Could use a hand.
Hope that is helpful.
1) Minimize your total damage taken.
This involves stacking strength (which gives parry) and dodge while being mindful of diminishing returns (See http://sacredduty.net/2012/08/27/patch-5-0-4-round-up/).
2) Smooth incoming damage as much as possible.
This involves capping hit and soft-capping expertise (7.5% of each), then stacking mastery.
I opted for #2, because compared to #1 it makes you easier to heal, gives the best overall uptime on SotR, and maximizes personal DPS.
