Please try to pay closer attention to your grammar when posting here. I realize that English may not be your first language, but we don't put spaces before punctuation marks and use paragraphs (you don't need to hit enter after every line).
First, we must gear Hit to 17%.

This is going to be pretty hard with crit rates being as high as they are, so I'm choosing crit rating as the second stat to reforge after spirit.
I'm currently planning to gear around hit-cap, 23.3% crit and 1269 haste breakpoint, but I still don't know whether reforging/regemming into intellect or mastery would be optimal. I'm probably going to try raiding with full mastery first, then later reforge into intellect to see which one provides a bigger difference.
Second, you make a mistake in your calculation of the crit cap. There is another buff and talents :
I think it will be difficult to have the +5% crit buff and the -5% Crit Debuff at the same time in a raid 10.
- Piercing Ice : +3% Crit
- Molten Armor with glyphe : +5% Critique
- Buff or Debuff : +5% Critique
- Total : +13%
So, the Critique Soft Cap will be 20% form Gear (crit and intell). It will be very difficult at 85
edit : In the first post, there is a little mistake il'ts "Shattered Barrier", not "Shaddow".
Question : why did you only take 2/3 Ice Floes ?
