Stat Priorities

Stat Ranking

Raid:

Intellect > Critical Strike > Versatility > Mastery > Haste

Mythic+:

Intellect > Versatility = Crit = Haste > Mastery

We want a significant amount of haste for dungeons to make sure that our playstyle doesn't feel clunky. I personally run 20% haste this season. Then versatility is our best all-around stat that works great in every situation. Crit is very strong for our aoe dmg but falls behind on pure ST as it doesn't affect Lava Burst. Avoid mastery as much as possible for keys.

Stat Outline

Critical Strike: Critical Strikes give you mana back due to the Resurgence passive and also increased output when you land a crit.

Versatility: Increases your healing and damage by an amount and reduces the damage you take by half of that.

Mastery: Increases your healing done to targets based on their current hp, where the lower their health the more healing you do.

Haste: Unfortunately we don’t have many abilities that scale well with haste, which leaves this stat very lacklustre for now.

Races

Pandaren - Gives the most output due to the double effect of the food buff.

Goblin - The Goblin racial ability, Rocket jump, can be excellent in certain fights since shamans lacks mobility in general.

Enchants

Weapon - Celestial Guidance

Chest - Enchant Chest - Eternal Stats

Bracers - Eternal Intellect

Cloak - Fortified Leech

Rings - Tenet of Critical Strike

Gems

Crit Gem: Deadly Jewel Cluster

Consumables

Flask: Spectral Flask of Power

Food: If no feast available use Spinefin Souffle and Fries

Mana Potion: Potion of Sacrifical Anima provides more mana back than Potion of Spiritual Clarity if used on 4 Chain Heals. Highly situational, most of the time just Potion of Spiritual Clarity.

Intellect PotionPotion of Spectral Intellect provides the most dmg increase in dungeons. Pair it up with your Vesper Totem to do big burst damage.
