They chip about it constantly because it's the right thing to do for Warriors, Druids, and Death Knights.I understand you are a Druid, and Agility is an amazing stat for you.But for the other three tanks, there is literally no stat that compares. You survivability goes up if you get more stamina, and nothing else even comes close. Only in the most extreme situations would you chose avoidance over more stamina; generally in the orders of a piece of gear. To be equal, it often requires as much as 3-4 times as much equivalent avoidance as the stamina you stand to lose by using the lower stamina piece.9 times out of 10, if a Warrior, Paladin, or Death Knight is dying on a boss fight (assuming they aren't "standing in fire"), and they switch all their gems and enchants over to stamina, they will miraculously stop dying, it makes THAT much of a difference.I know you mean well, and I normally like your posts Allison, but the only thing this blog post has seems to have done, is caused several newbie tanks to post "Oh I knew all this EH stuff was a phony, I'm going to socket and enchant and gear pure avoidance now"You've mislead many newbie tanks, who are now on the wrong foot, and will be gearing incorrectly and having a harder time tanking as a result. That's a bad thing.
