Message to User:

I would strongly encourage you to use Simcraft. It is much easier to use than it seems. Read its FAQ or instructions and experiment.

Original Post:

I know it's been discussed in length already but I feel one point was missed.
From OP:

Gemming Str + Haste (Fierce) Orange in Red sockets, full Haste (Quick) in Yellow sockets, and Hit + Haste (Lightning) in Blue sockets yields more dps than going full Str gems. 160 Str vs (320 Haste * 0.54 Str-equivalent per Haste) = 160 Str vs 172.8 Str-equivalent. This will only increase as gear gets better.

Otherwise you want to continue to gem as much Str as possible for the same reasoning as above.

The transition point between Str or Haste gemming is fluid. Please use a tool to determine stat weights for your gear - if 2 Haste > 1 Str, gem for Haste. If 2 Haste is < 1 Str, then gem for Str.

I'm using JC and BS as my professions, I was wondering what I should be doing with prismatic sockets. Sounds to me like if 2 haste > 1 Str (I don't know how to work SimC but I'm at 485 gear, so I assume I've reached the inflection point) then I should be using haste yellows and that makes sense. But what do i do with my serpent's eye gems? Again I haven't run simc but I don't think 480 Has > 320 str (at least not yet.) I guess JC is just underpowered. Based on past experiences I don't think they're going to buff it either and when epic gems come out, JC will be almost useless. Maybe it's time to switch something else.
