Stat Priorities

Stats Ranking

Haste = Versatility > Crit > Mastery

Stat Outline

As always for your stats, enchants and gems: Some of them might be better than others depending on your specific gear or talents. Make sure to always sim yourself if you want to know the best combination for your gear.

Agility: Raw damage increase.

Haste: Increases attack speed and reduces the cooldown of spells like Blade Dance, Eye Beam or Immolation Aura.

Versatility: Increases damage done and reduces damage taken.

Crit: Increases the chance of your spell doing double damage.

Mastery: Increases chaos damage taken and movement speed. Don't play with it, mastery scaling is not good.

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