hey all. i am still leveling my new main tank (monk what else) just wondering if stats are like a dk, parry and dodge to 20% each then stack mastery?
Stats for a monk are very different from a DK.
Since we're leather tanks, we'll not really be able to stack traditional defensive stats, something we have in common with bears. The primary defensive stat will therefore be Agility, which will automatically be on your gear.
Another change from DK's is that we cannot really afford to have our attacks miss often. One of our resources depends on expensive attacks connecting, and connecting often. Therefore, stacking Hit and Expertise are of high value to monks. Stacking to cap is a good rule of thumb, although it's arguable whether hitting cap or simply getting close is better.
After Hit and Exp, Haste is generally considered our most valuable stat. haste increases our Energy regen, allowing us to build Chi faster, and thus fuels our active mitigation more effectively.
Mastery is next on the list, marginally beating out Crit for value. As with other tanks, our mastery smooths our damage intake quite a bit, especially when paired well with Purifying Brew usage.
Hope this helps.
That is not what I was expecting I will admit but is kinda easy to see. So I would want to gear more like a doe with dodge and parry as on ok stat but not sought after.
