View Full Version : Tanking Prot Pally gemming?

01-15-2011, 01:07 AM
I've read some of the guides about prot pallies on EJ, but they all seem to still tank into affect being able to reach block cap.

Soooo, my question is: What is the correct way to gem? Focus on dodge/parry or mastery?
Atm, I have sort of stacked mastery. Not straight stacked, but I've matched socket bonuses while putting an emphasis on mastery. (using mast/stam, parry/mast, and mast) It seems to be working pretty well, but if there is a better way, I would rather do that.

I personally go with:
Red: Parry/Stam or Exp/Stam (if you want expertise)
Yellow: Mastery/Stam
Blue: Stam
Prismatic: Stam or Mastery or Mastery/Stam

I don't "stack" stam but I do make sure all the sockets are /stam or stam, because the extra health always helps as long as you aren't going for health over anything else.

For better or for worse, I follow Digren's Gem & Enchant Guide over on the Maintankadin forums to a fault.


Read it, know it, love it.
