Arcane Mastery Cap?

An additional 17% to my dps sounds like something worth pursuing, especially seeing as I have more hit than I can use, does anyone know the actual mastery cap for arcane?

I don't think there is a cap on mastery for any spec.

The description says "up to" 17%, which suggests that any more mastery than what I need to hit that 17% would be a waste.

That's your current mastery bonus....

No cap. I saw a mage that had 20% dmg bonus. He would kick the crap out of me in the beginning of fights...I would catch him in the middle/end. (10man Halfus). We ended up the same.

What that means is at your current level of mastery, your spells will deal up to 17% extra damage based on the current amount of mana you have.

The way arcane's mastery works:

0% mana = 100% damage + 0% mastery bonus
100% mana = 100% damage + 100% mastery bonus (in your case 17%) = 117% damage
50% mana = 100% damage + 50% mastery bonus = 108.5% damage for you.
