Avoidence is awesome until you get into situations where you get hit for 14k no matter what. Having your healers keep steady heals on 20khp is easier for them rather then taking spike damage randomly with 16-17khp. Halfway through SSC and TK it was just better to have 20khp, high block and less avoidence. Witht eh insane fights of Hyjal there are times where you are running out of range of your healers to pick up that infernal, or loose abom.So in the grand scheme of things, hardcore avoidence is good, but situational late game.

The simplest counter-argument for why avoidance isn't always great is any mob that stuns you (Kaz'Rogal in MH for example). Then it doesn't matter if you have 100% avoidance as you can't dodge/parry/block when stunned. If you then have a small HP pool, you'll be one- or two-shotted rather than giving healers time to slap some big ones your way.There are fights where high avoidance has it's place, but I dare say that high stamina comes into place in more fights.
