1. Gems for Windwalker Monks

Keep in mind that for stat gems and enchants, you should always follow your stat weights. However, these are likely to be the correct choice for you.

You should use Kraken's Eye of Agility Icon Kraken's Eye of Agility in one socket, and Versatile Royal Quartz Icon Versatile Royal Quartz (or the cheaper Versatile Kyanite Icon Versatile Kyanite) in all other sockets.

2. Enchants for Windwalker Monks

Slot Enchantment

Note that for the weapon enchants, you do not want two of the same enchant.

3. Consumables for Windwalker Monks

Flask of the Currents Icon Flask of the Currents should be used for raids along with Battle Potion of Agility Icon Battle Potion of Agility as your potion of choice.

You should eat from the Bountiful Captain's Feast Icon Bountiful Captain's Feast (or the cheaper Galley Banquet Icon Galley Banquet) when possible, and otherwise Versatility food (Mon'Dazi Icon Mon'Dazi or the cheaper Spiced Snapper Icon Spiced Snapper).

If you can afford it, you should use Battle-Scarred Augment Rune Icon Battle-Scarred Augment Runes to increase your primary stat. Since there is a finite amount of these runes available, you should make sure to use them wisely and to stock up on them for when you need them.
