However, for enhancement, we are torn on the "best". Subtlety would result in a very minor threat reduction for melee, over 200k damage it would result in a minor change of ~3k threat. ( 0.7*0.98*200, vs. 0.7*200 )
Otherwise, if someone would please tell me that I'm wrong and threat modifiers on gear is additive, I'd be in love and cheering and can finally lean back and say "there's nothing better than Subtlety around". However, I believe that my world of fluffy clouds and carebears will self implode on itself if I ever start to believe that.
Really it all comes down to what you mean by this.
If you are currently threat capped in most encounters, then you will want the subtlety. You are already dealing the maximum damage you can, adding anything to increase damage would only cause you to throttle back more. A net result of the same amount of damage.
On the other hand, if you still have a decent margin between your threat levels and that of your main tank(s), then agility would definitely be beneficial.
On a matter of personal preference, I would go with subtlety. Any passive threat reduction is welcomed. My damage is far too spiky already.
