Omedon: I hear you. I'm far from the best geared DPSer in my raid (in fact, I think my tanking off-set is higher ilvl), and I still get Omen pinging at me throughout fights as I catch up to the tank. It's worth it to remember that threat stats are DPS twice over. First when you hit the boss harder, doing a little more damage, and second when your DPS doesn't have to throttle itself to avoid pulling. More damage also shortens fight lengths, putting less strain on healers' mana pools. It just seems to me that the current mindset is just an extension of WotLK's 'Stam Über Alles' approach to tank gearing. Take it from someone who Paladin main tanked through BC when we needed Stam and Strength and Spell Power and Hit and Spell Hit AND all the other avoidance stats as well, capping Expertise and Hit while maintaining acceptable levels of avoidance and mitigation is not hard.
