Combat Buffs:
Primal Avatar: Wind Serpent – 1min CD oGCD – Shift into elemental form, increasing damage dealt by 20%, increasing your range to 35m, and reducing your cast times to 0. Grants Full Cunning. Lasts 10s.
Shifting Wind – 1min CD oGCD – Applies Shifting Wind if the Primalist receives damage that would cause their death within 10s. Restores 50% health.

Key Mechanics:
Quick Breeze(Talent) – Reduces the cast time of Air Cutter and increases damage of Lashing Wind by 120%.
Cyclicism(Talent) – Grants a buff granting 9% damage(when hitting full Fury) and 6% crit(when hitting full Cunning).
Seismic Smash – Earth ability that increases the damage of Air Cutter by 20%.
Lashing Wind – Air ability that grants 40 fury. This is the primary air ability when maxing Fury. Increases damage of Aftershock by 20%.
Air Cutter – Air ability that grants 10 fury. This is the primary air ability when maxing Cunning.
Vorpal Salvo – Earth ability from Vulcanist that generates Fury rather than Cunning.

The goal of this spec is to alternate Earth and Air Spells while maintaining Savage Twister at harmony and keeping Whirling Dervish and Earthfall on cooldown(which should refresh Cyclicism). Earth spells trigger Quick Breeze while Air spells reduce the cooldowns of the heavy hitting earth abilities.

Single Target(31 Dervish, 4 Vulcanist, 4 Typhoon):

PA:WS = Primal Avatar: Wind Serpent

ST = Savage Twister
LW = Lashing Wind
AC = Air Cutter
SS = Seismic Smash
EF = Earthfall
FB = Fury Blast
TS = Tectonic Spike

I lead off with Tectonic Spike>AC>AS>AC>Seismic Smash and enter 60s block

EDIT 1: Adjusted Vorpal Salvo Rotation(Thanks Jozy) and added Vorpal Salvo as a Separate Key Ability.
EDIT 2: Updated Talent Links and added a Key Mechanics section.
EDIT 3: Changed 4/4 Rotation to account for the increased length of Primal Avatar. Removed 6/2 Rotation as it has not been updated.
EDIT 4: Removed 6/2 spec as it is no longer a goto. Changed Rotation format.
EDIT 5: Edited rotation for a mistake. Changed Rotation format. Updated Macros with the ones I use now.
