Table of Contents

General Information

On this page, we explain what the best statistics are for Feral Druids in World of Warcraft Legion 7.3.2, 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. Basics

1.1. Jagged Wounds Builds:

Due to the different scaling points that are impacted differently depending on your talents, when using a build involving Jagged Wounds Icon Jagged Wounds you will see a stronger shift toward Mastery, and your priority will generally look like this:

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

Both Mastery and Critical Strike are very close to each other, and often will shift places depending on the other stats on your gear so be aware of that.

1.2. Incarnation Builds:

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

This is largely caused by the shift away from Bleeds as the primary source of damage during your Incarnation window, shifting the strength of other stats that interact better with Shred Icon Shred above it.

These statistics have been obtained by combining common sense, in-game testing, and simulations using Simulation Craft.

2. Getting a Better Understanding

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.

Mastery, through Mastery: Razor Claws Icon Mastery: Razor Claws, increases the damage of bleed effects. This can be very useful in Cleave situations when maintaining multiple bleed effects.

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

Haste increases attack speed and Energy regeneration. Feral Druids also gain 50% additional Haste from rating on gear.

3. Advanced 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 Mastery and Critical Strike, and have a small amount of Haste to smooth out the rotation, or to help when using Brutal Slash Icon Brutal Slash builds.
