Any +hit over the 289 that shadow priests need is basicallyconsidered a "waste" because you could have itemized for some OTHER,beneficial, stat in place of that hit. Always try and be at or +/-(near) that magic number, and then start stuffing spellpower, haste,and crit until the murlocs come home.Keep in mind that the 289 hit he's referencing includes the hit weshadow priests get from our 3/3 "Shadow Focus" talent. You -could-drop those talent points, which would increase your required hitrating to be 368. (Something to consider if all this +hit gear youhave is better than the non +hit gear you have)If you're short on cash for gems, you can also trade in Stone KeeperShards for honor points which lets you buy gems, or use your emblemsof triumph, traded down to heroism, in exchange for gems (20 forprimary color, 10 for secondary).Haste doesn't really stop benefiting us with these new changes. Themore you have, the better, (obviously, though, you can't ignore otherstats -- firing off spells super fast doesn't matter much if they'renot packing any spellpower/crit punch. :)At current upper levels of gear, I've seen posted on sites likewww.shadowpriest.com that haste values in the 700 - 900 range arerather optimal.Finally, don't forget to check sites like http://be.imba.hu for yourtoon to see what things you _could_ be forgetting about, like certainenchants and such, and where you could be raiding to get better,beneficial gear. Finally, don't be afraid of other spriests. We lovespreading the facemelting love, and the more of us that can pew pewwith the best of 'em, the better!
