear come with embellishments already on them. You can wear a maximum of 2 pieces of embellished gear.

The following are the best Embellishments for Mistweaver Monk:

  • Elemental Lariat Icon Elemental Lariat — This neck comes with a baseline embellishment effect that is already very powerful. With a proc rate of twice per minute, it is a no-brainer to get this item crafted
  • Potion Absorption Inhibitor Icon Potion Absorption Inhibitor — The benefits of this can be somewhat marginal, however it can be paired with a Potion of Chilled Clarity Icon Potion of Chilled Clarity to regen mana while doing the rotation we would normally do while under the effects of Mana Tea Icon Mana Tea or Innervate Icon Innervate
  • Magazine of Healing Darts Icon Magazine of Healing Darts — This embellishment will randomly spit out healing to your group on a fairly high proc rate. However, it does have a high propensity to overheal, so it loses value in smaller groups and Mythic+.

Tier Sets

Tier Sets are a group of items that provide you with bonuses depending on how many items of that group you equip. These are always dropped from raids, but you can also acquire them from your Great Vault or by upgrading items via the Inspiration Catalyst. The bonuses for Mistweavers are as follows:

Both these bonuses are relatively passive and do not change our play. Just a nice little bit of extra healing for doing what we would typically be doing.
