Haste paladin with a gearing question

Whats up guys, my prot pally is 510 and ive been slowly rotating haste and mastery gear into my prot set. Now, i understand that crit is horrific for us so i dont bother with any ret gear that holds crit, but ret gear that's Haste/hit or haste/exp or haste/mastery is glorious for me. however, what is actually stopping me from gearing my ret set fully with the above stat gear and then just slapping a 1hander and shield on the ret set and tanking with a haste build? i mean...could i literally be a tanking ret pally essentially? obviously this would put my parry/dodge at nearly 0, so is there a mitigation sweet spot or haste breakpoint i should be shooting for?

From my experience your avoidance is not gonna matter at all, the only real reason why you would even look at the regular tanking pieces with dodge/parry is because they can reset your avenger shield.

Theck's work on the prot pala stat prio is marvelous and he's been promoting haste builds for quite some time. My prot pally is geared towards haste itself so you could take a look at it. http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/kazzak/Solidwall/advanced as you can see I've got the head from feng heroic and it has crit on it, the only real reason is that it got so damn much haste so it's good.

There's exceptions to this gearing method ofcourse, such as the valor ring from shado-pan assault wich gives small haste but loads of crit.

But my opinion on it all is that you should rather take a crit/haste item than a dodge/parry item. Always.

never in a million years thought that i would ever apply what i learned in econometrics, but without that class i would have been lost reading that page. thats fascinating that cntrl/haste still holds a dominant lead over avoidance even after they buffed AS procs. maybe blizz should discuss their new strat to burn haste pallies with theck before they implement it in patches.

      I am new to mmos and I was playing an Arcane Mage but my fiance said frost mages are better so I am trying to learn how to play it and I have watched videos and gone over the icy viens information but it is still very confusing for me. I know this sounds bad but can anyone like dumb it down or like comment simpler instructions right now i am going off this attachment i made based of some advice and off of icy viens and i am only doing 4152 dps total so I am not sure if this is low or not but I am already level 120 right now

      So uhm, first post here and i take the opportunity to take you guys through my fabulous journey into "breaking" the tavern brawl this morning.
       
      So i get on that six-shooter tavern brawl with a mage decklist ( just cause i need them gold from quest ya know :D ) and on my second or third game,
       
      I play Research Project my opponent had then 10 cards in hand and draws for the turn, but no deck refill.... He then plays Barnes, no minion comes up from the battlecry. so it aint a visual bug. start my turn, play another Research Project, my opponent fatigues for 1+2, i can then OTK him with my 0 costs spells due to my 4 copies of Sorcerer's Apprentice.
      Fun fact, the tavern brawl clearly says; Make a six-card deck and duel! Don't worry - when you're out of cards you get a free reload!.
      Can anyone recall to this happening to them or no one had the cojones to mill?
