If I am way over my hit cap just on my gear, would it make sense to reforge the excess hit to mastery?

You'll definitely want to reforge that hit into something. Mastery is good depending on your spec, I really like the SV mastery bonus. but honestly, it's between mastery and crit. if you already have a lot of crit, go mastery.

definitely reforge all that hit.also, you can reforge the static part of hit/crit/haste on trinkets (so you can take a hit trinket and reforge it into mastery)

I managed to reforge about 3.5% excess hit into mastery. On the pieces that I didn't use to reforge hit (or didn't have hit on them), I reforged all the crit to mastery, as well (I was sitting at just under 60% crit prior to the patch, so I had plenty to spare), and kept the haste as it was. In doing so, I gained something like 1500 DPS on the target dummy no matter what spec I was. Yes, mastery is that good of a stat for us. I'm semi-interested in seeing what would happen if I reforged the haste instead of the crit, but I'm not raiding right now, so it's not particularly important.On a somewhat related note, marks has gone from my least favorite to my favorite spec overnight. I stuck with survival all the way through the marksmanship ascendancy because the latter always felt clunky and un-fun to me. Now, however, marks feels smooth and natural, while I just can't get the hang of the new survival (BM feels about the same). I'll reevaluate things when Cobra Shot becomes available, but for now, I'm marks for the first time ever.
