"My main is a hunter, and gearing for hit is frustrating because like you said, should I take the stronger armor, or the lesser to keep my hit capped... I went through this whole debacle a few times on my hunter."^this. I make no bones about the fact that I don't completely understand what the various stats do for me. So something will drop and I honestly have no idea if it's an upgrade or just an addition to my "mammoth fund". RatingBuster helps, but I still get confused. My goal is to, with gems, armor and enchants, be as close to the hit cap as possible. I'll settle for a few points over or a few points under. When people ask why, I point out that being at the hit cap means I don't miss, ever, except for what's built into the game. If you hit every time you can, your crit potential goes up. More hits = more crits. Right now, I'm carrying around the best head enchant in my bags because I'm going to lose 16 HR than I can't make up with gems or enchants. As my HR isn't currently capped with armor and I have to use either and Elixir of Accuracy or Snapper Extreme to hit the cap, I can't justify losing the HR for more AP and Crit. What I wish, when I look at wow-heroes and be-imba and warcrafter, that there was a way to plug into their database things like "I want to be hit capped" or "I want maximum Crit" or "I want maximum dodge". We don't all play the same yet it feels like the same algorithm is used for me as for my MM/SV colleagues who have different ideas of what they want capped.
