I have a resto druid question. I am currently in a 10man raiding guild that just got 7/7 firelands. My problem is that in my 10 man group, I do not have the 5% haste buff, but I do have DI most of the time. With my current gear, I've gone up to 2005 haste while giving up some int and mastery, but then I found out that I didn't have the 5% buff and reforged out of haste.As of right now, I'm sitting at about 1600 haste, and about 14 points of mastery (I believe around 18% crit self buffed, haven't checked in a while).What haste breakpoint should I shoot for?

You need to get to 2005 haste breakpoint, and if you have to, use raw +40 haste gems. I had to do the same on my druid. I have everything reforged to haste with a couple +40 haste gems. I am sitting at 2021 comfortably (and no, there's no way for me to drop it closer to 2005!). Do what you must, or just forge for mastery (or crit, your preference) if you can't break at 2005 yet.Good luck!

2005 has little meaning for him, because as he mentioned, he doesn't get the 5% haste buff.This isn't exact, but I think with DI you need to be at around 2,300 to get the equivalent ticks that you would get at 2005 with 5% haste (and no DI). Here is a nice breakdown, but it doesn't show exactly what you are looking for. http://theincbear.com/math/resto-haste-breakpoints

Preeeeestly, I looked more at that link I posted, and if you go to the spreadsheet he links to, he actually has a calculated column if you only have DI, which is exactly what you are looking for. 2,292 is the breakpoint that would be good to get, but is kind of high. It looks like below that 1,494 is the next semi-meaningful point to get to.
