We're sitting on this boss for quite some time and i feel uncomfortable with losing roughly
3% avoidance/block, 600 stamina and a decent trinket procc to achieve the required 961 hit rating.
90 hit rating can be provided via buff food but it's easier for me to farm 90 mastery food so i'm looking for other options on the long run. I'm blacksmith/miner and exalted with all relevant factions, allowing me to buy multiple versions of reputation gear if necessary.
regular tanking gear
Your advise is appreciated.
