Destro lock for raiding MOP

Well I kind of have an important question about stats I should build for my spec. As of the moment if you look at my armory, you'll see I am now stacking mastery and crit A LOT! I have a bunch of other blue gear in my bag from a few mo dungeons. DO you think for destro spec Mastery and crit is the way to go this xpac or do you think I am going down the wrong road and perhaps give me some advice on that? XD

Depends on the specific situation. If there's another bull!@#$ fight like Heroic Spine, you're going to want mastery followed by crit, with haste last. General use, however, has that order reversed.

Could be situational yes. I found myself personally doing the most dps going sac talent with stacking mastery most with haste as my second most favored stat since crit really favors cb most. I figured I would buff everything all around going other way. Never was out of top 3 dps in my raids even with legendary folks competing I could beat them. Will see once we get final stats on higher tier gear. But that was my experience toward end of cata. I personally hate having pets due to target switches...there will be that time they just are not doing anything for you...lol. Fights like ultraxion however, switch to buffed pets talent. Remember, everything will be situational come mop and you will likely be throwing talents around almost every boss encounter. Do what feels best for you imo.

I'm under the impression that Mastery is, point-for-point, the best damage increase for Destro and also the best for burst. Though I could be wrong. As for Haste and Crit, the benefit of each can be logically deduced pretty easily.

Both 1% haste and 1% Crit will increase your average Ember generation by 1% and increase your DPS by 1%. However, increasing Haste is mana-neutral, where increasing Crit is mana-positive, since you're getting more Embers out of the same number of casts and more mana regen time casting CB. Therefore, if you're risking going OOM during a fight, you need more Crit.

On the other hand, it takes less haste rating to gain 1% haste than it takes crit rating to gain 1% crit. So if you're not at risk of going OOM, stacking haste rating is the bigger DPS increase.

Question here
Anyone notice that F&B colflag is on a completely different timer then the normal conflag? Meaning that every 12 seconds, if we are ok dropping an ember, we potentially have 6 charges of backdraft?
I dunno, I have to wait till 90 to run any sort of reasonable tests, but I'm feeling like there is going to be a way to work this mechanic into a dps increase.

Check your gear and stuff, I've seen no reduction.

Could someone please clarify for me? Does "order reversed" mean we prioritize haste>crit>mastery?

Or does this mean that priorities are mastery>haste>crit?

Noxxic and Icy Veins have entirely different order of stats at this time.

Thanks :)

Seems like there is a small gap in the rotation where everything is on cooldown, I have zero backdraft charges, and my immolate is up. Should I just cast slow incinerates or just use fel flame?

Slow incin.

my incin was at 5.2k today and I was in a heroic mop dungeon, my incins would always do 30-72k damage per incin and my chaos botls were criting for 160-202k. I sadly had to reforge some of my stats into hit due to the matter I was missing my immolate a few times and to me, immolate is still important. Now I have no idea how high I will hit at 4.7k mastery. On a side note, my haste is rather low and so are my incins without BD.
