Do we know which secondary stats we need yet?

Why versatility?


Versatility affects all your damage, mastery affects half your damage.

Versatility needs a lot more points for 1% while Mastery needs way less.

I bet you'll do a lot of damage ;)

EDIT, my current Pawn (only item with mastery is my neck) ( Pawn: v1: "Húmúz-Havoc": Class=Demonhunter, Spec=Havoc, Agility=1.57, CritRating=1.08, HasteRating=1.08, MasteryRating=0.85, Versatility=1.13 )

You're both right.

Versatility has a higher score because of its defensive / healing values as well. However, in reality our self-healing is pretty damn weak and unreliable, Depending on your playstyle and the content you are playing mastery might actually be worth it. For example a PvP build which relies on the most damage output coming in burst from RfA, Eye Beam, Fel Barrage, and spamming Chaos Strike.

Right now we can barely choose our stats though since we need whatever gear we can take (agility is still #1), and reforging is gone.
I play chaos oriented build and it seems Mastery + versality is reaaly nice, with haste being there wherever vers is not.

Feels right, thou i just hit 120.
You can say a general for DH is something like Haste=versatility>crit>mastery, but it depends on your items, your talents and now also your azerite traits.

My Scale is currently:
Weapon DPS 7.87
Off Hand Weapon DPS 1.84
Agility 1.73
Versatility 1.33
Critical Strike 1.26
Mastery 1.24
Haste 1.16

But the best you can do, if you want that edge is Simulate yourself, using simcraft, and get your own stat weights. Simply get the simcraft addon, export your character string, import it to raidbots simulator, and you'll have your result within minutes.
Sim yourself.....
