    Enhancement shaman and haste gems

    When is it a good time to switch to full haste gems? I've heard conflicting opinions about it. Some say it's when haste's value rises above 3.0, others say it's when you have 2 RPPM trinkets AND the meta. I've even read that it's beneficial only when you're in full or at least half heroic gear. What factors contribute to the change to haste gems?
    A typical raid leader command would be something like "Yo Scrub, why don't you YOLO 1337 yards to the left because the boss's Swag is about to hit us in 3 seconds".

    Quick, call Ukraine and Russia, let them know to put their conflict on standby because Touch of Elune is BULLSHIT!

    Especially if you have Renataki and Juju.

    So... that's the only reason, then?

    Well from personal xp, as a 10m raider I switched from echo+uf full mastery and agility to as+uf with agility and orange haste gems.

    It was only after my 4pc+2 trinkets + legendary meta that i switched to full pure haste.

    And I might say that our DPS is completely balistic atm with the recent buffs.

    Thats the short answer.

    Long answer will be to sim it yourself to double check, because your supporting gear will also have an impact. Im at about 519ilvl and Im still not at the point where Haste has overtaken Mastery (however I am also missing Renataki) but have been simming to check for that as well.

    Exactly, to be 100% sure you should sim your character and do reforge plots.
