On my protection warrior I'm getting to the status where all my gear are either from heroic instances or are crafted epics. I'd like to begin raiding, but I'm not sure how to gem/enchant/reforge for that.
The options I can see:
- get hit and expertise (soft) capped then focus on survivability
- get hit and expertise to decent levels (with 1-2% miss/boss parry/boss dodge chance) then focus on survivability
- focus solely on survivability.
In heroics I basically use the second option as I haven't reforged my gear yet. I have no problems threat-wise when the group is clever enough to give me 1 GCD worth of time before attacking.
So my question is: does it worth to get hit/expertise capped in Cataclysm for raiding?
