I'm one of the several who thinks hit (and spirit) trinkets ought to be valued not at hit's full pseudo-intellect value, but at the level of the next-highest secondary stat. Consider: if a toon with two non-hit trinkets is adding a hit trinket, they'll wind up overcap in terms of hit rating (which presumes that they were hitcapped before, which is a perfectly safe presumption when making BiS lists...). Across the rest of the toon's gear, there will be more hit to reforge to mastery/crit/haste, and places where reforges to hit will need to be undone.Likewise, if you are replacing a hit-based trinket with a non-hit trinket, this will mandate that other gear will need to be reforged into more hit, and you'll wind up staying the same in hit rating with and without that trinket, but what you'll have lost in the end is non-hit secondary stats.

I wonder about this too. It makes sense to me that having one item with a huge wad of Hit/Spirit is more valuable than its calculated value would suggest. Alone, yeah it's only worth so much, but given that a big chunk of Hit/Spirit in one spot can free up a number of other pieces to be reforged into other stats, it stands to reason that evaluating a trinket's value is better done with that in mind.That said, the hit has to come from somewhere, and if you can swipe it from mastery (as things stand now) you can equip "better" trinkets because you don't need the Hit/Spirit any more.
