I believe I am thinking straight on this, but wanted to run in by you guys to make sure I'm not crazy.
I am an OT plain and simple. I don't tank bosses in our raids, just trash. A recent upgrade knocked my Def below 490. I can switch some stuff around and get back up there, but for the best stam/avoidance mix, I'll be sitting just under 490.
My question is.... does it really matter for an OT? I don't fight boss level mobs in raids, so I am not at risk of being crit, correct? I would obviously cap my 490 for fights like bloodboil and Suprms. when I will actually be tanking the boss at times... Well, I'll probably make sure I am 490 on any boss on the off chance I need to pick it up - but should I concern myself with capping my Def rating in my trash tanking set?
