I did some poking around,but didn't come across the answer.

Does haste have a soft cap for Shadow priests??

Thanks in advance.

50% total haste (gear + talents) is the "soft cap" at which you will be stuck at 1 second GCD. This was more of an issue for specs that gain large haste benefits (old Borrowed Time meant disc priests only needed ~12% haste to soft cap shield spamming).

At current gear levels its definitely impossible to soft cap on haste outside of Bloodlust/Heroism/Time Warp.

50% is hard cap, for the most part.

around 75% of our damage would be hard capped at 50% haste, mind flay and mind sear are the only exceptions.

Right. Anyway, whether people believe in haste plateaus or not, there are certain amounts of haste which add another DoT tick to certain DoTs, id' say if you're close to one and can reforge/gem to it then go for it. Otherwise just gear up according to your simmed stat weights.

There is no realistic haste cap. Your dots shouldn't be falling off, so when it adds another dot tick to the normal duration is irrelevant.

Certain Dots? Would theese dots be DP and just DP? Cause adding another tick would increase the damage of IMP DP? There are no haste plateus, adding more haste to our dots means the dots duration is reduced or increase in ticks. The more haste you have the more damage we do, only when we reach the GCD cap is haste devalued in our stat weights. Even after that fact haste may still be worth more than mastery/crit, due to the fact our dots will still tick faster/duration reduced once again.

Yes there is a soft cap, no you wont reach it this teir or next more than likely. Stack as much haste as you can.

if you have 1000% haste (theoreticalover the top cookie example) your dots tick so fast that you lose the ability to time your reapplication efficiently between the last two ticks, as your GCDs cap out, but your dots inch ever closer together, eventually becoming impossible as to when you are actually reapplying it without clipping dots ticks, without forfeiting it all and losing dot uptime.

Assuming perfect conditions you'd be right.

If you're not comfortable with keeping dots up 100% (PvP, weird boss mechanic, etc.), then yes, this would have an effect. Then again, it's not too hard to keep them up anyways, so it's really a matter of personal preference.

Basically what I'm saying is that at 100% uptime, it's irrelevant. Under that and it gains relevancy, but rarely will it be under that.

(Not disagreeing, just collaborating).
