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.

Haste provides you with increased attack speed and Energy regeneration.

Mastery (Mastery: Bottled Fury Icon Mastery: Bottled Fury) gives you a chance to generate an additional stack of Tigereye Brew Icon Tigereye Brew each time you gain a stack.

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

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.
