Stat Priorities

Stat Priorities

Please bear in mind that stats can differ per player based on your stats and gear, make sure to sim yourself.

Single Target Stat Priority:

Critical Strike > Haste > Mastery > Versatility

Multi-Target Stat Priority:

Mastery > Haste > Critical Strike > Versatility

Stat Outline

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

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

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