Quick response: go to, and use the gear optimizer. Change the modifier to the haste/control dropdown and select Optimize. It'll show you where adjustments can be made. I'd toggle "enforce hit and expertise caps" in the options area.

Getting to 15% expertise (maintaining 7.5% hit) is a bigger priority for a control strategy than stacking haste or mastery. At your gear level (same as mine), that will take most of your reforges, so that the mastery vs haste issue is rather secondary.

I am leery to stack more haste now with GCs tweet that he does not want us to do that and will make it some adjustment to try to change that in 5.2. But if you were to do it, I guess you would have to (a) gem haste rather than stamina (adjust the stamina weight in AMR down for that); (b) go hunting for ret gear with haste on it.

You could armory Fetzie, one of our regular posters, for an example of haste stacking.

15% Expertise and 7.5% hit are imperative. Don't even think about anything until you get those. There is little to no point stacking the haste if you aren't going to hit every time.

My armory is in the signature.
