Stat Priorities

Stat Ranking

  1. Versatility
  2. Critical Strike
  3. Mastery
  4. Haste

Stats Outline

Versatility gives you a flat damage increase and damage taken decrease. It also scales with your Touch of Karma and your Touch of Death.

Critical strike increases the chance of your abilities to deal double damage.

Mastery causes your next ability to do more damage if it is not a repeat of your previous ability.

Haste increases your energy regeneration and reduces the cooldown of Fists of Fury and Rising Sun Kick as well.

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