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

Find out how to sim



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


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


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.


Cheap: Seal of Mastery / Seal of Haste

Expensive: Pact of Mastery / Pact of Haste


Masterful Navigation / Quick Navigation


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


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
