WW Monk ilvl 520+ stats?

4 posts in this topic

So I have been trying to figure out what my stat priority should be at for my current ilvl. Im an ilvl 521 DW ww monk and I DO NOT have Rune of Re-Origination yet. So my stats are as follows:

Haste: 17.98% (7640)

Crit: 32.47% (6120)

Mastery: 2.88% (3852)

Can anyone help me on what my stat priority should be, as well as what my ratings should be at, to maximize my overall damage. Any advice will be extremely helpful. Also, for red and yellow sockets, should I keep doing straight Agility for red and straight Mastery/Crit/Haste for yellow? Or should I use Orange gems for both red and yellow sockets?? Thank you!

I don't personally know much about WW, but the WW I have in my raid says he uses some sort of spreadsheet (I don't know what it is) but I ran him through Mr. Robots default builds and its exactly the same.

Try it out and see what you think.

Until I obtained the Rune of Re-Origination, I focused on getting haste to ~6500, then stacked as much crit as I could. Mastery was a tertiary stat, but I'd take it over additional haste.

Once you get Rune of Re-Origination and your set bonus, things change quite a bit. Mastery JUST above Haste and Crit should be the ideal. For instance, I'm now running Mastery of 8276, Haste and Crit are both at 8093. My DPS when the trinket hasn't procced is noticeably down from before obtaining the trinket, but as soon as the trinket procs, the DPS more than doubles up into the 200k+ range.

With 5.4 looming and the change to mastery making the trinket very weak, I imagine a lot of WW monks will be returning the focus back on Haste and Crit; though I have yet to see some theorycrafting.

Hope this helps.

Thank you Mizumi and Krazyito for the help! I just picked up the Rune of Re-Origination, so I had to change around my stats, just like Mizumi suggested....there is a decrease in my dps overall until that trinket procs, then my dps shoots up!
