How much unbuffed health is enough?
I have a prot pally. At one point do you no longer need to be stacking Stam gems?
Never. You can NEVER have too much stamina. You can, however, not have enough other stats, making stam meaningless. Meet all your other obligations (Defense, threat, etc.) and then keep going on stam.
yes when you can take the burst Damage from the boss.
then you go for orther stats.
But more stamina is never bad.
I'm at 31.8k unbuffed. I have 545 def rating. I wanted to replace stuff with either more stam gems, or with avoidance gems.
I would say do what you want then.
I keep Def higher just because of switching gear and such with new gear that may or may not have high def.
I am just under your HP rating and have 455 def with Hit maxed out as well.
Make sure you have Hit maxed (8%) before you re-gem though based on the threads and guides within this forum. I can't remember remember the actual number for 1% hit it is like 30 somthing I believe. Anyone have that stat off the top of their head?
