Gale Winds is a talent in the Balance tree. A total of 15 Balance talent points and [Typhoon] are needed to access it, and 17 points to max it.
This talent is sometimes taken by raiding Balance druids, as it can significantly improve the damage output of [Hurricane], making it a very potent aoe ideal for damaging multiple enemies around the tank. Typhoon is a poor choice for spell use in an instance, however.
