First!And now that i've done that, let me say congrats Mr. Rossi on another great article! As a tank as of about 4 months ago, I find myself focusing on defense to the exclusion of all else then before Wrath i got to Kara and realized i couldn't hit anything... You must be balanced in your approach. Thanks for the great reminder!

Back when getting ready for Kara, there was almost no hit on tanking gear until you were leaving T4 entering T5 content, unless you went out of your way to gear/gem/chant for it.As for the comments about it being easy to stack def to the exclusion of other stats, its very easy, seeing as so much of the crafted gear either has a small amount of def and a huge HP boost, or a huge amount of def and small HP. Looking at the ap/block part of the equation is not a HUGE issue (though still an issue) seeing as 90% of decent tanks are picking up Armed to the Teeth and I have yet to see tanking gear that doesn't have a healthy does of str on it. On that note, in my experience, its easiest for your dodge to get inflated, followed by parry, and block is the last thing to get balanced in it seems. Any suggestions for bringing my block up, other than to go and scrounge up the handful of items with block on it?
