I've got a lot of questions about the haste vs mastery issue, and had no time to test it out properly. Now i did and the results are that you want to go for
Int > Haste (10%) > Mastery > Haste > Crit in Dungeon 5 man gear at around 460 ilvl~~
Once you hit T14HC gear, the official simcraft scalefactors involve Mastery being our best stat, better then intellect on gems.
As soon as i went under 10% haste i got lower output and above 10% haste it wanted me to reforge mastery.
Scale factors in my current gear above 10% haste is
||x 160 Gem = 580,8
||x 320 Gem = 560
||x 320 Gem = 476,8
So as you can see, intellect gems in 5-Man Dungeon gear is worth it, BUT no slots are barely pure red and you have very good socket bonuses, so aim to get gems with int + hit / mastery above 10% haste.
* Please note we are talking about differences of under 100 dps gains either way, so its just min maxing.
Reasoning behind 10% haste cap
- Corruption and unstable affliction gain an additional tick during bloodlust

Bump, updated to 10% haste cap for extra ticks during BL
Intellect > Haste 10% > Mastery > Haste > Crit
Optimized for maximizing DPS

Just wanted to say thanks for all your awesome Guides! They are very informative and always a good base to work with!
Really hope you'll do a Warlock vs. 5.0 HC-Guide like you did for DS when you got the time.
Keep up the excellent work.. i just registered to show you my gratitude ;)

Hello you're saying 10% haste it's the way to go? But only for dungeons or raids aswell?
Atm I have 4.98% haste rating, 14,14% hit rating and the rest full mastery.
So I need to reach 10% haste to maximize my dps?
Thanks for your guide ;)

this is probably only for raids, with spell haste buff and bl
in dungeons it isn't really important because bosses last 2 minutes at max

stat values switch rapidly in the early gearing process, if you want to maximize you will need to use simcraft and calculate almost everytime you get a new item. sparko and me at least were going nuts over the endless reforging

10% in raid buffs, to get extra tick during BL! Dungeon DPS is hard to compare stat values due to lack of buffs.

Thanks for your answer, but when you say 10% haste for raids, you mean 10% unbuffed or buffed?
It seems I unlearn how to play with my lock :< I always pawn on meters and world of logs and now I don't know what's up with my skill, gear, motivation...
I will let you here my parses and my armory if you have time to check and help.
World of logs: http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/r...um/damageDone/
Elegon tries was a disgrace, the try we killed boss it was /care for this s..., sorry my expression. I did some many mistakes because I was super distracted and unmotivated.
The others locks from my guild are pushing more because their gear?
You refresh your dots 1 sec before it fades, or whenever you wanna use haunt you refresh them and use Malefic Grasp to benift from it(Haunt) fulltime?
Since it's progress I' m poping Doomguard at the begin with potion, trinket,proc's active, I'm doing it right? Or should I wait to <20% to use Doomguard?
Sorry to take your time, and push always for world first I know you're capable guys! Good luck
