25% haste breakpoint in 5.2 (Shadow PvP)

Priest
Has anyone theorycrafted yet to work out if the 25% haste breakpoint is achievable in 5.2? (Without gemming for haste and for non-goblins)
Talbadar has like over 8200 haste rating on the ptr. I don't really know if he's gemmed any haste though

That's a good way to determine the matter.

We can view live characters on battlenet to see gear and stats.

Is there a way I can view the character page of Talbadar or other spriests on the PTR? (Note: I am not on the PTR)
Another approach:

Have any spriests on the PTR equiped full Tyr gear and worked out if the 25% haste breakpoint is achievable without gemming?

Helm.. 553
Shoulders... 623
Chest... 947.
3505.

Neck.. 474
cloak.. 388
Arms... 388
Waist 517
Boots 552

Yes, it is achievable without gemming.

I believe it will require mostly Tyrannical Elite gear however, so I don't think anybody will be seeing it in the near future.
Without gemming and without tyrannical elite, no. You will have at most 7300 haste, and that's being generous (and having all tyranical normal gear with haste on EVERY SINGLE piece).

Gemming or with elite gear seems pretty doable.
