Based on several top parsing assassination rogues on WoL, it seems like most rogues do not follow the reforge/gem recommendations that shadowcraft recommends. I have plugged in a lot of the players with number 1 parses into shadowcraft just for curiosity's sake and most of them(according to shadowcraft) are reforging completely wrong. For example, some players are still going straight mastery and ignoring haste/crit altogether when shadowcraft is telling them that they should be focusing on haste/crit and dropping a lot of mastery. I am aware that all 3 our stats synergize well with one another and that the more you have of one stat, the more appealing the latter two stats will be. However, I am wondering if shadowcraft is placing too much value into crit due to our set bonus. It seems like no matter which rogue I plug in, shadowcraft is recommending a haste/crit build for most assassination rogues, but I see people like Fayz of Blood Legion with fucking 114% mastery unbuffed which seems like something shadowcraft would not recommend.
So who is correct? The people who are not following shadowcraft's recommendations and getting top parses, or shadowcraft?
