5.3 (Holly Pally) Haste or Mastery?

I've been recently thinking about the changes 5.3 has brought to healing for Holy Pally's, more specifically the nerf to there Mastery(Illuminated healing). While it is still extremely useful I do wonder if haste might now be the better option for multiple reasons: With the recent extensive use of Eternal flame and less LoD wouldn't stacking haste essentially only increase Eternal flames usefulness? Haste would increase the number of ticks from eternal flame and increase the number of eternal flames you have on different players(more casts of holy radiance / divine light would increase the amount of holy power generated). Stacking haste would also lower the CD on our crusader strike allowing us to use it more frequently to generate holy power. Lastly stacking haste would increase our melee attack speed. While this isn't a huge gain it would increase the amount of mana gained during a fight while in melee with the boss. The nerf to Holy Pally's mastery seemed to be much more then just 2%, and while it didn't render it useless It makes me wonder if it tipped the scale in favor of haste over mastery. Feel free to respond and even correct anything I might have misunderstood. Thanks:)

Well, I ain't no theory crafter or raider in Heroic ToT Content... or a player who has done many Challenge modes and got it made, but the 2% nerf on mastery does make it a lesser needed stat. Now compared to Haste, or haste caps persay on speeding your spells up to a likable ceiling to where you can perform an AoE healing rotation like say...

HS (Holy Shock), LoD (Light of Dawn), HR (Holy Radiance), LoD, HR, HS (Daybreak x2) - Repeat starting with LoD.

While I bet this rotation isn't too optimal, it has been getting the job done for things like Megara and other fights when stacking for AoE, and I notice that I needed to reforge into a little more haste to speed up my HR's.

So getting to the basis of the question on if Mastery is being beat out by Haste? No, Mastery definitely is the bread and butter of a Holy Paladin when it does 30% of the work. However setting priority to a set haste to your liking... that is something worth looking into or trying out in your next raid.

I raid 25 man heroic content and hold paladins still do really well with mastery. It puts them more in line with the other healers.

Haste may be a good option for a 10 man guild as it allows the paladin to have more control.

But you also need to be aware that mastery is more HPM than haste by a good margin. Haste should only be used if you can properly manage your mana.

      What stat %s should we aim for?

      Hi guys,

      I need some pro help to learn to heal properly with my druid.
      I started to play 3 months ago and I've tried to follow build, tips, place proper hots but I always get a very low efficiency index in raid logs with my guild (and with other people).
      My ilvl is currently 906, I have two legendaries, and my artifact is at max level. I do have two other legendaries in my bags: Prydaz and Xoni's. Below are my current stats:
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/es-es/character/dun-modr/elpocimas
      Here are a couple of logs of this week raids:
      ToS nm (only 5 bosses): https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/DWz34VPQ9aHtXp6C
      Another ToS nm (except KJ): https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/dXFnKbqAk43cahxr
      I think my HPS are rather lacking in comparison to other healers, even though I am not that far away gear-wise. It's so frustrating to see 11-20% of efficiency :(
      I'd appreciate any constructive opinion you have and thanks in advance.
      Regards

      I have the pants, gloves, bloodlust helm, chain heal ring and trinket.   The guide says pants and trinket.  I can't help but think the gloves are too good to let go.  I wish there was a way to sim for healers.  I would just like some of your thoughts and opinions on what legos you all would use.  Thanks!

      Hi all,
      I am new to healing and playing a shaman. I pretty much only ever played a rogue Wrath-Cata, and have recently come back as a Resto Shaman in Legion. I am doing my best to configure everything correctly but I think that I am missing some stuff. My logs show that I am under preforming (bottom 35% of resto shams in my ilvl range). I am looking for any sort of constructive criticism and advice that anyone may have.
      I currently sit at 45 artifact traits, 46.2k intel, 35% crit, 12% haste, and 86% mastery.
      Talents: 
      If possible I would love to not have to use CBT. If it's the best though, it's the best.
