Reforging (5.4.8)

Reforging allows you to modify the secondary stats on your gear. Use this guide to determine the best strategy for reforging your stats so that you can optimize the performance of your Protection Warrior.

Stat Priority

Stamina > Melee Hit (7.5%) > Expertise (15%) > Parry > Dodge > Mastery

1. Check for Hit and Expertise

Hit and Expertise are important to tanking because they ensure that you will always land your Shield Slam and Revenge for steady Rage generation. You want to obtain 7.5% Hit and 15% Expertise. Reforge your weakest stats (see priority) for Hit/Expertise until those goals are met.

2. Optimize Parry and Dodge

If an item doesn’t have Parry or Dodge, reforge the weakest stat (see stat priority) into Parry or Dodge. If this is not an option, then reforge for Mastery.
