Hey i was wondering what exp you guys got about which weapon to choice. Staff vs 1-hander, also how high prio is dps vs stats for a mistweaver(Could it be better with an agi 2-hander for higher dps). In the same subject, the Cranedancers Staff vs any HC weapon. The staff have a lot higher dps(2910) vs a normal 2 hander from hc(1642)?

What do you guys think?

Fistweaving is generally low healing so even though the Cranedancer does so much - you'll find you won't be using it much at all since ranged healing is superior in everything except Chi regen.

I'd say just go for the highest stat options, atm I'm personally trying to go for 1h/OH since they offer me the highest amount of spirit and shiz :p
I personally go for Staves, it's a lot easier to upgrade (Only need to find one item, rather than 2) it look nicer (The single weapon on the back looks a bit weird) and tends to have nice stats on (1h + Offhand tends to favour Haste, which is currently the weakest stat for Mistweavers after the breakpoint.

Fistweaving I'm not too sure about, people say it's weak because the DPS on caster gear is so low and that DPS gear doesn't have enough spirit to sustain, I've thought about a DPS staff + Healer gear but unsure if it'll work...

Gotta agree with that, which is why I used Tremendous Tankard O' Terror as transmog. <3

Gotta disagree. Melee healing incorprated with only few actual healing spells like chi wave and renewing mists is much effective way to heal than just using the spells.

As for the question here. 1h + offhand offers you higher damage to eminence but staves usually have higher int as them combined so that offers higher healing by the healing spells. I use stave even that i heal with eminence.

You haven't even raided normal/HC to see the insane burst damage cast on everyone - melee healing is too low to heal bursts, but you can do a certain degree of sustained healing with it yes, just nothing to save anyone in an AoE situation :p

This pretty much, it's okay for helping out a little bit on DPS while on a low damage phase but once the damage starts coming in you're not going to be doing the healing required while fistweaving. It's just not possible.

Melee healing is fun in heroic dungeons.

anything after that, you use melee healing in low damage periodes when you don't need to drink mana. go 1 hander with an offhand. I'd love to tell you otherwise but reality is, melee healing was fun while it lasted but until we get fixed (and not some stupid buff but true fixing the mechanics) you will be a ranged healer 90% of the time

Fistweaving they are both the same. For CJL filler a stave is slightly better. However nazgrim 1h plus jugger off hand has better gem colours + off hand enchant. Overall about the same unless you plan on using CJL instead of soothing most of the time.
