My mage is current 463 ilvl, full dungeon heroic gear. The only thing is, I cannot reach the hit cap. I tried using wowreforge to get to the 5100 hit cap and it said not possible, and I even checked Mr Robot and that told me to gem and enchant for expertise. Does being at hit cap matter right now? Am I supposed to gem+enchant expertise? Thanks
oO I easily get to hit cap if I reforge to +hit and +expertise (expertise also give hit for mages). So if an item has haste and hit you can reforge haste into expertise. For raiding it's definitely a must have to be hit capped. I will have it on thursday (our first raid). My itemlevel currently is 460 - nothing special.
yeah guys did you look at his gear? It might help if you didn't reforge hit into haste you wasting 400 some hit for no reason man. Your neck bracers and sandals. and also since mastery is crap for fire mage and you need hit cap first you reforge this into hit/exp then crit then haste. You are pretty much reforged completely wrong.
hear you go. You curently have on your gear 3,536 hit and if you reforged all your mastery to hit you would get 425 hit from it at this point you will have 3,961 hit rating. Next all you have to do is reforge all the haste on your gear to hit/Exp(if the piece of gear already has hit on it, but has haste this is when you reforge your haste to exp) after you have done this you should have around 1,286 hit from reforging your haste giving you a grand total of 5,259 hit rating and you don't even need those crappy hit gems yay!

So is this why mr robot is so keen for me to gem and reforge into expertise? i thought it was an error on their part.
Sorry to steal the thread but hopefully it should only take one post for me to understand but could someone quickly explain how and why we use expertise?
Have your combustion miss in a fight then ask if you need to be hit capped. Between being able to use expertise on gloves and hit on boot enchants to get you there is should be very easy to cap out without even reforging all items to hit/expertise.

Yeah I'm wearing pieces of gear from MSV and my lowest level item is a single 450 (bloody robes won't drop), and I still need to reforge into expertise in order to reach the hit cap.
(I wouldn't bother looking at my armoury right now though, haven't bothered reforging since I bought the VP ring so I am below the hit cap, even with my expertise)
