    I would just quickly like to know if there is a reason that the Mistweaver is struggling with mana until the spirit is at shockingly high levels. I have experimented with my mistweaver (at lower levels) and i have found that trying to maintain a good amount of healing is really quite difficult. It may just be me and my playstyle but I am not totally sure. Any help from the people out there would be appreciated

      I haven’t had any trouble from going OOM as a Mistweaver (only ever happened to me twice, heal-tanking about six mobs at one time), and that was even before I got Mana Tea. Mistweaver has flexible, rapid healing, and very strong HoTs. This specialization of Monk, like the other two, will take some getting used to. What it lacks in damage dealing abilities, however, makes for a very simple rotation set between either DPS or healing. Mistweaver is meant to be a meele-ranged healer, but can do decent damage at a distance with Crackling Jade Lightning (if you really, really have to stay out of meele).

      Spirit is your primary stat for three reasons as a Mistweaver, and two of them aren’t even mentioned in this guide. Those three reasons are your mana regen (the ‘duh’ purpose), and while in Serpent Stance, you get hit and expertise rating equal to half of your Spirit from GEAR and BUFFS. That includes food/elixers/scrolls/spells. This makes Mistweaver a capable leveling class even if it’s “not recommended”, because you can actually HIT MOBS HIGHER THAN YOUR LEVEL more often than others who will have either significantly less hit rating, or none at all. It also means that you need to stack much less hit and expertise, or you many not even have to at all, getting it exclusively from an OMG-high Spirit stat.

      Maintaining good healing isn’t difficult for any healing spec unless the situation is going to be a wipe from the start. Just remember that Mistweaver at lower levels is a single target healer until you get Renewing Mists and Uplift (which burst heals anyone affected by Renewing Mists).

      Recommended Major Glyphs from me are Surging Mist (which makes it a nice oh-crap burst for the one taking the most damage, and no need to target them to use it), Life Cocoon (yes, being able to cast a bubble while CC’ed can help), and Retreat (you, as a healer, DO NOT WANT THREAT ON YOU).
      Recommended Minor Glyphs as a Mistweaver? There aren’t any. I use Zen Flight, and will also use Spirit Roll (mobility after death ftw!) and Jab for my others when I get them.

      Stats the guide recommends actually look alright.

    With the increased cost of Jab with the hotfixes of the 29th of November, you should always use expel harm before jab does more damage and costs less.

    Dedralie has a nice post about the 5.1 patch and how it affects mistweavers.
