Stat Priority for Protection Warrior in PvP | Latest Patch 7.0.3
Below are the Stat Priority and Stat Summaries for Protection Warrior at level 100. The Stat Priority ranks your stats from most effective (left) to least effective (right). The Stat Summaries provide a quick overview of how each stat impacts your character. Based on internally collected statistics on PvP players who made it in the leaderboards and meet a minimum high rating in 2v2, 3v3 or rbgs. Statistics are updated weekly.
Mastery > Versatility > Crit > Bonus Armor
Primary stats such as Stamina and Strength are not included in priority, as it is difficult to determine the value of them through analyzing data from PvP leaderboards. However, knowing the value of secondary stats is highly usable as the majority of enchants, gems, consumables and gear stat differentiations are focused on secondary stats.
With that being said, Strength is very powerful and perchance rivals or surpasses the value of Mastery in PvP.
