I've got no ret tier, just off-set. Using HTF DA helm with LMG and Tortos shoulders. 543 Lei Shen legs (though I've also got 543 Durumu and Horri legs, but CBA to mess with gems/enchants on all of those). But I use the same bracers (536 Durumu bracers, haste rolled) and belt (JinRohk 543) for Prot and Ret. I have a RaDen belt, but find it subpar to what I'm using. What belt are you using over JinRohk? o.O
I still use the 608 cape with 200 stam as Ret; are you saying you swap in a 543/549?
Should i feel stupid for having a mastery build? I`m at 7,5% hit 15% exp , 12k points in mastery and 4k points in haste. My build seems to be working fine, i can tank lfr and normal TOT just fine and i`m not aiming for hc atm. i know everyone is going haste atm, and I`m starting to wonder if i`m not doing it the wrong way.
If you're killing the bosses that you want to kill and not wiping because of your set up then I can't see a problem
That being said, there's a reason everyone stacks haste: it's our go to stat.
Mastery may be doing more for you than stamina was for me, but I'd say its worth the cost of the gems/reforges to try out the haste build just to see how you find it.
However, you ARE "doing it wrong" in terms of purely getting max potential out of your character, if that is a concern. You'd be better off swapping those haste and mastery values, and perhaps dropping some expertise to pick up additional haste. It sounds like it's not a concern, though, so no worries

AH, this is what he's on about: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/9555305441
Let's hope/assume that it's just some tweaking that's boogered up the coding (like it did earlier this tier for a few days), instead of them trying to sneak this in under the radar.

Hello, i'd like to know if its worth getting 4set T16 next tier. There is so many offset items next tier with Haste/mastery, would it be better to go with those items instead?

Glad to see the meta gem change is just a bug, but I'm disappointed that they think a 50% higher proc chance on the tank meta will magically make tanks want it. It's still uncontrollable. If it were an on-use effect that were available every minute or something, it would be much more compelling even though the total damage reduction would be significantly lower. We don't care about unreliable TDR.
Unrelated, but grats on your nice Animus rank promdates.
Such silly changes, people are STILL going to use the dps meta gem for the same reason we don't like dodge and parry. Relying on rng to save us is just not good but they seem to continue to push the agenda of "avoidance stats and random procs for all!"
