I'm new to the monk class and I've watched a few youtube videos of Monks using a Sweeping Winds build with Cyclones going crazy and they seem to be getting an insane amount of healing from some source.
Noxxic says in one of their build guides:
"Spam Sweeping Wind to generate Cyclones for damage and healing"
I dont see anything on the tooltip that talks about healing, can someone please explain to me where the healing factor comes in to play here?
If you have Life steal on a weapon, you gain whatever the damage % is back in health. Say you have 3% LS, then you would gain back 3% of the damage done in health. It makes no different if it's damage from the weapon or SW/cyclone. Each cyclone will return health based on the damage done.

Makes perfect sense.... thanks for the info.
This is correct.
To proc Life on Hit, a skill must have a "proc coefficient" of more than 0.
In this case, SW and the cyclones that SW:Cyclone produce both have proc C's of 0.
This is opposed to something like Fist of Thunder which has a Proc C of 1.0 on the first two hits and 0.75 on the third AoE hit.
(The way Proc C's work is -- if you have 1000 Life on Hit and attack something with a single-target attack that has a Proc C of 1.0, you will gain exactly 1000 life. If you hit something with a single target attack that has a Proc C of 0.75, you will gain exactly 750 life ... ect.)
