    Edit next thing you should attempt is a mechanic guide And explain how every effect works =P. Btw you are doing an excellent job as moderator probably the best moderator we have had on the bruiser boards imho.
    Thanks man I appreciate that.

    AE Attack WAS legs only but was changed a few weeks ago to be able to go on 3 slots. Like others posted, you could get 15% if you wanted to do all 3, because they stack.

    Wish I had that earlier, awesome

    Some minor stuff I disagree with:
    I wouldn't get wis line while leveling up because you won't get many groups and you'll get a lot of recovery playing with large pulls solo. Mantis bolt and the recast from agi line would be my choices after crit.
    Sneering assault gives you an extra CA.
    Inner focus has a special place in my heart for raids and the last heroic instances but I've rarely used it solo.

    Also for armor you have the new quest line starting in TT from 60 to 70 that give great rewards and xp.

    I started over and levelled up again about a year ago, from scratch. Personally I'd rank WIS line over STA 10 times out of 10. It's because of Chi, you see if you hit chi with crane flock, you are gonna have alot or success, but yeah you aren't going to be mass pulling, but you might get 2-3 mobs at once, or an encounter with adds. Good observation though.

    Sneering assault does, but that extra CA has such a low hit-rate I really can't advise anyone to take it. Ever.

    Yes Inner focus is way better for raids, but it can still help for heroic content, especially since the threshold was reduced, it doens't have to be a giant hit anymore. Also while levelling up, most bruisers aren't likely to have a high HP total, so Inner Focus will absorb much smaller hits. Also it's only 1 point so well worth the cost.

    Thanks for the reminder about the TT armor, I'll add that.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't they really up the hite rate of Sneering Assault this xpac? It seems that way to me, anwyay.

    One thing I would like to request is some sort of priority of stats you should look for on gear.

    For example, I remember reading on one of the old AA threads how getting a higher crit chance is more important than double attack (up to a point), because if you get a double attack you want to make sure it crits. That always kinda stuck with me, even on other classes melee classes.

    I also remember (vaguely) discussion somewhere about how crit bonus affects us. I think you were talking about the damage spread and how sometimes when we crit we just end up critting for +1 extra damage or something, thought I don't remember the specifics.

    Anyways, I think it would be helpful to see a quick breakdown of the stats we look for (crit, double attack, DPS mod, haste/attack speed, ability mod, crit bonus, potency, I suppose even flurry and AoE auto attack), how they affect our DPS (linear? diminishing returns?), and any priority in obtaining them.

    I would request the same info on the defensive side of things, but the Avoidance FAQ on the official forums is pretty good: Avoidance FAQ

    I'd like some advice on weap adornments as well.
    My short list is mending (heal proc), blasting (dps proc) or potency.
    Dual wielding myth and fist of trajinn atm, looking to adorn the fist.

    Crit bonus on weapons and ranged slot all the way. Potency caps, and I don't think it applies to autoattack (which is up to half of my parse). Heal proc is useless, and the DD proc parses like a limp dick.

    I have strikethrough on my tanking forearms, but since strikethrough is frontal only for 99% of raid mobs, it's just about useless for non-tanking scenarios.
