Base unbuffed stats:
Base dodge: 12.72
Armor in bear: 85,100
The stat priority i was pointed to was:
Stamina >= Agility > Melee Hit (7.5%) = Expertise (7.5%) > Crit >= Haste > Mastery > Dodge
On most bosses, the healers have been telling me i get pounded on way more than the pally. I have reforged mostly into mostly mastery and into crit. I am gemmed mostly agility and mastery gems. I have seen a few bear tanks gem all crit, but I thought that was a bit extreme. I understand the key is keeping Savage Defense up, and right now without the help of Enrage, i try to keep bleeds on as many targets as possible and i mangle every time its up, and i have about 3-4 seconds between each time SD wears off and when i am able to press SD again, leaving me with a lowly 12% dodge.. Not sure if my rage gen is too slow and i need to fix my stats? or if thats by design, or if bears are not in a great spot right now?
Also, I've been trying to see what the new Maul does with Tooth and Nail, but that seems to detract away from the rage i need to maintain SD as well so I think it's not worth using, at least situationally.. Maybe i just need to L2P. Any advice appreciated. =)
