This is my first post so just want to apologize ahead of time if this is in the wrong area.
Moving on, I play a destro lock use the spec for pretty much everything and while I don't consider myself a hardcore raider I am always on the lookout for ways to increase my dps and to try to make myself a better raider overall. Until very recently I thought that the general reforging for destro was
and as such forged my gear to fit that but then I did an LFR, I have a gear level of 491 which I thought was fairly decent, in that LFR I came across a destro lock that was literally just getting into terrace by the skin of his ilvl arse he wasn't beating me in dps but he was very close to matching it and it took me awhile to realize that he forged his gear to focus mostly on mastery.. ie.
mastery>crit>hit>haste (as far as I could tell)
So this sent me into a flurry of research and has since left me confused because this goes against what I thought was "right", so what is best for destro locks when it comes to reforging?
I was under the impression that reforging out of hit cap would leave you with a chance to miss on a chaos bolt for example which could be a potentially painful dps loss... so how do you make up for it if the second form of reforging is in fact more desirable for destro locks?
Thanks for your time and replies!
