General Information

Welcome to our Windwalker Monk DPS guide for World of Warcraft BfA 8.0.1. Here, you will learn everything you need to know about playing a Windwalker Monk in a raid environment and in Mythic+ dungeons.

About Our Author

This guide has been written by Pandanaconda, one of the main theorycrafters of the spec. He is a co-founder of the Monk resource site Peak of Serenity, in charge of the Windwalker pages.

1. Class Overview

The Windwalker specialisation has strong priority target damage, very good AoE damage, and smooth rotations.

In terms of actual output, it is likely to be on par with most other melee specialisations. Moreover, Windwalkers generally perform very well in dungeons.

2. Patch 8.0.1 Changes for Windwalker Monk

Windwalker has had several significant changes to its talents, however the rest of the kit remained mostly the same.

3. Strengths

  • Exceptional mobility;
  • High priority-target damage;
  • Flexible cooldowns and AoE tools.

4. Weaknesses

  • As the only DPS specialisation for Monks, Windwalkers are susceptible to class balance changes.
  • Windwalker Monks do not have access to immunities or very strong defensive cooldowns.

5. Contents

To make it easy to navigate the guide, we have split it into 9 pages:

6. ChangeLog

  • 19 Jul. 2018 (this page): Changed the strengths/weaknesses to be clearer.
  • 16 Jul. 2018 (this page): Updated for the Battle for Azeroth pre-patch.
