Yeah, that seems fair :P
get rid of those stamina gems and go full haste, after you cap 7,5% hit and 15% expertise ofc. You can go for the dps cloack if you can pop your defensives correctly in situations that lets say get out of hand. For example ardent defender does the same job as the cloack only you have to be ready to press the button

Tanking with the Blessing of Kings - The TankSpot Guide to the Protection Paladin - Updated for Patch 5.4!
If you die during p1 on the adds, there is a very, very slim chance of you to save yourself with the tank cloak because the next swing of any of the adds will kill you.
That is, if it comes unprepared. If you're skilled enough you can pop anything to save your life or get gripped or a snap stun, but dying in p1 is most of the time GG.
Isnt stamina better on a jc, for the +480 bonus stam instead of +320 bonus haste? And yeah, I just finally did garrosh flex for the first time (and got him after 2 wipes :S ) and can see why the tank cloak is needed :P
I never thought Garrosh hit hard at all in both HC and normal. Dont know if that is just me but, I payed more attention to my health on pretty much every other bosses, heck I was even more worried for Nazgrim than Garrosh in Heroic.
I even had cloak procs on bosses like Thok and Siegecrafter, never had it happen even once on Garrosh outside annihilation soaking. But for heroic I guess that once you have tanked Paragons, Garrosh look like a fluffy kitten, but still, never experienced his damage a high on normal either.

I am so tired of seeing terrible people, being admired, for being terrible people.
The only tricky part about Garrosh normal going in undergeared was being inattentive really.
Best solution for us was swap tanks each add pack, holding vengeance high on both tanks so the adds didn't pose too much threat, and thereby stopping the Garrosh tank to tank everything solo.
By now I can solo tank everything together with DPS cloak and only div. prot as a cool down.
Can't wait to kill paragons so we can go onto Garrosh progress soon.
Oh .... I get it. So instead of getting the normal haste (640) through gems, I lose it all for a total of 960 stam (480 bonus) , which isnt that efficient?
So once my ilvl touches 550 - ish, I use the haste gems for a jc?
That said, I've never had that problem so I've always stacked haste. If you're not randomly dieing then put everything into haste.
Haste = SotR uptime = less damage.
Edit: Tanking depends on knowing your raid. If you have lower healing or DPS then you have to prepare for that. If you don't have to worry, max haste.

Also offspec tank here, would it be good to use Thok's and the healer amp trinket together?On trinkets: I run(as a geared offspec, 570) with hc malk and the Sha healer AMP. Thok obv is BiS, but every AMP trinket gives the statboosts, the proc is the only thing that is different.
You do need stamina on a few occasions where the burst damage you may receive is over 100% of your max hp within less than 2 seconds. Otherwise EF ticks and SoI hits will top you off in no time.

Okay . I think I get a gist of what's being said here.
Moving on to bonus rolls ...... where should I use mine?
For the last two weeks, I've been using them on celestials and 2 normal bosses. Now, should I use them and ordos and normal bosses(specific ones pl0x :P).
I'm thinking sha of pride since it's damn easy to get to him, and he has a shield ..... and protectors/galakras.
You can get gear tokens from rolls, right?
Go for Trinkets and Weapons in my opinion (weapon is from SCBF). If you share a LOT of gear with your raid (for instance, conqueror tier, or plate haste items with DPS, or whatever) I would coin the loot you share the most; it will help distribute the most gear to your raid if everyone does the same.
How do you know when the tank cloak procs? When the niuzao head comes up?
