Stat Priorities

Stat Ranking

As a Balance Druid you will mainly focus on the item level as primary stat is really good in the start of the expansion.

Primary stat (intellect) is your main priority. So normally it is Item level over stats.

For Night Fae with Primodial Arcanic Pulsar, you will go for mastery/haste > Crit  vers

For Venthyr you want as much haste/mastery > crit/vers (Keep in mind you always want more mastery than haste)

Stat Outline

As a Balance Druid you will mainly focus on the item level as all stats are really good for you.

Mastery: Increases the damage of your spells. The Mastery coefficient has had a recent buff and now is a fairly strong stat overall.

Haste: Haste: Makes DoTs ticks faster and generate more Astral Power. And as Venthyr it provides more stacks and longer duration of Ravenous Frenzy.

Versatility: Great overall stat for increasing damage done and reducing damage taken; making it a nice defensive stat for progress.

Crit: Grants a chance to deal double damage on all spells.

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