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.

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


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

  • Horde: Troll
  • Alliance: Human


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 Mastery

Gloves: Enchant Gloves - Eternal Strength

Chest: Enchant Chest - Eternal Skirmish

Cloak: Enchant Cloak - Fortified Avoidance


As with enchants, gems should mostly be chosen by simming your character.
