General advice

Brewmaster

  • Brewmasters should use generic agility gear and non-Strength tank gear, using a two-handed weapon or dual-wield a pair of one-handed weapons, and should wear leather.
  • Use [Provoke] to taunt.
  • Make sure to have [Summon Black Ox Statue] out for each boss.
  • Rotational abilities:
    • Chi generators (use to spend Energy and generate Chi) in order of priority:
    • Chi spenders (use when you have spare Chi):
    • Other rotational abilities:
  • Other spec-specific cooldowns and situational abilities:
    • [Dizzying Haze] is very good for kiting since it is AoE, ranged, and does a large amount of threat.
    • Use [Breath of Fire] for AoE when you don't need Chi for defensive abilities.
    • [Zen Meditation] reduces incoming damage by 90%, and redirects up to 5 incoming harmful spells from other party / raid members to you. Lasts 8 seconds, ends prematurely if you're hit by a melee attack. 3 minute cooldown. Use against heavy incoming spell damage.

Mistweaver

  • Mistweavers should use healer and / or generic caster gear, wielding a staff or a one-handed weapon and off-hand item.
  • Channel [Mana Tea] whenever you're low on mana or about to reach the stack cap. [Glyph of Mana Tea] is often preferred to channeling, as it turns Mana Tea into an instant cast consuming 2 stacks on cooldown.
  • Make sure to have [Summon Jade Serpent Statue] out for each boss.
  • Use [Revival] in emergency situations.

Ranged Healing

Single-target healing

  • Keep [Renewing Mist] applied to the target. Refresh on cooldown to generate 1 Chi.
  • Channel [Soothing Mist] for sustained healing.
  • Use [Enveloping Mist] when you have 3 Chi and the damage over time is too high for Soothing Mist alone.
  • Use [Surging Mist] as an expensive, instant cast heal.
  • Use [Life Cocoon] in emergency situations, followed immediately by some healing over time spell.

Multiple target healing

  • Spread [Renewing Mist] across targets and keep it refreshed. On cooldown, cast on a player who does not have Renewing Mist applied yet, or on one surrounded by other players, to take advantage of the spreading effect.
  • Use [Uplift] when you have 2 Chi.
  • Use [Surging Mist] as an expensive, instant cast heal.
  • Spam [Spinning Crane Kick] as an AoE heal when damage to all targets is high, but beware of the mana drain.
  • Channel [Soothing Mist] on wounded targets as filler.

Melee Healing

Windwalker

  • Windwalkers should use agility / DPS gear: a two-handed agility weapon or dual-wield a pair of one-handed agility weapons, and should wear agility leather.
  • You have no choice but to stay in [Stance of the Fierce Tiger], the only stance available.
  • Remember to keep [Legacy of the White Tiger] up.
  • Use [Flying Serpent Kick] or [Roll] to pull or get into melee range.
  • Rotational abilities:
  • Other spec-specific cooldowns and situational abilities:
    • Use [Disable] to slow and root enemies.
    • [Touch of Karma] redirects all incoming damage for 10 seconds from you to your attackers. 90 second cooldown. Use against tougher foes.
    • [Energizing Brew] regenerates 60 Energy over 6 seconds, with a 1 minute cooldown. Use on cooldown unless you're cloe to the Energy cap.
    • [Tigereye Brew] consumes all stacks to increase your damage by 2% per tack for 15 seconds. Use at 10 stacks.
