Returning Mage Stat Priority...HELP!

Good afternoon everyone!



Down to brass tax...I returned to game a  couple of weeks ago and have been struggling to find a "definitive" answer for my stat priority and I was wondering if icy-veins would finally be the place to help me!


My Stats are as follows:

Self Buffed with frost armor

Haste Rating-15,414 (45.81%)

Crit-6,223 (26.65%)

Hit-5,154 (15.16%)



I use LB during most my fights, and am basically wondering...Am I over what I should be on haste and am wasting it by not reforging somethings to mastery?  I know everyone has probably seen this post a thousand times now but still I feel like i should really find he answer since I have gotten back into raiding and feel like I can have a higher dps output.


Armory Link-


Also I just picked these gloves yesterday (warforged)-     , would using my tier gloves and getting my 4 piece also be a bigger dps boost? Since I have heard 50/50 about the mage 4 piece.


Thank you for your time-Laz

Hey there! Unfortunately there's nothing truly definitive with stat priorities as frost.


On my guide you can get a nice broad explanation for why you'd choose certain priorities over others.


For now I'm in a hurry so I'll just tell you what to do :P

Gloves ->Enchant to Superior Mastery

Back -> Gem Reckless Vermillion Onyx

Chest -> Gem 3x Quick Sun's Radiance and ignore the socket bonus (Trust me)


Reforge Gloves 442 crit -> mastery

Reforge 1st Ring 244 hit -> mastery

Trinket Reforge 632 hit -> mastery


This will bring you to 14247 haste, 9122 mastery and you'll be golden for pretty close to perfection!
