You're not using the spreadsheet properly. The goal isn't to figure out a standard set of stat weights that always apply; it's to figure out your current stat weights based on your current gear.
I figured that Redcape weights are for naked toon and then I asked myself - why would I use naked weights to make gear/enchants/etc decisions for a far from naked ret paladin?
Wouldn't it be much more useful for everyone to have weights for a hit/exp capped epic-geared ret?
I took my ret (mastery ~1800, crit ~1200, haste ~800) with Redcape spreadsheet and started adding 300 points to different ratings. Here is results:
Oops, seems quite different from what we used to think about values of haste and crit, isn't?
Judging by these results it was obvious that I had not enough Haste in my gearset and too much Crit.
Indeed, I took 3800 points of rating and started to split them in different proportions among Crit/Haste/Mastery.
My benchmark was 20,924 dps @ 1200/800/1800.
After some playing I found several sweet spots, namely:
Which would suggest that our optimal gearing strategy is not simple Mastery > Crit > Haste,
but more in line with 10% Crit / 30% Haste / 60% Mastery.
Would be cool to have colored cube graph for this, may be Redcape is up to it.
Keep in mind that anyone can repeat these results, I've done nothing special, just used Redcape spreadsheet with typical settings for a normal-modes geared ret.
P.S. I wonder if this post will be deleted ...
