I'm quite confused, few people seem willing to question the "stamina/mastery > parry/dodge" ethos that exists in this thread.
Here is a quote from askmrrobot: "With the 5.4 changes, we recommend an avoidance build as the best balance of durability and tank DPS, both of which are important for most raid situations. By default, we recommend a 'Medium' Stamina strategy for normal-mode tanking. If you are doing heroic 10 or 25 raids, or you feel a bit squishy for any reason, customize to use a 'High' Stamina strategy, or consider a Mastery build."
Also, the mmo-champion thread seems to recommend to prioritise avoidance as well: http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...ection-Warrior.
Here are the armory links to current people who have significant T15 heroic experience that have posted to the first page of the above thread. They all prioritise parry and dodge over both stamina and mastery.
And here are some quotes from the mmo-champion thread in the last couple of days:
"I used an all out parry/dodge build last night (8/14N), and absolutely loved it." farmergregor
"I geared full avoidance last night and omg. So much rage! The spikier damage intake is completely offset by all of the extra shield absorbs." mongoose6
"I switched to avoidance and damn i love the rage generation." Lintan
"New SimC 540-1 is online. But the result is very clear. Avoidance Gear brings a lot of fun back to Warrior Tanking." Muuku
Why are simulations in mmo-champion thread and askmrrobot recommending a different gemming strategy than the simulations presented in this thread?
