    One issue we have in this thread is a problem of misunderstanding an abbreviation.

    RS is Rune Strike. It works on your next melee swing. This is *NOT* an RP dump and is not on the GCD. This is an ability triggered when you dodge or parry.

    Frost Strike, or FS, is the Runic Power dump and should be used at the end of rotations or for RP bleed off.

    Macro Rune Strike into all of your strikes(PS, IT, BS, DS, OB, SS, HS) so it will get weaved in.

    Regem everything you have from hit and defense to exp/stam due to the double benefit exp gives you. If your defense is still 540, change your sigil to something like Sigil of Deflection or Sigil of Awareness, because your sigil currently isn't as big of a benefit as it could be.

    Once you are capped expertise, get your hit up, but you should be fine with whatever you get form gear and can stack more dodge.
    I've changed my gems, but my expertise is still only 9 (40 rating). Is 60 rating the cap?

    I've got some expertise gloves now which I'm going to use over my T7... Horn-Tipped Gauntlets - WoWWiki - Your guide to the World of Warcraft

    Should help with getting me closer to cap.

    if you're having threat issues in a fight i would try something different on the next fight

    what works for me, instead of getting diseases up, spreading them, i will start with deathchill followed by OB then IT, PS, RS goes off.

    glyphed HB, PS, pestilence BB

    this way you get a good amount of threat right away

    Ok, I've been testing it now with 4.25% expertise (17) still not much but it's helped a GREAT deal. I can keep threat with a massive window now with people doing 3K DPS.

    Being expertise "soft capped" will help with threat. Getn hit capped isnt as important and u seem to have a healthy amount. You could enchant ur gloves with expertise or armsman. I would re-enchant ur chest with Def so you remove the Def and parry gems with more useful stats like stam/dodge.

    The soft cap is 26 (showing on your melee stats) and is what we aim for. I don't know what that equals in rating. 17 is a good start and obviously helping. Good stuff.
