Why is RAWR telling me to stack so much haste as Fire?

So I've been running RAWR on all it's default settings as Fire and it keeps having me reforge to about 2800ish haste rating on my mage, I armory every top mage out there and they're going for 1400-1800 haste ratings for their setups. I really don't understand I'm sitting at about the same gear level as many of these mages and I just don't understand what settings in RAWR are causing this to happen and why it's valuing Haste so high or why it's going for this breakpoint. If the haste breakpoint was so vaulable why wouldn't i see ANY other top fire mages going for it??

 

Gear level is 4 pc tier 12 heroic and 4 pc tier 13(1 LFR piece) goblin mage with staff, my armory is showing what RAWR is telling me to do with default setting on the latest update.

As goblin you get an extra tick of LB and Pyro at that point as far as I know. As for why you don't see more people going for haste, it's kind of topic for debate currently. Here's some posts where I've posted my thoughts on the topic:
