Icy Veins, Wowhead both suggest stacking stam gems everywhere, focusing on dodge/expertise last, but when using BiB and BiS AMR seems to be prioritizing Dodge/Defense, this results in my capping out HP at about 26k, vs 31K, can someone explain the strategy here?

There are a number of different ways to give value to tanking stats - no one can say for sure what is the “best” stat for staying alive. I would say try playing with what we suggest. If you feel like you are getting killed by spike damage, then increase the stamina a bit. How much stamina you need is highly dependent on your healers, as well. It’s not a one-size fits all sort of solution.

We could tweak our calculations to favor stamina more - but it would be a fairly arbitrary tweak.

Thanks, that’s what i’m doing this week, testing out the strat in heroics before next week raids. Also, on that snap shot my parry is 21%, but in game only reflects 17% am i missing something?
