"So to summarize, your shaman will need 17 percent hit from gear at level 80 after Patch 4.0.1, 16 percent hit if you play a draenei."This is incorrect.http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=23425636414&sid=1"If you are a Balance druid or Elemental shaman: * Your gear will have Spirit on it. It won’t have Hit on it. "https://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=24038611737&sid=1"Elemental will have a deep talent that allows Spirit (which will appear on the gear they share with Restoration shaman) to boost their Hit rating. "Base spirit at 80 right now is what, 141? That equals approximately 5.375% hit.This means that in reality, shamans will need to find 0.675%, or approximately 15, more hit.

If you actually read the tooltip of the ptr/beta version of Elemental Precision (as linked in my article), the spirit we gain hit from is 'items and effects' only, base spirit does not count towards our hit, so 1 spirit=1 hit at 80. I have tested this on the PTR and at 80 we need the hit rating I indicated for raid bosses ;) Hit 'caps' will function differently in cataclysm, but this is a 4.0.1 post ;)As for 'spirit on gear', they're referring to new mail in Cataclysm as far as I can tell. I was under the assumption that all the hit on my T10 would be spirit, but so far on the PTR and Beta the hit on existing level 80 mail is still hit, only MP5 has been converted into spirit. Thus the post you link is likely to refer new greens, blues and purples released with Cataclysm.

Based on what I am experiencing in game at the moment, you need 315 hit because of the spirit conversion.

The hit you need is based on your spirit.
