Still waiting on complete loot tables from Malacrass and Zul'jin.
Please add the [item]Merciless Gladiator's Plate Chestpiece[/item].
It has armor, stamina and 3 sockets. It is cheap to obtain and will soon cost only honor. I tank everything with him, I wanted to see him compared with the other chests.
I had the s2 gear in there for a while... with 2.3 I took it out because it was inconsistent with my categorizing protocols. I'll add it again soon, with the rest of the ZA loot, once I figure out the specifics. It shouldn't take more than a few days.
Added s2 and Zul'jin loot. s2 is compared with the t5 instances.

BoE [item]Band of Impenetrable Defenses[/item] 796.45 | 1.3% | 1.73%
I think that's the complete list, including ZA. However, there are always odd items from strange places I forget about, like the BoE ring listed above, or the DW/DLK loot. Please, if there's an item you think I've neglected, let me know.
I didn't expect to find another one so quickly...

Since you list the Warbringer/Destroyer/Onslaught tanking set pieces, could you do the same with Justicar/Crystalforge/Lightbringer tanking set pieces too?
This guide is actually very helpful for me as a noob tankadin as well.
I haven't included any Pally gear, since admittedly the primary home of this list is my guild's Warrior forums. I'll post the pally sets here in a little while, after I work out the numbers.
If I compare Faceplate of the Impenetrable and Onslaught Greathelm in regards of CB immunity, the Faceplate should be better. Both items have the same sockets. If you compare them without sockets:
0.9% dodge (Agility)
- Faceplate of the Impenetrable is better in regards of CB imunitiy. As you can put the same sockets in both items, that wouldn't change when socketing. Am I missing something?
Faceplate: 4.51 | 9.02
Greathelm: 3.54 | 8.28
It seems I miscalculated the values on both of them. Hopefully this isn't indicative of a larger problem with my calculations; I'll do some checks on my data.
Edit: thanks for picking this up

What about the Ogri'la rep shield?
Ogri'a Aegis: Thottbot World of Warcraft: Ogri'la Aegis
It's got 2 sockets.
Rep [item]Ogri'la Aegis[/item] 5199.81 | 2% | 2.76%
This shield is (to my knowledge) currently the best for avoidance in the game... and is now on my to-do list.
Thanks for pointing that out Thist
Please can you add Vengeful Gladiators gear?

Thanks for reminding me Thist; I had forgotten about s3.

BkT [The Seeker's Wristguards] 937.04 | 1.05% | 4.95%
This seems a little awry. Perhaps you forgot a 1 in the EH evaluation of The Seeker's Wristguards?
Arc [item]Elementium Band of the Sentry[/item]
Ins [item]Elementium Band of the Sentry[/item] 530.97 | 2% | 2.34%
BkT [item]The Seeker's Wristguards[/item] 1886.52 | 1.05% | 4.95% (EH was incorrectly calculated)
Since adding that last ring, [item]Ring of the Dreadnaught[/item] has been kicked off the avoidance list... however, I'm keeping it here because I like it.
Also, I've added block values to the list, in parentheses after the EH, since it's more of a mitigation stat than an avoidance one. (Unless of course the mob hits for less than your BV).
PvP [item]Vengeful Gladiator's Shield Wall[/item] 8164.01 (167) | 0 | 0
Updated: a hell of a lot. It seems I've been accidentally miscalculating avoidance the whole time. It's been resolved. The differences?
-Agility is now ~26% more effective than it appeared before this update
-Parry is very slightly less effective, not enough that it would make any real changes.
The agility update did shift a few items around, though. Check the list to make sure your favorite items still have nice high green/red numbers!
