Hello, been looking at a bunch of different sites to see what the best secondary stats for ret are now, but every site has a completely different ranking...

So I figured I'd ask the talented bunch that roam these forums.

What are the actual rankings of secondary

stats for ret in WoD

If it helps, I'm mostly using Sanctified Wrath + Execution Sentence.

Appreciate any clarity you can provide!

From what I know it's Str > Haste > Mult = Mastery > Crit > Vers and that's pretty much what I'm going for except I'm going crit over mastery for off heals


keep in mind this is all subject to change at any moment

haste is horrible now, its our worst secondary stat, weird hearing myself reading and typing that now, reason being is we cannot hit our 40% soft cap, so it looks like they want us to hit a lot harder now


our best secondary stat order is multistrike > mastery > crit > versatility > haste


i have tried out the empowered seals alot lately and it seems to work out better than final verdict for now, till you get a bit more epic gear + mastery, basically you go seal of righteousness, then judgement, then go back to seal of truth (to get the 15% haste) for the next 15-18 seconds and eventually judgement when its up (for the 15% AP), and just repeat that cycle so you have both buffs.

Ok in the top 2 sims for EmpS and FV you have a priority of Mastery > Mult > Crit > Haste > Vers, currently in Highmaul EmpS is the prioritized talent with higher sims by a few hundred and I'd suggest a WA to maintain your seals, FV is much simpler in terms of upkeep so you could easily go with either and pull good numbers.

      Hi everyone,
      I, like many others, are trying to maximize DPS for their respective classes, mine in particular being ret paladin.
      In general, it seems like there are several sources of information for dps for each class.
      Icy Veins Mr Robot Raidbots (Simulation Craft) Warcraft Logs Each with its own set of criteria as to what determines high dps. And I find inconsistency when bouncing between the different sources. I want to understand what am I missing when it comes to each. I will lay out what I currently understand, and would like some feedback as to what I may not be considering in each as well as some advice as to what other options I could be exploring (resources) to further the insight into whats applicable for my current state.
      Icy Veins
      For Icy Veins, in particular, the stat weights, are mostly vaguely determined. From the ret guide:
      If I am reading this right, its Mastery >= Haste > Ver >= Crit = Str
      Mr Robot
      I use the addOn and I subscribe for the Best In Bags function. When I plug in my information in, the site recommends that I go with my 2pce t20 and balance around my legendaries with a focus on haste pieces (haste gems are emphasized).
      Stat weights as listed in MrRobot:
      MrRobot Stat Weights
      From what I am seeing, Crit is most emphasized, and the one crit gem + ring crit enchants were originally recommended by MrRobot here. Also another notable thing here is haste being way behind crit's potential.
      RaidBots (Simc)
      For RaidBots, I use the addOn, and play around with various items I hoard, and use the stat weights functions. Generally the feedback I get here are to stick with the current gem setup and with regards to stat weights, emphasize at my current setup with crit. It also says I should drop some of my high ilvl pieces (935 head, and 960 chest) for 4pce (915 head, lfr 890 chest)
      Gear simc:
      Stat Weights:
      Vers -> crit -> mastery -> haste -> str
      (versitality first?)
      Warcraft Logs
      I mostly use Warcraft Logs to check what the top dps players (ret pallys) are hitting and what setups are they running. I don't want to specifically link player armories in here, but upon some investigation, you'll find most are just stacking haste
      I understand stat weights are relative, however it seems like everyone has different priorities, one says mastery, another vers, another crit, another haste?
      Help me understand.

      Hi, Im having shoulders with 925 ilevel, mastery and verstality, but also I do have shoulders 915 ilevel, haste and avoidance.

      Whats better, lower item level but with best stats (haste/avoidance), or higher item level but with mastery and versa ?? 

      In overall, is it better to aim for "best" stats or just push item level first?

      I feel like I should be performing better as a frost mage at my specific level. If some of you don't mind taking a look at my logs and letting me know what I could do to improve, it would help me out a lot. 
      A lot of people have told me once i get bracers and shard that my dps will normalize for my ilvl. Is this true? I follow the standard for frost mage st rotation: dont eat Ice-lance procs, don't waste insta flurries, spend flurries by frostbolt>flurry>Ice-lance, etc. If I am missing something, please let me know. 
      Here are some logs to look at.
