For Single Target
Int > Haste > Mastery = Versa > Crit
Intellect: Your main stat, it increases Spell Power, Never downgrade item level for better secondary stats.
Haste: Makes you cast more spells in general, which means more spells during Combustion and more crits for Kindling. Also makes your Flame Patch tick faster.
With Sun King’s Blessing, Haste is BY FAR your most desirable stat, which gives us a very fast Fireblast Regeneration since it’s affected by Haste. It makes our hard cast Pyroclasm procs faster and overall just makes the build extremely smooth with a high amount of Haste
Versatility: Passive damage increase while providing damage reduction, works with trinkets too.
Mastery (Mastery: Ignite): Fireball, fireblast, scorch, pyroblast, meteor and phoenix flames adds a burn onto the target for a % of the damage dealt, this of course scales with the amount of mastery you have.
Crit: Gives your spell a chance to crit. It’s not a high priority as fire mage which already has a high base crit.
The best way to calculate stat priorities for your character is to "sim" your characterFind out how to sim
The best two races for a Horde fire mage are Trolls and Orcs.
For Alliance the Mechagnome is currently the strongest choice, as it provides a passive Intellect boost.
The second choice is Dwarf as it provides a passive 2% crit damage increase.
Bracers: Enchant Bracers - Eternal Intellect
Gloves: Doesn’t affect performance, so choose whichever you prefer.
Flask: Spectral Flask of Power
