Some of you are having issues with this macro and mana. It needs to be said that I wrote it for quick and smooth target switching to apply Soothing Mist onto the new target; I did not write this macro for mana conservation, but even that can be gleaned too during combat (more on that momentarily).
With this macro (and any other healing macro), less is more. Less grip O’death on your spam key = more Soothing Mist channeling. More SM channels = more mana for you during the times that you need it.
So, if you are mashing your spam button like a patient at a proctologist with long hangnails, then….there’s your OOM problem right there; you can’t be a pillow-biter and roll with this macro.
Those of you who are doing this, you simply are not allowing your mana to regen during the times that you are able to by just letting Soothing Mist channel. Relax, you are supposed to be master of Zen; of inner peace and serenity, so breathe and let the Force be with you. Make Yoda proud.
Or was that Kermit? You know, they kinda look the same…
At 80% or more of your target’s HP, you should just want to “kiss” your target with a Soothing Mist channel; your statue and the SM channel itself can work wonders. If there is more incoming damage you can THEN “prime the pump” for more heals going out.
Because you were a smart puppy, you casted only when needed and channeled Soothing Mist when you could; you now have mana to spare for the extra incoming damage.
Having said that, and in light of the GCD, this macro will still occasionally hard cast Vivs and/or EMs. There is nothing that I can think of around this issue. Like a bad lawyer, I am all out of creative ideas to solve Blizz’s Ancient Mistweaver Arts problem that it dropped in our laps this expac.
Even so, I hope this FYI tut helps you all in successfully playing your MWs this
bloody, garbo, fail, uh, interesting expac.
Note the talent changes:
-Keep Mist Wrap; anything else will break the Soothing Mist channel and you will have more hard casts.
-Can take Rising Mist instead of Focused Thunder if you play more of a kickweaving style
-Suggest you take Statue instead of the BIG CHICKEN so you do not OOM too fast.
-EF is no longer in the macro; put it on a separate keybind and use as needed.
*PVP Talents: WotC and whatever else works for you
*If you lose sound while running this macro, make sure that “Prevent Sound Errors” box is unchecked in GSE>Options>General>Gameplay Options
*Mod + Shift = Transcendence
*Mod + Alt = Revival
Let me know how it works out for you.
***End of Updates***
My ghetto-ass macro for what *used* to be an awesome/fun spec to play before Blizz made AMA baseline (screws with the timing of the rotation). It is about as smooth as I can get it (impossible to get it perfect because of the constant target switching + the AMA aspect of MW casts).
Aggravating to a perfectionist.
Because Blizz has a penchant for deleting the fun in any given class at any time, I won’t be rolling a MW until they fix Soothing Mists and add some mobility back to the spec, but perhaps somebody will use it for leveling/tooling around in PVP.
As for talents: use those that are numbered in the macro.
The fight/Way of the Crane portion of the macro:
Any chance you could give this another try John Q? I hear Mistweaver is crazy good right now.AbbyFirst SergeantSeptember 17, 2018 at 10:44 amPost count: 200

I second this.
Q, I know that most of your macros are intended with the purpose of PVP in mind, but Mist is extremely strong right now.
Healing Mythic Taloc, manually, at 16K. Would be nice to see something competitive.MdkGruntSeptember 17, 2018 at 3:50 pmPost count: 5

12-13s with this macro? Never! How are u playging with it to get 12-12 keys to work?NikkjGruntSeptember 29, 2018 at 10:40 amPost count: 15
Been using this for m+ typically 12-13’s because mistweaver is so strong right now.
Doing about 23-27K HPS. Still does alright, although it’s not optimized, only downside is it OOM’s fast as hell.
Wish you’d update this :'(
RiO suggest other info then you say, your WW game seams excellent tho.
