Really, they just don't get it :
Bracers/Shoulders/Mace from 1st boss for tanks, all Dodge & Parry again. :(
The DPS gear though has some nice pieces :
And these Tank boots aren't so bad :
Prot even gets 1 piece of Parry/Haste.
Double avoidance pieces are dumb, honestly. Blizzard knows nobody likes them, and knows that people will take something that's avoidance/X.. so why do they keep making double avoidance? It's not magically going to make people want it.

Yeah, this thread was about double avoidance drops, and the fact that 75% of the tank drops off the 1st boss are double avoidance. At least the 2/3 DPS pieces look nice for us. Wonder if we could get Blizzard to change their minds on these and make them 1 avoidance and another more control oriented secondary or mastery at the very least.

An idea I've seen on the tank forum is that Blizzard should get rid of strength tank stuff altogether. Just have dodge work off crit and parry off haste, and have tanks and plate dps share the same armor and necks/rings. I reckon Blizzard might be seriously considering it for the next expansion at this point.
Just have dodge work off crit and parry off haste
I don't like this personally. This gives Haste builds the TDR of avoidance builds with the smoothness they already have. Basically, it makes Haste builds flawless. Right now, we're the lowless TDR build out there and we trade that for the smoothness of damage intake.
It's a trade off (albeit, not a hard one to make considering TDR doesn't really matter with the way healers work).
All of the complaining in this thread was about avoidance gear. o.O
But the thread itself wouldn't exist without the perception that it's somehow wrong for a tank to want Haste/Mastery gear because it "belongs" to DPS. And that's been BS for this entire expansion -- at least.
Haste and Crit are stats any role can benefit from. Hit and Exp are useful to (most) tanks now. I don't think there is a single stat left in the game that *only* DPS like. And that's fine.
Clearly they need to nerf haste harder for prot so they keep their dirty, good for nothing, grubby tank hands off my haste/mastery gear.
Yes the individual who keeps you from dying the terrible death you quite possibly deserve for talking bad about your fellow paladin...Beware we prots are well connected and your guilds prot will hear about this atrocity....
