Raidbuffed, without Boss Debuffs: RAWR sees me at 71,7 percent avoidance, and you at 65,6 percent avoidance. (To get correct results I have fixed the defense Sigil in RAWR so permanently grants the correct amount of defense). Now 3 percent of the avoidance difference is from frigid dreadplate, leaving us with a avoidance difference of 3 percent.
Now we have pretty much the exact amount of armor, and you are a little less than 2,5k Health (buffed!) ahead of me.
Other than that you have somewhat worse threat stats than me.
While I absolutely agree with your previous statements that health is an important factor and we are already well off on avoidance stats, I think 2,5k Health for 3 percent avoidance and some threat is, while not exactly a horrible tradeoff, is definately not what I expect from a "best raiding gear set" either. And this is what i meant about best in slot and the vacuum.
I have a small picture here to illustrate the rawr calculations. RAWR Screenie
Now for Asari:
The parry trinket is worth over 1% avoidance, dropping the defense trinket losses me 3k HP for 15 seconds every 3 minutes. This results in slightly higher avoidance using SG over SS, and a constant HP increase.
For me the parry trinket is worth exactly 1 percent parry. The def trinket gives me roughly 0,6 miss, 0,5 dodge and 0,4 parry. Thats roughly 1,5 percent avoidance compared to 1 percent avoidance plus the advantage of spreading out my tanking stats some more.
I have the neck, the loss of stats from Heritage isn't worth it. I also drop under hit cap by a good amount. Same reason Im using the chest and bracers over high avoidance items.
I hope you realize that before the expertise soft-cap the expertise will do you more good than being hit capped, both as a threat stat and as an avoidance stat.
