So I've been trying to figure out my Enh alt, it's gearing up to be an option for 5.2 heroic progress and I'm making sure I'm getting the hang of stats and all that good stuff.
Read a lot of info online, most of it seem to suggest Mastery => Haste > Crit, some cases Mastery just flat out better than Haste.
Problem is when I sim my own character, I get Haste as the vastly better stat. I also sim Strength higher than any secondary stat - suggesting Str enchant on gloves for example would be better than Mastery.
I figured, alright I'll set up my character for a Haste build, so I did. Relogged / update armory, import to SimC, re-run the stat weights.
This time I get: Mastery > Crit > Haste.
Re-do with the character in a Mastery build. Sure enough: Haste > Crit > Mastery.
SimC is set to run Patchwerk scenario, fight length ~450 seconds, etc etc it's set up correctly, take my word for it. 50'000 iterations, i.e. more than enough to take out the randomness.
What's going on? There shouldn't be any haste breakpoints in the 2800-5600 range (that's how big I can swing the stats around through reforging), or at all for that matter, should there? I'm really confused by this, and moreover, I'm really frustrated I can't find any straight proof that one is the correct way to go. I find it hard to believe that I'm somehow supposed to balance the two around some arbitrary ratio or number.
Anyone able to explain what's going on here?
For reference my character is here: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte...Alhov/advanced
Though I don't see how it's really relevant, what concerns me is the weird indecisive SimCraft behaviour. If I'm reforged for Haste, it tells me Mastery is better. If I'm reforged for Mastery, it tells me Haste is better.
I expected my own personal stat weights to be different from the BiS-oriented ones cited on guides etc, which is why I sim my own, but yeah in this case it's not really helping...
