So, i was taking a look at DREAM Paragon's main team warlock Verdisha and noticed that on his gear, he socketed +160 Expertise +160 Mastery gems on his red sockets instead of the "traditional" +80 Int +160 Mastery. His spec is Affliction.
After this i was left wondering:
Does Expertise points equal hit rating simply put, or is there some internal mechanic/some math to it?
Does Expertise have any advantage over Hit rating?
Wouldn't it be theoretically better to gem int+mastery and get the remaining hit rating we need from reforging instead of sacrificing a major stat?
Sadly RAWR isn't working with warlocks atm for me to play around with gems, and honestly i wouldnt know how to tackle the situation, expertise on warlocks is still something new to me..
