Now I am fine if this is the way it will be. Learning to choose the right gear based on stats and not e-peen is enjoyable to me. What I will not enjoy is passing on mastery gear for a while to prefer other stats, grinding and spending JPs in the process, only to finally see a "fix" for mastery that would invalidate potentially costly decisions already made to avoid mastery on gear.
Can someone from Blizzard please let the Ret community know if there is a change coming to improve the value of mastery for Ret? And if so, is there a time-frame?
