Stat Priorities

Stat Ranking

Agility > Versatility > Critical Strike > Mastery > Haste

Stat 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, reduces the cooldown of spells like Rising Sun Kick or Fists of Fury, and increases the chance for Dance of Chi-Ji procs to occur.

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. Note, this also affects the damage of Touch of Death.

The best way to calculate stat priorities for your character is to "sim" your character. Method Raider Jaerv has written a series of Metafy articles to help!

Races

Races are within about a 1% DPS margin which means it doesn’t really matter what race you play. With that said there are a few races that have utility benefits that may be useful in the content you are doing such as Dwarf’s Stone Form, Blood Elf’s Arcane Torrent, or Orc’s Hardiness.
