You are just not really over geared for Icc25. Most tanks will have 45k unbuffed HP and more armor than you do for Icc25. I checked out your gear and stats and you have a lot of dodge and not too much parry on your current gear. This is a disadvantage in ICC. I imagine you get hit often and hard right now. Once you gear up a little you will be fine. As a warrior tank you have all sorts of safety buttons that you can spread out during boss fights to limit the damage. Shield wall, last stand, both trinkets, armor potion, enraged regeneration..That's 6 things. You can use 1-2 each time you pick up the boss and it helps alot.
Having said that I think the avoidance side of this is relatively insignificant. Stam+Armor is what you want to stack. I also completely agree with Bung that proper cooldown usage will make you a much MUCH better tank and can be a huge benefit to you, even if you don't have the gear.
Let me reiterate something I post at least twice a day. If it's not common knowledge by now, all it means is that the majority of people are either too lazy, stubborn or stupid to look around the most plentiful, open, information-packed tanking resource website in the world and find out the simplest of answers. Or even to utilize the search tool with their commonly used keywords that clutter up posts. Here's the info:

I've been a long time reader on these forums, never really got to ask any questions because they were already being answered but....I always thought parry became better on a >1.88. Does that rule still follow...? Had a 3 month layoff lol.
p.s. excuse me for my lack of knowledge or whatsoever, forums have been growing so big here lol!
It's wrong because even though your dodge is lowered and the more you get has bigger diminished returns than outside the instance, parry's diminishing returns are still worse. You'd need to stack your dodge very high to get to the point where parry outshines it.
So wow things have changed a lot then. Ive been off for 3 months. Thx for the info and feedback guys,;)
Then I must have lived in an illusionary world lol.........I alwys thought back in Naxx(wotlk version) that dodge and EH were of value and in ulduar that it was all about eh and Blockvalue and in ToC ( indeed the addtanking set.) and now in ICC its all about eh and armor again. So it has always been then.....stupid me lol..........
I sent u a pm aggathon before i go offtopic :P
Ulduar was definitely just stack EH, you just happened to have BV on gear and it was okay, good for threat, but it wasn't something to "go" for. Naxx was easy to tank it didn't really matter how you geared, I tanked it in like half T6/Sunwell gear, lol.
Since Molten Core the idea has been to increase your survivability as much as possible in a linear way, by stacking stamina and armor to the maximum. The only time that was different was in sunwell, where EH was at a point where it was pretty much high enough, and for certain fights you had to get your avoidance high to make sure you didn't get hit too many times in a row, due the nature of the fights. Post-sunwell it was back to stamina and armor until offtanking H-Anub-25 adds.
