So, generally, it is always best to sim yourself to figure out what stats will be best for you; however as a basic guideline to follow, I’d recommend:
- Critical Strike
Crit, mastery and haste will have great value in 10.1, beating versatility by quite a bit.
Additionally, with how stats and gearing have developed over time, usually, Item level nets the most DPS increase, especially on pieces of main stat gear.
The scaling of our mastery, Giantkiller, is the reason we prioritize the stat over anything else. As an evoker, you will get close to or above 100% mastery in their second tier, meaning we are doing around double damage on high-health targets and during our cooldown Dragonrage.
Due to the talent, Spellweaver’s Dominance, our crits do 230% increased damage instead of 200%, so it’s pretty important for us to crit to make the most out of this increased damage modifier.
Haste increases the rate at which your spells are cast and channeled. This is a great stat for us to have as it helps extend our Dragonrage. During Bloodlust or if a friendly priest gives us PI during Dragonrage (bribe them if needed) we can get up to 3 full extensions. While haste feels very nice to have, it’s not worth investing heavily into it at the cost of loosing out on other stats.
Versatility is just a weaker version of our mastery. It does reduce our damage taken which is always appreciated as we have very little in the form of defensives, but generally, you don’t want to ever really be aiming for this stat unless you are really struggling to survive.
The best way to calculate stat priorities for your character is to "sim" your characterFind out how to sim
There is currently only 1 race available to evoker, and that is a Dracthyr.
Cloak - Graceful Avoidance
Chest - Waking Stats
Wrist - Devotion of Avoidance
Weapon - Sophic Devotion
Legs - Frozen Spellthread
Rings - Devotion of Mastery (As a baseline but it’s always good practice to sim yourself and see which stat would be the best for you)
Again I advise simming to see what will be the best upgrades for yourself, but I will always recommend mastery gems as a baseline.

Flask: Phial of Tepid Versatility / Phial of Elemental Chaos / Iced Phial of Corrupting Rage
Your flask of choice will be Phial of Tepid Versatility, as its increased stat budget will rival Phial of Elemental Chaos but offer some survivability on top. If you really trust your healers, then Iced Phial of Corrupting Rage will offer slightly more dps at the cost of taking additional damage. If you’re using this phial, I recommend picking alchemy as a profession and spec into Decayology.
