    Knowing what you'd like to tank could help slightly, but I'll assume you're aiming to get into more 10/25 man raiding.

    Firstly a little gemming guidelines.
    Generally, if you feel you're weak or want to be even stronger in a certain respect you want to keep your gems going in a similar direction Be that threat, avoidance, or health. Currently avoidance gemming for warriors is fairly unnecessary, I assume the defense gems in your shoulers and belt are holdovers from when you were trying to stay above 540 defense. The strength gem in your pants is very out of place compared to the rest of your gearing.

    Gonna give a little more of my opinion than you were asking, but anyway.

    BS gem slots: Straight stam
    Blue: Stam
    Yellow: Hit/stam or defense/stam
    Red: Expertise/stam or dodge/stam

    A few of your enchants I would change as well.
    Helm chant: Argent Crusade. You have the rep, armory may just not be updated.
    Legs: They're a pretty solid piece, unless you think you'll replace them very soon the 55 stam/22 agi leg armor is pretty easy to get.
    Chest enchant: 275 health (Based on preference, the defense is a comperable portion of avoidance)

    If you can't decide why not do two +8 dodge +12 stam? Or 1 +24 stam and 1 +16 dodge? Your dodge looked low to me but I don't remember what your stam was and I can't look again at the moment.

    Not to be blunt, but why the fuck not? Why would you place a purposeful, artificial limit on the best avoidance stat in the game?

    Look, I understand balancing stats and wanting to boost your health, but saying "I don't want defense over 545" is downright foolish and if you're shuffling gear around because you think your defense is somehow "too high" you're really doing it wrong.
