Ah some real debate
No need to get angsty bud, it's all good discussion
Generally I have found that most tanks wearing a commendation have stam gems in almost every slot in their gear. Hence my comment about commendation and stam whores. This may be different on other servers but on mine it seems to be the case.
I never once said stamina was useless for warriors, I just don't think that sacrificing every socket bonus and wearing every +stam item is the best option for endgame tanking.
Human error affects every other aspect of every fight for every class, if you're going to use an inferior item (opinion) just because you're not skilled enough to click a superior one when the appropriate time arises then there's something wrong.
You make a lot of reference to lazy healers. I haven't made reference to lazy healers. If your healers are lazy then you're talking a whole different kettle of fish. I'm talking about unavoidable interruptions to their healing which occurs in many fights in BT and Hyjal.
Gaining 16% avoidance during a period where your healers are interrupted is not going to have any effect on your healers, they're still going to be frantically trying to keep you alive when they get out of the interruption. They aren't interested in your buffs only in your health and the rate at which it declines.
Scarab is also a "use when healers are interrupted" ability in my opinion (when in a fight that requires it).
This argument applies to SSC as well, fights like Morogrim where the raid is earthquaked or Lurker where everyones underwater when the boss comes back and your healers may need a moment to get back into position.
The threat loss argument is just adding fuel to the fire really, i'm not saying it's a big issue at all but you can't tell me it has no effect on threat. Not a huge effect no but still an effect and depending on the efficieny of your dps every bit counts.
Just to reiterate, I said that I consider 10K health to be "low" not to be "dangerous". I don't consider low health to be dangerous unless my healers are unable to heal me for some reason. I'm fine spiking down to 50HP as long as I know i'm about to get 22K of incoming heals. If i'm unsure of where those heals will come from then i'd like to be able to do my part to ensure I don't die.
Finally, I wasn't a jackass to the admin. His/her response (the one 'dissing' me) was one of the first responses to my first post, I hadn't actually made any comments in his/her direction at all. Please point out where I was a jackass to them?
