Also, just putting this out there... but just because you did it and it worked doesn't mean it's the most optimal way to go about things. Conversely you're right, especially with tanking, that numbers don't mean everything. Hell... by the raw numbers TDR would be a great stat and everyone should be gemming dodge right? WRONG. But just because someone managed to tank something in dodge gear doesn't mean it's right either. Pure anecdotal evidence is just as bad as pure math.
