Also, I don't think there is a +275 health enchant to shoulders, chest slot maybe, but the +10 stats enchant would scale better, even though it only offers +100 HP, it also offers +10 agility, which increases your dodge, and armor as well. And if you are doing your Daily Random, save up and get the frost badge cloak, then put the +agi enchant on it.
As a suggestion, Gather up all the herbs you are going to need to get your inscription up to ~425, then get your shoulder enchants (rather than dropping both of your professions.) Pick up mining for the extra stamina it offers, or go JC for the JC only +51 stamina gems. Also I don't entirely agree with just stacking stamina gems in all your slots. It seems kinda silly. Unless the bonus is something dumb, why not use a +dodge/agi/parry/def +Stam gem so you still get the +dodge/agi/stam bonus the piece offers? After all, Avoiding damage (or mitigating it through armor) still helps your survivability.
As someone who plays two different tanking classes, I still gem the same stats for both characters, although on my paladin has the added bonus of Block (which there isnt a gem for!)
Anyway. hope this helps.
