DPS Rotation & Cooldowns for Windwalker Monk in PvE | Latest Patch 7.0.3

Click for article on our patch 7.0.3 update progress for these guides. Pew pew!

The following rotation guide was developed through extensive simulations and play testing with the goal of keeping the guide as simple as possible without sacrificing performance. This guide also included AoE rotations and provides details on when to use special talents and cooldowns.

Single Target Rotation

Chi Builders: Follow this priority to generate Chi when Chi <= 3.

  1. Tiger Palm as default Chi builder and to proc Combo Breaker.

Chi Finishers: Follow this priority to spend Chi.

  1. Fists of Fury on cooldown with >= 3 Chi.
  2. Blackout Kick with proc from Combo Breaker proc.
  3. Rising Sun Kick when available.
  4. Blackout Kick to dump additional Chi.

The Windwalker DPS priority involves building and spending Chi while balancing the effects of Mastery Combo Strikes. When executing the DPS priority, remember to never cast the same ability twice in a row unless it is your only option so that you can maximize the benefit from your Mastery Combo Strikes.

Build Chi by using Tiger Palm as your Energy dump and to proc Combo Breaker.

Spend Chi with Fists of Fury as often as possible. After this, consume Combo Breaker procs before your next Tiger Palm. Use Rising Sun Kick with excess Chi when Fists of Fury is unavailable. Finally, dump any additional Chi with Blackout Kick.

AoE Rotation

The Windwalker Monk AoE rotation is quite similar to the single target rotation except for swapping out Spinning Crane Kick as your lowest priority ability to dump excess Chi.

Storm Earth And Fire should be used as often as possible during AoE damage phases just before you cast Fists of Fury.


Information on how to incorporate the selected talents from this guide into your rotation is currently being re-worked for 7.0.3. Check back later!

    Effective Cooldowns

    These are effective cooldowns to try and incorporate into most all encounters.
