I'd like to point out on the legs you have that you can gain 40 mastery at the cost of 10 intellect by gemming for the +30 int slot bonus with two Artful Ember Topazes (+20int/+20 mastery). The relative stat value of int to mastery is about 2:1 (it's actually a little bit better, about 100:55). Likewise, gemming the Band of reconstruction with an Artful Ember Topaz gains 20 mastery at the cost of only 10 intellect. The net result is +60 mastery and -21 int (due to the 5% bonus to int from mail specialization).With the above changes, I managed to squeeze the gear until it gave me exactly 17% spell hit, as well as +66 mastery rating, -12 haste rating, -21 and int compared to Josh's setup. http://chardev.org/?profile=362206For comparison, off the above linked build, I swapped out the tier shoulders for the Imperfect Specimens and the Resto tier chest for the Elem one. Once again, I got exactly 17% hit rating exactly, along with +15 mastery rating, +22 haste rating, and +0 int compared to Josh's setup. http://chardev.org/?profile=362210Conclusion: the Imperfect Specimens + Elemental tier chest > tier shoulders + Resto chest.
