Hey hey. Long time reader, but this is my first post. I've had a question that's been bugging me for a while now, and am hoping the members here can help me out.
We all know the PP numbers for spriests, and we all know that a relative balance of stats is good to have, instead of just stacking a single stat like SP. That said, what stats take priority once you have others where you want them?
Assuming hit rating stays the exact same (just above cap), should we aim for 11% haste, even if it means dropping a little crit and some SP? This is my dilemma. I have 2 sets of gear - one that puts me at 9% haste, with crit and SP numbers right where I want them, and another that puts me at 11% haste, but drops 1% crit and 100 SP when compared to the first set. Though PP shows crit/SP to be superior to haste, I feel that each stat has it's advantages when you have certain amounts of it. Though numbers dictate it is not, is having that extra 2% haste worth the losses in other areas?
Basically, do you feel that there's a certain number you should have a stat at, even if it means sacrificing a technically superior stat? Is it personal preference or a numbers game?
I'm very sorry if this should be obvious to me, but I've gone over it in my head a million times, and have read about as much as I can without my brain exploding.
