The monk passive Resolve states that "Damage you deal reduces enemy damage by 25% for 2.5 seconds."

Does Sweeping Wind activate this effect?

I've been taking Seize the Initiative over Resolve due to its 100% uptime, but since I have an 80% sweeping wind uptime, and it hits all the mobs around me, Resolve could really help out (except against very long ranged mobs).

Yes it will, since the vortex qualifies as your damage as opposed to a summons like a WD dog.
