Mark of the Crane Management
, and Tritt der aufgehenden Sonne
spells apply Mark of the Crane to the target they damage. This increases the damage of your Wirbelnder Kranichtritt
by 10% per stack. During Sturm, Erde und Feuer
your spirits will jump to targets without Mark of the Crane when you cast these aforementioned spells automatically. They will also never jump to your target either. This means you can tag 3 enemies per global spent during Sturm, Erde und Feuer
. In Battle for Azeroth the maximum amount of Mark of the Crane stacks you can have active has been capped at 5. This makes our AoE significantly weaker than Legion but also simpler to manage. You want to maintain as many Mark of the Crane stacks as there are enemies you are fighting making sure to refresh the lower duration debuffs before they fall off.
You want to prioritize Furorfäuste
in AoE but keep in mind Furorfäuste
is a frontal cone so keep an eye on your spirits positioning. You then want to use Wirbelnder Drachenschlag
immediately unless you are trying to perform the SEF Cancel Bug (mentioned later) and will not lose a cast of Wirbelnder Drachenschlag
in that encounter. From that point on you are trying to Wirbelnder Kranichtritt
every other global and use it as a filler in AoE until Furorfäuste
comes off cooldown once again. The target threshold for when you start using Wirbelnder Kranichtritt
over Tritt der aufgehenden Sonne
damage wise is 3 stacks 3 targets or 4 stacks 2 targets. This does not have in mind if there is a priority target you are trying to kill this is just for overall damage.
Here are a few examples of Windwalker AoE:
