There are two bear threads - one new and one newly closed. My guess is that you haven't read either of them.
I am having a hard time understanding stat prioritization for bears right now. I am new to bear, but I tanked as a pally in BC and a war in wrath, and it was pretty much assumed that stam is god. Now as a bear it seems like at a point in stam (what is being referred to as stam soft cap?) agility begins to come out as a stronger stat. This is because of veng and savage defense? Any way what is the stam soft cap? How/does it change per boss or per healing setup? And is there a surefire way that I dont have to spread sheet to see when/if crit becomes more important than mastery, and when/if mastery or crit becomes more important than dodge. I am to the point right now where I have ~35% dodge raid buffed and it seems like I am getting hit pretty hard by DRs, so I wonder if instead of reforging for an extra couple tenths of a % of dodge if it would be more useful in crit or mastery.
Whew, long question. I just feel a little lost on how bear seems to be working now.
