I just equipped my T9 pants and my expertise dropped to 23. It's my understanding that it should be a MINIMUM of 26. Is this correct? How worried do I need to be, and if VERY worried, what has the lowest 'opportunity cost' of correcting this? I have some wiggle room other places if I need to re-gem and/or re-chant.

I have rifled through the forums looking for an answer to this and couldn't find a definitive one. If I missed it somehow, please direct me to it, if not, thanks in advance for your help.

26 is the minimum ideally but don't gem or enchant for it unless you feel something is missing. I was under 26 for a long time, I didn't see a huge amount of difference. See how you go with 23, I wouldn't regem or enchant personally.

However, it is worth looking at theckhd's thread in the advance training section on why expertise is almost as good as dodge vs bosses that parry haste.

Considering only 2 bosses in ICC have parry hasting enabled (neither of which have massive melee attacks), I wouldn't worry about it all. Consider expertise a pure threat stat as far as ICC is concerned.

Thanks for that guys.

I'm not running ICC yet, but hope to be soon. My biggest concern is my threat. In the past I have been an aggro magnet. I like that and don't want it to change.

I'm a methodical and deliberate person (I don't multi-task well. Not the most desirable Tankadin trait, I know.) and tend to get flustered when mobs start running all over the place. Besides the 23 Expertise, does there appear to be any other threat concerns?

Thanks again,
Vhing
