5% - to hit with your abilities.
You will still miss normal attacks because of dual-wielding, but it's ok

Nice new logo. Keep it up! Also, the WoW dropdown menu is behind the main navigation. z-index? 🙂

Hi!

There's no correct answer to this question, but here's how you can decide and experiment. Remember that more resilience = less damage output (assuming you have access to equally good level pve gear)

Take 1000 as a starting point. From there, check if you're always the one to be focused. If yes, go for more.
If someone from your team is being killed first all the time (maybe he's a high priority target), you can afford more gear with damage, hence less resilience.

Assuming we're talking about a Subtlety spec, I would assume your team is taking the hit first.

For battlegrounds it's really up to how you play and how much messy situations you get in to.
