If haste is so terrible for us right now, why is it featured so highly on our Tier set?And why do Flurry, Unleash Elements (Windfury), Windfury Totem, and Bloodlust all feature attack speed increases?I understand the numbers, but not the reason behind them. Clearly, Blizzard wants us to value attack speed, right? (Note: I'm not opening the fast/slow weapon debate. We are slow but agile, I get that.)

First of all, seeing speed-related buffs in our talents in no way means haste is the best stat. It may be an integral part of our dps that our attacks be sped up, but that doesn't mean it's the only/best thing that increases our dps.Secondly, even though haste may be good, mastery is better. Little of our damage is actually increased by haste, but over half of it is buffed by mastery, because it is elemental damage.
