A couple of weeks ago I preordered WoD and used the lvl90 boost on my lvl60 monk, and chose Brewmaster as my spec. Started tanking in LFR and got gear there. Now I'm trying healing, with LFR and timeless isle I've gotten some gear for this.
I checked the mistweaver guide for patch 5.4 on this forums, but still wanted to ask for some advice. Keep in mind this is only for LFR or possibly Flex (inb4 LFR is not real raiding so just do whatever. I actually want to learn ).
So here are some questions :
1.- Am I supossed to ONLY used Surging Mist while channeling Soothing Mist so it's instant cast? Let's say I see some dps drop down to 30% health and I want to heal this person, should I channel Soothing Mist and instantly use Surging Mist and stop channeling, or just cast Surging Mist right away?. Same question applies for Enveloping Mist.
2.- I feel that Mistweaver raid healing is a little lacking, but I want to believe it's just that I'm doing something wrong. My biggest problem is that I think the biggest AoE heal we have is Uplift, but that only heals targets that have Renewing Mist rolling on them. Asides from that I got Chi Torpedo and Spinning Crane Kick, but both of those depend on where I'm standing and where the targets I want to heal are, and then I have Zen Sphere, which I'd have to time right so it blows up at the right time. So, any advice on AoE healing? I usually keep Renewing Mists on both tanks and then it spreads,but then again, sometimes I don't manage to heal more than 6-7 people with Uplift unless I use Thunder Focus Tea and then Uplift so Renewing Mist spreads out more.
3.- Is it worth placing Healing Spheres around?. I feel that it depends too much on the people's awareness. If the person doesn't run through the Sphere, then it just heals for a little bit, and only after 1 minute. (Remember this is LFR mostly so I can't really tell people "hey I just put a Sphere next to you, run through it!"
And that's pretty much it. Feel free to give me more advice on Mistweaver healing if you feel it's necessary, any tips or tricks are appreciated . ( For the record I've healed before with a Paladin, back in Cataclysm, mostly through Dragon Soul, if that helps at all lol ).
