I have yet to try haste stacking on my mage compared to mastery stacking. However i've seen some top mages going full out haste now like Venruki and i'm wondering if there is some math to support that haste is the way to go - damage wise?

Haste vs mastery?

Haste has never been a stat you stack because its superior "damage wise", all the math in the world won't show you the true benefits of haste. Top mages are stacking haste for other reasons...

mastery is probably better damage wise. but it doesn't matter how much dmg your spells do if you can't get them off. I think that's why some people prefer haste over mastery.

haste is pretty good right now especially due to spellsteal having no cd and low mana cost, the global reduction for dispelling someone down is fairly nice, as well as just all around faster globals are more fun (near 1s global in wrath was awesome). It's definitely not the best stat damage wise, but its other benefits are nice enough to at least make it a stat you can use for an optional style of play (shorter frost bomb cd, faster globals, more mana regen[lol mages and mana], etc)
