    Will Enhancement Mastery affect legendary gem?

    The Gem causes a Lightning Strike dealing nature damage. That said, shouldnt our mastery buff it as it does elemental force?

    I feel like items like this and rune of origination will keep mastery VERY attractive to Enhancement. With the Rune we stand to gain probably 20% mastery or more per proc... Add that to this gem and all our other spells... I just can't see haste pulling ahead. (Of course this is perfect world scenario)

    It affected No'kaled so I don't see why it wouldn't, fingers and toes crossed!

    I am pretty skeptic about that Rune of Origination though, since our other secondary stats are so close in value to mastery. Overall a weird trinket imo, it will affect Flurry procs since some crit is removed and nerf our Fire elementals damage when the haste is removed. Going to be very interesting to see some numbers on it.

    OT: I don't see why it wouldn't be increased, it's dps increase is probably already calculated into that extra modifier that's be shown for each spec.

    Out of curiosity, but isn't Mastery VS Haste dependent on which talents you take? I know it was that way in 5.1, but haven't looked too much at 5.2 to see if the case is the same.

    I'm pretty sure it will be affected by mastery, given how low is multiplied its base proc rate for enha.

    As far as I can tell... all procs like this are affected by mastery (the might be some exception somewhere but I dont remember it).

    I agree that mastery will probably go up a bit in stat value this tier but lets not jump to conclutions just yet, lots of theorycrafting needed before we can say anything. Worst case scenario, mastery end up best secondary with haste and crit behind but not too dramatical. And to be fair all that means is you might end up reforging into mastery here and tehre.

    Let us wait a see.

    pretty sure it will. that's why enh's coefficient is low.

    According to GC, it does benefit from survival's mastery, so we can safely assume it benefits from ours as well.

    this , they want all classes and specs gaining similar amount
