Being stuck with massive lump of hit rating from weapon and Ji-Kun trinket I'm on the same boat even after reforging away hit from every piece. The fact that the gear has so many blue sockets doesn't help either.
While in this situation it's a waste, the crit would be more useless, so it's easier to use better enchants and hope for reforges.
wait, so you're saying that hit above the cap is better than crit because you can hope your reforges eventually check out? as far as math is concerned, 70 Strength equivalent which you're fully benefiting is still better than 100 non-benefit stat.
