    getting prot gear without crafted blue set after all quests are finished.

    i've leveled through MoP as ret, and i'm not kinda wanting to improve my prot gear for AoE farming and doing instances. i've finished all quests, crafted gear is between 600 and 1200G, which is out of my budget. is my only option to run dungeons for justice points? because that will take a while.
    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.

    You should be able to get started in your Ret gear.

    As it stands right now, avoidance stacking is not optimal for protadin tanking. You want heaps of hit and expertise (a lot of people are suggesting to hard cap expertise now), and mastery and haste. You won't want to bother with crit, but pieces of gear you'd generally consider "ret" gear without it are still valuable to prot gearing.

    Also, in regards to the crafted set, use Wowhead to see what plate pvp pieces have hit/expertise/mastery/haste and get those crafted. They are SUPER CHEAP to craft compared to the actual PVE tanking set as they take between 5-12 Ghost Iron Bars, and no Trillium Bars.

    Also make sure to run Arena of Annihilation, for your choice of ilevel 450 weapons.

    get a bear or monk to tank for you, or bribe a plate tank on your server to not roll on them. shouldn't be that hard, a number of tanks tank a heroic for 300G.

    Now if someone could just send the item design team a memo before they roll out tier 15...
