Stats

Prioritize gear with Crit and Specialization for extra damage and clear speed while leveling. Swiftness is good to have but Endurance, Domination, and Expertise are useless stats.

Skills

Skills can be reset at any time at no cost. Prioritize skill points towards skills that let you clear mobs of monsters as quickly as possible on a low cooldown. Here are the most important skills.
