Since there has been a lot of discussion around mythic+ vs raid loot I decided to take a look at the secondary stat combos available on gear from the new raid and mythic+ dungeons in SL from the dungeon journal in beta.
I was logged on my shaman in beta so this is mail armor only and neck/back/rings
I’m not including trinkets because their power is based on their effect and are not itemized with the generic 2 secondary stat template.
There are 6 possible combos on gear of the 4 secondary stats.
Head - the raid has 1 mail head item and it’s haste/mastery. Mythic+ has 3 different
Neck - the raid has 2 neck drops, haste/mastery and crit/mastery. Mythic+ has 4 different.
Shoulders - the raid has 1 mail shoulders and its mastery/vers. Mythic+ has 3 different.
Chest - the raid has 2 mail chests and BOTH are crit/mastery. Mythic+ has 3 different.
Boots - the raid has 1 pair of mail boots and its crit/mastery. Mythic+ has 4 different.
Rings - the raid has 3 rings being haste/crit, haste/mast, and mastery/vers. Mythic+ has all 6 stat combos including 4 duplicates to stack specific stats.
The rest of the slots are similar, but the takeaway is that unless secondary stats stop mattering for specs the mythic+ loot is going to be miles better than the the raid just from secondary stat stacking since there is so little variety in raid loot.
Also, at least for mail, in all the loot there were only 3 items with stat combos available on the raid and not from a dungeon (one wrist, gloves, and legs).
