I've read in several places that Unholy scales with Avoidance but nobody says at what percent it becomes good? Right now I have 48.38% Avoidance, at what percent would it be smart to respec Unholy from Frost?

Unholy's avoidance is from keeping Boneshield up longer. If you dodge/parry an attack, you keep your Boneshield up for those hits that do connect. This leads to less damage over time, until BS drops and you have to directly soak damage.

Depending on what you plan to use an Unholy build for affects how much avoidance you want. Single target 10 man bosses? Then 48% would be adequate to try it out, see how it feels compared to Frost. AoE/Heroics? Stay Frost, as all the miscellaneous trash mobs will RNG eat Boneshield up.

Unholy shines in specific fights, but I personally don't carry it as Blood (Bosses) and Frost (AoE) cover the two extremes in tanking.

There is no exact number that i know but i'd say that ~55% is good enough
