Tank need advice on Mastery and Caps....
So, for the most part, I'm fairly well geared now - JP wise/ Sadly until I get into some decent ICC runs - heroic 10 or 25s. I'm about done (due to the low progression on US Darrowmere). I've been looking at the numbers for getting myself capped and all and I'm not sure on a few things.
1) Expertise; I've read the cap has changed to 23 expertise. However with 23 expertise my character status page says i have a chance to be dodged. 0.25% vs 82, 0.75% vs 83 (raid bosses). What's the deal?
2) Dodge and Parry "caps"; I read the ideal dodge and parry %ages are 21.4% and 21.6% respectively. So, with also what I read (unless its changed) 45.25 dodge/parry rating for 1%; breaks it out (rounded up) 969 (45.25 * 21.4) Dodge Rating and 978 (45.25 * 21.6) Parry Rating. So it turned out I had 999 Dodge Rating, so I had to "ideally" drop it 30 points. With a 40% conversion for Reforging; x * 0.4 = 30. For my dodge, where x is the total dodge the piece I need to reforge has, or a max total of, anything over will be too much, and luckily my shoulders had 76 Dodge ;) So after that, I had the 969 Dodge Rating, however somethings wrong, I have 22.47% dodge.... What's with that? I know there's DR, but I haven't figured the concept for that out just yet.
3) Mastery......; So obviously Mastery is yummy. But with my current gear, I'm at Expertise Cap (23, but something looks funny with that, read above), I'm hit capped 247 Hit Rating (8.03%), and my dodge and parry are still iffy (22.47% - 969 Rating and 19.58% 811 Rating respectively) so I'm not sure if I should reforge all my dodge/parry (higher value? low value? on each piece?) into Mastery, or what......
Here's my armory, I'm not sure how up-to-date it is, I just picked up Marrowgars Scratching Choker, and the 264 Gloves (Gauntlets of the Kraken).
Also, I noticed how useless the 4p set bonus is now..... I rarely use Divine Plea now cause its a 2 min CD, and it's not up all the time when I use it (I forget what the talent was called). So I don't....really use it. Any thoughts on that?
Also, I know I need to fix my Talents, I never use Word of Glory...... I'd rather whack them with my shield for Holy Shield :P
And, no I don't use a set rotation.... I use prioriety list..... I was never a fan of rotations in the first place :P
