Using 3/3 precision is believed to be inferior to 2/3 precision at the moment. Much of ilvl 333 and higher gear has large amounts of hit on it that reaching the spell hit cap with 2/3 precision is easily accomplished.Though combat has different EP values, it is worth it for an assassination rogue to reach the spell hit cap as the hit EP value is still higher than everything except agility until that point.I've heard conflicting reports on expertise. As an assassination rogue myself, should I reforge/gem towards that cap even when expertise's EP is valued so low?

EDIT: I just now found the information I was looking for concerning expertise.

The leading theorycraft on EJ currently is to only work on expertise if you are experiencing rotation issues. For instance, if you find the dodges keeping you from keeping up SnD reliably via Envenom, then Expertise would be worth stacking. In this sense, there is an undetermined lower limit you don't want to go below.However, for Assassination rogues the EP for pretty much every stat exceeds Expertise due to the small penalties for lacking it. Avoid Expertise, go Mastery and Hit.
Every combat rogue will have 3/3 Precision, and for assassination, 2/3 Precision is about one tenth of one percent away from 3/3 Precision in the absolute BIS gearsets, and that's only by one account.
