Theorycrafting 101: Mastering Mists Mastery

Mastery was a new stat introduced in Cataclysm, giving unique bonuses to each specialization. Each rating point would contribute to a “Mastery Point”, which would in turn convert to a percentage for the bonus effect. In Mists this is getting changed, so the conversion goes directly from rating points to percentages, which makes it a little confusing when dealing with rating to percentage conversions.
In Cataclysm, it would go like this (remembering that you get a base of 8 mastery points):
8 + rating / rating conversion = points
points * mastery multiplier = percentage
Now in Mists it’s going like this:
( 8 + rating / rating conversion ) * mastery multiplier = percentage
So when we talk about Mastery having a rating conversion of 179 at level 85, or 600 at level 90, we’re talking about the amount of rating points equivalent to your mastery multiplier.
For example, Shaman have Deep Healing (Restoration, 3%), Elemental Overload (Elemental, 2%) and Enhanced Elements (Enhancement, 2.5%), each with their own mastery multipliers. This means Elemental needs 300 rating for an extra 1% for Overload, Enhancement needs 240, and Restoration only needs 200.
If you look at the Wowhead page for each mastery spell, you’ll see an “Effect #2” listed there as a dummy aura and a value. This value is that mastery multiplier multiplied by 100 (to keep it an integer value, but that’s more of a technical thing so you don’t really need to know why, just that it is).
Here are a list of all the Mastery effects, their multipliers, and the rating required for 1%
