i need some atvice about Shaodow preist and Prot warrior
i have a question about boot enchant.
for a prot warrior mastry is the bedst stat to get but i see all the endgame protwarriors haveing 35 mastry and run speed. why not just the 50 mastry enchant?
the same goes for Shadow preist mastry aint a good stat for them but still i see endgame raiders whit mastery and run speed, and not 50 haste whic is much better ?
why is this ?
And one more thing did blizz change the parry dogde ratio so you dont need betwin 2 and 5 % more parry than dogde, so now you know just need more or less the same parry and dogde.
Movement is critical in raid encounters. It's very rarely that 25 mastery will make the difference between life and death, but being in or out of the fire on the ground absolutely will.
Now if you asked me whether it's better to use a http://www.wowhead.com/item=52289 (mastery+runspeed meta) instead of http://www.wowhead.com/item=52293 (stam+block meta), I'm not sure I'd know the answer...
But I searched around, found http://www.bacondev.com/tankmeta/ - which leads me to think that the eternal or austere always end up reducing damage by more than the fleet.
As to the other question, the only reasons to have higher parry than dodge are hold the line (which rewards parrying) and the windwalk enchant (which temporarily grants dodge rating). However, if you are in T12-ish gear, diminishing returns tend to mean that 'roughly equal' is a good enough rule of thumb.
