    I'll assume you meant the bold part to be expertise since you listed defense twice.

    I would use:

    Blue: +30 stam
    Yellow: +30 stam
    Red: +30 stam unless used for meta and hits a socket bonus of +9stam or +12 stam then use the expertise/stam or dodge/stam depending on personal preference/current stats.

    If you do gem for socket bonuses then yes, the gems outlined are probably the best, and we'll see what ICC gemming requires, but for now I still advocate stam.

    I prefer to go with exp + stam for red sockets, particularly if you have a stam bonus/need the meta. I wouldn't bother with dodge.
