The reason hit is overtaking strength is because hit is percentage based and strength is not. The more strength you have, the lower the impact of each point of strength on a percentage basis. 3% hit is always 3% hit, regardless of the rest of your stats, meaning it will scale with every other stat you have, unlike strength.Smart paladins already have plenty of hit and expertise on their gear and simply gem for strength. That is NOT the same as saying strength is better than hit, because hit has a higher stat weight when using seal of blood already. If you were raiding with an extra 8% strength and 0 hit, you were doing less damage than someone who is hit capped and lacks 9% strength because (surprise) hit affects all our damage and strength only increases our damage partially since they also scale off of spellpower.Current top-end paladins don't ignore hit, they just don't gem for it because they already have plenty on their gear.
