Stat Priorities

Stat Rankings

Ilvl > All due to Guardian druids having significant gains from Agility, Armor, and Stamina increases.

When comparing items of similar ilvl, you can use the following stat priority for defense:

Vers = Haste > Mastery > Crit

OR if you are looking to maximize damage you can use:

Haste > Crit = Mastery > Vers

As always though, if you are looking for the exact offensive value of these stats you should sim yourself.

Stat Outline

Agility affects all attack power scaling abilities, notably ironfur’s armor bonus scales off your agility.

Haste reduces your GCD and the CD of Mangle, Thrash, and Frenzied Regen.

Crit provides dodge.

Mastery increases your maximum health, healing received, and attack power.

Versatility increases the gains from a lot of your self-healing such as After the Wildfire, Ursoc’s Fury, and Elune’s Favored, on top of granting additional damage and damage reduction.


No race has a massive advantage over the others; that being said, the strongest would likely be Highmountain Tauren (Horde) or Night Elf (Alliance)
