    I wouldn't really qworry about weights, just get the hit/exptise caps and then get as much mastery/stam as you like.

    I personally don't believe in reforge addons, so i can't help you there. I would however highly recommend trying to achieve your hit/exp caps through your reforging and then covering the difference with gems. Why does it matter you ask? You can't reforge to Stamina. I'm not saying you should be geming full stamina as much as possible, but I recommend it at least hybrid gem sockets. And then you can alway gem Mastery as well of course.

    This statement makes no sense. Do you actually go through and do the math on every single reforge yourself rather than simply inputting the values you want into a calculator and having it do it for you?

    Using ReforgeLite is pure time-saving...it costs you nothing but a download and makes it so you don't have to waste your time doing tedious math.

    the addon is only as good as the alogorithim used in the addons. I don't have alot of confidence in askmrrobot's at the end of cata if i asked it to reforge me, it would give me a lower optimization score after than i had before with my own reforging.

    the math is not really that complicated or tedious

    It makes perfect sense. I actually enjoy cracking the "puzzle" to get as close to the hit/exp caps as possible and then the only other reforges to do are Mastery>avoidance>anything else (I could train a monkey to figure that one out) and then if possible/needed, adjusting my "dodge : parry" ratio. But yes, using an addon is time saving and I understand how most people would view doing it yourself as a waste of time. "I ain't People"
