General Information

Welcome to our Mistweaver Monk healing guide for World of Warcraft Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.0.1. Here, you will learn everything you need to know about playing a Mistweaver Monk in a raid environment and in Mythic+ dungeons.

About Our Author

This guide has been written by Dhaubbs a Mistweaver Monk theorycrafter, and moderator on the Monk Discord Peak of Serenity. He raids in Big Dumb Guild on Illidan-US, where he also produces encounter videos. You can follow him on Twitter, Twitch, and/or YouTube.

1. Class Overview

The Mistweaver specialisation is versatile, and different talent choices can allow it to fit the requirements of the raid very well. Mistweavers can, therefore, heal both tanks and the raid very well.

Based on talent choices, Mistweavers can be either unparalleled tank healers with strong area of effect throughput, or damage dealing mobile raid healers.

2. Patch 8.0.1 Changes for Mistweaver Monks
