What is the Haste Cap?

Death Knight
I'm starting to play around with dual wield frost dps and I'm wondering what the haste cap is? I'm putting all my efforts into strength followed by haste and I just want to make sure that I'm not going paste the haste cap and missing points I could be rolling down into mastery.

Untrue, pretty sure if you get 43598345907348964570349Q0567930 Haste as soon as you attack something your white hits will crash the entire server. Totally a cap. =P
The Q made that post awesome.
Go to lvl 14-19 Deadmines

Clear to cookie

keep eating bonus food till you get 99 stacks

your attack speed will be .12

you have no GCD

you will not crash the server

however you might get a response from a GM the second u attack something regarding your "behaviour" i guess warning goes off for exploiting for them idk.

I Believe its 2500% haste which i guess is still not cap but really...

Way to be a buzz kill.
Lots of people say there is no haste cap.
But actually there is a haste cap.
It's not obtainable with current gear.And the haste rating won't be reachable with full heroic DS gear.
The lowest amount of haste rating that allows you to spam obliterate(ignoring FS,Rime HB) is the haste cap.

You start out GCD capped just by using Unholy Presence.
In all technicallity, you want to be doing the following:

Unholy Presence (Increases haste and rune regen)

Rotation:
Outbreak
Oblit x3
Raise Dead
Oblit > FS
When BP hits 4 s left, pop pillar and renew
restart rotation

Prime Stats and Caps:
1. Strength
2. Hit to Cap (8.00%)
3. Exp. to cap (26)
4. As much haste as you can, no cap
5. Mastery
