If you really want to go down into the threshold issue, you'll probably not come around to account for the "real" haste value.
According to http://elitistjerks....l_85_cataclysm/ this is 326/(10*82/(262-3*70)) ¹ at level 70.
Although there may be another round of rounding involved in the calculation of the haste value itself (and which is different to what the character sheet says).


¹ Haste Rating / ( Base Rating at Level 60 * ( 82 / (262 - 3 * Level) ) )


Interesting. I will say that (thankfully) the calculations end up still being extremely close.
I did test on my 85 (which is only Combat however) to make sure I was correct, and the numbers in-game came out virtually the same as the manually figured numbers. I say it with such words since there's still rounding involved.

Oh yes, and I do have a new question to ask. What are the proc rates of the dagger sets' Suffering, Nightmare, and Shadows of the Destroyer buffs?

4. The legendary proc is currently being modeled as purely a stacking Agility effect rather than a resetting stacking buff with free finishers mixed in.

Considering this means that I cannot simply 'ask shadowcraft', how much does the value of Coup de Grace increase with the legendary? And if so, is it worth moving a point from Lethality into CdG? (And is rupture still worth using in the rotation with this spec?)

I'm pretty sure 3/3 CdG is superior, it was already starting to out-value Lethality by a few digits for rupture-less play before legendary.

My question now is, how much value does Ruthlessness loses? Will 3/3, 3/3 be clearly superior now?
