Advanced: Night Fae

by

Welcome to PeakofSerenity’s Mistweaver Monk PvE Night Fae Guide. This guide is designed to be a more in-depth look at the Night Fae Covenant. Navigate quickly to the section you need using the sidebar on the right.

For information on how the Covenants compare to each other, see the PvE Quick Guide.

This guide has been updated for Patch 9.1 and is regularly updated when discussion, theorycrafting, or testing yields new information.

Abilities

Class Ability

The Night Fae grant the ability Faeline Stomp, which costs 4% of your mana and has a 30 second cooldown. On use, it creates a Faeline in front of you, healing up to 5 friendlies on top of it for 91% on the initial hit as well as dealing 40% of your attack power as damage to enemies. Additionally, it heals 5 allies for an Essence Font bolt. When standing on the Faeline, your abilities have a 6% chance to reset Faeline Stomp’s cooldown. 

Signature Ability

Members of the Night Fae also receive the ability Soulshape, which, when activated, teleports you 15 yards forward and gives you 50% move speed for 12 seconds. During these 12 seconds, you can press Soulshape again to teleport forward an additional time, on a 4 second cooldown. Overall, this isn’t too desirable as a Mistweaver as we already have Roll/Chi Torpedo and Transcendence. The one niche this could fill is to teleport over a mechanic that you can’t proactively set up Transcendence for. Soulshape is on a 1.5 minute cooldown.

Recommended Path

 

Ratings
  • Overall: Not half bad.
  • Raiding: Decent. Provides a cheat death, convert some of your natural overhealing into a shield while also providing a good shield..
  • Mythic+: Alright to meh. Could easily not be able to pass vers around which drops a lot of power.
  • Defense: Very nice. A cheat death and on top of that you get some extra vers on you and allies.
  • Utility: Nice. You have evened the playing field against gravity.

 

Recommended Path
