Edit: your question isn't really "how to get more haste" but rather "how do I play my class". Those websites will help you.
The most obvious answer is your gemming, OP; you're still gemming a strength bias where you should likely be gemming a haste bias. You're reforging seems like it may be off, too; get ReforgeLite and use SimCraft to find your personal stat weights. Take the weights fro SimC, plug them into RfL, click a couple of buttons, and you should be perfectly forged.
Only other likely conclusion is poor handling of your rotation, if fixing your gear doesn't solve the discrepancy.
from the noxxic website:
"DPS values are calculated using SimulationCraft 510-9 with the Noxxic recommended talents and rotations. All simulations are conducted using ilvl 496 gear with all raid buffs and debuffs.
These results are updated with each SimulationCraft release. Please note that these numbers reflect theoretical maximum DPS and not the DPS you are likely to see in-game. Player skill, gear, latency, and many other factors may change these estimates, but they are still useful in evaluating DPS across specs and classes."
And anyone who thinks that it makes that much of a difference is also an elitist... not in the good sense of the word either.
If you're just going to follow a blanket prescription for your spec without knowing the reasoning behind it, you're ignorant and foolish.

The elitist jerks community is made up of some of the nicest people in the game, as far as my experience goes.
OP, haste is better than mastery/crit because it reduces the GCD on your HP generating spells, resulting in more TV and more Inq. which reuslts more damge.
01/20/2013 09:08 PMPosted by GrôgnárdFrankly, I wouldn't trust either of those sites; neither really gives reasoning as to why they recommend the things that they do. Elitist Jerks' Ret thread would be a far better resource with which to familiarize yourself.
Good man. I'm proud of you.
01/20/2013 09:37 PMPosted by GrôgnárdAnd you fail to see the point. Blindly following one websites recommendations without knowing why is folly; you're just setting yourself up for failure. The "standard" build is only good on certain fights
Blindly? I know I've never once had to post on the forums or trade asking for help with info about my class, and I have no problem topping dps in the majority of groups I join on any number of my toons. So to say that I blindly follow is inaccurate. Honestly it sounds to me as if you are blindly following. Can you honestly give a good reason as to why you prefer elitist jerks? Or could it be that the only reason you do so is because latching onto a sight just because it is the oldest and most commonly recommended source comforts you?
Haste IS our best secondary stat, but a few percent haste isn't going to make more than a few percent difference in DPS. If you're looking at a larger gap than that, the most likely explanation is that you have room to improve as a player. In that case, your best course of action is research and practice.
Also, I simmed your armory profile, and it appears that haste gemming is very slightly favorable. I do mean "very slightly"; the margin by which haste is favorable is smaller than the margin of error on stat weights, even at 50k iterations. So even if you switch to haste gemming, you're going to see a very marginal DPS increase from it, at best.

That's not really good advice either. High-end players may change their gear strategy to strange things to test them out, and especially this late in the tier it's very likely that you'll see the top players doing weird things for fun now that content has been on farm for so long.
