Again, pedantry over remedial and insignificant gains and losses.
Hah, I missed this argument when it was going on but I just thought I should say...
Did you really just spend all that time trying to justify going that far over the hit cap?
And you accuse me of pedantry?
Isn't irony delicious. ;)

Bam. Right here we have the clearest example of just how bad your reading comprehension actually is.
Here's the original claim, Hiroran:
Hakuren:MrRobot seems to almost always value mastery over haste for arcane. And many people seem to think Noxxic is trash.
15%(+-.5) hit cap is something both should be recommending, though.
The claim is that two programs will tell you something within this range. Whether I find it acceptable or not is another story and is actually irrelevant to the topic. Throughout this topic, my gear has changed. I've gone from AMR telling me to go over hit cap by .3% or under it by .4%.
Like I said: the programs take approximately 72 gear combinations for each slot into consideration for their 'upgrade' system. It is more than likely that any given random mage (especially those gearing up) will go to AMR and find that, due to the mage's current gear restraints, that he will only be able to choose a range within (14.5%,15.5%).
What you claim is that AMR's calculations are so precise that you will never find a gear combination where you cannot reforge, regem, or reenchant to be under 15.5% (and, in fact, 15% by your claim). Not only do you not understand how AMR's program is constructed, but you also claim to be superior to the program (you know, the one programmed to optimize) and can account for all of those possibilities.
Again, it's pretty simple: AMR and other programs will spit out a range of 14.5%-15.5% for any given mage. Mages that are just gearing up are especially prone to the outlier values of 14.5% and 15.5%. But saying these outlier values do not exist...well, like I said: pick another major. You're bound to get someone killed.
