Focus. Haste is a waste of soulshots.

Yep. Not only do you get a higher damage output from focus, you save shots in doing so.... go for focus.

Focus is generally better for you. Though for some classes/setups haste is better.

If your grinding without spamming shots....Focus is still better.

This is especially true if you get some buffs. Every crit is a 100% damage increase per swing. Haste is what 6% increase in speed? This is like a 1-2 swing difference overtime. Barely noticable. But get a streak of crits and the boost is very noticable. As it takes more hits to kill mobs, haste starts to make a bit more of a difference. But it's still less than Focus. Unless....the weapon is a blunt. In which case the crit chance is so low anyway, that right off Haste is better overtime. (Even buffed.)

Blunts - Haste is good.
Everything else - Focus is way better.

Focus is better.... but.... your cubics do trigger on hits. So the more you hit, the more your cubics trigger (Except for healing cubic... which SKs dont have anyways).

Still... I'd go focus though.

very possible that haste could give better DPS than focus but it would do so at the cost of ss
focus is the safer bet

I think it's 4% speed increase for C grade?
Go Focus.
