I come here because I can't decide and would like some honest feedback. I've got two specs in mind and it should be noted that it's likely I won't see much raiding in Lich King.. but I would like to be protection spec'd.
Or is the idea of passing up on 3% mitigation and 3% avoidance completely absurd? In 5mans, I'm saying. I know I -can- get by without it of course, I mean fury and arms will be able to get by... but would you consider it selfish and pointless?
I personally don't see Armored to the Teeth even being worth it. But I am also probably not going to be in hardcore raiding and won't have the gear to compensate. Even if you had like 19000 Armor, you'd only be getting around 300 bonus Attack Power. That is definitely a decent amount, but I don't know.
My advice is probably worthless though, because I haven't spent any time in beta tanking at 80.
