Until I heard about the agility change in the 4.2 notes, I was under the impression that agility's contribution to avoidance was already negligible for plate wearers (at least since Wrath). So there's no let-down for me. Then again, I only tank heroic 5-mans, not raids, and I don't bother with best-in-slot lists.With hit and expertise being such low-priority stats for tanking, I wonder if they'll consider rolling a bonus to Hit into a ability low in each tanking tree to allow for smoother threat generation. (Ok, maybe there already is, and I've forgotten?)The tanking thing I'm most curious about is how it will be once we get aggro-free crowd control. But that doesn't warrant a question, I'll just see how it is when it happens.

Apparently some agility items are currently worth using for plate wearing tanks. It's weird, but I've read some respectable tanks writing about how some agility items are viable for them.

It is basically "forcing" people to use "poorly itemised str items" (as our tanks so delicately put it) of Firelands.Example on current tier is that for example http://www.wowhead.com/item=65058 is best ranged slot item for warrior tanks after reforging crit to avoidance.And tanks have been looking at http://www.wowhead.com/item=69001 as way better TANKING trinket than http://www.wowhead.com/item=68996and item=68994 would've given dodge and nice mastery proc!And for example T12 would have item=71414 as super awesome tanking ranged slot if it werent for the change making only mastery and whatever you reforge to usefulTheres no tanking ranged items in firelands as of yet.(NOTE: cant post more than 3 links so just add ptr wowhead com to item links at bottom)
