Prot Warrior Raid Tanking - Stage 2.
I've made a lot of adjustments, farmed every possible rep tanking eice and enchantment available and I have a few questions:
1. My ability to keep aggro isn't a problem. However my dps regularly sticks around 4k (which I'd like to see closer to 6k+). I've reached 13%+ in both dodge and parry at the expense of any expertise and hit that I can find to reforge. Everything in terms of gems / enchants have been focused on maximising mastery while maintaining a raid buffed health pool of 165k+.
2. I'd like to reduce parry and dodge to 12% and open up some expertise/hit to increase my damage output.
Can anyone confirm that this would be a good idea or should I just stay full on avoidance into DR's (which i think are at or about 13% for each, confirm?) and ignore hit/expertise until higher gear level items account for them? There have been a few 18k+ dps people in raids that get scary close to taking over my threat on Omen. In fact if I don't cast vigilance on them I lose aggro in 5 man heroics at times, which baffles me. But its a good kind of baffled b/c approaching 18k dps is phenominal!
My rotation is the standard on single targets.
Heroic throw, charge/shield block/rend (all while reaching the boss), shield slam, devastate x3, revenge, thunderclap, demo shout. Then I just maintain every high threat ability as it procs / needs refreshing. I never/rarely miss a GCD unless I have to interrupt which is off the GCD anyways.

This is not an attempt to just show off my gear, I've been fortunate to be able to finish the grind session and I'm just concerned that I could provide similar avoidance while boosting dps a bit aka I want to be the best tank in terms of damage output as well as mitigation.
Thank you in advance.
