World of Warcraft: At Wit's End
Hey gang. Let me start off by saying that I've been a big fan of this site for some time now. Your videos, advice, and walkthroughs have been instrumental in helping me to get the basic idea for a lot of raid encounters since Wrath of the Lich King came out. I want to give Ciderhelm and all the rest of you major props for the fabulous work you guys have done.
On to my issues. I'm at my wit's end with Warrior tanking post-4.0.1. Initial aggro on AoE encounters in heroics (of which, there are multitudes) have driven me to no ends of frustration and almost caused me to respec.
My usual rotation on AoE pulls mainly consist of: Battle Shout (if up), Zerk Rage, Charge, Shockwave, Cleave, Rend, Thunderclap, Revenge (usually proc'd by this time), Cleave, *priority hits*
Also, gearing has been a major P.I.T.A. Everyone is saying to gem for Stam except the one slot you need for your meta. Alright, fine. Done that. Then I look at the rest of my stats and see that I'm really shafted for Expertise. I've been parried (and parry-gibbed) and dodged a ton which doesn't help with holding threat. So I decided to reforge some of my gear until at least my level 82 dodge/parry chance was 0%. Done. Then I look at my avoidance and my dodge/parry chances took a major dive when I reforged (since I have no other stats to draw from). So now I'm taking more spike damage. I'm really in need of advice here because I've pretty much drawn from what's left of my reserves. I switched to a slow one-hander (Nighttime is the only one I have since I can't afford the PvP sword), but that only served to make things worse. So I switched back to my tanking sword.
Any advice will be much appreciated.
On a side note, I'm rather tired of the way DPS is handling things anymore. You tell them to give you a second or two to get initial threat, they don't listen, they pull aggro, they die, they blame you, and you get kicked. Someone tell me where all the smart DPS are because they sure don't play this game anymore. Spoiled...

I wouldn't worry about it too much, increase your hit to the cap or just below and you'll probably get 22-23 expertise from JP gear and the 245 crafted bracers / 264 crafted feet. I found that put my threat though the roof, also I heard taunts don't miss anymore :)
