Was wondering what the Spec would look like for optimal Mitigation Spec.

-Pick up Demo Shout? why or why not?
-Deep Wounds All that Important?
-My threat was Awesome W/O Deepwounds, i understand the dmg that comes out of it but couldn't i technically get more damage mitigated with imp demo shout ?
-Improved Disciplines? Why or Why not?

Also anything else i can Do to get more mitigation any other way?

All input will Be very Appreciated

Generally 5/15/51 is considered the 'optimal' mitigation spec.

You sacrifice some threat talents for the mitigation, picking up Imp Demo, Disciplines and Commanding Presence most notably. Obviously it can be tweaked based on what is available in your raid.

An example of what a 5/15/51 spec would look like is The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/talent-calc.xml?cid=1&tal=0500000000000000000000000000000320500005000000 000000000000053351025000212521030113321)

Given the gearing you currently have, which is outstanding by the way. id run the standard spec you are now. Except drop 2 points from cruelty and add improved disc. Drop the block glyph and add the shield wall glyph. This will add more general cooldowns for you. This spec I have found makes you a hell of alot more squishier. hence all the cooldowns. But I find it to be very very gear dependant. Which luckily, you have.

But im pretty shure the shield wall glyph and the talent do not stack also everyone says Bladeward>accuracy but i think accuracy is much better imo

I can confirm that the Glyph of Shield Wall stacks with the Improved Disciplines talent, resulting in a darn useful 2 minute cooldown 40% Shield Wall.

In fact, Veneretio's blog has a post discussing the usefulness of pairing the two, available here: Buffing Shield Wall: The Whole > The Parts - Warriors - TankingTips.com (http://www.tankingtips.com/2009/07/03/buffing-shield-wall-the-whole-the-parts/)
