Stat Priorities

Stat Priorities:

Single Target Stat Priority:

Haste > Critical Strike = Versatility > Mastery

Multi-Target Stat Priority:

Haste > Critical Strike = Versatility > Mastery

However, your priority can change based on your character's gear, so it's always safe to just sim your character.

Stat Outline:

Haste increases your auto attack speed and increases your focus regeneration while also reducing your global cooldown. It reduces the cooldown of Kill CommandWildfire Bomb, and Carve, and also increases the dot damage of Serpent Sting.

Crit Increases the chance for all your attacks to deal double damage.

Versatility increases the damage of all your spells and abilities and reduces incoming damage.

Mastery increases the effect of Mastery: Spirit Bond, which increases the damage of both your and your pet's focus spending abilities. Unfortunately, it does not increase the damage of Wildfire Bomb, which is our primary damage ability in AoE.

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