Ok, I'm a decent fire mage and a semi smart person. But this is my first post on here so I feel like it's probably still a dumb question.
I recently acquired some new gear so I went to Rawr to optimize it, and it now wants me to reforge all of my crit to haste. I know that at some points, haste exceeds crit when you can reach another "tier" of haste, each tier being when it will contribute to your dot ticks. This makes sense to me. Otherwise it seems like with so many of our abilities being based off crit, that crit is the superior secondary stat under normal circumstances.
Anyways, when I was completely reforged for crit, I was well over the +2 combust tick (812 haste), and the next "tier" of any form for haste is the +3 combust tick/+3 other dots when herod tick (both occur at 1996 haste). When I fully reforged to haste in the manner that Rawr suggests, I am still a bit under this soft cap (sitting at about 1880 I believe).
So I am confused. Is haste really superior to crit in this plain ole plain ole situation? I'm not getting any dot ticks.... so it's just fireball cast speed really. Doesn't seem like it outways crit to me. Could someone please explain to me why Rawr thinks haste is better for me? Is my thinking of crit = amg wrong? Am I using Rawr wrong? Is Rawr wrong? A little math would be great too if someone has a good explanation.
