2.1. Stat Caps

There are currently no stat soft or hard caps worth chasing for any stat right now.

2.2. Statistics Priority

Strength 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.

Mastery (Mastery: Hand of Light Icon Mastery: Hand of Light) increases all Holy damage done by our abilities. Note that this does not affect Racial Traits and trinket effects.

Haste increases your attack speed and lowers the global cooldown of all abilities. Additionally, it reduces the cooldown of your Holy Power generators Blade of Justice Icon Blade of Justice, Judgment Icon Judgment, Hammer of Wrath Icon Hammer of Wrath, and Crusader Strike Icon Crusader Strike.

Critical Strike increases your chance to critically hit with all spells and abilities.

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