With the new changes coming to WW Monk mastery in 5.2, is the stat priority looking like Mastery > Haste > Crit?

I'd say exp>mastery>crit>haste most likely.

Yeah. On the PTR right now I got 10% expertise, and then rest mastery. Still gives me a 40% dmg increase with 10 stack TeB which is more than enough.
I doubt mastery will jump to 1st stat..imo it will either stay like it is now or it will be something like haste-mastery-crit simply because haste=energy regen=chi regen=faster TEB stack gathering..the mastery change may create an actual cap for haste (since there isny any magic number for haste atm) and then reforge all the way to mastery..but time will tell..
I expect haste to remain a priority up to a certain value. My guess is 5.5-6K because of the changes to Combo Breaker (lower proc chance). After that, Mastery will most likely compete with Crit depending on your other stats (and other factors like boss mechanics, amount of time not on the target, etc.). We will have to wait and see what the simulation results are.

@Soku: 10% expertise?? Dude, the expertise cap for Windwalkers is 7.5%.
The people who are actually doing testing on the PTR, like Eatmopie, says that haste will still have prio, but mastery moved above crit.

So its gonna be something like:

hit(7.5%) = expertise(7.5%) > haste > mastery > crit

But watch this vid, it actually explains the new tigereye brew very well:

To clear out the confusion, I(and probably Soku aswell) meant for PvP. He didn't say whether he meant PvE or PvP.
Sorry.

WW PvE.

Dunno whether to go high on mastery or keep it as is..
