    Help me out with gems and enchants, gear

    Hey guys, I have been tanking sense the beginning of TBC, but it's now that I am starting to raid with a hardcore guild and I need to be at the top of my game. I was looking for help with gemming my gear, even enchanting it. Also if theres a huge upgrade I should aim for. Thanks a lot guys and here is my armory page The World of Warcraft Armory exuse the mining pick in my main hand. Its really Last Laugh and Barricade of eternity, I don't know when it's going to update.

    My first recommendation would be to trash all of your +Parry Gems.

    1 pt of Parry Rating is less avoidance than 1 pt of Dodge Rating

    Chestpiece:
    2 Def/Stam Gems or
    1 Def/Stam gem and 1 Hit Rating Gem (if you're having issues with threat)

    Gloves:
    1 Dodge/Stam Gem

    Belt:
    Natural Socket:
    1 Def Gem or
    1 Hit Gem or
    1 Hit/Stam Gem

    Legs:
    Just Trash the Parry gem for a Dodge Gem

    Note that these are just a quick first glance at your gemming, as a rule
    1 def rating > 1 dodge rating > 1 parry rating.

    As for enchants the WOTLK Tanking Gear List has the available enchants for each slot rated by usefullness (I'd link to the thread but I haven't figured that out yet...one of my first posts >_< )

    Suggested enchants:
    Boots

    Gloves
    http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=44484 or http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=44488
    Legs

    Bracers, you need to craft and socket the extra gem since your a blacksmith.
    (gem with stam imo)

    Gem Suggestions:
    For your chest I suggest getting rid of what you have and getting any combo of these gems,
    http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53994, http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53976, http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=54023, or http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53992.

    For your leggings RED socket I suggest using,
    http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53971, http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53974, or http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53951.

    For belt YELLOW socket use
    http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53994, http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53976, http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=54023, or http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53992.

    For your gloves try
    http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53971, http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53974, or http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53951.

    (Try not to ever stack parry because the DR on it are horrific compared to other stats)

    Hope my suggestions help, Good Luck
