Now Ive heard many different things on this. people telling me that i need to be hit capped for threat and others telling me that i don't need to worry about hit rating and to just get expertise rating instead. i figure i would leave it to the masses to discuss on tankspot.
Vene has a great post here (http://www.tankingtips.com/2009/01/07/expertise-is-always-better-than-hit/) .
I agree with him; I usually rock ~4-5% hit and 12%+ expertise (orc using an axe and expertise food). If there's a taunt dependent fight like Gormok, I swap a glyph out for the taunt glyph. The only case where stacking hit to cap might be useful if your glyphed for taunt is for interrupt dependent fights. I keep a few extra hit pieces and some hit food around for those cases (vezax I dont tank him, Jaraxxus).
Expertise is always better then hit up to soft expertise cap afterwards they are generally equal with the exception of the following abilities: Demo Shout, TC, Taunt, Shield Bash.
