Hey guys I have just recently came back from a decent sized break from WoW and have picked up playing my Warrior again. I was wondering if you guys could take a look at my armory and give me some constructive thoughts. Was wondering about my gems, enchants, build, ect. Mostly wondering about my mastery and avoidance and reforging, too much stam or too little. I will most likely be running heroics for awhile to acquire some of the JP gear, but would like to try out the newer raids in the future.
Here is my armory link -- http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/ghostlands/Bukujutsu/advanced

Its probably a good idea to replace the solid Chimaera's eys with Fractured ones. The Eternal Meta is better for block tanks than the Austere, you're yellow sockets should be Fractured amerjewels, you're blue sockets should be Puissants Dream emeralds, a clock enchant is missing.
If you're serious about raiding Vigilance is a mandotory talent, and is probably the most threa per talent point anywhere in the prot tree. You don't need points in Gag Order,
Reforging ideally every peice of gear should end up with as Mastery&Parry or Mastery&Dodg, you want to keep Parry a little bit ahead of dodge to maximise the benefit of Hold the Line, but really it should work out around ~1-2% higher chance to parry than your chance to dodge. Mastery is what you're really after. if you can get Mastery, you want mastery. THis measn that IF a peice of Gear has parry/dodge and Expertise, Hit, Crit, Haste, or god forbid Spirit, you reforge that off the non-avoidance stat into mastery. If it has mastery and one the afore mentioned crappy stats you turn the crappy stat into whichever avoidance stat you need, to maintain a slightly higher parry chance than dodge chance

Everything Tengenstein said. A few more things, some minor nitpicking as he covered the major stuff:
- Tol Barad mastery/resist trinket is amazing for tanking, especially block tanks who love the bejeezus out of mastery rating.
- The rep Parry/Mastery boots are better than the ones you're using, despite being a few ilvls lower.
- Considering that agility no longer gives dodge to plate tanks, the +stats chest enchant is really weak. Comparing 15 stats to 55 stam, you're trading 40 stamina for a little threat and a couple points of parry rating - not worth it.

Its been about a month and I have acquired some new gear. Changed up some enchants and reforges. Which led me to a couple tough decisions I was hoping to get some advice on.
First of is choosing between the Mantle of Patience (http://www.wowhead.com/item=71270) and the Durable Flamewrath Greatcloak (http://www.wowhead.com/item=70930)
Second is choosing between the Girdle of the Indomitable Flame (http://www.wowhead.com/item=70933) and the Coils of Hate (http://www.wowhead.com/item=69604)
Thanks for your advice.

Mantle of patience>rep cloak, the hit is just worthless. I only use the durable flamewrath cloak on alyzrasor.
Girdle of indomitable flame> coils of hate, the itemlvl difference is just to big and it makes up for the lack of mastery on the rep belt. If you compare them you get 100 stam + 150 avoidance ratings vs 70 mastery. Try to get the belt of shannox if you can it got a boatload of mastery.
