Like the title says I am a Human Warrior that needs advice on Gems & Enchants.

Profiler - Wowhead (http://www.wowhead.com/?profile=us.misha.tavallone)

I just got Breastplate of the White Knight Breastplate of the White Knight - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47591)
but have not gemmed it yet, what should I put in it and should I gem for pure Stamina in all my gear?
What enchants should I put on my gear? Is the extra socket on my bracers better then enchanting them?
I have 19 badges of conquest and I am trying to farm more to get more tank gear.
I have tried 10 toc about 8 times and got facerolled everytime, I always get killed and then watch everybody else die and then I get blamed for the wipe.
Ok all advice welcome.

For your chest gemming unless you need the red gem for the meta just put all stamina in it. For your gemming as a whole stick to stamina unless the socket bonus is 9 or higher, almost every thing that can kill you can only be prevented by EH. Like for example in your head I would put a stamina gem, same in your neck, legs and ring.

For your enchants:
Head: Arcanum of the Stalwart Protector - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=44150)
Chest: Scroll of Enchant Chest - Super Health - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=39005)
Bracers: Enchant Bracers - Major Stamina - Spell - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=62256) you can still socket them
Gloves: Glove Reinforcements - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=34207)

I would honestly stay away from the pvp gear, it usually falls short in the EH category compared to normal tanking not to mention it is completely devoid of any avoidance at all. What ever you do make sure you stay uncrittable, when you move away from pvp gear and the only resilience you have is from your shoulder enchant you will need to raise your defense alot although much more will come with actual tanking gear.

With your emblems of conquest the first piece I would get is the Gauntlets of the Royal Watch - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=45834) followed by the Shard of the Crystal Forest - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=45821). Make sure you keep doing regular and heroic ToC, in there you will get some big upgrades especially in trinkets the Black Heart is much much better than the pvp trinket you currently have on.

One of the reasons you are dying in ToC is probably that you are a bit low in the EH especially in armor, because of all the pvp gear you have on which has less armor than regular gear your overall EH is very low. Also make sure you use your cooldowns intelligently. I recommend doing a little bit of Onyxia, a boss easy enough to PuG with some very good loot.
