gear check please
Can yall help me out, prot warr and just want to see if Im doin this right.
my armory is:
My main concerns are should I get more hit/exp?
I got the charge/rend/shockwave down, so no worries there i dont think. Ive tanked Shannox, Beth and Rylith.
Any advice or am I on the path to enlightenment?
Thank you in advance guys
No, you don't need hit or expertise for tanking so stick with the reforging that you're doing now. Gems are almost right, it should look like this.

If you want to tweak your spec a bit, I'd personally dump Improved Revenge and put the points into Thunderstruck, you'll find that you get more out of the increased damage to Cleave, Rend, Thunder Clap and Shockwave.
Not bad though, you've got the right idea. Stay tuned for the others to share their thoughts as well.

Don't need any hit or expertise, only for alyzrasor 24 expertise(have a few pieces that you switch in for that fight) is helpfull but thats just for dps not threat.
Even then a tight rotation will be enough to get the birds down in time, on HC you may want to take a couple of ticks of brush fire just to up your vengeance a little before the bird hatches, but you can quite easily kill them in full tanking gear with ~7 expertise

As to original post, you're looking good as is except for the 3 Flashing Inferno Ruby's, those should be Fine Ember Topaz. Also I think you could stand to lose a little more Dodge rating to Parry. Currently they're about 230 pts apart, i'd stretch it to a difference of about 350 or so for HTL purposes. But that's my personal preference, not a must.

Revenge damage buff, What?
Protection, 2P -- Your Revenge ability now also grants a physical absorption shield equal to 20% of the damage done by Revenge on it's primary target.
I can't see where you're seeing a buff to rev's damage.
