Please forgive me if I am asking a stupid question;With all of this HIT and EXPERTISE, etc changing, what does this this mean for the 1-80 leveling (outside of the panda area)?Most 1-80 gear has little HIT and even less EXPERTISE, and certainly not both together for the new stat configuration. So we will be missing a LOT until we are 80 and get updated gear (or roll a panda)? Or is Blizzard going to update all of the gear to reflect their new philosophy?

Um... there's not much in the way of hit or expertise while leveling right now. And the miss/dodge chances aren't getting any higher than they are now anyway (aside from hunters having to worry about dodges).As much to the point, if you stick to the theme park ride, you'll never see a +3 unless you're raiding; the hit caps are both lower while questing, and the encounters don't assume you're anywhere near perfectly geared.
I'd assume that gear will stay the way it is. Hit and expertise, while helpful at lower levels, are really only necessary at cap. I wouldn't think it would be worth their time to go back and update levelling gear to add hit/expertise.
