    Another haste cap thread: geming this time

    Heya fellows 'lock,

    I have a specific probleme to submit, in my case i upgraded my stuff (ilvl 495), i had 14.5 approx hit + 6700 haste (second plateau) reached before i upgraded but with reforging, now that i have looted better stuff i can't reach that plateau just by reforge (keeping my hit rating).

    So this is my question:

    Should i stick to the ~4800 plateau with my gems being mastery ones
    Or should i put in my yellow socket, haste gems and reach that ~6700 plateau ?
    in other words, is geming pure haste a non sense or not ?

    Just do a SimulationCrafting based on which changes you want to.

    For me, even in ilvl 489, was better go after 6700 haste and after stack mastery then 4717 + mastery by about 200-300 dps.

    only singeltarget dps gain if you do it

    I'd gem haste, reforging is a little easier to handle with especially with reforge lite (addon).

    So if you needed the Mastery for the multi-dot fights you can easily rework your setup by a couple clicks instead of regemming. The idea can work both ways, but with a "Haste cap" its more of a foundation thing and the mastery can be flexible.

    Why? Mastery is not better in multi-dot than Haste, it is?

    Why are your letters fat?

    It's going to be a question of very little dps loss/gain, so go for what you prefer. I personally prefer my dots lasting for a long time (reaching haste plateaus), this makes multidotting easier and casting fast is always lovely.

    as far as i remember the principle is : lenght stay the same for a dot, only the amount of "tick" from the duration is changed by haste plateaus

    thanks for answers, did a quick simcraft, difference is ~500 dps in favor of ~4800 haste + mastery than ~6700 haste then mastery
