2.1. Statistics

Strength 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 the uptime of your Enrage Icon Enrage, by increasing the critical strike chance of Bloodthirst Icon Bloodthirst.

Mastery, through Mastery: Unshackled Fury Icon Mastery: Unshackled Fury, increases the damage you do while enraged.

Haste increases your attack speed, and, thanks to Headlong Rush Icon Headlong Rush, it also reduces the cooldown of Bloodthirst Icon Bloodthirst and your global cooldown. Note that the reduction of the two is proportional, meaning that you will always have two global cooldowns between two casts of Bloodthirst.

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.
