Shadow Priest ranking question

I play a Shadow Priest.

Stat priorty is Intellect > Haste > Critical Strike > Mastery > Versatility.

So why on earth would a 187 item w/ Versatility+Mastery give a larger DPS return than a 216 item w/ Haste+Mastery?

The 187 Main Hand item would replace this [item equipped currently]:


…and likely pair with one of these [items I own currently]:


Whereas the Head item would replace this [item equipped currently]:


I use Ask Mr. Robot so that I don’t have to do the math, but this seems a little strange.

Looking for a reasonable explanation.

Thanks. :slight_smile:

If you press the “help” link next to the big “Upgrade Finder” section header, then press Create Support Post, and copy the snapshot ID here, we can look at your case in more detail and see what’s up.

Would it be too late to do this if I went against AMR’s advice and selected the 216 item already?

This is the Snapshot ID I get when I go back: 0bedf076a2b14b609e1b48c896d8993a

However, as per Step 3: Set Options I “don’t have any Great Vault rewards available at this time”, so I’m not sure the ID is of any use.
