    Shadow Issues

    http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte...sichi/advanced

    That is my lovely panda priest and i am thinking of something.

    While i cant reach the 25% hastecap in preraid gear. Is it valuable more to reforge like to crit until i can reach hastecap? Or should i even reforge from crit to haste just to get closer to that hastecap? i know crit is better than mastery once u reached the hastecap hence i am asking this so i know how to reforge for better performance.

    Just use Reforge Lite. Haste > Crit > Mastery



    Then Calculate -> Show -> Reforge

    Pretty much what the poster above me said, Still go for Haste>crit>Mastery, Allthough don't gem for full haste until you can reach the hastecap by only switching 1-2 gems.

    in my openion i prefer for u to stack 320 haste until u reach the haste breakpoint which is 8085

    even if u play with lower hit cap it is worth it... with 5k haste u can't do much and try to stack quick (320) haste cap

    even the bonus in the gear just ignore it you will do great

    No please don't do this. You want to be hit capped and you don't want to give-up more than 400 int for haste.

    Do you mean 24% haste in shadowform or normal?

    You need 8085 rating for the soft cap (which is 24% in shadowform iirc).

    do you mean int or PP?

    considering the double stats on haste gems over int gems, if haste's value is more than half that of int you wouldn't be losing anything gemming 320 haste, sim your toon

    Haste isn't worth that much, and the secondary stat values are all pretty equal in terms of overall value. You should be gemmed/enchanted for max int.

    It's only more than half the value of int if you are pretty close to the cap anyways (right around 300 haste away). And I meant int. If you are switching out 4 160 int gems (a total of 640 int) for pure Haste gems to reach the breakpoint you aren't likely to see much of an increase in dps. You want to get there with sacrificing as little Int as you can. If you can do it with only two or three gem replacements then it is more likely worth it. It's definitely worth it if you can do it with one replacement.

    I actually don't like reforge light ... I think AMR is much better, but maybe I just don't know how to use it correctly.

    I've used reforgelite since my DK hit 85 in Cata.

    It's really simple to use, you just select your class/spec/weapon, hit the calculate button, and then hit reforge.

    It's not let me down, it knows the stat weights, and knows which items to reforge to what. It even un-reforges and re-reforges items that have a different optimal reforging.
    Sometimes I think I should have rolled a Priest....

    Same boat actually. Can't for the life of me figureout what I am doing wrong with reforgelite. It's probably something painfully simple though ><
