Mistweaver Monk Spells and Abilities

Updated 1 year, 4 months ago by Tyler.

Below you’ll find details on how each Mistweaver Monk spell functions and what its best use conditions are.  Monks have a very versatile toolkit that makes them very good at healing in many situations, while having the most mobility options of any healer.  Mistweavers can excel at both Single-target healing, AoE healing, or DPSing while healing based on talent choices. If you have any questions or feedback you can leave a comment at the bottom of the page or tweet @Daemagor. Your main spell should be the one you're using most often during most situations.

Mistweaver Monk Healing Tips and Tricks

Updated 1 year, 4 months ago by Tyler.

I've detailed some of the most common situations below, as well as how to heal them. In the heat of battle, you may not always be able to stick to these things exactly, but with a little practice they should become second nature.

Ravenholdt Manor lore and history - Field Photographer Friday

Posted 1 year, 4 months ago by Preston.

Field Photographer Friday is a weekly look at the lore and history behind locations around World of Warcraft. This week, we're taking a look at Ravenholdt Manor!

Ravenholdt Manor is located in the mountains between Hillsbrad Foothills and The Hinterlands on the Eastern Kingdoms continent. Not much is known about the early days of the Manor, but the building’s architecture along with its location means it was probably part of the Alterac Kingdom around the time of the Second War. This human kingdom came to an end following the Second War, when it’s leader, Aliden Perenolde, was thrown out by the other human kingdoms. Aliden went on to form The Syndicate, a criminal faction of humans who see the Alliance as their mortal enemies and the Horde as nothing more than brutes to be used as slaves.

The Scarab Dais lore and history - Field Photographer Friday

Posted 1 year, 4 months ago by Preston.

Field Photographer Friday is a weekly look at the lore and history behind locations around World of Warcraft. This week, we're taking a look at the Scarab Dais!

The Scarab Dais is located in southern Silithus on the Kalimdor continent, just outside of Ahn’Qiraj. The Dais, and the Scarab Gong it holds are relics of the Qiraji empire that were reconstituted by Fandral Staghelm and Anachronos following the War of the Shifting Sands nearly 1,000 years before World of Warcraft’s time. Following the War, the duo and their armies created a magical barrier around the walls of Ahn’qiraj and set the Scarab Gong atop the Dais to be used as the mechanism to open the Scarab Gate, should the need ever arise. The Gong has seemingly been guarded by Jonathan the Revelator, a Watcher from the Bronze dragonflight, since it was put in place.

Blackrock Mountain is located between the Burning Steppes and Searing Gorge on the Eastern Kingdoms continent. The mountain first formed as a volcano during the War of the Three Hammers when the Dark Iron clan of dwarves summoned the Firelord Ragnaros from his prison beneath Azeroth. Ragnaros bursting through the earth decimated what was once part of the Redridge Mountains, turning it into the fiery zones we know today and giving way to the large spire of Blackrock Mountain in the center.

Posted 1 year, 5 months ago by Preston.

Field Photographer Friday is a weekly look at the lore and history behind locations around World of Warcraft. This week, we're taking a look at the Caverns of Time!

The Caverns of Time is an expansive cave system located in Tanaris and is home to the bronze dragonflight. The dragonflight was blessed by the titan Aman’thul with the powers of time travel and a mastery of temporal magic. They use these powers to guard time against meddling from the infinite dragonflight and others wishing to change past events. The Caverns also house the Hourglass of Time, a powerful artifact created by Nozdormu, the leader of the bronze dragonflight, to hold the sands of time. Inside the Caverns, you can see streams of energy flowing to and from the Hourglass, with some of the energies flowing from what appears to be space itself open in the sides of the Caverns.
