Mastery is not a percentage

Just a reminder, you don't have 14% mastery. You have 14 mastery points. Just like you don't have 26% expertise, you have 26 expertise points.

Lord it bothers me when people say "i haz 12% mastery luls"

Sometimes they might be referring to the proc chance for their mastery.

I can get a 20% chance to proc the ret mastery (Hand of Light I think) and I would be correct in saying that my mastery is at 20%. The rating is different.

People talk about crit% or haste% ect., not the rating they have.

I've yet to see someone actually use the translated Mastery boost percentage when referring to their stats.

it actually makes more sense to refer to the percentage benefit you get for your mastery, as not every mastery gives the same percentage benefit per point.

For me, my shaman gets an extra 2% chance to proc an overload per point of mastery, but my warlock only gets a 1.25% increase dmg per point of mastery

I have zero mastery but near 55% crit or so.

Yeah, I'm lazy, plus crits are more fun for gear that doesn't matter!

Yep.

Anyway, I like the non-percentage better. Easier to understand when talking to people who might not be your spec or class.

EDIT: And it means I don't need to check someone's spec. I say "I've got 32% Mastery" and you don't know if I'm Frost, and reforging for the stuff, or Unholy and avoiding it entirely.

Um, I have 38% mastery. That's what it says in the tooltip. I can't tell you the actual mastery rating because I didn't log out in my pve gear but there is nothing wrong with stating the mastery as a percentage if that's how it works for your class/spec. I know for elemental we analyze our logs and compare the RNG to the stated mastery % and it works out about spot on.

You don't need to look at the rating. You don't even need to look at the tooltip. The number we're talking about is the number you'd have to hover your mouse over to see the tooltip.

In your case, 16.78
