It's late and i could have made a mistake somewhere and not noticed, but given my current setup (Zeherah's Hunter DPS Analyzer), when i change the Delicate Chimera's Eye in my belt to just a Delicate Inferno Ruby, i actually GAIN 25.6 dps. From what i can tell, my Meta is still active, which is the only thing i could think of off hand that could have possibly changed. So is this a bug with the simulator, or am i just not paying enough attention to something?
I actually do not trust femaledwarf a lot. However today i realised that the combination of 2/2 Owl's Focus and 2/2 Wild Hunt could provide an interesting dpsbonus.
The result on femaledwarf was positiv. I compared the cat with the ravager and had a plus of about 160 dps.
As far as reforging goes, the most gains overall to both threat build and survivability that I have seen is when following the
Mastery>Parry>Dodge stat priority
(this stat priority list is only in regards to reforging as reforging for more stam is impossible, a decent health pool should be maintained but not at the sacrifice of the avoidance stats. The dual cut gems ie Mastery/Stam etc cuts of gems should be used to achieve this)
The best practice for reforging is to focus more towards the parry and mastery stats.
So for example if a piece of your tanking set has mastery and parry already on it then no reforging is necessary.
Where as if you are wearing a piece with secondary stats Mastery and Dodge or Parry and Dodge then reforge as follows.
Mastery & Dodge on gear = reforge dodge to parry as this will help with threat gen and dodge is the weakest stat for threat gen when combined with its use in avoidance. As well as this will help with Hold the Line procs.
Parry & Dodge on gear = you should consider reforging the dodge to either mastery or to expertise depending on your level of gear and if you are or are not expertise capped at your current gear level.
The options your have for reforging should be balanced with the stats you are prioritizing in gems as well. Anyone that is using straight cuts to certain stats should use reforging to make up for stats they are not gemming for. In the Cata expansion its no longer the clear cookie cutter list of reforging and gemming options to follow. A healthy balance to all of your stats will make you more adaptable to fill the role of Heroic, Raid(main) and Raid(off) tanks.
I am curious, just how far does this go with gemming? Presently, I am at: (HP=152,379), (Mastery=17.09), (Parry=12.47), (Dodge=11.44), (Block=46.09) (Expertise=17). All my gemming is currently at +60 stam. There are 4 slots (3 yellow, 1 red). If I switched to Mastery/Useful Avoidance or Hit stat gem, total, I would be doing -90 stam for +60 mastery, +10 parry, +20 dodge, and +20 in another Purple gem stat. Is that really worth the loss of 900hp?

Hello there fellow moonkin. I was wondering if the Volcanic Deck(card) is viable at all for us with such a hefty chunk of it dedicated to mastery. I am currently wearing The jewel crafting serpent trinket and a heroic gale of shadows. Should I sell this deck or equip it? I am truly at a loss on what to do.
