Haste cap for destro

Warlock
Heya folks. I tried looking for this on EJ.com but I couldnt find anything towards it.

Now many of you say that at some point haste reaches a cap and any extra points should be reforged to mastery. My questions are is this true and if it is what number is the most efficient amount of haste you need before you reforge?

Thanks for the help folks
2681 is the highest plateau you can reach in current gear levels, which is when Immolate gains a total of 4 extra ticks during Bloodlust, and it gains an extra tick overall at the 2589 mark.

Mastery is about equal to crit in terms of weighting, so it's personal preference as to which you reforge into. I personally think Mastery is a bit better as it's a straight damage buff, whereas crit is relying on RNG and Destruction doesn't exactly crit very hard outside of Conflagrate anyway.
Now is this taking into consideration of DI with its haste buff? or is it 2589 at base?
Takes into consideration of every haste buff you can get.

Which are the 5% haste buff and DI. 2681 adds bloodlust on to that.

It takes into account @ 2589,
-DI
-5% Spell Haste from SPriest, Boomkin or Totem

@2681,
-DI
-5% Spell Haste from SPriest, Boomkin or Totem
-Bloodlust

You will most likely gain an extra tick or two while under the effects of Velocity (proc from Insignia of the Corrupted Mind) as well. Hurricane won't really do much unless you're close to a break point, but you should be using Power Torrent anyway.
Thanks for the excellent repsonses guys. Ill reforge to properly match the caps.
i reset my haste to suggested 2681 and my mastery went through the roof but my overall dps actually got worse...is that possible?
Haste for destro is:

2021 + 1 tick of immolate
10124 + 2 tick of immolate
18200 + 3 tick of immolate
26318 + 4 tick of immolate
