Stat Priority

Stats change in value depending on what content you are doing as well as what other stats you currently have. I don’t have a stat weight for you, or a pawn string you can use. Anyone who does is misleading you.

If you are a beginner and don’t intend on min-maxing: Pick the highest ilvl pieces, gem and enchant whichever your lowest secondary is. Take a gem socket to be worth 5-10 ilvl depending on which piece it’s on.

If you are a Mythic raider looking to get any possible advantage: Run your stats through Torty’s spreadsheet located here.


Some notes on stats:

  • Haste offers a big HPS increase, however is poor when it comes to heals per mana (which can be a more important stat).
  • Crit is particularly strong if you have our BiS cloak, the Drape of Shame. All HoT ticks can crit.
  • Each secondary stat goes up in value the more you have of the other secondaries, which lends itself well to a balance of stats.
  • All of our secondaries are great. Enjoy it!


Stats in Mythic+

Mastery and Haste are stronger in Mythic+ where you tend to have larger HoT stacks because of the smaller party size and frequent opportunities to drink. However Mastery offers no increase to our DPS and as you start pushing higher M+ runs (or three chests) healer DPS becomes more and more important. If you think of it as your most powerful healing stat, and least powerful DPS stat, you can make a decision from there based on your playstyle.



Flask: Flask of the Whispered Pact

Gems: One Saber’s Eye of Intellect. Deadly Eye of Prophecy can be a wise general choice for your other slots, especially if you are wearing a Drape of Shame however, if you’re min-maxing, a spreadsheet will tell you which gems will give you the most benefit. Gems and enchants are a useful way to boost stats you’re missing on your gear.

Potions: You will mostly be using Mana Potion and Leytorrent Potion, however pre-potting with a Potion of Prolonged Power or Deadly Grace is worthwhile for bosses that are heavy DPS checked such as Ursoc, and Guarm.
