08/17/2012 10:27 PMFrom what I can see, I need shoulder enchant, belt buckle and swap a gem in my boots to a fractured. But I don't know if I'm reforging correctly, basically been using the guide, no mastery, swap highest into mastery, if it has mastery swap secondary into parry or dodge, whatever has lowest rating. I know you want dodge and parry ratings close, but I can't get dodge up without either dropping mastery or gear, question, forge ahead with what I'm doing, mastery > all, or drop a bit of mastery to raise dodge? Any help is appreciated, thanks

Doesn't look like you're reforging the highest stat on the item into mastery. There are several items where you haven't, but they all seem to be because you're not wanting to reforge away from dodge.
Annoyingly enough, the post I would refer you to to show you how little evening out your ratings actually matters is now deleted.
Basically, don't stress about evening out your dodge/parry ratings. When you get to huge differences (around 1.5k), you might only be losing out on like 0.30% avoidance, which still isn't that huge. Right now with the gear you logged out in, you're losing around 0.07% avoidance because of your imbalance. That's negligible.
Don't sweat it. If you worry about it too much, you generally end up losing overall mitigation trying to perfectly balance out your ratings (because you're giving up stats somewhere else).
If the item doesn't have mastery, reforge the highest stat to mastery. If the item does have mastery, reforge the other stat into the lower of your dodge/parry ratings. Whatever difference you have after that is fine.
