- 15CelerityTiger's LustMomentum
Tigers Lust offers the ability to remove movement impairing effects, which is essential in PvP.
Momentum offers a similar overall boost to mobility as Celerity, but is still less useful than the crowd control break provided by Tigers Lust.
- 30Chi WaveZen SphereChi Burst
Chi Wave offers a moderate amount of instant-cast damage and healing, which makes it easy to work into your PvP rotation, and helps you deal with ranged targets.
Zen Sphere offers some damage and healing, but is overall more difficult to use than Chi Wave.
Chi Burst offers a reasonable amount of damage, but the cast time makes it a less appealing option than Chi Wave, which is easier to work into your PvP rotation.
- 45Power StrikesAscensionChi Brew
Power Strikes increases your Chi generation, but does so in a manner that is somewhat chaotic and difficult to utilize in PvP encounters. Further, Power Strikes does not offer the burst damage potential of Chi Brew.
Ascension offers a notable amount of resource regen, but does not improve burst damage in the same way as Chi Brew. Also, in PvP you tend to sit at the resource cap for periods of time, which reduces the value of Ascension.
Chi Brew offers the potential to apply burst damage or healing, and to quickly stack up your Tea. These effects are almost always useful.
- 60Ring of PeaceCharging Ox WaveLeg Sweep
Ring of Peace is best used in situations where you need to be able to control a group of targets. But Leg Sweep tends to be more useful as a general purpose PvP talent.
Charging Ox Wave allows you to close gaps and stun targets, but is generally less useful than the other talents in this tier.
Leg Sweep is best used when facing one or two enemies, as it can help you quickly gain the upper hand. Leg Sweep is especially strong. It is well suited for buying you time to finish off a target.
- 75Healing ElixirsDampen HarmDiffuse Magic
Healing Elixirs offers a strong heal that can be used passively or triggered as needed. This talent is quite flexible and useful in almost every situation. However, Diffuse Magic is a viable alternative in situations where you face a high amount of burst magic damage.
Dampen Harm is not very helpful in PvP. It is difficult to use and is only the most effective against really high damage attacks. The other talents in this tier are easier to use and generally more helpful.
Diffuse Magic is a strong choice against players or teams with high burst magic damage or DoTs.
- 90Rushing Jade WindInvoke Xuen, the White TigerChi Torpedo
Chi Torpedo provides some additional mobility with burst damage and healing potential, but is generally less useful than the other talents in this tier.
- 100Hurricane StrikeChi ExplosionSerenity
Hurricane Strike is a DPS-enhancing talent and was not selected as a higher DPS talent was found in this tier. Use the DPS Talent Calculator to see which tiers affect DPS and how each talent performs.
Serenity allows you to instantly refill any Chi that are consumed for a short duration.
