Stat Priorities

Stat Ranking

Single Target

Mastery > Haste > Versatility > Crit

AoE

Haste > Crit > Mastery > Versatility

Stat Outline

Mastery has insane scaling for any build that either uses Mountains Will Fall or primarily does damage through Lava Burst which is all but the one single target build that’s focusing on Lightning which basically flips the stat priorities completely.  

Haste is always good.

Crit is either fantastic or awful, rarely in between. It’s great because of Elemental Fury but then awful since it doesn’t benefit Lava Burst at all outside of Ascendance. So if a build is not reliant on Lava Burst crit is usually good.

Versatility is generally just a very average stat that you’re fine with having some of but rarely ever want to aim for.

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

Races

Tauren is the best race for Horde, for Alliance it’s Dwarf. Orc, Draenei, Troll and Goblin are however all within extremely small margins of the best, play what you prefer!

Weapon - Sophic Devotion

Chest - Waking Stats

Rings - Devotion of Mastery

Legs - Frozen Spellthread

Make sure you’re getting enchants of the highest quality, they become significantly better with each rank.

Consumables

Food - Grand Banquet of the Kalu’ak or Feisty Fish Sticks if the feast is too expensive.

Flask - Phial of Elemental Chaos is the most realistic flask for raiding as the other alternatives come with significant drawbacks and downsides. Phial of Glacial Fury can be used in mythic+.

Weapon enhancement - If Improved Flametongue Weapon is talented that should be used. Otherwise Howling Rune, sadly they are incompatible. 

Potion - Elemental Potion of Ultimate Power

Health Potion - Refreshing Healing Potion
