Ya hit cap my not be a real big prob, but realy Mr. Robot all my gems need to be +Stam?!You can tell my healers why im getting hit so hard

Yeah, and the weird thing was that it rated Dodge and Parry at 100, Mastery at 91, and Stam at 90.And yet it still told me to stack stam. Silly robot.

@JT; with those weightings, that's not even that strange, since pure Stam gems offer +60 Stam, while pure Mastery/Dodge/Parry gems offer only 40 of their particular poison: 100*40 < 90*60.However, especially for tanking I would heartily advocate:1. finetuning weightings to your own preference and tanking style (and the problems YOU face when tanking the content YOU are tanking (getting overaggroed in HCs requires a different stat weighting from being flattend in HC Raids).2. taking the robot overlord's suggestions with a healthy helping of salt and own theorycraft3. continue to do your own thinking, and see this for what it is: an easy visualisation of suggestions for your set.

You're forgetting that stamina gems offer 60 stam while the other gems only offer 40. So the stamina gems are still quite clearly in front given those stat weightings. I don't think stat weighting really gives the whole picture when it comes to tanking, unlike for dps, and you don't necessarily always want to gem straight stam. But that's really a bit beyond the scope of a spreadsheet application.

Wow, great point about the 60/40 difference. That makes a ton of sense.Man, there goes another 1kg to some lucky JC on my realm.

In response to tank stat weights:I'd like to tweak some of our defaults to be less stamina-heavy. I'll be researching that over the next couple days.Mr. Robot has two really cool "automatic" features for tanks:1. Diminishing returns are automatically applied to parry and dodge stat weights. The default weights (and any weights that you enter) are pre-DR weights, then the code handles dynamically reducing the weight as you get more and more avoidance. Handy!2. Parry and dodge are automatically balanced to reduce the effects of diminishing returns -- you don't have to bother doing it manually by messing with the weights.These two features are extremely handy, and should both save you a lot of time and produce better sets of gear.
