    No, not really. Typically if you want a high-threat fight, you keep spare dps pieces to mix with the normal tanking gear, but in general the content doesn't call for it. Aggro dumps and early threat...

    And towards the avoidance, it's not exact, but there are diminishing returns.
    For example: If you have 13% parry and 10% dodge, gaining 1% parry is more expensive than gaining 1% dodge. Thus you try...
