1. Basics↑top

The stat priority for a Feral Druid depends on two factors. Firstly, it depends on whether you are using Lunar Inspiration Icon Lunar Inspiration or Bloodtalons Icon Bloodtalons as your tier 7 talent. Secondly, it depends on whether you are interested in single target DPS or cleaving/AoE DPS.

1.1. Generally Applicable Priority

If you do not wish to change your gear and enchantments around between fights, then you can use the following priority.

  1. Critical Strike;
  2. Mastery = Multistrike;
  3. Versatility;
  4. Haste.

As you gather more gear, you can begin to build a Mastery gear set for fights with cleaving situations.

1.2. Lunar Inspiration Priorities

1.2.1. Single Target

  1. Critical Strike;
  2. Multistrike;
  3. Versatility = Haste;
  4. Mastery.

1.2.2. Cleaving/AoE

  1. Mastery;
  2. Critical Strike = Haste;
  3. Multistrike;
  4. Versatility.

1.3. Bloodtalons Priority

1.3.1. Single Target

  1. Critical Strike;
  2. Multistrike;
  3. Versatility = Mastery;
  4. Haste.

1.3.2. Cleaving/AoE

  1. Mastery;
  2. Critical Strike;
  3. Multistrike;
  4. Versatility;
  5. Haste.

These statistics have been obtained by combining common sense, in-game testing, and simulations using Simulation Craft.

2. Getting a Better Understanding↑top

Agility is your primary statistic. You should look for it in all of your upgrades. It provides you with Attack Power, which determines the damage your abilities do.

Critical Strike increases your chance to critically hit with all spells and abilities.

Mastery, through Mastery: Razor Claws Icon Mastery: Razor Claws, increases the damage of bleed effects.

Multistrike causes your abilities to have a chance to hit/heal a second and a third time, each time dealing 30% of the initial damage/heal.

Versatility increases all your damage and healing done, and decreases all damage taken.

Haste increases attack speed and Energy regeneration.
