Post-Kara tanking question
This is something that has been bothering me for quite some time now, seeing alot of Gruul tanks and beyond that favor avoidance on my server. They all think im crazy to socket purely for stamina. Now I have read many many posts on stamina vs avoidance so i dont want to bring that up.
I'm main tank for my guild, we have cleared kara and are looking to move onto Gruul's Lair. I know some fights favor higher than usual avoidance, and I go with my full stamina set for progression purposes, but how do i know when i should use more avoidance?
With my current gear i have 14100 Armor and 13900 HP unbuffed, roughly 18k raid buffed but I can still go from full HP to dead in 2 sec's on Prince.
I now know prince favor's avoidance, but I still have trouble deciding what I should be using for different boss's.
Another thing is the main tanks on my realm gear massively for defence, some upwards of 550! is this common?? using the 5stam 6defence gems. They tell me they try to push crushing blows as far off the combat table without shield block up, as far as im aware that is only possible with Black Temple end game gear and gimping your overall stamina to a large extent.
A few have told me avoidance is better for Gruul's, My HP exceed's alot of tanks that outgear me by far.
