Mar 4th 2012 2:04AM Probably a good time to point out that relative stat values for haste and mastery change pretty frequently along our gearing path, so be sure to sim your stats if you want to know what is best for you at your current gear level.
If you're looking for general guidelines (that are not hard and fast rules, just guidelines):
No 4PCT13, No DTR: Haste > Mastery
4PCT13, No DTR: Haste ~= Mastery
4PCT13, DTR: Haste < Mastery
Mar 30th 2011 12:31PM As the author of aforementioned EJ Elemental article, your information is out of date. Prior to 4.0.6 Haste was a clear winner over mastery at current gear levels, but that is no longer the case. Sarah is correct, and you should read this article and the EJ guide more carefully.
Feb 26th 2011 1:59AM That's an issue that Pewter touched on (the ramp-up time). Since FS is still on the shock cooldown, with glyph and reverb the max number of FS DoTs that can be out at once is five. That's a good bit of AoE damage once it all gets rolling, but that would take a full 25 seconds to place, and for most fights with AoE phases its over far before that.

Aug 20th 2010 10:48AM Just as a note, that 550 mastery rating for 34% proc chance was at level 81. I'll have more info about the higher level conversions as I level, but it's safe to say it's likely going to take a lot of mastery rating to push that percentage up to the 33% range at 85.
Jul 14th 2010 12:02AM Have to say, I'm a little disappointed. Same %X talents, no real choice. No real change, aside from fewer points in the trees.
