Stat Priorities

Stat Ranking

Mastery > Haste > Crit > Versatility

This ranking is the general idea, but you should always sim an item to see if its an upgrade or not.

Stat Outline

Mastery: Increases your Nature and Arcane damage to the target, increased further when Sunfire and Moonfire are applied to a target, respectively.

Haste: Makes it so you cast faster, reduces the global cooldown on most abilities, and increases the rate at which your damage over time effects tick.

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. Crit Synergizes well with Astral Smolder.

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



  • Troll is the highest simming race because of Berserking aligning with Celestial Alignment/Incarnation.
  • Highmountain Tauren is also pretty good due to Bull Rush and the 1% versatility passive. Bull Rush adds another stop that you can use in mythic+, which makes it pretty good depending on the team composition you are running. It also gives you a bit of extra mobility.
  • Tauren sims second highest and it gives you War Stomp, which can be very useful in certain situations in mythic +. It is also the second highest simming because of the crit passive that they have.



Cloak: Enchant Cloak - Graceful Avoidance

Chest: Enchant Chest - Waking Stats

Bracers: Enchant Bracer - Devotion of Avoidance

Legs: Frozen Spellthread

Boots: Enchant Boots - Plainsrunner’s Breeze

Rings: Enchant Ring - Devotion of Mastery - but sim yourself to determine what ring enchant you should be using!

Weapon: Enchant Weapon: Wafting Devotion or Enchant Weapon: Sophic Devotion


Usually for the main stat gem you want to use the Skillful Illimited Diamond.

Gem: Keen Neltharite - but sim yourself to determine what other gems you should be using!


Food: Grand Banquet of the Kalu’ak or Sizzling Seafood Medley or Thousandbone Tongueslicer depending on what secondary stat you need.

Potion: Elemental Potion of Ultimate Power

Rune: Hissing Rune - but sim yourself to determine if Howling Rune or Buzzing Rune could be better.

Phial (Flask): Iced Phial of Corrupting Rage is the best phial dps wise, but causes you to take additional damage, and its uptime may be lower on high damage fights. You might want to consider Phial of Tepid Versatility for some bosses in raid in which your corrupting rage uptime isn’t high or for high Mythic+ content to help survive damage intake.

Health Potion: Dreamwalker's Healing Potion
