    Do we still need hit/expertise?

    I have read some guides that say yes and some that say no. Whats the final answer to the question "Do we need to be hit and expertise capped like melee DPS"? My pally has none of either and can hold agro just fine from 5 mans to firelands so does the same apply to warriors?

    Forgot to add this is in regards to tanking.

    No. Never needed to be hit/exp capped* since I started playing in WotLK. The * is for bleeding edge progression guilds that might need it to meet DPS requirements they are just barely meeting. No tank needs hit or expertise for threat (though DKs get survivability in their mastery out of it).

    With Recklessness going stance-less, I see no reason to strive for Hit/Expertise anymore. You only need threat stats for two reasons: Meeting DPS benchmarks or establishing threat in the first 10-ish seconds of a fight. If you are having issues beyond 10 seconds, then you need to evaluate your ability use.
