If you are going to talk about tankadin pieces you should probably include the ones tankadins will actually want.You say the aldor pants are worth every single badge.http://www.wowhead.com/?item=34940It blows that one out of the water. You give up some dodge but gain expertise and defense along with a much better socket combination.You ignored the belt.http://www.wowhead.com/?item=34941The chestplate to look at is thishttp://www.wowhead.com/?item=34939#commentsCompare that to the previous possible chest pieces, please.

I'm a complete newb when it comes to pally tanking, so bear with me... but, don't you want spell damage more than expertise, etc? Isn't that your biggest form of threat generation?

If the boss parries your attack, you did not hit him with SoR, and he is now hitting you with a faster swing timer.If the boss dodges you do not do damage.Base chance to not hurt a boss is something like 23%? (6.5 from dodge, 10?! from parry, 6.5 from miss) That's almost a forth of your damage not showing up. Consecrate, HS and SoR are your ways to keep threat. SO expertise will help threat a bit.Spell damage is important, but the weapons with it make it easy to hold threat. Spell damage on gear when you have to reach a higher level of avoidance than a warrior already hurts your chances to survive the boss.Not much good being a tank if the boss parries you and just kills you. All that spell damage on their gear makes it a lot easier for them to do that than a warrior because it is expensive.

spell damage is more important for gaining threat than expertise but expertise reduces the damage you take via parried attacks
