Your right on one thing, I haven't done enough higher end to be writing a complete guide on healing as normal, but yet, I don't see any up to date guides here. Allot of people are still absolutely silly questions are still being asked that anyone that has a mistweaver can answer. My method does work, at least for me and for now. If my mind gets changed, then yes, I will change the guide. I have no problem at all assuming I am wrong. But as of now, this setup allows me to heal for the most I have ever healed, and consistently as a mistweaver.
Here is the challenge, if you think you can do a better guide go ahead. I will read it and if I like it I will happily promote it over mine.
I never made a claim that I know everything there was to healing. I make no such lofty assumptions of myself. Quite frankly, although I think I am at least decent, I know there are a lot of areas that I need to improve on. And quite frankly, some of the stuff I believe are wrong. I, under no circumstances, can't possibly consider myself qualified enough to make a guide.
The same, however, applies to you. You really do not have the qualifications to make a guide that shows players learning the role how to play their spec. You don't know haste breakpoints. You don't know fight mechanics. You don't know the balance of secondary stats. You haven't even experienced some of the fights that much, MUCH more experienced players have already weighed in on in this thread alone. There is literally no reason to post something under the guise of a guide just so you can say "This is what works for me".
It is! I never claimed to be omnipotent or the leading authority on monks, this is what has and continues to work for me, in the gear I have, with what I need to do. I dont use information from number crunchers or other such things becuase of a few reasons.
one, most of them are out of date since the new changes to mistweaving, and two, the few times I have looked them up to see their opinion and implemented it, it worked only in a very specific sets of situations.
Opinions do not belong in guides. Guides are based around evidence and facts about the class, given to inform the reader about how the class works as a whole. I understand that there are a few mistweaver guides out there that are out of date, but they don't include opinions that aren't backed up by facts--something you failed to do.
Agreed, totally, unless something changes for the much better with fistweaving channel healing is so much more effective. I didnt write this guide with progression in mind because honestly, I am not a progression healer and never claimed to be.
But you need to write your guide with progression in mind, because there are a lot of players that want to get into progression raiding--that's one of the main reasons they would read a guide in the first place, to get better and gain progression. You're completely missing the point of a guide. It's not some glory-seeking project that you get infinite amounts of praise from, it's a tool to help players improve.
