Windwalker PVP

1. Gearing and Stat Priority 

- First things first, the windwalker monk must have the 4-piece set bonus. This bonus grants us a 2% damage reduction per Tigereye brew consumed. Thus, having consumed 10 stacks you will be given a 20% damage reduction for a whole 20 seconds! 

- Your main stats are Haste and Versatility. 
+ Enchant your neck with Gift of Versatility: 75 Versatility 
+ Enchant your back with Gift of Versatility: 100 Versatility + 10% Speed
+ Enchant both rings with Gift of Versatility: 50 Versatility.
+ Enchant your weapons with Mark of Warsong: dimishing haste proc.

- Concerning gear, only your Chest should not be a 'bonus set' piece. Instead, grab the haste + versatility one! The rest of the main pieces, besides the shoulders, already contain the stat haste! 

Trinkets
+ If you are hooman, you have the passive trinket. Thus go for Versatility + Agility trinkets. 
+ If you are not hooman, you will go for 2x Versatility trinkets

Weapons: 
+ The best weapon to use is the 2-handed Staff. There is always discussion about what weapons are better to use, but the staff is without a doubt the best and i will explain why. The staff has the fastest attack speed (2.00), which synchronizes well with the monks passive 'Way of the Monk'. This passive talent allows you to attack 55% faster with 2 handed weapons. As a result, your Tiger Strikes buff (35% multistike for 8 seconds) has a longer uptime.
2. Glyphs

These are the best glyphs, but they can change depending on who you play against. 
+ Paralysis: If you want your paralysis to have it's full effect, then this glyph is mandatory (especially for arena).
+ Touch of Karma: can be vital for survivability. If you get kited and you're dying, then you need a ranged Karma to save your life.
+ Touch of Death: This provides you with a free execute if a target is at 10% or lower. This is most valuable in arena as it gives a guaranteed kill.
+ Flying Fists: This glyph is amazing as it gives your fist of fury a 10 yard range. Easier functionality and you can more easily catch multiple targets.

Note: 
Swapping out Touch of Karma: If you're facing a melee / cleave comp you can swap out Touch of Karma as there is a good chance you can use the ability on a target when necessary.
Swapping out Touch of Death: If you have very little uptime on targets then swap out Touch of Death. Then you have to be aware that your Touch of Death costs 3 Chi! 

3. Talents

Tiger's Lust: Allows for much better mobility, and frees one from roots and snares. This ability can also be given to team members.

Chi Burst: This does a respectable amount of damage and healing (Roughly 40-50k) with your 10 stacks, and can be paired with a Rising Sun Kick or a Chi-Torpedo. (Chi-Torpedo is when you jump and torpedo, which also does around 40k damage). 

Chi Brew: This is a great talent, and it pairs well with your mastery, often giving you extra tigereye brews. It also gives you 2 chi, so at the start of a game you can use Chi- Brew 2x, followed by a Chi Explosion and you'll almost be at 10 stacks. Sometimes even 11. Ready to burst before contact has been made. 

Leg Sweep: Stuns enemies within 5 yards for 5 seconds. Mandatory talent. Can be used following a Fist of Fury stun. 

Healing Elixir / Dampen Harm / Diffuse Magic:
+ Healing Elixir is a nice heal (about 50k) that is used when you drop below 35% health. Can also be used on demand every 18seconds when a brew or tea is used. 
+ Dampen Harm: This is a great talent vs classes which deal high chunks of damage (Destruction / Demonology Warlocks, Rogues with DfA, Balance Boomkins). It can be used while stunned and will save you lots of health when used properly! 
+ Diffuse Magic: Is very useful versus caster classes (Mages, Affliction Warlocks, Shadow Priests, Boomkins). Not only does it reduce magic damage taken by 90% for 6 seconds, it returns those magic debuffs (such as dots) to the original target 

Chi Torpedo: Best talent in this tree. It is good for bursting during stacks, for some extra healing and for general survivability. Using this correctly requires you to use Torpedo a split second after jumping. Then you torpedo in the air, without displacing yourself. 

Chi Explosion: Best talent due to its tigereye brew generating property. Using 3+ stacks of Chi Explosion will generate additional stacks, which allows you burst more frequently. Additionally, it is a ranged magical attack which allows you to put out some damage while being kited. 
+ Hurricane Strike is more a battleground talent and is not viable for arena. It does a great amount of damage with stacks, but this damage is greatly reduced if hitting more than one target. 
+ Serenity: Can provide a good amount of burst but simply doesnt match the strtenght of chi explosion.
