Me (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Kul+Tiras&n=Punchingbag)

Currently have Andormu's Tear (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=29323) and Protector's Mark of the Redemption (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=31078) equipped and have Violet Signet (Honored version) sitting in my bag.

Switching out the Kara ring in place of Andormu's just make me cry about the loss of dodge/avoidance.

Can some of you experts guide me? :)

well IMO i would definately drop Andormu's Tear - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=29323) for Violet Signet - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=29277) you will be losing just a lil bit of avoidance but gaining a huge amount of EH 300+ hp's and 350 armor plus 16 def thats a sweet deal :D . dont sweat the avoidance loss too much with a couple upgrades from kara you will definately make up for it. the protectors mark is a pretty sweet ring 200+ hp's, more than double the def of the tear plus 15 BV. keep that till u can get the badge ring of the one from shade, which ever may come first. well hope i was of some help, best of luck to ya, and keep on tankin.

Thanks for the help. Here is the results of switching it:

-1.26% Dodge
-1.79% Block

+.12% Parry
+350 Health
+3 Defense
+385 Armor


So the Block and Dodge loss is what had me so hesitant since I had previously stacked huge amounts of Stamina with basically no avoidance and I bet you can guess how that turned out. (but that was so 3 months ago) :)

Based on your advice, I'll roll with the Kara ring and see how it works out.

Thanks

Block rating is worthless to a warrior in almost all situations.

The only time it's not: when you're tanking more than one mob at a time and survivability is a factor. Most of the times that you're tanking multiple mobs, you're not worried about dying so much as losing aggro and having the healer dying.

Oh, the other time it's useful is if you're using an on-block effect (sporeggar shield, shield spike) and tanking multiple mobs at once.

The vast majority of your time tanking, you can pretend that shield block rating isn't even there.
