Stat Priorities

Stat Priorities

Stats is a more individual topic so try to simulate what stat is best for your gear right now.

Single Target Stat Priority:

Agility > Critical Strike > Versatility > Haste > Mastery

AoE Stat Priority:

Agility > Critical Strike > Versatility > Haste > Mastery

Stat Outline

Mastery: Your mastery is called Mastery: Master of Beasts, increasing the damage done by all the pets and creatures that you summon. This includes your main pet, Dire Beast and more.

Haste: Increases your auto attack speed, increases focus regeneration and reduces the cooldown of Kill Command, Chimaera Shot and Barbed Shot.

Critical Strike: Increasing your chance to critically hit with all spells and abilities. BM Hunters have another passive interaction with Crit called Wild Call, if your auto-attack crits it has a 20% chance to reset the cooldown of Barbed Shot.

Versatility: Increasing all your damage and healing done, also decreases all damage taken.

In Shadowlands you want to look at the item level of each item, rather than the stats on it. A higher item level is usually better, you can surely follow the top gear sim.

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

Find out how to sim



  • Orc currently outperforms other races by a mile thanks to Command passive and Blood Fury which lines up with every usage of cooldowns.
  • Troll is also good for hunter, because of the Berserking racial.


  • Mechagnome is best for Alliance at the moment thanks to Combat Analysis.
  • Dark Iron Dwarf is another good race on the Alliance side, their Fireblood lines up well with cooldowns.
