Last updated on May 07, 2024 at 11:20 by Mysticall 10 comments
General Information

This guide will walk you through everything you need to know to play Mistweaver Monk in a PvP environment. The guide will cover everything from talent choices, PvP talents, gameplay and rotation, and useful racial bonuses. It is most applicable to Arena content, but most talents and racial bonuses will work in Rated Battlegrounds and skirmishes.

1.

Mistweaver Monks in the Current Meta

Mistweaver Monks in PvP are fun, challenging, and rewarding to play. The style of a Mistweaver is fast-paced with unique offensive abilities. This play style is unlike any other healer in the game. Sometimes you are forced to get in melee range to cast spells.

Mistweaver Monk Strengths and Weaknesses

Strengths icon Strengths
  • +Great mobility
  • +Strong single-target healing
  • +Multiple crowd control abilities
Weaknesses icon Weaknesses
  • -Easy to get stuck in crowd control
  • -Very little utility for teammates
  • -No damage to help with kills if you do not Fistweave
3.

Notable 10.2.6 Changes

  • Ancient Teachings Icon Ancient Teachings healing transfer amount reduced to 375% in PvP combat (was 412%). This seems like a big nerf, but it should not impact how strong Fistweaving is.
4.

Notable 10.2 Changes

  • Healing Elixir Icon Healing Elixir has been redesigned as a passive effect.You consume a healing elixir when you drop below 35% health and are not in a loss of control effect, instantly healing you for 15% of your maximum health. You generate 1 healing elixir every 30 seconds, stacking up to 2 times. The passive healing from this will help Mistweavers stay alive a lot easier.
  • Clouded Focus Icon Clouded Focus now increases the healing and decreases the mana cost of Vivify and Enveloping Mist by 15% per stack (was 20%). This is a decent nerf to Mistweaver healing output.
5.

Notable 10.1.5 Changes

  • Ancient Teachings Icon Ancient Teachings now heals for 245% more in PvP combat (was 220%). This is a great buff if you Fistweave, but does not impact healing/damage output if you are casted healing.
5.1.

Notable 10.1 Changes

  • Ancient Teachings Icon Ancient Teachings has been redesigned. Instead of healing one target for 375% of the damage dealt, it now splits that healing among 5 teammates taking damage.
  • Burst of Life Icon Burst of Life no longer reduces the cooldown or effectiveness of Life Cocoon Icon Life Cocoon.
  • Chrysalis Icon Chrysalis removed from PvP talents and moved to choice node with Burst of Life Icon Burst of Life.
  • Vivify Icon Vivify primary healing increased by 50% (was 20%).
  • Song of Chi-Ji Icon Song of Chi-Ji removed from Mistweaver Tree and moved to choice node in class tree with Ring of Peace Icon Ring of Peace.
  • Calming Coalescence Icon Calming Coalescence moved to choice node with Nourishing Chi Icon Nourishing Chi.
  • Two new PvP talents: Zen Spheres Icon Zen Spheres and Fae Accord Icon Fae Accord.
