    Fury warrior after soft cap on hit/exp, what to do?

    So I'm currently at 12.55% hit and 26 expertise. Should I move my hit down to soft cap 8% and get str/crit/haste or should I keep on stacking hit? Which gives me more damage output? Thanks.

    Reforging: two routes possible actually, either going for hit or crit (Flurry!)
    Gems: Strength down the road, pick up socket bonus with str/hit or str/crit

    Should I reforge down the hit back to just soft cap? Is there any theorycraft on the hit/rage generation versus crit/flurry yet?

    It seems 13% or so hit is about where you want to be, with a higher rate of crit. The amount of hit you'll need is going to vary based on raid and enchants.

    Have a DK with Imp Icy touch or a I think it is Surv Hunter - you won't need as much hit to maintain the same approx level of rage generation (10% faster swings). Can't afford landslide, so have Hurricane on your weapons? A proc of that is almost as good as a Flurry proc I think (I tired testing it by watching wep speed and procs and it seems ~same, I think 3.8 goes to 2.78 with Fulry and 2.88 with a Hurricane proc?).

    Don't ever gem/gear/reforge into haste. Hit is always going to be worth more than haste if you're choosing between them.*

    (*not strictly true, after 28% haste, haste has better returns than hit for rage generation per %, so for rage generation trading 1% hit for 1% additional haste when you have at least 28% haste, will result in *slightly* better rage returns per % - but it will increase the possibility of 'dead rage zones' where you have multiple misses in a row, resulting in dead zones... and 28% is rediculously high)

    So the answer for how much hit you should have is really 'depends'. It's going to depend on your raid makeup, your enchants, and your crit (Flurry uptime).
