You did everything right up until now, although I'd always take expertise / stamina gem for Meta. Using all Stamina gems is fine, higher HP pool is always easier to heal. Getting more defense through sockets isn't good, you should not do that.
Your Hitrating is amazing and you will never get that back since it gets worse with better gear, no need to take some hit gems. You could gem for expertise to get to 26 for the first soft cap, but again Stam is > all.
