Has anyone been able to try haste vs mastery for level 85 on any sims or parses for this patch? My guild is still raiding up to the last week of mop and we wanted to maximize dps changes.
"The ocean is a scary place. It's full of water and stuff."
SimCraft and Exemplar both appear to be saying Haste to the point where we should be changing out red Str gems to orange Str/Hst. And even doing that, Exemplar was showing a 10% or more drop in overall DPS before he found another bug in his spreadsheet that will further impact our DPS negatively.
My GF's paladin still shows holy wrath and consecrate in her spellbook, but righteous defense seems to be removed.
A note on the hitcap, it is not 769 but 768 rating. With a 102.45 rating to 1 percent hit, you would need 768,35 hit rating for 7.5%. You would think this will mean you need at least 769 but apparently it doesn't. I got exactly 768 and got 7.50% increased hit chance. I'm assuming the same goes for Expertise but I haven't checked that yet.

How is this stat priority working out for everyone since it seems to conflict with the results from Elitistjerks?5.0-("Tuesday") - Hit = Expertise > Mastery > Haste > Crit

When we solo, are we meant to use blessing of kings or might now?

Try it for yourself. Just by some dummy testing parses I noticed a dps increase of about 1k when using TV at 5 hp as often as possible. As opposed to popping it on every 3 hp.
Tho I just did about 16 mil dmg per try, so it's no where near accurate I guess. But always more dps when TV'ing at 5hp, so I'm sticking to that.
You also notice that you stand still doing nothing alot less. Tho that's still inevitable.
As for the OP, I'd add sacred shield into the prio list, since there actually are times when you just wait. Alltho, I guess it's kinda self explanatory. I'm gonna use that as a macro for our tank at least.

It isn't just a case of 'wait until 5HP to use TV', it is more like Don't use TV below 5HP whilst you have something that generates Holy Power off of CD.
If you have 3 Holy Power and all Holy Power abilities are on CD, then yes you should be using TV in that instance instead of going up to 5.
