Rule 1: Don't use chat-speak abbreviations like "atm."
Rule 6: If you don't know the answer, then don't post.

Based on my current thinking, I'm inclined to say crit will be BETTER with more haste because of the following: haste will increase the number of lava surges, however there will still be cases where LvB becomes available due to cooldown, not procs. Because of this, while the number of lava bursts per fight will increase, the number of lightning bolts, flame shock ticks, fulminations etc will increase higher (since haste doesn't affect lava burst's CD). As a result LvB will be less of our overall damage, so crit will be more useful. Note that this is all theory and not backed by numbers atm.
