Mistweaver Monk Spells and Abilities

Updated 2 years, 11 months ago for patch 7.3.2 by Tyler. View the change log.

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. Group-healing spells should be used when most of the group is taking sustained damage, you should supplement these spells with your main spell. Single-target healing spells will be used when you're healing one player taking damage, again, they should be supplemented by your main spell. Emergencies occur when a player is taking critical damage and at risk of dying if you try to heal them with any of your other spells, these spells are generally used less often than all others. Major cooldowns can be used to make it through particularly tough situations, but only if your other spells aren't enough on their own. Utility spells won't see usage in every situation, but knowing the situations they're useful in is very important.

Main Spell
Renewing Mist

Vivify, Essence Font, Refreshing Jade Wind (Talent), Chi Burst (Talent)

Enveloping Mist, Effuse, Zen Pulse (Talent), Sheilun's Gift (Artifact Ability), Soothing Mist

*I listed Tiger's Lust under Utility instead of Mobility because I find myself using it more on other people to get out of roots/snares or if they are slow to move.
