Stop taking our tanking gear, then.

Also, there are some DPS items which are strongly suited for tanking now.

Oh, also. As a general rule of thumb..

These are not the tanks you are looking for.

No because your Horde I don't have a Horde toon but you probably have took some off spec gear from a healer or dps that needed it for main spec and that is not cool.

Or possibly your tank is a main spec DPS who que'd as either role and ended up tanking because you were unwilling to tank or don't have the skills to tank.

Just a thought.

I'm curious.

If something is hit/mastery or expertise/mastery, is a tank item, or a DPS item, in your eyes?

Pretty sure I didn't single you out there Naridios. I said it as a broad statement about some of the dps I've been grouped with. This is an argument that has been going on since TBC, it just seems back then the community was a little more thoughtful, or maybe it was because you were grouped with people on your realm only and things like that pretty much had you blacklisted...but I digress.

As a tank that sat through multiple Coren queues as a DPS to get the damned Crit trinket, this assumption is bloody insulting.

It helps with threat gen and tanks who like big numbers. Expertise & hit are in if you are asking.

Thank god hunters don't use staves anymore, now there is at least one piece of tank gear that I don't have to roll against dps for :D Also, even in MoP there is still pretty much no such thing as dedicated "tanking" leather - even guardian tier stuff only has one piece with dodge - so I'm gonna roll against dps rogues and monks, and they can just deal.

Don't DPS Monks also get to use staves?

Every time I miss with my shor, I take 60% more damage. Threat and big numbers are really secondary.

Didn't they change it during the Beta so that the damage reduction happens regardless of whether or not you hit? Granted, Hit and Expertise are still needed for HoPo generators, but you are only talking about the finishers here.
