Stat Priorities

Stat Ranking

Strength > Critical Strike > Haste to 20% > Mastery > Versatility > Haste

Stat Outline

Mastery: Applies a DoT that increases the damage targets take from you by a %. This % increases with Mastery rating.

Haste: Lowers GCD and reduces the cooldown of Mortal Strike, Skullsplitter and Cleave.

Crit: Gives a % chance to deal double the damage with an ability when used. Critical auto-attacks also generate 30% more Rage.

Versatility: Direct damage done increase and damage taken reduction.

The best way to calculate stat priorities for your character is to "sim" your character

Find out how to sim

Races

All races are very close to each other, but the absolute best races are:

  • Horde: Troll
  • Alliance: Human

Enchants

NOTE: When it comes to enchants, the ideal situation will be to sim your character regularly and go with the enchants it assigns. As a general guide however the following enchants are good.

Weapon: Enchant Weapon - Sinful Revelation

Rings: Enchant Ring - Tenet of Critical Strike

Gloves: Enchant Gloves - Eternal Strength

Chest: Enchant Chest - Eternal Skirmish

Cloak: Enchant Cloak - Fortified Avoidance

Gems

NOTE: Just like enchants, the best gems should be found by simming your character. As a general guide however, Deadly Jewel Cluster is a safe bet in most cases.

Consumables

Food: Feast of Gluttonous Hedonism (Spinefin Souffle and Fries if feast isn’t available)

Potion: Potion of Spectral Strength (Potion of Phantom Fire if you can’t get any Strength potions)

Armor Kit: Heavy Desolate Armor Kit (Desolate Armor Kit if Heavy ones are not available)

Weapon Enhancement: Shaded Sharpening Stone for Axes and Swords. Shaded Weightstone for Maces. (Both of these do exactly the same thing. They are just restricted by what weapon types they can be applied to).
