Best 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 Leviathan's Eye of Agility Icon Leviathan's Eye of Agility in one socket, and Masterful Sea Currant Icon Masterful Sea Currant (or the cheaper Masterful Tidal Amethyst Icon Masterful Tidal Amethyst) in all other sockets.


Best Enchants for Windwalker Monks

Slot Enchantment

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


Consumables for Windwalker Monks


Best Flasks and Potions for Windwalker

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


Best Food for Windwalker

You should eat the 131 Agility feasts Famine Evaluator And Snack Table Icon Famine Evaluator And Snack Table whenever possible. Otherwise, eat the 93 Mastery food, Abyssal-Fried Rissole Icon Abyssal-Fried Rissole.


Augment Runes for Windwalker

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.

Starting in patch 8.3 you can also use the re-usable Lightning-Forged Augment Rune Icon Lightning-Forged Augment Rune to increase your primary stat by an equal amount.
