2. Getting a Better Understanding

2.1. Statistics Explanations

Intellect is your primary stat. You should look for this stat in all of your upgrades. It provides you with Spell Power, which increases the power of your heals.

Mastery increases your healing on targets with low health (through Mastery: Deep Healing Icon Mastery: Deep Healing). This is an especially powerful stat early in the progress cycle, as you are dealing with targets low on health much more often.

Haste is important as well because it lowers the cast time of your heals, which is of particular value for Healing Wave Icon Healing Wave. It also lowers your global cooldown, bringing it closer to the desired 1 second global cooldown, which benefits all of your instant cast spells. Haste also causes your HoT and DoT effects to tick faster.

Critical Strike increases your throughput and your Mana regeneration (through Resurgence Icon Resurgence).

Versatility is a flat-out damage/healing done increase and damage taken reduction.
