Cruelty vs. Armored to the Teeth
I wanted to look into the advantages of talents either way - and it's been a long time since I've been max level. Just levelled up to 80 after a long time off when WOTLK got released. That being said, I'm a little out of touch with the new World of Theorycraft.
However, I've been looking at a lot of the recent changes, and it looks like AP is starting to make a pretty big impact on the overall threat and damage capabilities of the warrior tank.
That being said, has anyone already looked into the differences in talents? If not, can anyone provide me with some average raid-buffed stats (AP/Armor/Base Crit Percentage) so that I can consider the differences? I really just want to see if there is a point where the scaling AP from Armored outweighs the flat crit bonus from Cruelty. And since I'm a long way from raiding geared, I know my stats won't make much sense in an equation for this.
