Explosive Potential

Mastery > Critical Strike > Intellect > Haste > Versatility

I highly recommend everyone to sim their characters to find out their exact stat values.

Stat Outline

Intellect: Raw damage increase on everything.

Haste: Increases cast and tick speed.

Mastery: Increases the damage done by your demons.

Versatility: A weak damage multiplier and damage reduction.

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

Races

Horde

Troll > Orc > Goblin > Blood Elf > Undead > Nightborne

Alliance

Human > Gnome > Dwarf > Worgen > Dark Iron Dwarf > Void Elf

Enchants

The enchants you use depend on your stat weights. Both Mastery and Haste enchants can be useful, but you should sim yourself before enchanting your gear.

Ring:

Cheap: Seal of Mastery / Seal of Haste

Expensive: Pact of Mastery / Pact of Haste

Weapon:

Masterful Navigation / Quick Navigation

Gems

Gems are dependent on your stat weights. Both Mastery and Haste gems can be useful. It is always best to sim yourself before socketing your gear. It is also recommended using one Intellect gem if your Intellect is simming better than both your Haste and Mastery.

Mastery: Masterful Tidal Amethyst

Haste: Quick Owlseye

Intellect: Kraken’s Eye of Intellect

Consumables

Potion: Battle Potion of Intellect

Food: Sanguinated Feast or Bountiful Captain's Feast

Flask: Flask of the Endless Fathoms

Optional Consumables:

Rune: Battle-Scarred Augment Rune

Vantus Runes: Vantus Rune: Battle of Dazar’alor
