General Information

On this page, you will find the best gear and best in slot items for your Mistweaver Monk in World of Warcraft Shadowlands 9.0.5.


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 gain net you the greatest benefit 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 also how to optimize your characters with consumables, check out our Gem, Enchant, and Consumable page below.


Gearing up for Shadowlands

Upon reaching Level 60, you have 3 main options to start gearing your character: Dungeons and Raids, PvP such as Arena or Battlegrounds, and world quests. We recommend quickly checking the world quest map to find any items to replace your lowest pieces, with the aim of raising your item level enough to get invited to dungeon groups.

Once you are able to 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.
