1. Gemming (unless you're working on hard modes)
Yellow = Mastery
Blue = Mastery/Stam -> unless socket bonus is DPS - then mastery
Red = Parry/Mastery -> unless socket bonus is DPS - then mastery
A) Has mastery? If no, reforge haste/hit/exp/(dodge/parry) in that order to mastery.
B) If yes - Has Dodge/Parry? If no, reforge it to Dodge/Parry (keeping dodge ~2.5% lower than parry)
C) If yes, meaning it's ideal Mastery/(Dodge/Parry) gear, then only reforge if you need to in order to keep parry ~2.5% higher than dodge.
