Part Dos of my epic posting about spell haste rating.
First off, I’m going to address some of the concerns brought up in the comments on the last post. Delos, the whole 15.?!?? haste rating = 1% only applies to attack speed haste rating. It is not the number for spell haste conversions, but for melee peoples like rogues and warriors. For them, its a whole new can of worms, since auto-attacks don’t actually have a cap on their haste ratings.
For spellcasters, its still 21 haste rating, sadly.
And again, I cannot stress this enough. There is NO STAT that should deter you from spell hit rating if you are under the cap. Simply put, there is no stat that is better than spell hit for DPS increases. Get spell hit capped before you even start caring about the rest of the stuff.
And Megan is definitely right. Spell Haste is a wonderful stat for PvP.
I’ve talked about it before. Mobility is one of the most important things to have in a competitive environment. If your spells take less time to cast, thats less time you’re sitting there, self-snared. The GCD be damned, if you have a Paladin casting .8 second Flashes of Light…
Well, its self explanatory. Good luck stopping that cast from getting off.
Anyhoo. Part two. (more…)
