I'd like to ask about dealing with spec changes and gear.
I've been playing affliction for a while and I love the playstyle, but the recent nerfs have made me shift to destro at least while my guild is working on throne of thunder.
My gear is fairly decent, 498 ilvl but is based on my affliction spec, so i have abit over the 16.65% haste threshold, 48% mastery, hit capped, but with a rather pathetic crit of 11.34%. (all this is unbuffed)
What I would like to do is be able to switch back and forth without gimping my dps in either spec , and while i know this guide says mastery/haste > crit, I still feel like i should give it more attention then i am for better chaos bolts and more ember generation. Am i worried about nothing? is the crit number going to be made up by the high mastery? Should i consider swapping out gems for each spec, or even investing in different gear? (Which i dont think is going to be an option until i gear myself for the new raid).
