Stat Priorities

Stat Ranking

For Spirit Shell:

Int > Mastery = Haste > Crit > Versatility

M+ and Evangelism:

Int > Haste = Crit > Versatility > Mastery

Stat Outline

Crit gives you the chance of extra effectiveness on attacks and heals

Haste increases spell casting speed and reduces the cooldown for a number of spells, for example, Power Word: Solace, Mind Blast and Ascended blast (Kyrian covenant ability).

Versatility flat increases your healing and damage done and decreases damage taken.

Mastery increases your healing and absorption on targets with atonement.

Races

Any of the racials can be useful in different types of situations. It all comes down to personal preference. You will never be behind due to your prefered race.

Some of the races that we personally think bring some extra value to your gameplay are:

  • Goblin - Goblin provides a movement CD through goblin jump which can be quite useful in certain situations
  • Troll - Trolls have Berserk, which is a haste buff. Its cooldown lines up with Boon if the Ascended if your priest is a member of the Kyrian Covenant, which is the strongest covenant for M+.
  • Blood Elf - Arcane Torrent brings an AoE purge which can be useful situationally.
  • Humans - Will to Survive - this racial removes stuns. There are some stun mechanics in both M+ and Castle Nathria where this ability comes in handy.
  • Void Elves - Void elves have Spatial Rift - a mobility racial, press it once to send out a travelling shadow of yourself and then press it again to teleport to its location.
