1. Basics

The stat priority for a Subtlety Rogue is:

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

This stat priority assumes that all stats are found in equal measure. Because of the lack of Versatility on gear, people with very little of it will generally find it to be their most valued stat (but its value quickly dropped as you get more of it).

1.1. Stat Weights

These values are calculated for a single target.

  1. Agility: 1.00
  2. Mastery: 0.95
  3. Versatility: 0.94
  4. Critical Strike: 0.85
  5. Haste: 0.52

2. Tier 21 4-Piece Bonus

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

2.1. Stat Weights

These values are calculated for a single target.

  1. Critical Strike: 1.54
  2. Versatility: 1.36
  3. Mastery: 1.08
  4. Agility: 1.00
  5. Haste: 0.95

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

You can also use Shadowcraft, an online tool dedicated to Rogues, where you can optimise your gear, gems, reforging options, enchants, talents, glyphs, and rotation.

3. 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.

Mastery increases the damage of your finishers through Mastery: Executioner Icon Mastery: Executioner.

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

Versatility is a flat-out damage done increase and damage taken reduction.

Haste provides you with increased attack speed and Energy regeneration. This statistic helps you maintain your rotation.
