    1. Insight is PPM-based, it scales better with slower weapons.
    2. Expertise (until softcap) > Hit (until 8% physical) ~ Strength > Expertise (until hardcap). Don't bother with haste rating.

    Level 80 NPCs never had 13083 base armor (FWIW, that was the pre-3.1 value for level 83 NPCs). As for your question, they now (i.e. post-4.0) have 9617 base armor.
