I believe he put haste over crit because haste is generally morereliable than crit. Haste will *always* reduce your casting time (to a point*, but crit will only increase your dps depending on how lucky you are with the RNG. Like you said, your dps can flucuate +/- on any given night depending on how lucky you are. That being said, I do absolutely agree that, as a Fire-HeavyFrostfire mage, I will always stack crit over haste, because 1) it's a crit based spec, 2) it just seems a lot cheaper (likeChristian said above, you have to stack quite a bit of haste to see huge differences), and 3) like you said, you'll never have to choose between gear with crit or spellpower; just between no crit or more spellpower. From what I've seen though, they usually replace crit not with more spellpower, but with haste and/or hit and/or spirit, so you should rarely have to weigh them against each other.
