Prot Warrior gear for PvP battlegrounds?
First off I'll say that I haven't really PvP'd much at all since BC came out. I loved it pre BC when MS was king, but then it died out for me and I focused on tanking full time.
With the start of Achievements, I just recently decided to get back in to PvP. However, I'm doing it 100% prot spec. I'm wearing the gear I wear for 3D sarth and all the other fun 25 man's.
I own Dreadful Gladiator BP & Gauntlets, and have more than enough badges / honor to purchase the rest in Hateful Gladiator... So here's my question before I do that.
What gear should I use to make the most of my prot spec and still do well in battlegrounds where healers aren't always around?
I've noticed that my Defense does nothing these days against players... Back in the pre BC days, you couldn't be crit by players using defense alone.
So yeah, where do I start?
Also: What enchants / gems should I focus on? Do I want to stack stamina, or do more with resilience? I won't attempt arena's at all for a while. Maybe once I feel comfortable in the BG's using proper PvP gear. So yeah, help out!
PS - Are my 25 man KT axe & shield ok as primary weapons in PvP?

I appreciate your quick responce so much! I have pondered around the web lookig for information about this. To reply though I was told this,
1) not to get the pvp trinket, because the cooldown is the same as my human Every man for himself. But if I shoud just go with it for the resil over the stam, that would work too.
2) More than likely,I am going to back into nax and just get more gear and re socket/enchant it.And get more shield block rating stuff as is.
3) The ring - thanks, I have been thinking about what's better for a long time
4) boots - I have enough to buy it, I just struggled to think what was actually better, so the furious ones are better than the tanking one I got atm? Awesome, ty!
My last question, is I've seem some prot warriors haveing a 2 set in t7 ad a 2 sest t8, mostly for the SS bonus. Use it over my t8 4set? Obviously I would if i can tell what teams we were playing prior lol but we can't soo...
Also, what spec do you use as pvp prot? I'm toggling between a few of them atm
Thanks for your time man,greatly appreciated.
