Stat Priorities

Stat Ranking

Critical Strike is generally your best Stat, but your Secondary Stats are fairly close to each other, making Item Level a good indicator of upgrades for the most part, since Agility is rather strong. The general Stat Ranking is outlined below, but you should always be simming upgrades.

Critical Strike >  Mastery > Versatility/Haste

Stat Outline

Agility: Increases attack power and damage.

Critical Strike: Grants a chance to critically strike, dealing double damage. Its interaction with Primal Fury allows your generator Crits to give you double Combo Points, doing a lot to improve the feel and flow of your rotation. Generally your best Stat.

Mastery: Increases the damage dealt by your Bleeds and Finishers.

Haste: Increases your energy generation and Bleed tick rate.

Versatility: A simple flat bonus to damage done and reduction to damage taken.

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

Races

Feral is in a bit of a special situation in that there’s a Race whose Utility Racial provides us with a significant dps boost, that being Night Elf with Shadowmeld, making that Race far superior to alternatives.

Alliance: As discussed, Night Elf is by far the strongest option if you’re Alliance.

Horde: All Horde Races are very close, making it safe to pick based on personal preference, but Troll is very slightly ahead.

Enchants

Cloak: Enchant Cloak - Fortified Avoidance is the general choice.

Chest: Enchant Chest - Eternal Stats for Multi Target situations or Enchant Chest - Eternal Skirmish for Single Target.

Boots: Enchant Boots - Eternal Agility

Rings: You should enchant your Rings based on your current best Secondary Stat, which will more often than not be Crit, therefore you should go for Enchant Ring - Tenet of Critical Strike.

Weapon: Enchant Weapon - Celestial Guidance for Multi Target situations or Sinful Revelation for Single Target situations

Gems

Similarly to Ring Enchants, you will want to socket the Gem that gives you your current best Secondary Stat, that usually being Deadly Jewel Cluster.

Consumables

Food: Feast of Gluttonous Hedonism > Surprisingly Palatable Feast > Spinefin Souffle and Fries

Flask: Spectral Flask of Power

Potion: Potion of Spectral Agility

Stone/Oil: Shaded Weighstone or Shaded Sharpening Stone depending on your Weapon type.

Rune: Veiled Augment Rune

Armor Kit: Heavy Desolate Armor Kit

Healing Potion: Spiritual Healing Potion
