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

Choosing your gear carefully is important for your Mistweaver Monk in PvP. We give you a stat priority to help you choose items with the right stats, followed by advice on how to choose the rest of your gear and your trinkets.

This page is part of our Mistweaver Monk PvP Guide.


Stat Priority for Mistweaver Monks in PvP

The stat priority for Mistweaver Monk in PvP is as follows:

  1. Intellect;
  2. Versatility;
  3. Mastery;
  4. Haste;
  5. Critical Strike.

Intellect is the best stat in all situations. Versatility is the most important secondary stat as it increases the healing you do and reduces the damage you take. Mastery (Mastery: Gust of Mists Icon Mastery: Gust of Mists) is also important because it increases your overall healing output.

Note: If you plan on "Fistweaving," you should focus on Versatility/Haste.


Gear Recommendations


General Guidelines

In general, Mistweaver Monks want to get trinkets that increase their overall healing output. These trinkets can have a passive or on-use effect. The stat you want to be increasing is Versatility. The reason you want to increase Versatility is because it increases both your damage and healing and reduces the damage you take. For gear, you want anything that has Versatility and Mastery on it. This will increase your overall healing output and your survivability. Here is the best gear we recommend you use as a Mistweaver Monk.

  • Head: Gaze of the Waking Fist Icon Gaze of the Waking Fist
  • Neck: Draconic Gladiator's Amulet Icon Draconic Gladiator's Amulet
  • Shoulders: Mantle of the Waking Fist Icon Mantle of the Waking Fist
  • Cloak: Scalewarden's Cloak Icon Scalewarden's Cloak
  • Chest: Chestwrap of the Waking Fist Icon Chestwrap of the Waking Fist
  • Wrists: Scalewarden's Leather Wraps Icon Scalewarden's Leather Wraps
  • Hands: Palms of the Waking Fist Icon Palms of the Waking Fist
  • Waist: Draconic Gladiator's Leather Strap Icon Draconic Gladiator's Leather Strap
  • Legs: Draconic Gladiator's Leather Legwraps Icon Draconic Gladiator's Leather Legwraps
  • Feet: Infurious Footwraps of Indemnity Icon Infurious Footwraps of Indemnity
  • Ring 1: Draconic Gladiator's Signet Icon Draconic Gladiator's Signet
  • Ring 2: Signet of Titanic Insight Icon Signet of Titanic Insight
  • Trinket 1: Draconic Gladiator's Medallion Icon Draconic Gladiator's Medallion
  • Trinket 2: Draconic Gladiator's Insignia of Alacrity Icon Draconic Gladiator's Insignia of Alacrity
  • Staff: Draconic Gladiator's Greatstaff Icon Draconic Gladiator's Greatstaff

Note: It is essential to be wearing 2 PvP trinkets. This will give you a Stamina and stat boost that will increase your survivability.


Mistweaver Monk Tier Set

As noted above, acquiring both your 2-set and 4-set bonus is crucial. It is important to note that ALL tier sets are nerfed by 50% in PvP. Although this nerf is significant, tier sets are still important to acquire to maximize your chances to win. For Mistweaver Monks, this is your tier set:

  • 2-set: Renewing Mist Icon Renewing Mist applies a buff to the target, increasing their healing taken from you by 50% for 8 seconds. This is a very powerful set bonus that will drastically increase your healing output.
  • 4-set: 20% of all healing you do to targets with Chi Harmony is stored and then dispersed evenly among your allies with Renewing Mist Icon Renewing Mist when Chi Harmony Fades or is refreshed. This is a decent set bonus that provides more spread healing.

Mistweaver Monk Embelishments

Embelishments are bonuses that can be put on crafted gear. These effects can have a drastic impact on the game. You are only allowed to have 2 Embellishments equipped at the same time. Here are the recommended embellishments for Mistweaver Monk:

  • Statuette of Foreseen Power Icon Statuette of Foreseen Power. This embellishment makes it so when an interrupt is used on you while you are not casting, you gain haste and are immune to all crowd control for 4 seconds. Ideally, this is crafted on rings or boots.
  • Blue Silken Lining Icon Blue Silken Lining. This embellishment gives you additional Mastery when you are above 90% health. Because you are rarely the kill target for most teams, this is a valuable effect to have.

Gems and Enchants

Here are the best enchants for a Mistweaver Monk:

  • Bracers: Enchant Bracer - Devotion of Speed Icon Enchant Bracer - Devotion of Speed
  • Cloak: Enchant Cloak - Homebound Speed Icon Enchant Cloak - Homebound Speed
  • Feet: Enchant Boots - Watcher's Loam Icon Enchant Boots - Watcher's Loam
  • Chest: Enchant Chest - Reserve of Intellect Icon Enchant Chest - Reserve of Intellect
  • Belt: Shadowed Belt Clasp Icon Shadowed Belt Clasp
  • Rings: Enchant Ring - Devotion of Versatility Icon Enchant Ring - Devotion of Versatility
  • Weapon: Enchant Weapon - Sophic Writ Icon Enchant Weapon - Sophic Writ
  • Legs: Temporal Spellthread Icon Temporal Spellthread

Zen Neltharite Icon Zen Neltharite is the best gem you can use.
