View Full Version : Do tanks need to be hit capped and Expertise cappe

I recently heard from a raider that My DK tank shouldn't worry about hit cap, but instead should get expertise capped. Is this true? I am currently hitcapped with 20 expertise. I know the cap is 26. What should I do?

Neither is explicitly required, and their relative value is partially a function of your spec. As a simplified benchmark, if less than half of your threat is from rune strike, expertise is more valuable for single targets until the dodge cap. In all other cases, hit is prefereble.

Are you having a problem holding aggro? I was at 20 Expertise and hit capped for a long time and never had issues.

I have been having issues with people who do 6kdps and the standard aggro thieves (MM hunters, Dest locks) usually its on the open pulls. I noticed that my threat starts around 2-3k tps then starts increasing to around 7-8k tps. I am blood spec.
