ilvl358 Protection War Tank LF Guild
Best of luck, welcome back.

Yeah, you're fine. The progression path would have been 353 heroics(ZA/ZG) to 378 heroics (HoT) so an ilvl of 358 should be fine.
Also you might want to look at what Mr. Robot says for your toon. It should save you some headaches and make things go smoother.
It can be helpful for DPS, but for tanks and healers it gives some pretty dodgey advice.
The warrior forums have a great Prot guide which will help you with stat priorities, among other things, located here:
i.e. what stat weights are best for you current set up or what you want to maximize.
You get out what you put in.
Obviously with any class you should read the Info threads on what you need to do but once you know that, Mr. Robot makes it simple as all you have to do is load in your info.
edit: i probably should not have assumed he had read the info threads :)
As for AskMrRobot, I wouldn't use it.
edit: don't be afraid of asking good players in your realm for pointers, there aren't many left.
Yes you should know what your stat weights are, what the latest theory crafting for your class is and what not but the mathematical background that is required to get the best out of reforging is not something that the majority of people have or are interested in learning.
Most people will not look at the fact that if they reforge 100 of stat X off of item A into stat Y then reforge 80 of stat Z on item B into stat X they gain a better overall benefit than if they just went item A has this stat that is good for me so i will just reforge the stat on item B.
So to plug in numbers assume the situation is in regards to hit cap but they want to get the most out of mastery:
if they were to reforge 100 Hit, which is an good stat, into 100 mastery, which is a great stat, on item A. Then on item B they could reforge 80 crit into 80 hit. By doing this they remain hit capped and gain 100 mastery.
If they did not see this connection, which I don't think most people would (my opinion), they would just go okay, I'm hit capped so I don't need to reforge anything to hit so my next best stat is mastery. Item B has crit which is my worst stat so I will reforge that 80 crit into 80 mastery. Here they are losing out on 20 mastery that they would have gained in the first scenario.
Furthermore Mr. Robot pulls its metrics from Elitist Jerks, Tank Spot, the WoW forums, and various other theory crafting sites to get the most accurate opinion on what is best setup in regards to glyph, enchants, gear, and reforging for whichever class is chosen. This is done for what ever gear level the particular person is at, i.e. T13 heroics, T13 normal, T13 LFR, HoT heroics, and so on. They also provide presets for most of the popular theory crafting mindsets. i.e. Stam > avoidence, throughput > output, and so on.
Yes you should know the ideas behind the math but actually doing the math is hard for many people. If you want to be a raider you SHOULD be min/maxing and Mr. Robot allows even the most mathematically inept to accomplish this. Again it comes down to learning to use the tool to get the best out of it. Just like a computer, Mr. Robot is only as smart as the user.

He's not making a complete retard out of himself, no reason to treat him as one.
05/09/2012 02:51 AMPosted by TevonIdk what expansion you're playing but stam hasn't been better than avoidance since early T11.
Maybe I'm missing some sarcasm here, but stamina is indeed better than avoidance for almost every fight, Warmaster and Hagara being obvious exceptions, and maybe spine if you're offtanking.
