Prot paladin

As prot, at 85 ( as soon as i lvl) Will i need more Dodge/Parry/or Mastery? What is good to have of each for heroics? please help asap
Even though I am not 85 yet I would say get 20% on dodge and parry at least and with mastery increasing your block chance id say 25% or more (its a guess)
Right now at 84, and i figure ill be wearing mostly the same stuff at 85 i have...11.39 dodge 12.74 parry 38.52 block and 33% from Mastery
I don't remember if this is from ElitistJerks or MainTankadin, but here it least for Dodge/Parry/Mastery.

Stack parry rating up to 21.21% and dodge rating up to 21.6% (931 rating for both stats). Dodge and parry are our most effective ratings up to this point. After this reforge excess parry and dodge into mastery rating until you reach 102.4% combined avoidance and mitigation.

Basically you want this:

You want to reach 102.4% avoidance and mitigation by combining

5% base chance to miss + % chance to parry + % chance to dodge + % chance to block = 102.4%

Here is a quick little macro to check it in game with a single click whenever you want (or just add them from you character sheet).

/script DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage(“Need 102.4 combat table coverage. Currently at: “..string.format(“%.2f”, GetDodgeChance()+GetBlockChance()+GetParryChance() +5))

The 102.4% is what you should be shooting for to maximize mitigation/avoidance in theory. I have no idea if it's actually attainable at this point.
Thanks for the help, I got the macro in so i can use it to check =)
As it stands as of this point it is impossible to have 20 dodge/parry and have enough mastery to reach the 102.4%. The best avoidance stat as of now is mastery because it has no diminishing returns. 10-12% dodge/parry is where you should be around and just stack mastery.
