Umm...how do they compare to horn tipped? Unless you are desperately low on dodge, most tanks will always take expertise over dodge, especially when its a ton of it.
I think horntipped have -2 stam, slightly different strength and exp instead of dodge. I'd much rather have the exp as well, but until they drop, I might grab the fireproven. I didn't mess around with Kirin Tor rep before because the Fireproven weren't any better than the blue gloves that drop of the water guy in VH or the Refined Ore Gloves. Now, that's not the case.
