Talent Cheatsheet for Mistweaver Monk
More Taloc Guides on Icy Veins
Taloc is a very straightforward fight from a healing perspective. The only wide source of raid damage comes in the form of Cudgel of Gore. Besides that, the only targets that need real attention other than the Tanks will be players afflicted with Plasma Discharge. Keep these players healthy with Vivify and Enveloping Mist as needed, while using Essence Font for each Cudgel.
In terms of positioning during this fight, standing in melee or ranged is acceptable. Place your Transcendence with whichever group you will be stacked with, and use it to port back into position after dropping off Plasma Discharge. Using your Roll/ Chi Torpedo to leave the group also offers greater flexibility in your positioning.
For the elevator, again, you can stand with either the ranged or the melee, though the melee will take more situational awareness, as you will be following the Coalesced Blood as it is kited. Remember to place your Transcendence close to your stack, just in case you are struck by a Volatile Droplet and need to port back onto the platform.
More M.O.T.H.E.R. Guides on Icy Veins
The most threatening aspect of MOTHER is the damage dealt to the raid as they pass through the Defense Grid. Your group is likely to send over multiple people during the first crossing of each Grid, so it is important to be ready with a Revival or a fully charged Upwelling to mitigate that. However, based on the speed of your group, or the assignments of your raid cooldowns these might not be options for you. The Tank who is tanking MOTHER should be your primary focus while Essence Font is on cooldown, and you two should be the last two to cross over each Grid. The reason for this is because Mistweaver Monk has some of the strongest single-target healing in the game, as well as the fact that Essence Font can heal targets on either side of the Grid.
In terms of positioning, you should be standing close to the Defense Grid. This is to ensure that Essence Font will hit as many people as possible. For Transcendence placement, you have some options: you can place it in the center of the room so that you can largely ignore the Wind Tunnel mechanic, or you can place it on one of the safe spots for the vertical Uldir Defensive Beams so you can pre-position on the other. Either of these options are a little superfluous though, seeing as how powerful Chi Torpedo is at completely countering both the Wind Tunnel and the Defensive Beams.
More Fetid Devourer Guides on Icy Veins
This encounter succeeds or fails based on Tank healing. Not only does Fetid Devourer melee attack tremendously hard, but the combination of Fetid Frenzy and Terrible Thrash can be disastrous. Essence Font every Shockwave Stomp, but otherwise make sure you are keeping your Tanks as topped-off as possible.
For positioning, you should be angled in such a way that you are not knocked in a totally different direction than the Tanks. You can be in melee range and in front of the boss, but off to the side. This way your Essence Font can hit the raid, but you will still be pushed in the same direction as the Tanks. You can also use Transcendence to negate the movement of every other Stomp.
More Vectis Guides on Icy Veins
The majority of the healing requirement from this fight will be handling the damage from Contagion and the absorbs from Immunosuppression. There is nothing particularly bursty or threatening to heal, so using Revival early and often is ideal. If you are running with a larger group size, Refreshing Jade Wind can see incredible value, where as if you are running with a small group, or your group does not have a lot of melee, the Invoke Chi-Ji, the Red Crane can be a solid pick.
You want to stand with the melee generally so that you can DPS the boss during downtime. Between transitions or at the start of the fight, you will want to help ferry an Omega Vector into melee if they all end up in ranged. One trick that is important to utilize as a Monk is using Transcendence to separate stacked debuffs. Each Omega Vector's jump is offset from another by about half a second, so as a Monk you are able to Transcend between those two jumps and split the debuffs, should more than one end up on one person.
Zek'voz, Herald of N'Zoth
More Zek'voz, Herald of N'Zoth Guides on Icy Veins
For Zek'voz you are going to be switching between using Essence Font to handle the Titan Spark and Surging Darkness, and priority healing the Tanks and Roiling Deceit targets.
For the majority of the fight you will want to be stacked up in melee. In Phase One, use Transcendence and Chi Torpedo to quickly exit the group when targeted by Eye Beam, and use Ring of Peace and Leg Sweep to crowd control the Silithid Warriors. In Phase Two, use Paralysis to interrupt and incapacitate the Nerubian Voidweavers. Finally in Phase Three, use all of your crowd controlling abilities to keep players afflicted with Will of the Corruptor locked down until the raid can deal with them.
More Zul, Reborn Guides on Icy Veins
This fight is a weird one for healers. There is essentially nothing to do until Phase Two, at which point the fight really begins. For Phase One, simply use Essence Font to heal the Dark Revelation while spot healing the raid and Tanks. If you can fit a Revival into Phase One, then do so, but make sure it is up again for Phase Two. Outside of healing, make sure to use your Paralysis to interrupt the Nazmani Bloodhexers as well as using Ring of Peace and Leg Sweep to control any Animated Ichor that get too close to Zul.
In Phase Two, you can use Essence Font essentially on cooldown due to the ticking damage from Corrupted Blood. When Death Wish goes out, wait until the two players leave the group, then dispel one and immediately follow that up with a Revival. The healing from Revival happens before the dispel so if you try to dispel both players using just Revival, then a good portion of its healing will be wasted. Besides that, the Tanks are going to require a metric ton of healing during this phase because of Rupturing Blood. Pay careful attention to their stacks, and be readying to apply all your HoTs to them as they leave to drop their stacks.
For positioning, you are going to want to be stacked up in the middle of the room with the rest of your raid. There are no mechanics on this fight that punish stacking, and in fact Death Wish actively encourages it.
Mythrax the Unraveler
More Mythrax the Unraveler Guides on Icy Veins
Mythrax is a fight where you can use Essence Font nearly on cooldown. Your raid is going to want to use healing cooldowns early and often just for efficiency. Ring of Peace can be used to knock players out of Oblivion Sphere, just be sure not to knock out too many at one time. Keep an eye on when people with Imminent Ruin are going to explode, and make sure players with low HP are topped off.
If your raid is light on melee DPS, then it is recommended to stand in melee range, however space can get tight as group sizes increase. Remember to place your Transcendence where you plan to stand during the fight, to allow yourself to quickly port back if you need to drop off an Imminent Ruin.
More G'huun Guides on Icy Veins
In Phase One, you are going to want to spot heal the raid while DPSing down adds G'huun spawns. If you are assigned to run the Power Matrix then make sure you leave early and save all your movement abilities. With a Warlock gate, it is possible for Monks to solo carry the orb, however it requires your Transcendence to be placed ahead of time. For example, what you can do is on the first Matrix spawn, go up with the first team in order to help clear Amorphous Cysts. Make sure they do not pass the orb to you, then simply place your Transcendence 40 yards from the end of the Warlock Gate. Then on the third Power Matrix, run up to your side, grab the orb, take the gate, Transcend, then Chi Torpedo twice and you will be at the end.
In Phase Two, you are going to want to be in melee if possible, however depending on group sizes, this might not be feasible. If you do manage to grab a coveted spot in melee, make sure you pay close attention to where Virulent Corruption orbs are traveling. If they are moving through the boss they can be very difficult to notice until it is too late. Essence Font can be used basically on cooldown due to Putrid Blood, and the Tanks will need extra attention when Gibbering Horrors spawn. In that same vein, it is incredibly important to track the energy of the Gibbering Horror so that you know when a Mind-Numbing Chatter will interrupt you.
For Phase Three, make liberal use of your movement speed abilities in order to dodge Malignant Growth and be sure to turn away from G'huun when he casts Gaze of G'huun.
