I am also worried that since they are putting so much work into garrisons, it will be mandatory for getting gear at the start of the expansion + getting your crit buffs. Replace dailies with castleville.
The thing with switching gemming from agi to haste is that you can't do it until haste is actually significantly better than half of agi. The reason is that increasing agility increases the value of haste, so if you're at the point where haste is close to half of agi, what happens when you switch to agi gems, you lose haste scaling and causes agility to be optimal. In my case when I was near that breakpoint I did indeed gem agi/hit in blue sockets but haste in yellow and agi/haste in red to moderate the amount of agility/scaling.
Stats interact in very complex ways and it's not as simple as "this scales better, let me get more of it." It's not that simple because getting more of one thing is at the expense of something else and that something else influences the original something you're getting more of. In the case of gemming for combat, more haste is at the expense of agility, and agility increases the value of haste.
OP: It appears your agility isn't high enough to switch to gemming to haste yet. I'd recommend spending all of your elder charms each week on grand empress and lei shi to try for a sha touched offhand. That 500 agility gem will go a long way to helping your cause. My gear is similar to yours but I have over 15k agi and I am gemming haste (I also have +500 agi bracer enchant and 500 agi legendary gem which accounts for half of that 2k discrepancy). I'd also recommend spending valor to upgrade your relic. That will give you a good chunk of agility and based on the content you're clearing, you'll likely have that for a while still.
