Playstyle & Rotation

General Rotation:

Brewmaster works off a priority list rather than a rotation.

  1. keg smash does good damage and reduces cooldown on your brews.
  2. blackout kick does decent damage and adds a stack of.
  3. breath of fire to keep the debuff rolling.
  4. rushing jade wind try to keep this up as much as possible.
  5. tiger palm / spinning crane kick Use either of the two as a filler. Tiger Palm for single target and brew reduction, Spinning Crane Kick for +2 Targets, as long as you don’t need the brew reduction from Tiger Palm.
  6. touch of death and invoke niuzao the black ox to get as much damage out of them as possible throughout a fight, unless the defensive aspect of them is required for certain points in the fight.


  1. Pre pot on 2.
  2. rushing jade wind
  3. keg smash on pull running into melee range
  4. blackout kick
  5. breath of fire
  6. rushing jade wind

Multi Target:

Priority list on cleave fights swaps keg smash and blackout kick.

On AoE you can prioritize breath of fire over blackout kick.


Focus on your priority list to do damage while keeping shuffle up. Make sure to never cap purifying brew and use celestial brew on cooldown unless you know its need for something coming within a few seconds.
