Standard Class Tree Talent
This is what I’d consider the cookie cutter ‘standard’ class talent build which has good damage and also good healing. There are a few talents I’d consider locked in for Mistweaver, these being, Close to Heart, Save Them All, Vivacious Vivification.
However, talents such as Close to Heart and Generous Pour do not stack with other monks. So, if you have multiple in the raid you can communicate and choose talents depending on what the other monk or you prefer to take/where you’d need to drop points.
In general, the most situational talents are based on preference of what you, the group or the content you are playing requires. You can drop things like Fatal Touch, Resonant Fists, Eye of the Tiger and Summon White Tiger Statue for either more defensive options such as Fortifying Brew, utility options such as Paralysis or an extra roll with Celerity, etc. It can be very flexible depending on your group's needs.
The first build is the most common and has the highest HPS ceiling you’ll need to try and pair your Sheilun’s gift casts before important spikes like Chi’ji or revival or your vivify windows preferably at high renewing mist counts to make the most use out of this build. You’ll also typically want to mana tea on cool down unless you know theres a big spike in damage incoming where you can make use out of dumping mana into your vivify ramps.
Raiding (Option 2)
This second build we are using runs upwelling and is typically considered easier to play but with a bit lower of a hps ceiling than the build above, but still perfectly fine for most content. Pretty much the same style as above except now you’d like to pair TFT with essence font and use FLS to activate ancient teachings in the downtime.
This second build is a more generic Mythic+ talent build focusing on Faeline Stomp.
It is important to note that Zen Pulse is easily interchangeable with Font of Life or Uplifted Spirits and similarly, you can swap Jade Bond with Gift of the Celestials, depending on the needs of the key/AoE situation.
If you need more frequent healing, take Gift of the Celestials. If you need a stronger Chi-Ji but slightly less often, take Jade Bond.
You can also drop Mana Tea for Spirit of the Crane if you need or prefer a different mana option. You can even consider dropping both for more healing, such as Mist Wrap, if you find you don’t struggle with the mana needed.
You can also remove Rising Mist for Invoker’s Delight if you find you want more DPS over HPS.
There are a lot of options for Mythic+ and our general AoE builds, so don’t be afraid to be flexible and try out different talents.
A quick tip for Mythic+ is that your Faeline Stomp will be your main activator for Ancient Teachings. You will want to rarely cast Essence Font unless you are moving with nothing else to do, you can cast or if you need the Essence Font on a few ranged that didn’t get hit by the bolts etc. But in general, we don’t cast Essence Font in Mythic+ now.
