I'm a little confused (forgive me im a new-ish dk) I'm gearing my alt in Blood spec to provide a little raid cover. From what I read I though I was supposed to be gemming primarily for avoidance, while balancing parry and dodge over than going for mastery or am I doing something horribly wrong there? Is there a kind of mastery raiting a should be aiming for before moving to avoidance then?

Two schools of thought really. For Blood DKs, Mastery is a very great stat because of the Blood Shield mechanic, enough that it can rival avoidance stats. I don't know the rating conversions, but since both Mastery and Parry+Dodge provide similar benefits when used as a focus for gearing and gemming, either is a viable choice. Really it comes down to what you have for gear and what path you want to take.Without anything on my part to back this up, it appears EJ and similar sources recommend Mastery, though that is also aimed at higher end tanking in general.
