Stat Priorities

Stat Ranking

Intellect / Item Level >>> Haste > Mastery = Crit > Versatility

ITEM LEVEL FIRST! Item level increases both intellect and stamina which are both sources of damage as long as demonic consumption is talented.

There are no really “bad” stats for demonology, it's all dependent on your current gear. Use Raidbots.com top gear function to find the best combination of gear for you!

Haste is more important with wilfreds than other legendaries but there are no realistic caps before diminishing return sets in at around 30% haste or 1050 rating.

Stat Outline

Haste increases your spell casting speed for you and your pets.

Mastery increases your demons' damage (Implosion gets increased by mastery).

Crit Increases your chance to do double damage.

Versatility increases your overall damage and healing and gives you damage reduction.

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