Macros are simple, in-game tools which allow you to sequence spells together, create custom names and icons, cast different abilities depending on whether the target is friendly or hostile, define targeting conditions, and much, much more. While the amount of options can be complex, making them is easy, so in this section we'll go over how to set them up yourself.
To open the in-game Macro interface, type "/macro" or "/m".
Choose between the General and Character-specific macro tabs. Then click the "New" button on the macro window.
Choose a Name and an Icon so you can easily recognize your macro, then click "Okay."
Select your new macro and use the text editor below to tell it what to do. If copying ours below, you can simply copy/paste the text in.
Click the "Save" button, and drag your macro icon onto your bars, which will allow it to be used just like any other spell from your spellbook.
To close the window, click "Exit", or just press Escape.

As a healer, you have to split your attention between what is happening during an encounter and the health of your group. Hard targeting an ally before each spell cast can really limit your reaction time, while having an enemy targeted makes it so that you can easily switch to damaging them in downtime, or at the least keep an eye on them for important information like buffs, cast bars, etc. Mouseover macros allow you to heal the raid frame of a player your mouse is over without having to target them specifically. This needs to be done for every targeted spell.
Replace Soothing Mist with any other spell. Side note;

target if you're still mousing over them. Moving your mouse away can break your channel to hard cast those spells on another target.
is a very important spell in raids that should not be interrupted by another spell cast. With
talents, you want to cast
Rising Sun Kick
as soon as it's over, without losing out on any healing or HoT effects that
can heal and extend.
/cast Rising Sun Kick
This can be changed to other spells so
isn't interrupted by changing
Rising Sun Kick
in the macro.
Mistweavers have two talent rows that are solely active abilities, where changing out the abilities can get annoying. Thankfully, macros are able to change themselves based on what talent is used.
Level 40 Talents
/cast Healing Elixir
/cast Diffuse Magic
/cast Dampen Harm
Level 45 Talents
/cast Summon Jade Serpent Statue
/cast Refreshing Jade Wind
/cast Invoke Chi-Ji, the Red Crane
Addons are powerful tools that can be used to both customize your gameplay experience, ranging from graphical overlays, replacement action bars, and unit/raid frames, to performance enhancements such as rotation helping spell reminders, buff/debuff tracking, popup reminders, and boss warnings. Here are some of the highly recommended and commonly used Mistweaver Monk addons, which are certainly not required to play, but can go a long way toward increasing the information available to you in combat or simply make for a more pleasant viewing experience.
Unlike Macros, managing Addons is done outside of the game, but our
How to Install and Maintain Addons Guide
will take you step-by-step through the process.
