H.P - 30k+
Armor - 24k+
Defence - 540+
Dodge - 19%+
Parry - who cares this stat sux
Block - this also mostly sux but generally 19%+
Resilience - this is for pvp, you don't need any
Expertise - 26 for soft cap, 57 for hard cap. Shoot for as close to soft cap as possible
E.t.c (Hit - 263 for cap, get as close to that as possible)

In general just make sure you are 540+ def with as much HP as physically possible, use a good rotation and you should be good to go.

I have a question about stats myself. I was told that my 27% dodge is useless because of diminshing returns unless my parry was above 20%. So i gemmed parry to be over 20%, but i loose a ton of health. Just barely over 30k which is okay, but if I dont need the parry I would much rather get my health back. I really wanna know if I should full out stam gem my gear back or if my dodge isnt worth it without my parry being higher. Please help me figure some math on this! Thanks!

Parry is the junk stat of the Prot warrior world, do not gem for parry it doesn't even become a question until your Dodge would be at really high level for diminishing returns. Here is a great post from Satrina that goes into further detail:

Small quote from Satrina in that post that is pertinent:


- Get uncrittable via defense first (540 defense skill at 80)
- Optimal balance of defense:dodge is somewhere between 3:2 and 2:1
- Don't bother with parry rating (unless the item itself is better than what you have already)
- Do not gem for parry. Ever.

If you are concerned with your level of dodge you can check here to figure out what may work best for you but the general rule is DO NOT GEM FOR PARRY

Whoever told you that had no idea what he was talking about. Do not ever gem for parry. Period.
You need around 15% more dodge than parry before parry becomes more effective due to DR. That's pretty unrealistic.
