I'm wondering how important it is to stack experitese. I have 16 atm but can get a bit more with 30834 which would replace 28675

Would it be worth it to give up some stamina and armour for extra expertise?

EDIT: Other gear comments and tips would be welcome as well - except for the weird gem in my leggings, I know about that one...;)

Depends what you're tanking: the ring would put you a little over the soft expertise cap (if i've added right) and so would be worthwhile for agro fights or fights you outgear - as long as the drop in defense doesn't give you crit problems.

Alternatively, if you've got badges or easy access to them is the brooch of deftness, which has a decent amount of stamina plus has hit and expertise so is a truly awesome threat piece.

The brooch is next on ym to-do list.
Guess i will buy that ring and use it until i get the brooch.
Thanks for the help :)

Same advice as Shorty: as long as you stay uncrittable (485 on trash, 490 on boss), choose your ring according to what you want: aggro, or hp/avoidance. And keep both in your bags.
Expertise is the most effective aggro stat.

Expertise is also reasonable mitigation since it lowers parries, which can cause significant spike damage especially on your big, slow hitters like Gruul and Mag.

Expertise is from what I've seen the most effective threat and avoidance stat. All around it's about as important as Stamina.
