As far as I know in PvE: Int > Mastery => Haste > Multi = Crit > Vers

But in PvP I tend to lean towards Haste to do the environment around it (dispels, CC, interrupts, training, etc). Don't forget that Haste stats are increased by 5% due to Affliction bonus.

Worth mentioning that haste means faster corruptions = more NF procs = more SS, and that reduces GCD = moar dots and warlock curses. While mastery increases dot ticks, but doesn't benefit in any other way other than raw damage.

This spot on,

Highlighted what I feel is most important part.  Any improvement to soulburn:haunt uptime is way more than a few points of additional mastery can manage.

Basically crit/versatility is shit.  For pvp multi-strike is doing quite well so I would rank it:

As far as I know in PvE: Int > Haste >= Mastery  >>>>  Vers = Multi > crit

This simply isn't true though, go look at the WoW forums, someone did the math on the average rating of every spec. The "fotm" rerollers aren't doing as well as people put on, with rets actually being one of the lowest rated specs while things like feral and affliction are much higher.

Most people who "fotm" reroll are bad players who like to get their free 2200 every season. They usually have no awareness or arena intuition, but just pick a class that is easy to train stuff into the ground. The problem comes from when that is actually the "high rated" strat (AKA warriors in s12, rogues s11, etc). The people who fotm reroll ret won't do very well since, regardless of what people say, it actually takes some awareness and timing to play correctly.

I think thats why ferals are getting higher rated at the moment overall, because you can basically spend the entire game training with every cd up and still win, while its harder to do that as ret.

Mind giving me that wow forum's link?  I think the representation on arenamate is pretty clear and I'm not sure how someone could fancy up the numbers/parameters to get a different conclusion.  If I go by your fotm cut-off of 2.2k (~1,300 players) there are twice as many rets as any other melee, even ferals.  I would like to disclose that I have zero bias since I do not actually play, I haven't bothered to pick up WOD but I still like to check in to see the trends/game progress.  Warlocks are also doing a lot better than people expected.  What comps are they running?

I goofed around with this chart a bit more this morning.  Numbers seem to be getting worse day by day.  I decided to use 2k 3s as a cut-off for "casual arena" players, a demographic that blizz might actually pay attention to (roughly 4,500 players).

It would be really interesting to keep track of these numbers week by week to see the "trends" in specs as people reroll FOTM.

I'll post current Dec 10th numbers:

I have no idea what kind of voodoo magic Vanguards is on about, I messed with arenamate for 30 min just not and couldn't come up with a scenario where rets weren't clearly the #1 dps spec.

I sorted spec distribution ranks for 2k, 2.1k, 2.2k, 2.3k, 2.4k, and 2.5k scenarios.

Can you imagine what the ladders would look like if you gave those retards that fotm reroll a month to catch up?

I bet a lot of rerollers listened to Beta talk and leveled a dk/warrior/feral.  Just give them 3-4 weeks.  Watch.  You will have s5 dk type numbers.
