i did not say that u r putting words in my mouth now i said that i think my build has better mit then urs and that is my opinion from having other warrior tanks with the build u r useing so stop putting words into my mouth i cant help it that my build seems to have better mit then urs from proven encounters in raids and such the other war tanks r using the war crystal too with that 38/20/8 build they go down alot faster then my 38/16/12 build so dont want to hear anymore bout mit this mit that call this call that

You still haven't told me what points you took out of Warlord.
And nice attempt at an insult, keeping it classy.
Both point spreads can achieve either the maximum block bonus or the maximum physical mitigation for unblocked hits (but not both at the same time), the advantages of the 38/20/8 are unrelated to that and I have already listed them.
Your build maximizes block mitigation against physical attacks, but loses the ability to keep the crystal and dodge bonuses up, and significant threat from Aggressive Guardian and the second call ability. For experts and completely physical blockable damage and no high DPS, that's great, but I would go with the VK/Pal/WL or a high Paladin build for that.
Unfortunately raid bosses are not all that, and that's what these builds are for.
wow high paly builds r useless since 1.6 and my mit is just fine its actually above average like i have been telling u mit also goes with what gear u have and dps as a tank is not that important if u keep aggro dont know where u learned to tank but what u have been saying is all wrong go bank to tanking 101 please and start from the beginning thank ypu come back when u can tank with the big boys
You shouldn't have even acknowledged him, much less fed him. I also see that the guy who declared the 38\28 fail hasn't been back with anything to support his claim.
I didn't go anywhere, I just get banned a lot. People don't like being called out for being dumbasses. Now, to get back to what I was saying....
OVERALL after everything is said and done, 38rv/20wl/8pl is more mitigation than 38rv/28vk. You're looking at just the flat DR. Which is fine. On paper, looking at that, it is better, but missing out on 10% armor + calls + cutting + 15% (up to 25% if spec'd for it) block, its not just about taking a spec at facevalue and saying HERP DERP its 2% more! No... You're bringing utility and more PASSIVE mitigation overall, not to mention your AVG mitigation is much much higher. There is really no reason to run anything else, besides maybe a 44rv spec for ituziel >.>
If you want to run 38rv/28vk, by all means, on any unblockable attack you'll mitigate the same amount within ~1% more/less of the guy running 38/20/8 for every other attack that CAN be blocked, enjoy taking 10-15% more dmg overall. In the end, it comes down you wheter you want to help your raid or not. Whether you want to help your healers on trash pulls. 25% more str in no way makes up for anything the WL/PL build offers, especially since any decently geared warrior is well above the soft cap for block.
4/4 FT 5/5 EEFarewell for now, Telara.
Not sure where you got 25% block though, you get 5% each from WL passive, Pal passive, and Shield of the Hero. The bonus from Aggressive Block is available in both builds if you were including that.
Someone once called me a "Special Snowflake" for enjoying playing deep paladin over 51VK back in the day. The reason you could get away with less mitigation specs and high avg mitigation specs was because of the damage you were taking (far lower and very little unblockable) and the fact that there were no caps to block yet. Now, when the difference in 5% mitigation can get you killed pretty easily, and with the tight DPS checks. You can't really afford to be a "Special Snowflake". 38rv/20wl/8pl. Otherwise you're doing a disservice to your raid.
As a side note, if you're reliably tanking with another warrior who runs wl/pl, use your noodle, of course in that situation you can use 38/28 if you so choose. But if you're add tanking/OT then WL/PL will be better because of the higher avg mitigation. But, if someone is running cutting, by all means, run whichever you prefer.
