Fire mage stat priority [pvp] 4.3

Mage
What is the popular stat stacking for fire for pvp, haste then crit?
Int>>Crit>>haste>mastery.

After 4% hit and 240 spen ofc.
A lot of fire mages will get to 5% haste for an extra tick on combustion and then crit.

Others say 28% crit so you'll always crit on shatters.

how do you utilize shatter as fire mage in a situation ?

Frost Nova and Imp. Cone of Cold.

I've tried both. I prefer going all out Crit till 28%.

personal opinion though
Frost Nova and Imp. Cone of Cold.


imp?
Improved Cone of Cold. Tier 2 talent in the frost tree.
what would be a good pvp spec for fire mage in 4.3?
I saw some fire mage on my server who went mastery instead of crit, which one is better in 2s,3s,5s?

He was doing it wrong.

Mastery is the worst stat for fire no matter what you're using fire for, not because increasing your dot damage is bad, but because that's only increasing a portion of your damage, whereas crit and haste increases the whole package.

Crit for arena. Haste for RBGs

crit everywhere. then mastery or haste, but imo mastery is so much better.haste has almost no effect on anything a fire mage does where as mastery (especially if you multi-dot, which you'd have to be a clown not to) is just a HUGE damage increase.

after RBGS my damage usually comes out to 20% or more from Living bomb (dot) and another 18% of Living Bomb itself,
Since Jim is just going to argue with me I'll link another post from a more credible source.
