02/08/2011 5:17 PMHP is a combo-point system, so you'd all better start lobbying for missed Death Strikes to heal the DK, or for Rogues and Druids to start getting combo points from misses.

1) Rogues typically not only max yellow hit, but also aim for Spell hit.
2) On top of that, our CP generators aren't on a 3 sec CD,
3) plus the "mana" spent to generate a CP is 80% refunded.
The only real loss in a Rogue rotation of a missed/dodged/parried CP generator is the loss of 1 GCD. Palis lose mana, a GCD, an additional 3 seconds (if not more) building a 3 point HoPo finisher.
Blizzard is also blatantly overlooking the fact that PARRIES are a HUGE deal for Prot Palis as they are standing in front of the mob.
BTW -- That blues response -- "Warriors miss Shield Slam." Yeah -- Palis miss Crusader Strike. No one was complaining about that. The point was, it used to generate 1 HoPo. Now it doesn't.
Someone above pointed out the problem exactly -- As the expansion progresses, Palis will need to carry much more HIT and EXPERTISE than other tank classes because of this simple oversight. Meaning, itemization points that other tanks are putting into Dodge, Parry, and Mastery are being spent on "non-tanking" abilities.
If you FIX IT NOW -- you won't have problems in the future.
