Secondary stats>int.

You hit the 14873 haste breakpoint which is great. How you balance mastery and crit seems to be dependent on which talents you choose. You should check out the shadow guide for more info. In general MF:I benefits more from mastery and FDCL benefits from crit. Personally I don't like to run so little crit since mastery and crit have some synergy. But others would disagree. YMMV.

Another suggestion- if you can do so and stay at hit cap run expertise gems in your red sockets. Expertise=hit. Will allow you to stack more mastery and crit

thnx for checking me out; <3

I used to stack crit after the 14305 haste cap but read that i should be stacking mastery with the UVLS which does seem to be working for me in lfr, the real test will be when i do garrosh tonight, i got the feeling im gonna miss the crit killing adds

I like your user name.

Going mastery with the UVLS is a good choice, since crit gets devalued due to the proc's strength. Otherwise, I also agree that not stacking mastery and ignoring crit is good. Sure MF:I benefits from mastery, but all spells benefit from crit, and crit is a better "buy" than mastery, which is why it's always been better than mastery for us. People seem to think that MF:I benefits from mastery way more than from crit, and that's just not true.
