WoW Arena | Loony's Mistweaver Monk
| GEAR | ESSENCES | MACROS | COMMON MISTAKES |
Martin "Loony" Petterson is a legendary healer in the World of Warcraft Arena scene. He’s arguably the best in Europe, if not the world- Which we’ve heard many commentators mention in the past year. With his vast knowledge of the game and it’s mechanics, as well as his eye for even the smallest details, Loony adds exactly what Wildcard needs to our team! With this guide we hope to see you take some valuable information on playing the role of a Mistweaver Monk!
Loony says that Mistweaver Monks are extremely versatile healers in the current meta. You have good mobility, extremely good healing and mana, some good short duration crowd control with incap and legsweep- There’s great survivability because you can stack versatility to the max. A small weakness is maybe to face comps where you can't utilize the counteract magic honor talent, or a frost dk cleave which will increase your mobility spells cd by a lot cause of delirium/heartstop, but that's mostly if you play MW with 2 other meeles where you get tunneled all game.
Increases Enveloping Mist's duration by 1 sec and its healing bonus by 10%.
Chi Torpedo OR Tiger’s Lust
Torpedoes you forward a long distance and increases your movement speed by 30% for 10 sec, stacking up to 2 times.
Increases a friendly target's movement speed by 70% for 6 sec and removes all roots and snares.
Reduces the mana cost of your spells by 50% for 12 sec.
Ring of Peace ORSong or Chi-Ji
Form a Ring of Peace at the target location for 5 sec. Enemies that enter will be ejected from the Ring. Nearby enemies will be knocked out of the Ring of Peace.
Conjures a cloud of hypnotic mist that slowly travels forward. Enemies touched by the mist fall asleep, Disoriented for 20 sec.
Drink a healing elixir, healing you for 15% of your maximum health.
Summon Jade Serpent Statue
Summons a Jade Serpent Statue at the target location. When you channel Soothing Mist, the statue will also begin to channel Soothing Mist on your target, healing for (16% of Spell power) every 1 sec.
Thunder Focus Tea now empowers your next 2 spells.
Loony made choosing your traits really easy, telling us to take the following.
3x Burst of life
3x Heart of darkness
3x burst of life with secret infusion/uplifted spirits
Again Loony made this fairly simply for us as well!
Versatility> Mastery > Haste > Crit
Loony tells us that the following gear works best for Mistweaver Monks.
Shoulders - Pauldrons of The Great Convergence
Head - Gibbering Maw
Chest - Darkheart Robe
Loony says that Vitality Conduit is an incredibly strong major essence for all healers that should be used when you need additional healing output or simply an extra defensive cooldown to help your team survive against opposing crowd control chains.
Conflict and strife
Loony reccommeneds Conflict and Strife because it isn’t used too often, but can be considered if you need the additional versatility to help you survive when being stunned against high burst comps, such as rogue mage.
Memory of Lucid Dream
Loony says that Memory of Lucid Dream is the best pick for sustaining your mana in longer dampening games against comps without high burst damage, such as shadowplay.
Crucible of Flame
Looney says that Crucible of Flame is not frequently selected, but can be used to increase your damage in 2s.
Vision of Perfection
Looney says Vision of Perfection can be picked versus double casters (Mainly elemental versions, like ele + warlock/boomkin) Its very rng, but can pay off because it can dispell dots and crowd control frequently.
Conflict and Strife - Always Take
Vitality - Always Take
Spirit of Preservation

/cast [target=focus] Paralysis
Loony tells us that some fairly common mistakes Mistweaver Monks make are things such as remembering to replace transcendence (monk port) after using it. He says “don't try to waste cocoon even though it has a fairly short cd because the enemy team is always trying to play offensive for a kill after you used it.” and continued on saying “Another mistake is to forget to keep your renewing mist up on all your teammates vs a warlock who keeps dots on your team, and high aoe damage. It will keep them very healthy because of the counteract magic pvp talent.” Loony also recommends Not using ring of peace as an interrupt, and instead, as an example, use it to knock casts from a healer. And last but not least he reminds us that when you’re not a target for most parts of the arena, like when you play with 2 casters, then you should use your fortifying brew before you use cocoon because cocoon is based from your hp.
With this information we hope to see a rise on the Mistweaver Monk play! Did you give any of Loony’s tips a try? Let us know how they worked for you! #stackthedeck
