Gemming Advice - Strength vs Hit/Expertise
Here is my Armory
The World of Warcraft Armory
I recently got the Repelling Charge trinket, which completely changed my options for gemming. Before I had a lot of +def gems to keep above the crit cap. Now I started replacing them with Accurate Monarch Topaz.
My Hit is 220 my Expertise 24.
Thanks to posts to others I know i'll be removing the one Defender's Twilight Opal (parry/stam) gem that I have.
My main question is: For Red slots, should I also use Accurate Monarch Topaz instead of +str? Is it possible to boost my Hit / Expertise to the parry level with the quality of gear that i have?
Follow up would be: what item needs replacing / upgrading the most in my set? I have T7 shoulders but don't wear them currently as I don't have the 4th piece.
My guild hasn't completely cleared 10 Naxx but nearly all quarter bosses are on Farm. EoE will be upcoming and 25 man content is rare for me as my guild doesn't have the numbers and I'm new to the realm.
