I actually think I would take 8k armor over shield wall, but it would depend on the fight. If it was like gormok or if I was the one having to survive the big bang on algalon, then yes shield wall is obviously a necessity, same with steelbreaker, festergut, etc. But that's a much much larger damage reduction. 20% EH is about half a hit from the harder hitting bosses (seeing 25k even with 36k+ armor raid buffed seems to be a common amount on harder hitting bosses), but that's only one hit. That is no where near as good as shield wall. I also think I'd take 4.5k passive health over last stand, but again it would be fight dependent. That's why ever since we were first discussing this I've advocated going with offset pieces first before tier, that way once all the bosses are out and you're raking in the badges, it's easier to pick up tier tokens and allows the other classes on your token to pick up their gear (which is better for them than it is for prot warriors at least) first.
