You're correct though in that crit/multistrike and versatility are, well, more versatile than mastery. If we assume low uptime though, and therefor low msw count, I wonder if going for stats that benefit msw heals is going to make a difference. I guess it doesn't matter which stats you go for if blizz wont improve our tools.

Crit is in any way possible our worst stat, even for PVE with 100% bonus.

I know this is a bit offtopic, but i cannot be arsed to create a new topic. How is Enhance PvE wise?
And YES for no flying club!
LB is so strong number-wise right now (because of the msw perk), that UF becomes super strong as a talent. It also raises LB to highest prio, and dwarves our actual melee attacks. My guess is enh is pretty similar game-play-wise compared to wotlk times, with the flurry change and LL perk. EotE would play into that as well, though some people say EM performs better. GCD-locked would be another similarity to old times, another reason why to take EM over EotE.
Frost Shock apparently is a waste of action bar space, because it doesn't work with EF (I supposed that gets fixed) and does pathetic damage, as it does not benefit from SS like ES did, or from UE:FT, as FS does. Again, likely fixed with the number pass(es).
EB performs bad in comparisson to LB, so it's not worth taking even in pvp (not mentioning it not benefitting from Flurry or EotE, afaik, and additionally causing gcd-locks). WF having no gcd means even more msw procs for evne more lbs.
So my noob guess is enh currently is a lb-machine with some SS/LL inbetween, and having to keep up UF:FT and UE:FT FS.

I would feel better if lava-lash did comparable damage so that you would have to juggle maximizing lava-lashes and lightning bolts to the same extent, but right now it's LB > ALL
also melee damage still too high on damage breakdown :<
- Single target is quite decent enh is one of best melee atm on beta
- Enh Lighting bolt is one of hardest hiting ability , its quite weard ,personal i hope that they will nerf LB and byff LL SS
- raid utility are almost non ( well almost every dps lost them so) off healing is much weaker then on live
- almost no chose in talents there is one good build AS/UF/LM , hope tuning will fixe it
- Ascendace is nerfed to the ground its more like 15 sec Hunter mode then offencive CD
Overal if we talk about numbers enh is in realy good spot, play style feal realy fast with new Flurry and enhanced Flame schock perks.
But like Omanley said enh is Lighting Bolt and Fire Novas spaming machines other abilitis are more like just filters
