I think this is part of the issue that makes it very difficult for Blizzard to solve for. You'd think that re-forging really is just something for high end raiders to worry about. However, there's a whole slew of people whose approach to the game is based on simply copying what the high-end players are doing. In this case, it's min-maxing via reforging. Although the real impact of these changes is nominal and really not important if you're not working on the hardest stuff in the game, there are people who will do it anyway. If Ask Mr. Robot says to reforge every piece of gear to gain just a few more points of haste or mastery, it's this group who will do it.How can Blizzard solve for something when the simplest answer is for the player not to use it?Personally, I am not doing anything more involved than Raid Finder right now. I still spend time at the reforger and I might lament a new piece of gear that causes a substantial change to my hit rating, but I have long since resigned myself to the fact that many of the potential changes I could make are simply not meaningful enough to warrent doing. I'll reforge to hit cap and I will also reforge to get rid of my worst stat (as a Fire mage it's Mastery), but I am not willing to reforge more valuable stats in effort to squeeze out a few more points of ratintg.
