[PvE Frost] Haste/Crit question.

90 Human Mage
8350
I'm currently raiding MSV and were currently raiding MSV/HoF(next week) and I know the stat priorty it Int>Hit>Haste>Crit28%>Mastery .. And I just recently got completely hit capped.. And with that (Mostly Hit/Haste gear) My crit is now suffering..

So my question is, how much Haste should i go for before worrying about Crit?

(Please Note: I'm not really gemmed in some spots or enchanted .. I just got 480 so I'll be doing ToT)

Yellow Gem:
320 Haste or 320 Crit?

Or go orange?

Thanks!

Icy-veins.com lists the currently correct gemming priorities for Frost. This topic is discussed in the following thread.

Haste, Haste/Hit, Int/Haste for gemming. This according to Blatty who advised Icy-veins.

hi, for gems priority is as follows, Red sockets straight intellect, yellow sockets use Haste/intellect orange gems, and blue sockets yous intellect/hit purple gems, and currently the hard cap on Crit rate is only 24% and that really isn't that important unless you have the gear to reach it

Somewhere around eleventy-billion.

Really, there's no point in current gear where Crit > Haste.

Haste is always better than Crit, and at higher gear levels, once you reach ~7-10% crit ; in my own personal sims, Mastery overtakes Crit.

Haste is ~.5 of the scaling of Int, so when it comes to gemming, you need to find out if haste x2 is greater than, or less than Int, and gem accordingly. (( y: Quick, r: Reckless, b:lightning)) as opposed to (( r: brilliant, y: reckless, b: veiled))

Errr no?

Crit cap is 28%, but you're right on not going crazy trying to reach it. Just when you do end up hitting it, don't go more into crit.

This as well. Crit Cap is 25% + (Level difference). Raid boss is +3, so 28%.
