When talking about haste (in terms of spells), people tend to say the effective cap is 650, after where the effect of haste is extremely inefficient. Looking at the only spell we got that scale decently with haste, Mind Flay, and the 4p Tier8 bonus, I'm thinking about it's clever to go over this cap.
Currently I have 466 passive haste rating, thus a total of 706 haste on Mind Flay, 56 over the cap. The proc only knocks of 0.11 second of my cast-time, rendering it less useful than if I could replace 100-150 haste rating from my gear.
I'm wondering if others agree this way, and that we could, when talking Pseudo Power for gear rating, write Haste as 0 value when we got over 300-350 haste?
Ideas I got would be to downgrade my Freya boots (see my armoury), with some boots with Critical Strike rating on them? But that would possible also lead to a drop in spell power, so not entirely sure (Idea would be Yogg-10 crit boots).
