Class Overview

Windwalker is the DPS specialisation of Monks, the most recently-added class in World of Warcaft.

Windwalker Monks provide competitive melee DPS. With weapons of the same item level, dual-wielding provides more DPS than using a Two-Handed weapon, but a higher item level Two-Handed weapon will push this playstyle ahead.

Windwalker Monks are extremely mobile, and they also have excellent personal survival cooldowns that allow them to mitigate a lot of damage in a raiding environment.
