    Prot Pally needs help with gear/gems/enchants

    Hi all,

    I got my paladin to 70 recently. I'm having a little trouble with understanding how to correctly gem and enchant his gear for tanking. He is currently holy as I leveled 60-70 with a Shockadin build (thirsty but effective like fire mage). In my Shockadin build with tanking items equipped I'm have the following stats:
    Armor: 10556 (without devo aura)
    Def: 453
    Dodge: 12.43%
    Parry: 11.12%
    Block: 10.52%

    I know I have some items to replace/upgrade and some questing/grinding to do so that I get to 490 def. The following is an example of my confusion: Assuming I was already at 490 def, with a cookie-cutter protection build, I have Gauntlets of the Chosen - Item - World of Warcraft equipped and I picked up Felsteel Gloves - Item - World of Warcraft real cheap (10 gold), if I equip the felsteel gloves what enchant and gems should I go? For enchants I was considering:
    +2% threat increase
    +15 agi
    +20 spell damage
    +10 stamina armor kit

    For gems I was considering:
    - Dodge/Stam Regal Tanzanite - Item - World of Warcraft
    - 12 stamina Solid Star of Elune - Item - World of Warcraft
    - Def/Stam Enduring Talasite - Item - World of Warcraft
    - Agi/Stam Shifting Nightseye - Item - World of Warcraft
    - 8 Dodge Subtle Living Ruby - Item - World of Warcraft
    - 8 Def Thick Dawnstone - Item - World of Warcraft

    Should I stack stamina after 490 def and wait for gear to drop to reach uncrushable or start gemming for avoidance as soon as I reach 490 def?

    Head on up to the Tankspot Library. Caoin has posted a wonderful starting guide to help get your feet under you.

    thanks

    Thanks for the URL to the guide. However, I'm wondering if one can substitute some of the PVE pieces with S2 pvp pieces?

    Specifically the S2...
    - shield
    - chest
    - shoulders

    I have:
    Head: Tankatronic Goggles
    Neck: Mark of the Ravenguard
    Chest: Breastplate of the Warbringer
    Wrists: Bracers of the Green fortress
    Gloves: T4 Gloves
    Belt: Belt of the Guardian
    Legs: Felsteel Leggings
    Feet: Flesh Bests Metal Greaves
    Rings: Wind Trader's band (green) and the starter Violet Signet tanking ring
    Trinket: Dabiri's Enigma
    Libram: Badge Libram of Repentance
    Weapon: Crystalforged Sword
    Back: Spell-slinger's Protector (nagrand quest reward)
    Shoulders: 70 Blue Rep PvP shoulders (healing)

    I looked up the info. that I needed an I found that the S2 PvP pieces are fine to get me to the uncrittable threshold early and I can start working on replacing those pieces later as I quest, run kara, and normal/heroic instances. So I need to work on uncrushable next.
