Stat Priorities

Stat Ranking

Agility > Versatility > Critical Strike > Mastery > Haste

Stat priority can change for your character depending on your current gear and stats. Make sure to sim using Top Gear to get an accurate BiS for your character.

Stats Outline

As always for your stats, enchants and gems: Some of them might be better than others depending on your gear or talents. Make sure to always sim yourself if you want to know the best combination for your gear.

Agility: Provides Attack Power which increases the damage you do.

Haste: Increases attack speed and Energy regeneration, and reduces the cooldown of spells like Rising Sun Kick or Fists of Fury.

Versatility: Increases damage done and reduces damage taken.

Crit: Increases the chance of your spell doing double damage. Does not affect the damage from Touch of Death and Touch of Karma.

Mastery: Increases damage of abilities that are not a repeat of the previous cast.

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

Races

Horde:

Orc > Blood Elf > Tauren

Alliance:

Mechagnome > Dark Iron Dwarf > Dwarf

The differences between the races are minor (roughly 1.4%), so you should choose what you like the most aesthetically.

Enchants

Weapons: 1x Celestial Guidance at all times, if you are dual-wielding, then for ST the other weapon should have Enchant Weapon - Sinful Revelation, and for AoE, it should have Enchant Weapon - Lightless Force. Never double up on enchants.

Cloak: Enchant Cloak - Fortified Leech or Enchant Cloak - Fortified Avoidance

Chest: Eternal Skirmish

Boots: Eternal Agility

Rings: Tenet of Critical Strike or Tenet of Versatility

Gems

Make sure to use Raidbot’s Top Gear Tool for the best results for your character. It will generally follow the stat priority above.

Crit Gem: Deadly Jewel Cluster

Versatility Gem: Versatile Jewel Cluster

Consumables

Food: Feast of Gluttonous Hedonism / Empty Kettle of Stone Soup. Steak a la Mode or Spinefin Souffle and Fries if the feast is not available.

Flask: Spectral Flask of Power

Potion: Potion of Spectral Agility

Rune: Veiled Augment Rune /  Eternal Augment Rune

Weapon Enhancement: Shaded Sharpening Stone / Shaded Weightstone (use 2 if dual wielding)

Armor Kit: Heavy Desolate Armor Kit (Note this provides a minor DPS increase as increasing stamina increases the damage of Touch of Death and Touch of Karma)
