If you feel someone is asking something stupid, usually it's better to press the report button instead of replying with attitude. Since it's the simple questions thread, I'm going to leave all those posts there and just warn you both about the tone.
Been trying to find a definitive answer on these forums with regards to caps for fire mages - in specific crit chance.
For my mage, ive been getting the hit cap and then reforging any mastery or haste into crit and managing a rating of 2175 (which is 23% unbuffed).
The simple question is, how efficient is it for me to be continually pumping all haste/mastery into crit? Are there actual caps making increasing this no longer viable over using haster or mastery?
I imagine this is quite a loaded question but hoping some of you guys might be able to point me in the right direction.
Have you even read: http://elitistjerks....#Combat_Ratings ?
First off you're off base with your hit cap. 17% is the cap, not 23%. Secondly, haste vs crit for fire is VERY gear dependent. Read through some of the simcraft or RAWR stuff to get a handle on that. In fact, try using this: elitistjerks.com/rawr.php
Just an off note here. I'm not hit capped. Haven't ever been. I'm close now, but I've been as far as 2-3% below and still managed good DPS.
