Headpiece question...

Paladin
Post Limit:
Should I use my current headpiece Lightning Emperor's Helmet (Gemmed properly, ofc.)

OR...

Doubtcrusher Helm with +982 Mastery and +982 Expertise? (NOTE: This item now has a meta slot and blue slot now!)

It's a gain of 280 strength, and a loss of (at most) 1001 haste, as well as a loss of (at most) 636 hit.

I have not factored in any reforges yet, but I might just run the two different sets through reforgenator just to see how it goes. I just don't know if losing so much haste is worth the meager strength gain, not to mention the hit loss.
I have the same dilemma on my pally I have a 516 with expertise on him that i got from the heroic scenario quest and tonight I got the 502 Lightning Emperors helm in LFR.

So your saying Zenal that the 502 is better? I should mention I have the legs too for the 2 piece bonus on him.
If the helm gets you the set bonus, then definitely use the helm, no question.

If you don't need it for a set bonus, the 516 is probably worthwhile unless it's itemized really badly.

I would say this is pretty accurate, and if you're anything like me, you have been having a hell of a time getting any kind of tier to drop. You can also go to askmrrobot and it will optimize your gear/stats with anything in your bags.
Ok thanks guys. I guess I'll gem it.
