Returning to this topic about what is better, 2x 1Hand, or 1x 2Hand. Lets break it down to what to choose and when to choose it.

Rule of Thumb:
 As a Windwalker Monk, you will always want to dual-wield 2.6-speed weapons. 

With the advent of Thunderforged and Warforged weapons, BiS lists are much less valuable a resource than before, because we would be advising a list of items that not even the best players would have a chance to complete. Instead, we now give you advice for choosing your trinkets, your set bonuses, and whatever else is important for your class.
  • Haromm's Talisman Icon Haromm's Talisman and Ticking Ebon Detonator Icon Ticking Ebon Detonator are your main trinkets for Tier 16. Assurance of Consequence Icon Assurance of Consequence is also viable, but it is not as good as the two aforementioned trinkets (other classes benefit from it a lot more than Windwalker Monks). Sigil of Rampage Icon Sigil of Rampage is not worth using because its cleave damage is reduced by Storm, Earth, and Fire Icon Storm, Earth, and Fire.
  • For your weapons, Hellscream's Cleaver Icon Hellscream's Cleaver is the best choice before Heroic Warforged items. After that, any upgrade in item level is worth taking.
  • Your Tier 15 set bonuses were not that great, so you will want to replace them as soon as you get higher item level gear. Both Tier 16 set bonuses are worth having, so you should aim at wearing 4 pieces of Tier 16 and 1 off-set item (preferably a warforged item).

So guys, today i bring you a guide from Eletistjerks.com, very good guide, well put toghether.

WW] 5.4 - Siege of the Fist
All the credits go to  -> Calligraphy. " I've been playing various roles in WoW for several years, starting wayyyy way back when I first made my shaman. I just so happen to play a Windmasta Brewwalkin' monk, with an emphasis on that Windwalkin'. I chose to write this in order to have an up-to-date guide on Windwalker mechanics and changes, with an emphasis on compiling current theorycraft in an easier-to-digest manner."

Introduction


Windwalker is not a class to be confused with The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. For one thing, we have an L in Windwalker. We bring front-loaded damage, and are extremely effective in AoE and cleave fights.

We do not have initial burst, though we do have a stacking buff that allows us to do a large amount of damage over a short period of time (for more information, read the section on Tigereye Brew). In addition to that, we have a multi-dot that allows us to maintain great damage on 2-3 targets (though, with an impact on our own damage). Finally, to top all of this off - we also do fantastic sustained damage.

How to read this guide: I will give the short answer first (for those who are perhaps just switching to Windwalker and have 10 minutes before raid) and then go into more technical reasoning for those who are curious, or those who are attempting to min/max.


So you finished the first 4 bosses of Siege of Ogrimmar, and you are just of the harbour, and you are about to start the Galakras fight (cool looking mount might i add) so lets check this fight.

So beneficial talents for this fight are:

Tiger's Lust               Diffuse Magic         Rushing Jade Wind(Personal choice)
                                     
Tiger's Lust is just my personal favority movement talent not much to add.

Diffuse magic will save you well on the fire arrows it helps and on the prison add it also reduces dmg but it shines when galakras phase begins and you have all those fire orbs going around.

Rushing Jade Wind here is a what will make you top dps on this fight, i mean higher then locks at this point, but i will talk about it later.

So lets break down the fight. 

Your key spell and where you need to get good at in this fight is and clone targeting and choosing the adds with Storm, fire and earth.

What you are aiming for is the adds with the longest lifespawn or the ones that will last the longest, why, for higher uptime of you RSK dot, with RJW and combine that with fist of fury and the damage is insane.

Best targets for the clones are archers while you move around freely.
