im gearing up my prot warrior, and im pretty close to be where i want to be before starting at raiding. I just got a new trinket (the ruby hare) and im not sure on what gems to use. I figured ill use my last dragon's eye (+41 stam) on one of the slots, but i cant figure what to use on the second.
thats my armory link. Also i wanted to hear if the gems i've used so far are good choices? Any suggestion is welcome. I'm also close to be exalted with sons of hodir for a better shoulder enchant, just so you know
I would have to agree with this from another post:

- 8 Expertise / 12 Stamina (threat)
- 8 Dodge / 12 Stamina (avoidance)
For Dragon's Eyes, I am not a JC myself, but I believe the strategy is to put the best stat in the worst color for you class/spec. So for a Prot War you'd want to use +stam, and I would try to use them in red slots as I'd want +stam in blue slots and +def/+stam in yellows.
