thanks for the clarification guys
So the guide says that gem for pure expertise if not capped and then pure haste if capped. Is this really the best way, since it feels weird when i could use agi/exp gems too for the agi bonus?
Aah ok thanks. Not sure if the gem was agi/hit or something, cant check it now since servers are offline.
Edit: I also noticed you comparing 60+120 stat gem with a 320 stat gem. the agi / haste version of the gem equivalent to the 320 haste gem is 80 + 160. And after looking again your post contradicts itself since you say 60 agi 120 haste at first, then 60 + 160 right after. Would you mind looking at that gemming problem again with the correct stats in mind?

No, you're right. I'm trying to raid and answer questions during offtime and I'm distracted.
I was thinking of a 60 NON-agi socket... a 60 agi socket, as long as you use an agi / secondary and not a stamina / secondary or agi / stamina (unless you're easily hit capped), it'll be better. Stamina isn't amazing for gemming unless it's a biiiiig EH fight.
So another question. What is the best heroic weapon to use? I got ghostheart and the staff from snowdrift, but ive seen some people using the one from the monk guy in scarlet monastery?
Honestly the best itemized one are the fist weapons from Siege of Niuzao Temple unless you can reach the expertise cap without having to reforge or gem into which i doubt you can. http://www.wowhead.com/item=81286 thats the weapon.
Staff wise Ghostheart is your best choice from heroic dungeon drops.
I'm using Firestorm Greatstaff just because I wanted to transmog the staff =)
I see what happens tonight. I am going full Mastery for Feng Heroic 25 Man. Last night I was getting pummeled with 15% exp hit cap and haste stacking. I was able to shift the stagger about 6% without losing any HP keeping hit cap losing exp hard cap.

We haven't put any effort into looking at the epicenter buff yet, Thursday I will be looking at that since we need to get the interrupt on epicenter down.
Granted maybe I have badass healers though. After arcane they are usually sitting at about 85-90% mana.
@Judgment, try taunting off at 2 stacks - you'll have enough time to reset the stacks easily, and you take way less damage. The lightning phase seems to be the only iffy one. I would suggest reforging for hit and exp soft cap, then go haste > crit > mastery, AND gemming stamina to get your HP pool up (it's basically only magic damage), try to match socket bonuses as well, they're usually worth it. Also don't forget to use Avert Harm + Zen Meditation on a non-bubbled Earthquake or Arcane Vortex.
I've killed him twice now, granted on 10 man, with 15% expertise etc. Most of the damage is from the dot so if your late with taunting/ don't use Diffuse Magic properly then you'll take a truck load of damage.
If you link some logs it might help shed some light
On a different note:
Got Dancing Steel on both my weapons and had a nearly 50% uptime on most fights.
