Stat Priorities

Stat Ranking

Raid Stats

Please note stats may vary entirely from player to player depending on what your current stats are. This could mean Mastery would be your worst stat. Please use the tools shown in stat discussion to get the most accurate results.

Mastery = Haste > Vers = Crit

Dungeon Stats

Mastery = Haste > Vers > Crit

Stat Outline

Mastery (Mastery: Harmony) - Each HoT we have on a target increases our healing on them by a moderate amount. You will always get value from this, especially when dealing with high single damage. It is also strong when ramping and using cooldowns during high damage.

Critical Strike - Increases the chance for each heal and damage ability to crit, this includes all HoTs.

Haste - Like other classes haste reduces your cast time and lowers your GCD. In addition it also benefits our DoTs and HoTs by giving us a partial tick at the end of their duration.

Versatility - A fairly bland stat that increases your damage / healing while also reducing damage taken.

Stat recommendations

Your stats may vary heavily as to what is best and worst, the best way to know what is strongest for you is by using one of the tools available which I will list below.

WoWAnalyzer - https://wowanalyzer.com/ an amazing site for reviewing your performances and figuring out what stats are best for you.

Races

For Alliance the best race would be Nightelf due to its ability to shadowmeld within dungeons and it has an okay passive for raid content.

As for Horde the difference between a few races is very minimal so it mainly comes down to preference.

Troll - Berserking gives you an additional cooldown to ramp with.

Zandalari Troll - Embrace of Pa’ku is the highest throughput passive racial but offers very little elsewhere.

Highmountain Tauren - With this race you gain 1% vers and a strong mobility cooldown which may come in handy on occasion, although as a druid this may go to waste.
