I for one am glad blizzard gave a viable option to tanks that dont want to pile on 1 stat and call it a day.
I could argue that that extra 1% parry, or dodge, or trinket usage, or proc resulted in avioded damage that allowed the healer to get that cast off. its all about how you play your class. in wrath, stam stacking paladins had to do almost nothing to survive for the most part thanks to the AD proc. Today, if that same tank dosnt react to the situation, they are dead. I like that fact. i think the impression that a "good" tank = most stam was a poor misconseption spread by the lack of effort required to live while stam stacking. sure, i stacked stam in wrath beause it provided the most ehp.. but i could not ahve been more bored at the time. If theres 1 thing i like about cata.. its that im not bored tanking anymore.
in respects to magic damage.... id like to see resistances take the place of avoidance for high magic damage fights. that would be fun.
