Windwalker Monk PvE DPS Rotation - 7.1

Below is our guide for prioritizing your Windwalker Monk abilities optimally. This should help give you a basic understanding of what to do and what's most important to focus on. Keep in mind that simply following this (or any other) rotation guide will not guarantee you to be amazing at DPS. How aggressively you execute the rotation, how fast and intelligently you react in encounters, your FPS, latency, etc. play a large part in the end-result of your performance. We encourage you to really focus on those things and perfect this rotation if you're very performance-focused.


Single Target Rotation

  1. Fists Of Fury on cooldown.
  2. Whirling Dragon Punch on cooldown (if selected).
  3. Tiger Palm with <= 3 Chi and >= 80 Energy.
  4. Rising Sun Kick when available.
  5. Chi Wave on cooldown (if selected).
  6. Blackout Kick to dump additional Chi.
  7. Tiger Palm to dump excess Energy.


AoE Rotation


  1. Whirling Dragon Punch on cooldown (if selected).
  2. Fists Of Fury on cooldown.
  3. Rising Sun Kick to trigger  Whirling Dragon Punch.
  4. Rushing Jade Wind on cooldown (if selected).
  5. Chi Burst on cooldown (if selected).
  6. Spinning Crane Kick on cooldown.
  7. Tiger Palm to dump excess Energy.

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