Healer Rotation & Cooldowns
During combat you are constantly making decisions for what to cast next. Knowing what to do and when is critical for being effecting at healing. This rotation guide should help give a basic understanding of what to do, what's most important, and how to prioritize Mistweaver Monk abilities and cooldowns.
Single Target Healing Priority
There's no set rotation to follow as a Mistweaver Monk, rather, try and familiarize yourself with the mechanics and suggested uses for each healing spell.
HoTs: Spells that provide healing over time and special effects.
- Soothing Mist used as a bread-and-butter heal for moderate damage and to allow for instant use of Enveloping Mist and Vivify.
- Enveloping Mist is used to help recover from higher damage on a target being healed by Soothing Mist.
- Renewing Mist maintained on as many targets as possible and to proc additional healing for Vivify.
Direct Heals: Efficient heals to use on one target.
Healing is a very situational activity. Learn to use your HoTs and direct heals by following the advice above. Remember to consume the procs created by Renewing Mist with Vivify. Also, remember to constantly be channeling Soothing Mist by actively using your other healing spells.
Multi Target/Group Healing
Try to use Essence Font as often as possible while continuing the single target rotation. It is helpful to maintain Renewing Mist on several targets to increase Vivify output during AoE healing. Remember to use these procs as soon as possible.
Life Cocoon Use to save a player from death. Revival Use for raid healing or to remove encounter specific DoTs/debuffs. Thunder Focus Tea Use on cooldown to buff your next healing ability. Summon Jade Serpent Statue Maintain at all times (if selected). Invoke Chi-ji the Red Crane Use for burst healing (if selected). Mana Tea Use for burst healing (if selected).
