No matter how I reforge my character, or what gems I use, EVERY time I SimCraft my character, Haste scales higher than Mastery. So then I go enter those values into AskMrRobot for example, and it tells me to go full Haste gems and remove all my Mastery gems to meet the new scales.
Am I doing something wrong? You can't even use my current armory stats because I'm gemmed all Intellect red gems for now because I have been regemming over and over and over trying to figure out how these other Affliction locks are getting the hit cap, haste to 4717, and keeping mastery above 60%-65%. I'm ilvl 492 and feel I should be able to meet these stats easily. I'm going broke buying gems over and over so I'm looking for suggestions before I make my next move.
What's going on? Should I actually use haste gems? Follow the SimCraft weights with higher haste than mastery? Is my character just unique in the Affliction community and needs haste instead of mastery?
Why is my SimCraft saying Haste is higher when you sim my character? Am I checking a wrong option? Zygam's sims seem to never have haste higher.
My most recent sim shows:
Haste - 2.81
Mastery - 2.22
Here's my armory - but don't look at the gems and reforges right now. Just note the gear and maybe suggest what I should try. The reforges and gems are not set correctly because I have been continuously changing them to try to reach 15% hit and 4717 haste WITHOUT reforging out of mastery. I don't think it's possible. I'd have to gem high haste or reforge my mastery out and I don't see any top warlocks reforging out of mastery or gemming haste.
