Shy's MistWeaver Monk Stat Priority

I was reading the mistweaver guide at wowinsider and I came to the conclusion that I should review the stat priority I posted a few posts ago.

So for my Mistweaver I will be going with:

Spirit up the wazoo > 8.32% haste > Mastery > Crit > Int
  • Spirit because I have always been, and probably will always be, a thirsty healer. 
  • 8.32% haste because the 5% haste buff is not always available, and haste is always useful, though not as useful beyond the extra tick
  • Mastery because I do have a good raid team normally, and they will stand in little green orbs
  • Crit because double healing numbers are nomnomNOM
  • Then int because...well, bigger heals are nice and all, but a primary stat is way more expensive than a secondary stat and it doesn't do anything for my manapool anymore anyways. 
The other thing I realized when reading this guide is that I should jab more, jab all the time and constantly. It gives the nummy chi's to spend on heals without having to spend mana. 

I also have to set up some weakauras:
  • One that shows me when my Serpent's Zeal buff is about to run out. 
  • One that reminds me to cast Renewing Mist on cooldown (I didn't have to deal with that sort of stuff as a priest)
  • One that tracks when I need to explode my Zen Sphere because, unlike the writer of the wowinsider guide, I do like this talent. I find this really really pleasant in stacked up groups, I cast it on a rogue in the melee and make it explode when it's close to expiration, while I keep my renewing mist travelling around in the ranged with the glyph for example. And I love being able to set it up before hand. 
  • One that alerts me that Grapple Weapon is available again, if it goes off it increases healing after all
Things I should explore and play with:
  • Xuen - I love the tiger in the dps spec, such a gorgeous pet to have around. So I really will have to try out how well it does for a healer. 
  • Glyph of Surging Mist - I've been avoiding this glyph so far, but it seems that none of the major glyphs is really something I want in my playstyle so maybe this is an option.

  1. Xuen owns. Even when the other two talents are used optimally they still don't beat out the eminence heals xuen does. So unless you're specifically picking RJW for a stack focused fight, xuen is the clear winner. And even in a stack centered fight, xuen is still close.
