Keep in mind I won't be doing heroic tot anytime soon, just normal tot and t14 heroics. Would it seriously hurt me that much to just use the mastery > parry/dodge > hit/exp build? Icyveins says both that and and the hit/exp cap > Mastery > parry/dodge builds are viable. But every prot warrior on forums seems to take the view that you MUST hit/exp cap or you'll totally suck and not doing so is as bad as gemming for straight stamina. Would it really hurt me that much to ignore hit/exp ?
My reasoning is I hate having to stack DPS stats as a tank. And it seems all tanks these days do. Most DKs do hit/exp>mastery>other, most prot pallies IIRC do hit/exp>mastery>haste>other, bears do hit/exp>crit>haste I think, monks do hit/exp>agi>mastery
If it really is that bad for warriors which tanking class could most easily get away with ignoring DPS stats in favor of mastery/avoidance stats? I understand it won't be optimal, but which would hurt me the least?
