Is it true that crit is useless for elemental? The priority I've been lead I believe for gems and reforging is hit>int> haste> crit > mastery

hit>int>haste until you're comfortable>mastery>crit, in most scenarios. People typically forge for about 35% haste (including Ancestral Swiftness).

And no, crit isn't useless...it just isn't as good as the other two stats.

Like 50% of your total damage is already auto crit.

Lava surge is not "flame shock crits" its only ticks

Haste > Crit > Mastery if you're using Ele blast.
Haste > Mastery > Crit for Unleashed Fury.

Actually it's spirit (spirit is hit)>haste>mastery>crit.  Crit is nearly useless because majority of your damage is a guaranteed critical strike (Lava Burst).  Although with unleashed fury up lightning bolts can crit harder than lava burst.

So I never used unleashed fury until last night. I don't think I'll ever go back to elemental blast.
