1. Why? Reforging will get rid of a lot of hitrating woes, and I think it's a worthwhile mechanic.2. Ditto again.3. DPS casters don't care about mana at the moment, unless you're Arcane or similar. 4. Probably. Don't see why not, although there might be more from intellect as that gets more important.5. Plate? Bah, that's just more repair costs. Anyway, the higher armor values on plate gives you less stamina for your ilvl, and since most raid damage is magical at the moment (ignoring armor), you're more survivable than a plate wearer. Also, Aponi's been added in the latest patch.

Additional Note on Hit Rating:Although not mentioned in the panels, I do remember in one of the Q&As someone ask if there would be an adjustment to Hit Rating talents so that all casters has a similar amount of hit rating from talents. The reply was that they wanted to "do away with all Hit Rating in talents".Now this could have been a primer to the Game System's panel with the Mastery system, or it could have meant that all hit rating is now meant to come from gear. Hard to say, as the comment was made prior to the Game System's panel.

Reforging, by what I read in a GC post, will convert 2:1, so it won't be used often I think.

i think reforging is a rubbish idea, its gonna mean more people ninjaing loot that isnt for them, "oh well, i can just get rid of this agi and put on str" (says the fury warrior to the rogue as he needs on the shiny leather chest)i can see it being useful for tanking, as def rating is going etc, so the can convert some odd stats on plate it pump up his stam (which seems to be what blizzard is wanting with all this avoidance hate they're promoting atm). but hows about they just dont change so many stats? why move spirit into mp5s place? whats wrong with def rating? yeah armour pen can go though :)
