In this section we will be covering the stat priority list for an Affliction Warlock when it comes to PvP combat in Wrath of the Lich King!
- Spell Power
- Hit Rating
- Critical Strike
For PvP, Resilience is the most important stat you can acquire and you will want to play with around 1400 resilience as a caster.
Haste is one of the most important stats as a caster because you will want to spam your abilities as fast as possible to overpower your opponent so be sure to acquire quite a high amount of haste, especially as an Affliction Warlock. The Haste Rating you will aim for is between 950 and 1050.
Spell power is one of the main stats for spell casters, it amplifies the power of our spells, increasing the overall destruction that we wreak upon our enemies. The more spell power you acquire, the more damage you will deal. You will aim to have at least 3200 with Fel Armor active and without trinket procs.
When it comes to Hit rating you will want to have 3%.
Spirit is a stat that will benefit your Fel Armor; the more Spirit you have, the larger the amount of spell power you gain from Fel Armor. However, you should not try to utilize too many items that offer spirit or gem too many sockets with spirit. 250 Spirit will be more than enough to amplify your Spell power.
Critical Strike Chance will improve our damage-over-time abilities. Due to the way Pandemic works, our DoT spells will do massive amounts of damage with the help of Critical Strike Chance. You should aim to have at least a 24% Critical Strike Chance.
Stamina is a stat that is inherently found on all of our gear pieces, increasing our health. You can opt to gem your sockets with stamina gems in order to abuse this stat, but beware of overly gemming stamina since you do not want to lose other important stats.
