Last updated on Nov 06, 2023 at 17:50 by Mysticall 16 comments

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.

Windwalker Monk Tier Set

As noted above, acquiring both your 2-set and 4-set bonus is crucial. It is also important to note that ALL tier sets are nerfed by 50% in PvP. Although this nerf is significant, tier sets are still important to acquire to maximize your chances of winning. For Windwalker Monks, this is your tier set:

  • Monk Windwalker 10.2 Class Set 2pc Icon Monk Windwalker 10.2 Class Set 2pc — Melee attacks have a chance to make your next Spinning Crane Kick Icon Spinning Crane Kick free. This will also grant Blackout Reinforcement Icon Blackout Reinforcement, increasing the damage of your next Blackout Kick Icon Blackout Kick by 100%. This will increase both your sustained and spread damage.
  • Monk Windwalker 10.2 Class Set 4pc Icon Monk Windwalker 10.2 Class Set 4pcBlackout Reinforcement Icon Blackout Reinforcement empowered Blackout Kick Icon Blackout Kicks reduce the cooldown of Fists of Fury Icon Fists of Fury, Rising Sun Kick Icon Rising Sun Kick, Strike of the Windlord Icon Strike of the Windlord, and Whirling Dragon Punch Icon Whirling Dragon Punch by 1 second. This will help with getting your burst damage more often.

Windwalker Monk Embelishments

Embelishments are bonuses that can be put on crafted gear. These effects can have a drastic impact on the game. You are only allowed to have 2 Embellishments equipped at the same time. Here are the recommended Embellishments for Windwalker Monk:

  • Infurious Footwraps of Indemnity Icon Infurious Footwraps of Indemnity. These Embellishment Boots give you a primary stat increase when you successfully interrupt, crowd control, or dispel an enemy.
  • Infurious Spirit's Hood Icon Infurious Spirit's Hood. This Embellished item causes you to deal 1% more damage to enemy players who attack you for 5 seconds.
