Rotation of the Windwalker Monk

The basic rotation for the Windwalker Monk is as follows:

You can use the recommended Addon ConRo for help with your rotation, it can be found in our Addons Guide here


  • Touch of Death Icon Touch of Death should be used as often as possible throughout the fight, essentially on cooldown. Don’t place this on targets that will die within 8 seconds as it will waste this ability
  • Storm, Earth, and Fire Icon Storm, Earth, and Fire should be used as often as possible, while attempting to stack it with other periods of increased damage done. However make sure you always have at least one of its charges on cooldown
