Stat Priority (5.4.8)
Stats are the core of your character and how you choose to balance those stats will greatly impact the effectiveness of your Mistweaver Monk. Use this guide to select the stats that are the most important for your Monk and learn how to prioritize those stats to optimize your performance.
Intellect > Spirit > Crit > Haste > Mastery
PvP Resilience and PvP PowerPatch 5.3 introduced major changes to PvP Resilience and PvP Power to reduce their effectiveness. In general, traditional secondary stats like Crit, Haste, and Mastery are now much more effective in PvP. Our stat priorities are based on the best available information, but we expect our recommendations to change as the PvP season progresses.
Intellect Increases damage and healing dealt by all spells and slightly improves critical strike chance.
Spirit Increases the rate of your Mana regeneration. Spirit is the best stat for Mana efficiency. Only stack enough Spirit to have just enough Mana for your typical PvP encounter and to maintain 6% Spell Hit.
Crit Increases the chance to land a critical heal that does additional healing. Also, provides additional stacks of Mana Tea thanks to Brewing Mana Tea.
Haste Reduces cast time, lowers the GCD, and gives extra ticks on HoTs.
Mastery Mastery Gift of The Serpent gives your heals a chance to summon a Healing Sphere near an injured ally. Allies who move through the sphere consume it and are healed for a moderate amount.
