Recommended Gear for Mistweaver Monk in Shadowlands
What is the BiS Mistweaver Monk gear?
With many different sources of gearing and loot scarcity in Shadowlands, targeting your absolute Best in Slot gear isn't entirely realistic; instead, we've created a Best in Slot list from the ideal Mistweaver Monk raid drops found in Shadowlands, from Mythic Dungeons, to help you decide what to prioritize.
These lists should give you several gearing paths in Season 2 including
, Mythic+, and
. Give the following guide a read to learn about all gearing options in Shadowlands Season 2.

Sanctum of Domination Best in Slot Gear for Mistweaver Monk
This gear setup favors Critical Strike and Versatility. This has in general been our most reliable stats for healing. However,
do not sacrifice item level
. Feel free to mix in items of other secondary stats -- specifically your lowest secondary stat if possible. For specific item comparisons or general gearing questions, please utilize

Best Shards of Domination for Mistweaver Monk
Shards of Domination is a new system for
gear that provides customizable bonuses by slotting Shards of Domination into specific gear pieces from

Best Raid Shards of Domination for Mistweaver Monks
For Mistweaver Monks, we're mostly focused on a Shards of Domination that increase our healing throughput. With the current tuning this means that we will be focusing on the Unholy Rune Word 3-set bonus
and adding in the strongest gems available from the other two Rune Words.

Best Mythic+ Shards of Domination for Mistweaver Monk
Mistweaver Monks for Mythic+ use a very similar Shard of Domination setup as raid. The key difference is because the 3-set bonus will not work outside of the raid we will swap our weakest Unholy gem

Mythic+ Best in Slot Gear for Mistweaver Monk
For dungeon-only healing, you'll typically want to keep a good spread of stats. You can prioritize more Critical Strike and Versatility or Haste for damage or prioritize a more Mastery-based gearing setup for healing throughput. You should balance all stats as much as possible.
Weapon (Off Hand)
Notable Tazavesh Gear for Mistweaver Monks
With Patch 9.1 comes the release of
, a Mythic-only megadungeon for Shadowlands. Because this dungeon only has one difficulty option, all loot will drop at 226 item level.
The weapons from Tazavesh are great ways to nab a 226 weapon quickly without having to enter Mythic+. Also, if you are completing the Hard Mode version of the dungeon, the neck is a very solid option,

Best Mistweaver Monk Trinkets in Shadowlands
The below list of trinkets will primiarily focus on throughput. The ranking themselves are based on the highest ilvl version of the trinkets available, so that can change the rankings based on comparing two are differing item levels. To be sure, you should utilize
for your specific trinket comparisons.
In regard to throughput trinkets, healers tend to dislike random proc trinkets as we can't always utilize the extra throughput at that particular moment in the fight. As such, on-use effects and stat sticks are highly favored. There are some strong trinkets available with random procs.

Points is a returning currency brought back with Patch 9.0.5. With this new currency, players are able to upgrade items from Mythic+ Dungeon, either from running Mythic Keystones or from the Great Vault, up to item level 246. Similarly to
, Valor has a cap that is increased every week during the Season.
You can obtain Valor by completing Mythic+ dungeons or completing daily callings. You can learn more about Valor in our in-depth guide.
Earning and Spending Valor Points
When upgrading Mythic+ items to 220 with
, you'll prioritize items that give you the most value, which tends to be weapons and trinkets. I've noted the strongest selections for these gear slots below.
You'll then want to prioritize gear slots with higher stat budgets like helms, chests, and legs, especially if these gear slots are some of your lowest item level gear pieces. Next will be shoulders, gloves, belt, and boots. Finally, fill the remaining gear pieces by lowest item level slots. Please see the
Mythic+ Gear List
for suggestion on which specific pieces of gear to upgrade.

Items to Prioritize in the Great Vault for Mistweaver Monk in Shadowlands
When selecting your weekly reward from the Great Vault, you'll prefer higher item level pieces when possible. Prioritize weapons early, since they give the most throughput for a single item upgrade. High priority trinkets will be your next best option, followed by items with a higher stat budget (typically Helms, Chests, and Legs followed by Shoulders, Gloves, Belt, and Boots).
Continue to favor high stat budget items over low stat ones. If there's a particular item in your gear set with a low item level then you can also select that over making minor item level upgrades to other pieces. As a bit of a cheat sheet:
Weapons → High Value Trinkets → High Stat Budget Gear (Helms, Chests, and Legs) → Large Item Level Upgrades → Everything Else

In my opinion, the stat priority listed here is a tiny bit off. More in line with other guides and suggestions, critical strike is the stat that should follow multistrike. The exception to this is, of course, when using the
talent. Or, sometimes when healing 5 mans, higher haste levels can come in handy too.
There really aren't very many spells that haste interacts with while in
. Critical strike, on the other hand, interacts with them all and helps generate additional
The dungeon gloves you have listed are cloth ones, I think
are the ones you meant to put?
Why is First Class Healing Distributor C-tier but Sinful Gladiator's Insignia of Alacrity A-tier?
247 haste vs 170 int
Both have had roughly 45% uptime for me so they seem pretty equal.
Can you change drop location for M+ from boss to dungeon?
