This is why I posted information contrary to what Jin17 posted. Not because I discourage people from having different opinions, but that there have been numerous theory crafting discussions here and on other notable sites discussing the best possible way to gear, gem, enchant, and they all have the same conclusion, EH. There is a reason you see so many tanks going for EH, it works. The simple fact right now is in ICC the current content, EH wins hands down. There is no advantage to going "outside of the box" trying to pull off things most other tanks don't do. It dose not make someone special or unique. It just means they are not accepting the established findings of the tanking community and putting themselves at a disadvantage.
