The first thing, as a priest & shaman healer, that I do with Mr. Robot is:DELETE the stoopid "ENOUGH HASTE FOR 1 MORE TICK" settings asap.For example, the default for a lot of holy priest reforge suggestion spreadsheets is to hit 12% haste raid-buffed (assume shadow priest or wrath of air haste buff etc.). IMO, you don't have enough haste if you stop at just enough haste for one more tick of renew or riptide. That's just over-thinking something that doesn't need that level of calculation.Being able to cast heal, healing wave, chain heal, prayer of healing, etc. etc. faster is always good. Haste allows movement in between casts. It allows leeway & time to think about next cast and position and getting there. It allows my priest to cast mana regen CD's (HoH or shadowfiend) with a lower hit to HPS.Yes, going overboard with haste can lead to overhealing and mana problems. However, that's a judgement call and when you adjust the stat weights, you don't go haste>>all else.

Well, but it's not that these setups put haste to a value of 0 after the additional-tick-gain. Getting it is just so important that the value of haste before that "cap" is very high. As a healer playing around with these values to make a fight you have difficulties with easier is the main point here. There is rarely such thing as "This stat is always best/ worst/ second".The point of the caps is exactly to account for "you don't go haste>>all else".Don't delete them. Adjust the numbers.
