85 Protection Paladin Question
Hit and expertise caps are what they have always been. For tanks, don't worry about it. For melée dps, 8% hit and 26 expertise. The amount of rating on your gear has gone massively up but those are still the numbers on the character sheet.
As I stated though, you should not worry about that as a tank. With the amount of rating needed now on your gear, you would be sacraficing too much from survivabilty to chase those numbers. With the way mobs hit now and vengence, dps can't come close to me on threat and I have not even looked at my hit or expertise since the expansion went live. I can guarantee though, they are nowhere near cap.
As to parry vs dodge vs mastery, I have not seen any theorycraft numbers yet. I think it's still a bit early. For one, not many guilds are working raids yet. For another, there are still likely to be adjustments made for balance that would render that work void this soon into the expansion.
