For paladins and us, pretty sure paladin wins due to being able to bop of frozen stacks for example. But looking at bisou's video it seems pretty easy and straightforward and i cant really see a drawback to it. My only concern is my relatively low ilvl (556)
On 10 man it's 30% of max hp, and on 25 it's 50%, so reaching anything above 30% of your max hp is just a tooltip error.
If i'm wrong here i'd love to know but I believe this is how it is.
As for you santa, 556 is indeed pretty damn low kinda suprised you're that low really, i'm thinking 3 healers two tanks personally, 4 healing route i'd never take. But if people say 1 tanking it is easier on everyone then ye... would be a bit silly not to.
PD: About thok, we are failing horribly at it, and have been trying all kind of things. If you ask me, it depends on the healers and the number of paladins you have. Shaman and druid, great, none, uh oh. 0 paladins, skip the boss, 1 paladin ok~ish, 2 paladins, trivial. If you go 2 tanks, 4 healers, you probably will kill it on the last kite, if at all. 1 tank 4 would be fine, 1 tank 3 healers maybe overkill unless the tank is a paladin (LH and EF on steroids, devotion, double bop and sacrifice... yeah, well. It is worth it, considering they will put forth the numbers of normal healer, ~200k, and bring you the best CDs possible for the boss).
PD: Well, he died surprinsingly easy with 4 healers and 2 tanks, 1 stack in fire. Wonder if you could go full retard and kill with 5 healers and 2 tanks xD I guess... forcing several offspecs to get the "correct" healer classes makes wonder.

If you don't need the offhealing/cooldowns the pally brings and the only thing keeping you from a kill is DPS then you're probably better off tanking it though. Can't really see DPS being the issue, so the more paladins the better.

So I finally made the switch to dodge/parry to try it out. I don't really like it to be honest. What kind of gear is needed to outshine mastery or is it just close and up to preference. I am currently at 527 ilv and only get 27% crit with full raid buffs and riposte up. My crit % on shield slams were pitiful. I didn't really do that much more damage, I took way more damage (and big spikes), and lost alot of mastery for this build.
But ye, this requires rekills on Malkorok & Spoils (of which I dread Malk the most :x).
Anyhow, if the DPS requirement allows for 4 healers, I imagen 3 healers 2 tanks should be absolutely fine. So I'll drop the solo tanking thing for now atleast (especially if the prot paladin is supperior kinda hard to raidlead when not there )
With a sizeable amount of stamina/armor and proper use of Barrier it outshines the Mastery in pretty much everything, especially dps.
Garrosh aside there is nothing in normal mode soo that should provide an issue for your 527 ilvl.

I'm not saying it's an all or nothing but to really test it out you need to have the apropriate gear. Would you happen to have an armory link to see if there is anythign in that department that might be able to be tweaked?

Any try and even out parry/dodge or is the consensus still preference. Im sitting at 42 parry 15.22 dodge.
I don't think the couple of decimals of avoidance outweights hold the line and parry haste. Might as well put everything into parry. After all, if you are going for avoidance is because you care about DPS.
