Mistweaver Monk PvP Guide (Shadowlands 9.0.5)
This guide will walk you through everything you need to know to play 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.
Mistweaver Monks in the Current Meta

Mistweaver Monks Strengths
- Great mobility
- Strong single-target healing
- Multiple crowd control abilities
Mistweaver Monks Weaknesses
- Easy to get stuck in crowd control
- No defensive abilities when stunned
