Haste paladin with a gearing question

Whats up guys, my prot pally is 510 and ive been slowly rotating haste and mastery gear into my prot set. Now, i understand that crit is horrific for us so i dont bother with any ret gear that holds crit, but ret gear that's Haste/hit or haste/exp or haste/mastery is glorious for me. however, what is actually stopping me from gearing my ret set fully with the above stat gear and then just slapping a 1hander and shield on the ret set and tanking with a haste build? i mean...could i literally be a tanking ret pally essentially? obviously this would put my parry/dodge at nearly 0, so is there a mitigation sweet spot or haste breakpoint i should be shooting for?

From my experience your avoidance is not gonna matter at all, the only real reason why you would even look at the regular tanking pieces with dodge/parry is because they can reset your avenger shield.

Theck's work on the prot pala stat prio is marvelous and he's been promoting haste builds for quite some time. My prot pally is geared towards haste itself so you could take a look at it. http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/kazzak/Solidwall/advanced as you can see I've got the head from feng heroic and it has crit on it, the only real reason is that it got so damn much haste so it's good.

There's exceptions to this gearing method ofcourse, such as the valor ring from shado-pan assault wich gives small haste but loads of crit.

But my opinion on it all is that you should rather take a crit/haste item than a dodge/parry item. Always.

never in a million years thought that i would ever apply what i learned in econometrics, but without that class i would have been lost reading that page. thats fascinating that cntrl/haste still holds a dominant lead over avoidance even after they buffed AS procs. maybe blizz should discuss their new strat to burn haste pallies with theck before they implement it in patches.

      Strangely Ironic is guild of friends and family that has been around the block a couple times. We are trying to recruit active players to form a raid team. Due to RL and the age of the game our ranks have dwindled. We are a casual guild looking to raid two nights a week from 9pm EST to 11pm EST; days of the week will change as I work shift work. If you want to join and don't want to raid we are still accepting all applicants as we want to foster an active community.
      No hot-heads please, as we are a guild who recognizes that this is just a game and we are all here to have fun and relax.
      If you are interested add reddfoxx#1496 or head to strangelyironic.enjin.com to fill out an application.

      I am following the rotation given in the class page on here. My parses are terrible for my ilvl and I don't understand what i am doing wrong and why my dps isn't higher. i havent been using firestarter because i feel like the boss is only above 90% for 5 seconds. Been using RoP for most fights because i have T21 4p.

      Hiya!
      Can someone tell me what i'm doing wrong with my frostmage, since it feels like I'm underperforming compared to other guys with the same ilvl.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/pMdCBwHG6mQb712z This is a normal pug run I did yesterday.
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/draenor/blastgasm link to my armory.
       
      Edit: Will add a bit more info now since I was in a hurry when i wrote this.
       
      I know i dont have the optimal legendaries. Only got 2 to drop on my mage. The gloves and the waist. During this normal run i probably had the wrong talent setup for some fights (arctic gale on tichondrius etc.). The question is, what can i improve? Do i need to get Better legendaries or is My rotation slightly off?

      Hi guys! 
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/chamber-of-aspects/erthol   So this is my mistweaver monk here. Now I have actually managed to start raiding and do normals every week. However I have a huuuuge problem, specifically that my hps is really, really low. A good example I think would be this Aggramar fight: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/jKcxbLXrQ9pknDva#fight=27&type=healing   You can see how the other monk had much higher hps than me. I do understand my leggos are subpar, but meh, bad luck one could say. What I don't understand is what I'm doing wrong. I try to use renewing mist on cd, use Vivify. I know I haven't used Effuse too much, but that's because I was trying out fistweawing. Anyways, all my other logs are basically the same. I have way too high overhealing as well. Any help would be great, because I'm lost, I love the monk, I love the style, but somehow can't get it to work as I would like it to. Please help meeeeee! Thanks for the feedback.

      Anybody got any experience/tips or tactics they use as a fire mage ( or other specs that have any knowledge that may be able to apply in generality )
