I'm MT for a new 25 man, we're through Rotface twice now. The gear that I'm seeing is remarkably low in expertise, to the point that I find myself gemming for it only to get up to about 16. My question is this: if I'm going to be at 16 with gems, am I better off just not bothering and throwing stam gems in those slots and hoping for the best? I see a lot of talk both ways about the importance (or lack of importance) in expertise these days and was just looking for some more warrior tank thoughts on the matter.

Here's an armory if it helps :

If you are having threat issues, gem it. If not, gem stam. This topic has been discussed, and last tier it was the lack of hit.
