Suggesting Noxxic when someone says they've done what AMR suggested is like suggesting someone uses gasoline when their house is on fire.

@OP: I wouldn't gem nearly that much stamina. Mastery's still an awesome stat, and you should still be gemming for that. Try match socket bonuses though, free stats are awesome and there aren't any really bad stats (Except crit/haste) for prot warriors.

Look, it's another LFR hero with stam gems who spends the entire run with 100 rage.

You don't get avoidance this expansion, sorry.

LFR heroes don't come to the forums to improve themselves.

People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. It's pretty cool that you're stacking haste before you hit 15% expertise, by the way.

Leave the guy alone. He's here to get better. You could do with some of that yourself.

This.

He's asking for advice. Help him, don't tell him he's garbage. We're not EJ. We're the freaking tank board. If you can't come here for help, where can you go?

Just remember, being willing to ask for, and to listen to, advice makes you better than half the other players out there.

I switched to default mrrobot optimization after being sick and tired of the magic heavy fights where my mastery heavy mitigation is pointless.

My best advice, which I think all the theorycrafting boils down to, find a good balance between hit/exp, stamina, and mastery. Otherwise maintain two sets of gear for magic or physical damage.

The only fight I've been in which is almost all physical damage is the Spiritbinder. When you're tanking him trying to absorb his shadow attacks is pointless as they cannot be absorbed. Keep your shield up, and hope your mastery is high enough to keep the crit blocks up. When you're not tanking him switch to barrier to minimize voodoo doll damage.

Those 2 white hits and 1 SotR that got parried during an 8 minute boss kill really made the encounter difficult. Theorycraft all you want, I'll go by actual log data.

The goal of hit/exp capping is to prevent the worst possible scenario from happening which would be a string of missed resource generators thus prolonging your time without AM.

Just because it hasn't happened to you yet doesn't mean it won't or hasn't happened to someone else.

I don't think you understand the purpose of haste gearing, or hitting hit/expertise thresholds.

Call no one bad when you're not maximizing yourself.

I fully understand it, and it has no affect on my casual 25 man raiding guild. I am sorry that it affects your forum enjoyment however.

Haste gearing is to increase Holy Power generation, the only other purpose is a DPS increase.
Both of those happen when soft-capped, for myself, and the thousands of other paladins who stopped at the soft cap.

Last week I had 2 parries of HoPo builders in MV, across all bosses. My "string" of misses leading to a wipe just isn't coming. Math says I should be parried far more often, but I haven't been, so I have stayed away from hard capping expertise, because me, and my guild don't need it.

What my casual guild does need, is a bit more DPS to help carry our sub-50k folks, if I can help with that a bit, that's a good thing, as long as I don't present a risk to the raid, which I haven't so far. This may change as we move into heroic modes, I'll be sure to keep you updated.

Not sure you understand statistics or Murphy's Law.

Funny. On 11/20 you had 12 CS parries and 2 HoTR parries.

I hear prior expansions are relevant when discussing varied stat weights and their effects.

Your gearing itself I don't care about.

The fact that you berate other people when you yourself are suboptimal (read: doing it wrong), however, I do care about.

It's a good thing that this expansion has seen a complete revamp of the way tanks tank, huh?
