Overall you look fine.

Don't worry about Exp. I actually don't advocate stacking Exp at all in that its a fairly poor stat for both damage reduction and damage smoothing. Since you're hit capped, Mastery is better in both regards, and in fact Haste is arguably superior to Exp. Being at 15% Exp vs 0% Exp is basically 2 missed CS's per minute. Better to put those points into Mastery, an if that's not an option, either Haste or STR.


This. I don't get parried THAT often, even with only 8ish %.

Once you have 7.5% hit and some reasonable amount of exp (probably around 7-8%, there's no soft cutoff anymore), then Mastery gives you better returns. I've wanted to experiment with haste, but since ret is my off-off-spec, I don't have enough haste gear to try it out.

Just turned 85 with this Tankadin. I have a question about stats. Two different sites have tgwo differing opinions. Noxxic says: stamina, expertise and hit to 7.5% each, then matery, parry , dodge with parry being 2x dodge.

Now maxdps says:Mastery, parry = dodge, strength, expertise , hit.

Is there a consensus amongst you as to the stat priorities????

Thanks in advance for you help

Expertise is superior to hit.
And WTH at your haste advise? Seriously.

Well, he's a paladin, not a warrior. Haste is pretty much valueless for Warriors right now (just like Crit is for Paladins), but its actually not bad for Paladins. Exp is worth roughly 60% as much as Hit right now (for prot pallies) because CS/HotR can be parried/dodged as well as missed, but J can only miss making Exp useless for it.

Btw, Exp no longer cuts down both Parry and Dodge at the same time if that's what you were thinking.

Stop.

Giving.

Wrong.

Advice.

You.

Haven't.

RESEARCHED.

HASTE IS FINE WITH THE CHANGES TO CRUSADER STRIKE/HOTR ETC. IT IS SLIGHTLY BELOW EXPERTISE IN OVERALL AM UPTIME.

Expertise is LESS VALUABLE than hit in a MoP environment.

Do not give advice if you HAVE NOT researched it.

PLEASE.
