Stat Priorities

Stat Ranking

Maraad’s Build:

Intellect > Haste > Mastery > Versatility > Critical Strike

Caster Build:

Intellect > Critical Strike to 24% > Haste > Mastery > Versatility > Critical Strike beyond 24%

Mythic+:

Intellect > Haste > Versatility > Critical Strike > Mastery

Also Avenging Crusader is unaffected by Mastery, if you talent into it mastery becomes your lowest priority stat.

Stat Outline

Critical Strike: Chance for each attack and ability to do twice as much damage or healing.

Haste: Increases attack and spell-casting speed. It also reduces the cooldown of Holy Shock and Crusader Strike.

Mastery: (Mastery: Lightbringer) Increases the healing you do based on how close your target is to you.

Versatility: Increases damage and healing done and decreases damage taken.

Races

Races are a minor thing, and all of them are viable.

Zandalari Troll: has 2 good racials for raiding. Embrace of Pa’ku - Your abilities have a chance to grant you a 4% critical strike for 12 seconds. or Embrace of Gonk - Increase movement speed by 5%.

Blood Elf: Gives you Arcane Torrent, which is an extra Holy Power generator on a 2 min cooldown, and Arcane Acuity, which increases your critical strike chance by 1%.

Tauren: Gives you an AoE Stun with War Stomp, primarily sees use in PvP. Brawn buffs your critical strike healing by 2% and synergises with Holy Shock. And it gives you Endurance which provides you with extra Stamina.

Dwarf: Stoneform Removes all harmful Poison, Disease, Curse, Magic, and Bleed effects and reduces all physical damage taken by 10% for 8 sec. this is an additional defensive cooldown and sees a lot of play in High Mythic+.

Human: Will to Survive - Removes all stun effects. And The Human Spirit, where you gain 2% more of all secondary stats from all sources.

Dark Iron Dwarf: Fireblood is like Stoneform from Dwarf, but you get primary stats instead of the physical damage reduction. 

Draenei:  Gives you Gift of the Naaru, which can be good in some situations.

But you should choose what you like best and what fits the best for the content you play since the impact is minor.
