    You could probably gain 20-25% block rating, which would make you take a crapton less dmg if you reforged all of your threat stats properly into mastery, and gemmed either all out for mastery, or a...

    Three threads that I could point you towards that would be a quick read, and would be much more edifying than I could be if I attempted to sum up their content.

    Good advice above. I just want to add that nothing will make up for DPS hauling off and nuking any random mob in the pull, which 75% of them still seem dead set on doing. If you don't feel like...

    Just out of curiosity, did you reforge those avoidance stats into hit as a response to the HoPow generation nerf? If so, it may or may not be a justified change. I tend to side on the "may not"...
