Is my armory

Being the noob I am...I realized w/ my recent gear upgrades I lost my red gem for my META

What should I replace or add to gem and get my meta?

I just got a new cape and was givin a blue gem mid run so I was thinking about replacing that?

Also what should I spend my 75 badges on?

Helm? Orbs for bracers or just farm g for them!

General rule for gems for a Tank.
Red Socket = Dodge/Stam, Expertise/Stam or Expertise (only if you need it BAD).
Yellow Socket = Hit/Stam or Def/Stam.
Blue Socket = Stam of course.

Only gem for Expertise to get to 26, if needed, it is a waste to gem for Expertise beyond 26.
If your Helm has a +12 Stam Socket bonus, ALWAYS gem for the socket bonus. You will get 10 Hit/Def/Dodge/Expertise for the cost of only 3 Stamina.

To Activate your Metagem. Put a Dodge/Stam or an Expertise/Stam gem in your shoulders.

Regarding your gear.
Change your gem in your helm to Hit/Stam.
Cloak, put 225 Armor enchant on it and get an Epic Stam gem.
Bracers get the 40 Stam enchant, or better yet get http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47571 and put 40 Stam on them.
Trinkets: get rid of the Onyxia trinket and try to get http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47216 from Reg ToC.
