Askmrrobot says: hit > crit > haste > mastery
I also could not find any relevant information in the stickies as it gives the stat weighs for extremely high(?) end gear(should stat weighs change that much throughout the same tier?)
this seems extremely weird since in 5.1 mastery was god.
it feels like it should be hit > mastery > crit > haste
since haste has no evident use for destro besides cast times.
Several things here.
1) Talent priority for optimal DPS for Destruction has changed from Grim of Sac to Grim of Supremacy. Since you're not using Sac anymore, Mastery loses value as you're not gaining the 25% buff to Mastery-buffed spells as before. Your pet doesn't benefit from Mastery, so it loses its value more.
2) There are no 'feels' in terms of stat weights like you say it feels like it should be something else. That's an interpretation from previous tiers which is no longer relevant. Try to think of the big picture rather than small details to get an understanding of the details.
3) Haste is used for DoT ticks (Immolate), reduces the duration of Rain of Fire, and increases your mana regeneration on top of reducing your cast time of spells.

You'll automatically get the first bonus tick, but you won't see that 2nd bonus tick without Bloodlust for quite some time. Gemming and reforging to it would be a mistake.

You said since Supremacy is yielding higher dps due to the gosac nerf we should drift away from mastery.
I'm prioritizing crit > haste > mastery - therefore dumping everything into crit then haste and reforging out of mastery into hit.
the simcraft shows everything to be ROUGHLY equal but I hate bouncing in between stats.
He's also said numerous times that secondary stats aren't a huge overall contributor to your DPS. As long as you aren't pumping them all into hit/exp your DPS will go up with your gear either way.
