Heya, so on eu I've seen the top ranked pally mostly reforging for haste, what's the point of that?

EF haste breakpoints, faster casts.

I've been just trying it with selfless healer just to maximize holy power generation (shorter cd on judgment[4.9 seconds atm])... works well when games don't last long and you need the big instant divine/flash of lights and the availability of getting 3 holy power in a matter of seconds.

edit... mind you I don't know jimjim's reasoning behind it, as i'm not him (if by "top ranked eu pally" you mean him)

Ret stats at this point seem to be preference.  The reason they are going haste is for shorter cd's and faster GCD but I don't think straight haste is the best choice to reforge to right now.

Looking at high rated rets (U.S), for example Vanguards and Hangaku.  It seems they are reforging to Crit and Haste.  Bringing them both to around 21-23%.  I don't know if that is the most efficient choice, but secondary stats have never really made a huge difference in ret damage.

I forgot to specify holy actually. It really is all downhill after playing TSG. Been playing around with haste past few hours, it's different.

I feel like maybe it allows me to be more aggressive, I can slightly faster denounce all the pressure away and then sling out quick but weak heals. I find running haste makes cleaves harder to deal with, perhaps I'm off my game today.

I disagree, holy paladin heals in full prideful is very strong, with reaching 50% baseline crit on Holy Shock, in full haste, you can shit out all of your heals quicker than a free crack giveaway (Also giving you more freedom to try and push in and play more offensively).
