I am glad I found this post, but I still have a question. Specifically, regarding hit. I find my paladin's hit rating sucks--he is running around 4% hit, and that is using a couple of pieces or armor, such as the 232 Onyxia helm and the conquest badge tanking gloves, that I would like to upgrade--except I lose quit a bit of hit. I don't seem to have much trouble holding threat, but is it really a good idea to be sitting at 2-3% hit rating, which is where I would be if I upgraded those items?
And, if hit is important, why can't I find it on paladin tanking gear?
