    Is it worth it

    For icc i figured for tanking it would be better to be mitigation because of the dodge reduce correct me if I'm wrong. But anyways for pally tanking is good to put STR gems or just stack stam. Ive heard for pallys its better just to stack stam but idk. Im looking for more advice

    Look at your gear and see how much strength already comes on it...Let me put it this way, if you go into ICC looking to stack block value or other mitigation, you're going to die.

    You won't have enough health to take large unmitigated hits, your healers won't have time to react to spike damage, and you'll fall flat on your face. Use the google link above and look for effective health or avoidance arguments. There's pages upon pages of info on this site and by not searching for it you are definitely gimping yourself.

    Don't worry about googling it so much, just scroll up to the top of this page and use the search. There's plenty of threads for gearing for ICC around.

    I got hit for 28k then immediately just over a second later for another 23k damage in ICC on festergut last night. There was a 5 second parcel of time where I took 100k damage. The damage on Rotface was similar. I have more armor than our paladin, so he was actually getting hit harder, but we have so much stam and armor that it didn't matter and keeping up tanks wasn't an issue at all. Going for block and avoidance will get you killed, period.
