Resto Druid haste vs Mastery

Hi there, I read the awesome sticky guide in the forum and it answered most of my questions, but I was curious as to what you guys think of haste vs. mastery? Or really all secondary stats actually.

I just started doing heroics so Im sure my gear isn't great since basically if was leather with int it was an upgrade. But now I'm getting to a point where I need to start being more particular with what gear I choose. Unless I am mistaken it appears that the secondary stats would be all that would seperate our gear choices from a boomkin correct? Or am I way off base? Any way, what are your thoughts on what secondary stats to focus on and why?

Thanks in advance for the help! Sorry for the rambling run on sentences.

Int>Spi>Haste>Mastery>Crit. Just my opinion.

For the most part, Balance gear and Resto gear are completely interchangeable. We have almost exactly the same stat priority list with a couple of distinctions:

1.) Balance only needs Spirit (Hit) to reach the 17% Hit cap. Anything past that does nothing for them, unlike Resto where it always contributes to in combat regen.

2.) Balance always wants more Haste. Resto (depending on the people you speak to and how they play) take Haste to ~915 to the first Rejuvenation breakpoint, then they focus on Mastery.


Balance: Int > Spirit (to the hit cap) > Haste > Mastery > Crit
Resto: Int > Spirit (to where you're comfortable in whatever content you're doing) > Haste (to ~915) > Mastery > Haste (~2004 I think for the second Rejuvenation breakpoint) > Crit

916 for the 5th Rejuvenation tick is mandatory, your choice whether you take 2005 haste for the extra WG tick. Between breakpoints, mastery is better.

HOW CONVENIENT YOU PUT ONE POINT OVER FOR BOTH NUMBERS OF WHAT I STATED!

Jerk ;)

well technically those are the correct breakpoints but because of rounding issues you won't actually get the extra ticks unless you're a bit over
