Any PVPers stacking PVP power+haste/Strength?

Paladin
Anyone?
No one higher than 1200 stacks PvP power gems.
Well my 3's and RBG rating are over 1200 - I'm stacking power. *drops mic and walks away*
So you know resil is better, but you don't want to fix what you're doing?
Amu you can't even 1v1 a dk, brah
BURN!

Damn. In my defense, he's the only DK I haven't run through - he's good.
Avarice, your cloak. :P
I just tested running full haste in the PTR 19.x% makes the GCD on Judgement about 4 seconds. So, it does help, and you already have 60% PVP power with full gear anyhow, but that's a lot of gemming for marginal improvement....

I was gemmed resil > str = haste before.

Had 66% resil.

I regemmed hard PvP power. I lost 4% resil and gained 12% pvp power.

Str > PvP power at almost a 2:1 ratio though (was an AJ thread on this awhile back for Int, think it was proven for all 3 primaries to be a 2:1 valuation vs PvP power).

Haste is still valuable regardless of what primary stat you choose to gem for.
I've gemmed for power and I really enjoy the effect it has. Then again I'm only really causal and can't really comment on high end comp.
Pretty sure DKs and Paladins SHOULD gem the same thing in PvP gear.

Strength/Resilience = red
Resilience = yellow
PvP power/Resilience = blue

Haste might be more attractive for Paladins with the 65% innate resilience in 5.3, but it depends on how hard resilience diminishes in the patch.
Nice - thanks for the advice, would you suggest mixing primary stats + pvp power for 5.2/3? as long as resil is above lets say...63-64%?
stacking resil in BGS are so boring, I go full pvp power and when I decide to do Arenas I switch into mostly resil gems

Pretty much.
Haste does look tempting, but we might need to go PvP to offset the Battle Fatigue buff.
