Mar 24th 2009 12:46AM Your lack of math on the Imp. Berserker Stance change makes my head hurt. You wont even break EVEN until at least 2/3 of your AP comes from strength (2/3 * 15% = 10%)

The funny thing is, in the next paragraph, you actually address the real reason, at least half of it. Cloth is worn by casters. Only casters. There are no melee DPS casters. There are no tank casters. Meanwhile, Plate is worn by three subtypes of character: Tanks, Casters, and Melee DPS. There needs to be more plate, because for all three plate subtypes you have to have gear.
Looking at it another way: Cloth casters go into Naxx with up to 16 possible epics that can drop for them. Ignoring offspec gear, Plate-wearers go in with only 8 possibilities. This is, of course, ignoring non-typed armor, weapons, and set pieces still.
Feb 21st 2009 7:47PM I don't know what it's like on you guys' servers, but where I'm from, the item vendors for about the same as you could get for the shard at auction. Damn things are everywhere, mostly because pretty much every other crafting profession has to make dozens and dozens of high level blues just to level their own craft. If an enchanter doesn't want to break the unwanted blues, fine, i'll roll greed along with them, vendor the crap, and buy a shard on the AH.

The MT has the more interesting/only job on:
