I used askmrrobot.com to optimize my character.
It says I should use +320 haste gems in two slots. Then when I go to the guide on Icy Veins (there is even a link on the askmrrobot site) it says I should gem for intellect instead (int+haste if the bonuse gives int).
I thought hit till cap > intellect > soft cap haste > crit. Or maybe first hit the haste soft cap and the rest intellect.
I also found somewhere that at 9.xx% haste you will get an extra tick on your dots and at 24.9x% you hit the soft cap.
So why does it say I should gem for haste, I can't even reach the soft cap? If I would do it without askmrrobot.com I would just gem int on my belt and int+haste on my boots to get the +60 int bonus.
I have to say there is a lot of conflicting information on many websites. Also for rotations.
EDIT: also it tells me to put int+haste in the shoulder slot and then I get a mastery bonus. Why not just gem intellect in that slot? And now I am also wondering if the meta gem is any good. Maybe I would be better of just getting the int+crit meta gem and reforge differently.

Well, I am just going to say that askmrrobot is just completely wrong. I wouldn't use that tool to optimize your character. It makes no sense at all to gem for haste when intellect > haste and you are not even close to the haste soft cap of 8085.
Besides that, Pandaren's Step on boots instead of haste? If you got MF glyph and you are under 8085 haste getting the haste enchant is so much better than mastery and a little speed boost.
It's so far off or did I just miss something?
