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.
Mastery: Moonfire increases your arcane damage on the target and Sunfire increases your nature damage on the target.
Haste: Makes it so you cast faster.
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 characterFind out how to sim
- 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 situation in mythic +. It is also the second highest simming because of the crit passive that they have.
- Night Elf is the best because of Touch of Elune and Shadowmeld being really good for Mythic+.
