Stat Priority in Patch 10.2

General Stat Priority for Restoration Druids with our Build is:

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


  • Intellect is your primary stat, meaning that Itemlevel is superior in most cases. Higher Itemlevel will also increase your Stamina and Armor that you gain.
  • Critical Strike increases the chance for your abilities and spells to deal double damage.
  • Haste reduces your global cooldown, your time to cast spells, and reduces the cooldown of many abilities.
  • Versatility grants you a flat damage and healing increase, but also a damage decrease for half of its value.
  • Mastery increases your healing done on your target for each of your heal over time effects on them.


The further we are getting into the expansion, the effects of diminishing returns start to limit your effective gain of your secondary stats. After reaching 30% (by rating) of any given stat, you will start to receive a penalty that reduces the gain from more of the same stat over this treshold.

Stat priority can differ on every character. Make sure to simulate yourself on Raidbots get the perfect results for you.
