PvP Talents for Mistweaver Monks

You can choose 3 of the following PvP talents. Each of them has their uses, but some are better for certain strategies than others. The top three choices are the most useful, but can be replaced with other PvP talents, depending on your team's goal.


Mandatory PvP Talents

Chrysalis Icon Chrysalis reduces the cooldown of Life Cocoon Icon Life Cocoon. This is an overall great talent so you can use Life Cocoon more often throughout an arena match.


Situational PvP Talents

Zen Focus Tea Icon Zen Focus Tea helps Mistweavers deal with one of their greatest weaknesses, being interrupted. Because most healing spells Mistweaver have are used while channeling Soothing Mist Icon Soothing Mist, being interrupted is very common. Use Zen Focus Tea Icon Zen Focus Tea versus teams with multiple interrupts, especially verses classes with long interrupts (Mages, Warlocks, Rogues).

Peaceweaver Icon Peaceweaver reduces the cooldown of Revival Icon Revival and makes you immune to magical effects for a short period afterwards. This is an amazing PvP talent to use versus teams with magic damage and in Rated Battlegrounds.

Grapple Weapon Icon Grapple Weapon disarms the enemy for 6 seconds. This can be crucial utility against teams with a melee DPS on it. This is also a great option when playing against Death Knights. When you Disarm them, they will not be able to heal and can result in you killing them.

Eminence Icon Eminence allows you to use Transcendence: Transfer Icon Transcendence: Transfer while stunned. This talent can be useful versus teams with mobile melee specs on them (Demon Hunter, Windwalker, Feral Druid) or against teams that rely on setup to get kills (Jungle and RMP).
