About Our Reviewer

This guide has been reviewed and approved by Babylonius, a prominent Windwalker Monks theorycrafter who maintains Walking the Wind. You can follow him on Twitter: @BabyloniusMonk.

1. Basics

The stat priority for Windwalker Monks is:

  1. Agility;
  2. Versatility (until about 10%);
  3. Haste = Critical Strike = Mastery.

2. Getting a Better Understanding

Agility is your primary statistic. You should look for it in all of your upgrades. It provides you with Attack Power, which determines the damage your abilities do.

Versatility increases all your damage and healing done, and decreases all damage taken.

Critical Strike increases your chance to critically hit with all spells and abilities.

Haste provides you with increased attack speed and Energy regeneration, and reduces the cooldown of your Fists of Fury Icon Fists of Fury and Rising Sun Kick Icon Rising Sun Kick.

Mastery (Mastery: Combo Strikes Icon Mastery: Combo Strikes) causes your abilities to deal increased damage (the amount depends on your amount of Mastery) when they are not used two or more times in a row. For example, using Blackout Kick Icon Blackout Kick and Tiger Palm Icon Tiger Palm gives both of them the damage bonus, but if you use Tiger Palm twice in a row, the second Tiger Palm will no longer benefit from the increase.

3. ChangeLog
