Just been told that from now on, Haste is the worst stat for ALL healer classes?

Pretty much all in the topic,

I normally check all the websites for my stat priorities, but have just been informed in game that you should have NO haste on ANY healer specs now.

When did that change?
Is it correct?
Why are the websites not up to date?

Sort of making this topic to warn other healers incase this is correct and they've been trying to get a bit of haste on their gear too.

Really? I've been trying to get a load of Haste because my casting feels slower than ever. >_>

Though I've always felt like WoW's tooltips are seriously off. Says my Holy Light casts in 2.05s and I swear to god I've timed it as being just a bit over 3 instead. Every time. >>

I'd really like to know as well, as I've been reforging a bit of my crit for haste, but if haste is a bad stat to have, I'm going to go ahead and reforge back for crit.

Well Icy-Veins is still telling me I should have some Haste,
hence why I was looking for others' feedback as I really have no clue now on what I should be reforging for. >.<

And if ALL healer stat priorities have changed for one stat,
surely other dps and tank specs have changed too?

I don't understand how suddenly they all like a bit of haste, then you should have none.
Hoping some warcraft stat-refroging fanatic is going to come along and make sense of this all. :/

I only play holy paladin so can't speak for the others but the reasoning is because the current gear doesn't give enough spirit to be mana efficient in raids hence the gemming of spirit. increasing haste makes your mana pool go out faster, with the lack of regen and mana cap of 300k, mastery is more mana efficient for the start of expansion.

Kaitou,

I've also noticed a lack of gear ready with Spirit for Holy Paladins, but I've found once reforged for some spirit, negating critical and balancing haste and mastery, I haven't had a mana issues at crucial times.
For the other healing specs though, I've seen plenty of gear drop ready to go with Spirit, so I think Paladins are just being tested there as they know we're up to it. :P

But yea, I understand what you mean for the Paladin side to cut down on haste and up the Mastery and Critical - but that doesn't explain why apparently ALL healer classes should botch Haste altogether? :/

Spirit > Haste (Breakpoint) > Intellect > Mastery > Crit

not sure how reliable...

That's what I mean guys,

2 of the top sites for WoW guides,
although they say a different priority, they BOTH say to include haste and as quite a high priority.

If Haste has been scrapped from All the healing specs, I can't see 2 of the top sites missing out on it?
