I just got the Ymijar Lords Legguards in VoA10 & they are better than my old Hellscreams Legs, But i lose 45 Hit Rating when i use them, My Hit Rating now is 206, I know the hit cap is 264, Should i gem now to raise my Hit Rating or just wait till i get gear with Hit Rating on it & gem with Stamina or a Hybrid gem
Hit and expertise are threat stats. If you really look at your threat and dps with a fine comb, you will find that they do very little for your threat, however. If you had 0 hit and 0 expertise, you would probably tank just fine. That is not going to happen, however, as it is on the gear already, even if it is not enough to cap. The most important part of hit for a tank is the taunts. Taunts work off of spell hit which is 17%. However, spell hit gets more per point of hit rating than melee hit. As long as you are over ~130 or so hit, you should not see taunts miss very often. If it is really important for taunts not to miss, glyph for it.
