gearing for prot(loot spec)

is dodge/parry useless of should i gather that gear to start off with

should i set loot spec to ret or prot?

thank you
This has been answered so many times already.

You should spec for Ret or Prot depending on what the boss drops. Look at your dungeon journal for drops on an encounter basis and use the filter there to see what drops for Prot and Ret and decide which items you need for an upgrade.

There is no set in stone rule.
Berith is correct on loot spec.

Your stat priorities are.

Exp > (7.5%) > Hit (7.5%) > Exp (15%) > Haste > Mastery > Dodge > Parry >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Crit.
Exp > (7.5%) > Hit (7.5%) > Exp (15%) > Haste > Mastery > Dodge > Parry >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Crit.

That is overly complicated. Why not just :

Hit (7.5%) > Exp (15%) > Haste > Mastery > Crit >>>>>>>>>>>>> You don't care about avoidance.

Yeah, I may or may not be starting to embrace the Crit way -_-.
You don't care about avoidance.

Grand Crusader Procs kind of push avoidance ahead of at least crit for me. But yeah, by the time you're down to like your 4th or 5th stat priority, meh?
