Mistweaver Monk Spells

Welcome to the Mistweaver Monk Spells page, where we go over all the important spells you’ll need as a Mistweaver Monk healer.

We provide you with a visual icon for each spell helping you to associate spells with their icons, the name of the spell, a description for what we believe is best use, the level the spell is gained and the recommended key binding for that spell. Please note that all parts of this page are a guide only and you’re free to use a spell how you wish and key bind your spells any way you want. We don’t guarantee success through this spell use/key binding as everyone is different but hopefully it will help.

Mistweaver Monk Spells

These are the spells that provide your character the ability to keep yourself and party/raid members alive. Read through them and get well acquainted with the way they work with each other. Some of these spells will have cooldown times and some will not.

Mistweaver Monk Healing Spells

Level Gained

Recommended Keybind


A quick heal. As a Mistweaver, this spell also heals all allies with Renewing Mist on them. Use when you have a max. amount of Renewing Mist out to maximize the heal.


Soothing Mist

A channeled spell. While channeling, you may instant cast Enveloping Mist and Vivify. Should always be used prior to casting Enveloping Mist. Should only be used prior to casting Vivify if you need to continue healing the original target.


Enveloping Mist

A strong heal over time (HoT) with a long cast time and increases healing received by the target by 30% for the 6 seconds. Good for when a tank is going to take a big hit or a party member has been damaged considerably and isn’t being damaged. We recommend casting Soothing Mist to ensure an instant cast of this spell at all times.


Renewing Mist

This spell should be cast as much as possible at all times. Keep both charges off cooldown. Targets who have Renewing Mist when Vivify is cast will also be healed by Vivify. Thunder Tea Focus boosts Renewing Mist by extending it’s duration.


Essence Font

An AoE heal. Move around while casting to cover as many members as possible. Applies a HoT as well.

For those party/raid members that have this HoT, when you cast Vivify, Enveloping Mist or Renewing Mist on that target, then that target (and only that target) is healed by your Mastery: Gust of Mists twice, instead of once.



A strong raid-wide cooldown that will heal all allies and also dispel all magic, poisons and diseases from those allies.


Mistweaver Monk Utility/Cooldown Spells

These are spells that you are able to use once every once in a while, depending on the spell. They can help you to get out of a bind, help your raid or enhance your healing. There are even defensive spells to help keep yourself alive.

Mistweaver Monk Utility/Cooldown Spells

Level Gained

Recommended Keybind


Super fun movement ability. Use it to get out of trouble or get closer to your allies for healing.

Mouse Wheel Up


Resurrect your fellow party/raid members.


Zen Pilgrimage

This spell can be used to get to your class order hall.



Removes all Magic, Posions and Diseases from a single target.



A great crowd control effect that you can use on an enemy that might be targeting you. Then the tank can pick it up.


Life Cocoon

A single-target cooldown to mitigate heavy damage to an individual. Ideal for tanks. This can be cast while channelling Soothing Mist, without interrupting it. It also increases the strength of your HoTs. Cast Soothing Mist, then Life Cocoon and follow up with an Enveloping Mist for good single target healing/mitigation.


Thunder Focus Tea

Boosts your next spell use of one of the following:


Leg Sweep

A handy spell to use against enemy mobs that might be hitting you, giving the tank a chance to pick them up.


Fortifying Brew

An individual spell to reduce your own damage. Use this when you’re taking heavy damage.



Place this where you know will be a safe place prior to trouble. When required to get out of a pinch, use  Transcendence: Transfer to return to this safe place.


Transcendence: Transfer

Use this to swap position with your previous “safely placed” Transcendence spirit.


Mistweaver Monk Passive Abilities

The following abilities are Passive, in which case you need not worry about them too much as they’re automatic, however it’s worth knowing them as they do effect your play style.

Mistweaver Monk Passive Abilities

Level Gained

Recommended Keybind

Teachings of the Monastery

This gives a flat 15% chance to reset the cooldown on your Rising Sun Kick. Each time you strike with Tiger Palm, you gain a buff that causes your next Blackout Kick to strike an additional time, up to a total of 3. So without this buff, your Blackout Kick will strike once. So, after striking with Tiger Palm, your Blackout Kick will strike for 2 times in total, after 2 Tiger Palms, it will strike for 3 in total and after 3 Tiger Palms, 4 strikes in total (this is the max). Paired with the talent Spirit of the Crane, which returns 0.65% mana for each Blackout Kick, this could then return 1.95% with a full 3 stacks of Teachings of the Monastery.


Mystic Touch

A beneficial passive for all dungeons and raids, providing a 5% damage increase to an enemy for the whole group when you strike them using your physical attacks, which you usually would.


Mastery: Gust of Mists

Provides a small heal (based on mastery stat) to only the receiving target of Renewing Mist (initial application only), Enveloping Mist and Vivify. If that target has the HoT that is applied by Essence Font, then that target will receive 2 small heals instead of one.


Mistweaver Monk Damage Spells

Particularly unique to the healing Mistweaver Monk is the use of Physical Melee attacks to gain beneficial buffs and also to heal allies through Fistweaving. Here are those spells:

Mistweaver Monk Damage Spells

Level Gained

Recommended Keybind

Tiger Palm

A melee range spell that when used, gives you a stack of Teachings of the Monastery.


Blackout Kick

A melee range spell that has a chance to reset the cooldown of your Rising Sun Kick.


Rising Sun Kick

A melee spell which through the talent Rising Mist, heals all allies with current Renewing Mist, Enveloping Mist or Essence Font HoTs on them, as well as extend their duration.


Crackling Jade Lightning

Only use if you’re being attacked and need to knockback an enemy.
