General Information

On this page, we explain what the best statistics are for Feral Druids in World of Warcraft BfA 8.0.1, how the class benefits from each of them.

The statistics priority is important as it influences itemisation choices (gear, enchants, and gems).

The other pages of our Feral Druid guide can be accessed from the table of contents on the right.

1. The Basics of Stats for Feral Druids

  1. Agility;
  2. Haste;
  3. Critical Strike;
  4. Mastery;
  5. Versatility.

In Battle for Azeroth the shift over to Haste has occurred due to the addition of Bleeds to the list of effects improved by it. Aside from Haste, however, the three remaining stats tend to be very close depending on your current gear and are unlikely to make or break ideal pieces.

2. Getting a Better Understanding of Feral Druid Stats

Agility provides you with Attack Power, which increases the damage of your melee attacks and abilities.

Mastery, through Mastery: Razor Claws Icon Mastery: Razor Claws, increases the damage of your Bleed effects. This gains in value in multiple target situations where you have multiple instances of the same Bleed spread across different targets.

Haste increases attack speed, Energy regeneration and the tick rate of your Bleed DoT effects. Haste also decreases the your Global Cooldown to a minimum of 0.750 seconds. Feral Druids also gain 50% additional Haste from rating on gear.

Critical Strike increases the chance for your attacks and abilities to critically strike, dealing double damage. Your Combo Point generating abilities such as Shred Icon Shred also grant an extra Combo Point when they Critically Strike.

Versatility increases all damage and healing you do, and reduces all damage taken.

3. Advanced Feral Druid Stats

When considering these stat priorities, be aware that Feral has a good amount of synergy between each of them, so going too far into one direction can in some cases have negative effects. Try to generally aim for Haste and Critical Strike whenever possible, but play close attention to simulations of your gear that indicate trends with stats you may be neglecting.

Also remember that certain talents lean toward your Bleed effects more than others (such as Bloodtalons Icon Bloodtalons versus Moment of Clarity Icon Moment of Clarity), which can increase or decrease the power of Mastery relative to others if taken.
