Mut: Mastery & Expertise

Rogue
So I've been researching for stat priority and every where says one of 2 things.

Agility > Yellow Hit > Mastery > Expertise Cap > Haste > Crit > White Hit
or
Agility > Yellow Hit > Expertise Cap > Mastery > Haste > Crit > White Hit

My DPS isn't terrible, I know my rotation fine. I'm just trying to squeeze whatever I can out of my current gear setup.As far as the priority goes, I'm currently the latter of the two.

My main question is this however: Is the Mastery priority that much of a DPS increase or is sticking with expertise just fine.
Mastery synergizes very well with other stats for assassination, at low gear levels like you are at now you won't see a huge dps increase, .5% at most. In better gear expertise capping can be a larger dps loss, up to about 1.5% in extreme cases but in general it isn't a huge margin.

That said I'm curious why you prefer expertise.

Eh, I kind of see why. It's nice knowing that you won't get those random parries or dodges, regardless of Mastery's relavence. Also, even capping Expertise over Mastery, I'm only losing under 100 DPS. Going full on Mastery has never been that big of a DPS increase, and it's safe going with what you're used too.

More or less. I was just curious to see if there was a huge difference in the DPS loss/gain on the different priorities.
I thought it was ok to get a random parry or dodge seeing as you still receive the Envenom buff, but are refunded 80% of the energy I believe? So that would give you very high uptime on the buff.

I remember for Mut we used to not care so much about expertise for this reason... why do we care now?

Expertise is no more valuable now then its been before, we didn't go out of our way to cap before and we still don't.
Yea but for a .5% return with a possible chance at having to miss attacks due to dodge/parry is it really worth it? Considering reforging is a 2 second ordeal for anyone that has reforgelite
