I just changed my spec to shadow today and have been looking around for some information.. I am not regemming, reforging and trying things out because I simply don't have a lot of time or gold right now.
I don't have a lot of haste on my gear and I am having a very hard time reaching the haste cap.
So obviously my question is : is the 8064 haste breakpoint worth it for 487 equipped ilvl?
Don't bother gemming straight Haste yet, you can't reach the breakpoint (haste value increases dramatically within approx 3-400 haste of it, before that int is still worth more) even with 8 haste gems you still aren't reaching it. Drop back to Reckless gems in yellow, Brilliant in red, Purified in blue. If you manage to pull a few more haste based pieces or maybe even an elegon trinket, then run a sim on your character and see if haste passes the 0.5 Int value point, if it is, then feel free to gem for it.

Did you read this part? I already googled what I was looking for and found that page. I couldn't afford to sim. Whatever, I found the gold and found whats best for me. I am going goblin and reaching the cap.
