Destro Stat Priority

So,
Icyveins is saying that Critical Strike is the top priority for destro, and Mr Robot says it's haste...

Who's right ?
I'm still unsure as to what I must reforge.

Thanks :)

Why is MisterRobot insisting so bad to reforge haste ?

It's kinda confusing.

It is all situational. To really tell your stat priorities you need to sim your character. There are certain amounts of haste you reach before other stats pull ahead.

One must ask PVP or PVE? I'm guessing PVE, but i'm been fooled before.

Simcraft says in my gear, that it's haste>mastery>crit

Dummies say the same thing testing crit vs haste reforge.

This is for Destro

Crit mastery haste


Wrong,

Its Int > Hit to cap > Crit > Haste > Mastery

Haste is less useful than it was in Cata, but it's still useful now. It doesn't increase Conflagrate damage now that it's not tied to Immolate, but it increases our cast time and our MP5, which means we can use more ember-generating spells before going OOM.

That being said, Crit is stronger because it a) increases the damage of Chaos Bolt, and b) when Incinerate, Immolate, or Fel Flame crit, we generate 0.2 of an ember, rather than 0.1, which means we get embers faster.

Personally I think Crit > Haste > Mastery works best, but apparently all 3 stats are relatively close to each other this expansion, so it may come down to fight mechanics or even player preference.

For Destros Locks is there a cap for mastery. I have 68% so is that to much?

mastery doesn't cap but you will want to sim your character to see what stats you should be going for. That being said if you want to go all mastery, there is no limit.

Just chiming in to say, I'm jealous that you managed to get Headmaster's Will to not only drop but win it. :P

I installed simcraft and it's saying (for me):
Ranking: Int > SP > Hit > Crit = Haste > Mastery

TBH, a destro lock that goes haste and a destro lock that goes crit will have around the same dps.

It does seem like crit is slightly better then haste IMO

I'd say 50-60% mastery, 20% crit, and the rest haste. You really don't need THAT much crit for PvP.. As Dark Soul: Instability will really boost your damage when you need to deal intense DPS.

Mastery is by far #1, all you have to do is read the description for that one. Mastery in destro increases your effects using embers... That's key.
