5 Minute Guide

 

Racials

All races are within 1% of each other, play what you want. (psst… Pandaren)

 

Stat Summary

Critical Strike: Chance for extra effectiveness on attacks and heals.
Haste: Increases attack speed and energy per second (eps), also reduces the cooldowns of all spellbook abilities.
Mastery: Mastery: Combo Strikes – Increases damage of abilities, provided the previous ability wasn’t exactly the same.
Versatility: Increases damage and healing, and reduces damage taken.

 

Stat Priority

If you want a better understanding of stats rather than “Do this” then read Stat Weights and You: Round 2 and listen to Podcast Ep 5.

Stat priority can change based on how much of each stat you have. To find the best stat weights for your character, use SimCraft, Raidbots, or Babylonius’s Spreadsheet.
