When to Gem Expertise/Strength in Reds?
My question is, has anyone done any numbers on how much mitigation a +16 Strength gem is going to give over +16 Expertise after the Expertise Dodge Cap (which is Expertise of 26 correct?). I would think before the Expertise Dodge Cap, that geming red slots with +16 Expertise would be overall more worthwhile for mitigation and the extra dps. I have been geming straight Expertise, Hit, Defense, Stamina gems, or some combination. Matching all my sockets pretty much. From reading current articles on here, it seems DPS is a tank job as well now; no need to gem for avoidance, nor for exclusively stamina. I still have mutiple sets for Offtanking/Threat, and one with more avoidance stats for tanking Bosses. But for the most part that is only a difference in trinkets and rings. Any thoughts, numbers, tips appreciated.
