This translates to me as: "Pray the RNG Gods allow the tank to dodge/parry/miss every time there's also an impale."

Maybe I should just stop trying, people don't seem to understand what I'm saying. I'm not saying avoidance is bad, I'm saying tanks have enough and the most likely times right now that tanks are going to die are to unavoidable damage that you just have to take to the face. As a warrior I have a naturally lower EHP pool, I died a lot when I balanced; I went for raw EHP and now I live and can tank anything these so called "over powered paladins" can. The more damage you can take to the face, the bigger gap you give your healers.
As far as "minimum EHP pool goes" That's LARGELY dependent upon fight mechanics, if healers have to move, etc. And at this point in time, a lot of fights are just plain easier if you have a tank with ridiculous hps/armor. Idk what else to say...
