Choosing your gear carefully is important for your Windwalker Monk in PvP. We give you a stat priority to help you choose items with the right stats, followed by advice on how to choose your gear and your trinkets.

This page is part of our Windwalker Monk PvP Guide.


Stat Priority for Windwalker Monks in PvP

The stat priority for Windwalker Monk in PvP is as follows:

  1. Agility;
  2. Versatility;
  3. Mastery;
  4. Haste;
  5. Critical Strike.

Agility is the best stat in all situations. Versatility is the strongest secondary stat at all times due to increasing your damage and reducing the amount of damage you take. You should also try to focus on getting Mastery. This increases the damage you deal when you do not repeat the previous ability (Mastery: Combo Strikes Icon Mastery: Combo Strikes).


Gear Recommendations


General Guidelines

In general, Windwalker Monks want to get trinkets that line up well with Invoke Xuen, the White Tiger Icon Invoke Xuen, the White Tiger. These trinkets can have a passive or on-use effect. The stat you want to be increasing is Versatility. The reason you want to increase Versatility is because it increases your overall damage. It is also handy for increasing your healing when you need to use Vivify Icon Vivify to stay alive. Here is the best gear we recommend you use as a Windwalker Monk.

Note: It is important to wear 2 PvP trinkets. This will give you a Stamina and stat boost that will increase your survivability and damage output.


Tier Set

As noted above, acquiring both your 2-set and 4-set bonus is crucial. For Windwalker Monks, this is your tier set:
