Yes, because mitigation and avoidance can't help with survival at all.... and you're the same Kalon? Wow.

I'm one of the few people out there that will argue that you need some degree of avoidance, armor, and threat stats and that things like polar gear/pvp gear can be detrimental despite having more overall EH than other pieces - but even with that noted, the important thing here is this: the person in question did not have enough health to survive reasonably the encounters they faced.
Bovinity and I are acknowledging that fact. You are not.
I've been agreeing, it's not "after all this time". I am just also saying that his other stats were lacking too... and they were... I even acknowledged that hit/expertise wasn't going to help him stay alive and looking at his dodge, it was okay. You didn't read that, did you? Sad.
Now, if you're actually agreeing with us after all this time, great. There's just this horrible communication breakdown between you and every other poster here, and that's fine. It happens all the time.
Do you just make a habit of making crap up out of thin air? Can you please show me one place where I said you can do Gormok with 45k health? And while you're looking, I'll wait for you to suddenly notice the many times I agree, a certain amount of health is needed for that fight... go on... (almost willing to bet you'll come up with something else rather than to admit you're wrong here... takers?)
But if you're still saying that you could do Gormok with 45k if you have a good balance of expertise, dodge, hit and stamina, you're simply wrong or deluded.
Maybe so, not real sure... I feel as if I have, in some ways, outgrown his forum as I've learned more by experience but I do go back from time to time to keep up with what he's got to say... mainly because he presents it as an adult, not an arrogant, egotistical prick
Sadly, BBB really isn't that strong of a tank any more. He advocates things like using mangle when trying to hold aggro on multiple mobs and hasn't kept up with spec/class changes very well. Which is a shame; I grew up reading his stuff, and his bear gearing guides were great. He's now gotten to the point where he doesn't write about what is good overall, he writes about what might work for him.
I'm a bear tank and you're just jealous!
