View Full Version : Help me maximize my gear (need expertise)

Hi, First time poster long timer leecher of fine data.

Firstly, here's my gear (http://wow-heroes.com/index.php?zone=us&server=Windrunner&name=Killga) = Starting to fill out from Ulduar 25, and Im just not hitting my expertise cap or hit cap and I've killed a few stamina sockets just to get to a comfortable range. (21 expertise rating, 262 hit). This is 4/5 T8.5 and Im wondering if I should even gem for expertise at this point, or just eat the food for it..

Here's my questions

1. Should I gem for expertise with the gear I have using Precise Scarlet Ruby (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=40003) instead of stamina?
2. Swap Accuracy (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=59619) for Blade Ward (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=64441) for more parry/threat.
3. Utilize the 5 Talent points in Shield Specialization for more Block Rating (my BR is around 19,78%) & Take the 2 points away from Focused Rage.

Lastly here (http://wowwebstats.com/vsu2phpdlxeu3?a=x100000002ad4ab5&s=bosses) is last night's tanking WWS Report on Freya (full fight and defeat), From this it says I missed:

• Heroic Strike = Missed 8.0%
• Swing (physical) = Missed 6.9%
• Shield Slam = Missed 4.1%
• Devastate = Missed 8.2%
• Concussion Blow = Missed 3.7%
• Revenge = Missed 6.1%

Is this a normal amount of misses on a boss? Are all these misses based on Hit?, where does it say what was Dodged, and Parried from Freya?

If any one can shed some light on where to go from here, that would be nice. Im noticing alot of Tanks gemming for Dodge and Stamina when they get this far in the game.
