Stat Priorities

Stat priorities

Our secondary stats are the following, please bear in mind that stats can differ per player, based on your gear, so please sim yourself.   

Crit > Haste > Vers > Mastery > Strength

If you play with Expurgation then Crit will be your best stat. But, if you don't or just want to go more AoE heavy, then Vers becomes your best stat. Haste will always be the second best, unless you play relentless inquisitor and vision major.

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