Windwalker Monk Raiding Build

1-2 Target Priority (Order of DPS/Importance):
Touch of Death (cooldown)
Invoke Xuen, the White Tiger (cooldown)
Storm, Earth, and Fire (cooldown)
Firsts of Fury (Chi Spender)
Blackout Kick (Chi Spender)
Rising Sun Kick (Chi Spender)
Tiger Palm (Chi Builder)
Spinning Crane Kick (Chi Spender)

– Touch of Death does less damage than Invoke Xuen, however it also adds 10% of all damage you deal while it’s being used, which increases it’s priority. It’s good to use Invoke Xuen after Touch of Death, so 10% of this massive damage dealer is included in Touch of Death.
– Blackout Kick does more than Rising Sun Kick when you consider it only costs 1 Chi.

1-2 Target Rotation:
Tiger Palm
Tiger Palm
Fists of Fury
Tiger Palm
Blackout Kick
Tiger Palm
Blackout Kick
Tiger Palm
Blackout Kick

– To do maximum damage you need to mix up your spells to take advantage of Mastery: Combo Strikes’s ~23% damage increase.
– You’re only Tiger Palming twice in the beginning because you want to quickly use Fists of Fury as soon as possible. The sooner you use it, the sooner it’s cooldown is over, and you get to use it again.
– When Fists of Fury is on cooldown, you’re alternating between Tiger Palm and Blackout Kick, never using the same spell twice.
– Rising Sun Kick is only used when you have too much Chi. You’ll get too much Chi because Tiger Palm gives you 2 Chi, and Blackout Kick only uses 1 Chi. Keeping yourself around 3 Chi is ideal, since you’ll have enough to use Fists of Fury once it’s off cooldown.
– You’ll want to use your powerful cooldowns, ‘Invoke Xuen, the White Tiger’, Touch of Death, and ‘Storm, Earth, and Fire’, whenever they are off cooldown.
– Try to use Storm, Earth, and Fire before Fists of Fury. However, do not hold on to Fists of Fury to try and do this. Use Fists of Fury as soon as it’s off cooldown.

1-2 Target Powerful Opener:
Invoke Xuen, the White Tiger
Touch of Death
Storm, Earth, and Fire
— Now do regular rotation

3+ Target Rotation:
Tiger Palm (hit target #1)
Tiger Palm (hit target #2)
Fists of Fury
Tiger Palm (hit target #3)
Spinning Crane Kick
Tiger Palm (hit target #1)
Spinning Crane Kick
Tiger Palm (hit target #1)
Spinning Crane Kick

– Spinning Crane Kick does 10% increased damage for each unique target you hit with Tiger Palm, Blackout Kick, or Rising Sun Kick.
– Since Tiger Palm only gives you 2 Chi, and Spinning Crane Kick uses 2 Chi, you’re only going to have the ability to Tiger Palm your targets. If you use Blackout Kick or Rising Sun Kick then you won’t have enough Chi to use Spinning Crane Kick.
