Windfury Weapon is a shaman ability learned at level 30 for those with the enhancement specialization. It gives a chance for hits to grant three extra attacks coupled with bonus attack power. The weapon enchantment itself lasts for one hour.

Modified by


  • It is suggested to have Windfury enchanted for mainhand and another enchant (like [Flametongue Weapon]) on the off-hand. This is because if Windfury procs on one weapon, it will not proc off the other at the same time, potentially "wasting" proc opportunities. Slower weapons are preferred.
  • Windfury procs can trigger permanent weapon enchantment effects.
  • Windfury procs that crit will also trigger [Flurry], but Windfury procs themselves do not consume Flurry. This means that after getting a high crit chance, one could have a never-ending Flurry buff, as unlikely as these situations are.
  • For PvP situations, Windfury mainhand might be paired with [Frostbrand Weapon] to slow enemies.
