The pally tank set has strength on it... Anyone know why? Thanks

Pretty much everything we use to tank scales with both AP and Spellpower in Wrath. So, strength becomes Okay for us, and since Blizzard's doing that gear homogenization thing...

Many of the previously Spelldamage only spells (Consecration, Exorcism, etc) now also scale with AP; hence, Strength.The 51-point Protection talent scales with weapon damage, hence Attack Power, hence Strength.I also read (though I never no idea where I read it) that the Strength to Block Value ratio has increased, so it should help that too.The reasons for this appear to be two-fold. One, if Tanking Plate drops, it will apply to all three Plate classes (unless has any Block on it as Deathknights won't want it). Two, if push comes to shove, a Retribution Paladin should be able to tank adequately (not brilliantly).
