Stat Priority

Stats are crucial attributes that directly influence a character's power in World of Warcraft. They not only determine the character's strength but also define the overall feel and playstyle. Stat bonuses can be found on various pieces of equipment, in consumables created by the Alchemy profession, certain foods, some enchantments , and gems .

It's important to note that each stat experiences diminishing returns once its equipped bonus reaches +20%. This means that optimizing a character's performance involves more than just maximizing each stat; it's about finding a balanced distribution. Here is how Slack's Secondary and Minor stats are distributed.

Antique Bronze Bullion

Antique Bronze Bullion serves as a specialized currency in Dragonflight Season 4, enabling players to purchase specific items. Each item costs 2 bullions and can be upgraded to its maximum Mythic level.

Given that the acquisition of bullions is limited to 1 per week from defeating raid bosses and 2 from the Weekly Mythic Dungeons quest reward when available, here are the items selected by Slack.

    Embellishments

    Embellishments are unique effects that can be added to crafted items, either as predefined elements in recipes or through an optional embellishment reagent, creating embellished gear. These enhancements diversify and amplify characters' capabilities.

    Here are the embellishments equipped by Slack for the Unholy Death Knight specialization.

    Unfortunately, no embellished item data were found.

    Enchantments

    Enchantments provide minor yet valuable enhancements to various items, including Head, Back, Chest, Wrist, Waist, Legs, Rings, Feet, Main Hand, and Off Hand.

    Most enchantments are crafted via the Enchanting profession. However, Waist enchantments specifically require Blacksmithing, Legs enhancements are crafted by Leatherworkers, and Head enchantments come from the Incandescent Essence , a reward obtained through a quest in the Amirdrassil raid.

    Enchantments are usually available at the auction house, making them accessible for upgrades. Here are the specific enchantments chosen by Slack for each equipment slot.

    Gems

    Gems are crafted stones from the Jewelcrafting profession, typically offering stat bonuses to enhance your gear. These gems can be socketed into specific items such as Head, Neck, Wrist, Waist, and Rings. The presence of sockets on items is usually random upon their drop.

    Notably, Neck items can be uniquely modified to have up to three sockets by using 3 Tiered Medallion Setting . Additionally, a single socket can be added to other eligible items with a Nature's Cradle , which requires 6 Aspects' Tokens of Merit obtained from the Great Vault.

    Available through both the auction house and the crafting order system, here are the gems currently socketed by Slack.
