Mastery = Haste > Crit > Versatility > Intellect
Mastery and Haste dominate by a good margin.
Intellect: is your primary stat. You should look for this stat in all your upgrades.
Crit: increases your chance to critically hit with all spells and abilities. This stat has a big element of randomness, meaning that it may not be as effective as others.
Haste: Increases your casting speed and your astral power generation (as a result you will be able to cast more spells).
Versatility: Increase all your damage and healing done while also decreasing damage taken. Versatility despite often not being the best stat DPS wise, it can have a very big value in progression encounters where damage taken reduction is very impactful.
The best way to calculate stat priorities for your character is to "sim" your characterFind out how to sim
Troll will always be the best damage race due to their racial berserking.
Night elf is overall slightly better for DPS.
None of the new races pulls ahead in case you were wondering.
This is very dependent on your character. Torrent of elements should sim the highest, but always make sure to sim every enchant to determine what is really best for you.
You want to make sure to see what sims highest for yourself to pick gems (or in the order of stats priority).
Crit: Deadly lava lazuli
Versatility: Versatile Dark Opal
Haste: Quick Sand Spinel
Mastery: Masterful Sea Currant
Intellect: Leviathan’s Eye of Intellect
Potion: Potion of Unbridled Fury
Food: You should eat food based on which stat sims highest for you (or based on the order of stats priority).
