Point for point, I'd say haste is still a stronger DPS stat than crit for all PvE mages. There are lots of caveats and corner situations but it's true. Haste has all the same drawbacks it always did though. Oom sooner, not much use until you have a good chunk of it, etc. Frostfire obviously benefits more (a lot more!) than old builds from crit, bumping its value, but it also has no talents to reduce casting time. As Gemski mentioned, getting off a hasted main nuke helps when you're busy playing a game of Don't Stand in the Fire.Spirit is still a +0 DPS stat. You need just enough to not oom if forced into mage armor and then zero more...ever. My *warlock* gets a nice DPS gain from spirit now and my mage still doesn't.
