Feral DPS Discussion

For mastery, I tried to reforge whatever stat of crit and haste that Mew was reporting as worth less on the RSV table*, which seems intuitive enough. However, I was a little unsure in that I could generally convert more crit into mastery than haste into mastery.
*Once I approached ~65% crit unbuffed, it started to show haste with a lower RSV than crit.
Is there an easy way to work out which of haste and crit is worth reforging to mastery once they both hit a breakeven point and then start to move in opposite directions, when the value being reforged is slightly different? I'm having a brain fart moment, and don't quite have the time to sit down and sum up RSVs for each piece of gear : \

RSVs as I'm currently geared:
Weapon DPS: 4.34
Mastery Rating: 2.15
Crit Rating: 1.41
Expertise Rating: 1.37
Haste Rating: 1.37
Hit Rating: 1.36
Attack Power: 0.93
I'd like to offer moral support, but I have questionable morals

RFlow = reforge the low (and weaker) stat
RFhigh= reforge the high (and stronger) stat
We want to find when:
RFlow < RFhigh
high * RSVhigh + low * RSVlow * 0,6 + low *0,4 * RSVMastery < high * 0,6 * RSVhigh + high *0,4 * RSVMastery + low * RSVlow
This can be simplified to:
RSVMastery > (high * RSVhigh - low * RSVlow) / (high â€“ low)
or (where diff = high - low)
RSVMastery > (low *(RSVhigh - RSVlow) + diff * RSVhigh) / diff
This equation don't make us much more enlightened though. Plugging in some reasonable numbers might give us a little info.
Using high = 110, low = 100, RSVhigh = 1,41 and RSVlow = 1,37 as in your example gives that if RSVMastery > 1,81 its still worth reforging crit for you. However doing the "wrong" reforge is about 1 dps difference if RSVMastery = 2,13.
Increasing only the RSVhigh to 1,47 and using same numbers for the rest, gives RSVMastery > 2,47 for it to be worth reforging the better stat. The difference between the 2 alternatives are still less then 2 dps though. Bumping the RSVhigh to 1,57 gives RSVMastery > 3,57 to brake even and penalty for doing it wrong to 5dps.
To conclude it is depending on a lot of factors, but unless they are pretty close in value reforging the weak stat is likely the best. But making the wrong decision isn't a catastrophe.

Aldriana: I am an asshole, it just so happens that some of my colleagues are even *bigger* assholes.

Khazal: Yeah, I don't know about Magic Rainbow Unicorn Land, but here in Reality, Rhyolith is the worst encounter Blizzard has ever designed.
