With MoP out, I've started to tank as MS, and was wondering if anyone considered going Mastery > Hit/Exp > Haste > Avoidance (with caps being optional) yet? I know some high-end tanks went with Haste during 4.3 - Probably when stuff was on farm, however still valid point.
The reason Haste works well, is due to it supporting Mastery as our main stat because of the increase in DS's we'll be able to pull.
So my questions are;
Does the fact that we should, to decrease the danger of burst damage, be reactive on our DS casts rather than maximizing the DS/min-count diminish the value of Haste?
Because of the standard 1.0 sec GCD in all presences now, is Haste worse than in 4.3 for tanks?
I have to admit that I, as a tank, still try my best to give the dps opponence on the meters - am I a baddie?
And most importantly I guess; is this too early? Is pure avoidance better until the healers are better geared?
Thanks a lot fellas, I hope this can bring up an interesting discussion.
