    What Prof. For a paladin tank?

    I was currently looking at mining and jewel crafting. (Those gems just look sexy as hell)

    Has anyone really looked up how much each will give? what is actually the best?

    Mining and Jewelcrafting is a good starter.

    Although BS/JC will still be the best stat combo.

    Answer on your other question: Dragon's eye gems you will use will probably be: - http://www.wowhead.com/?item=36767 or - http://www.wowhead.com/?item=42157 depending if you're def capped or not.

    Well lets see... mining gives 600 more health from its 60 stam bonus, and with 3 jewelcrafters jewels, you'll have another 63 stam. so with mining and jewelcrafting you'll have an effective 1230 more health.

    How does black smithing beat out mining for a tank? 2 extra sockets = 2 extra gems which will be 2 30 stam gems, which means 60 extra health. For a tank, mining/JC is no better then BS/JS, from a stam perspective. Although BS will give you more options.

    I like JC and Alch if you are raiding. JC is obvious, but many overlook Alch. Alch gives you the same bonus PLUS 2 hr flasks. Pure win in my book. The 3 toons I raid with all have Alch. My main (prot pally) is JC/Alch. My alt prot pally is Herb/Alch (need to change herbing, just never bothered)

    Mining / JC is what I went with. Works great.

    Yes, but alchemy does not give you the hp bonus unless you flask up. It's nice having the bonus all the time, with minimal investment, which means it's nice to have it when doing easy content that doesn't require you to flask.

    I see your point, but I have 47K with Sanctuary, so I don't really need more health for anything. Since my main focus is raiding, the 2 hour flasks are more important, and the Flask of the North (Not consumable) +STR is worth more when doing dailies. Yes I do dailies in prot. In 5 mans, I don't need more. With a priest and druid I am over 50K.

    JC/BS is only better because of crafted gear you can make. hp wise jc/bs and mining/jc is the same

    I went enchanting since I hit 60, picked up Jc later on. Enchanting gives two 30 stam enchants, so 60 stam total. Plus, I am a one stop shop to help the guild for gear upgrades, can take care of myself in this area, and both make great gold if your smart (That is, until Bliz ruined the de mats market by giving this profession to everyone)

    Hope this helps

    Well if you are looking for the highest stam, LW/JC.

    LW gets you 62 Stam and JC gets you 63 Stam. In addition LW allows u to have resist gear for certain fights like anub the nature resist is helpful.

    But if you ever plan on playing an offspec some, BS/JC is the best. You only loose out 2 stam, but gain much more for the other specs.

    False. You completely overlooked Flask of the North, which is alchemy's "passive" boost when not using a real flask.

    I'm assuming for pve? If so, its nice to be able to craft 264 gear and get the extra sockets that go along with it. In addition putting some of the 'holy shit!' gems you can make from jewelcrafting is an added bonus as well. My pally tank is mining/bs, but if I felt like changing I would probably switch out mining for jewelcrafting. Mining really just gives you that hp boost, which doesnt help if people need a dps, or a healer

    The mining bonus is 50stam and a good money maker, so definitely is a good choice for a tank, for your second profession go with either BS or JC... whatever you prefer

    if your healer type paladin, you must have alchemy on you for greater heal. If PvP, i prefer JC and Engineering for gadgets and good gems

    Engineering is also viable to armor enchants. Don't underestimate the underdogs. It's also imo the profession that blizzard will be able to play around with the most.

    JC/BS is the BiS professions for end game tanking
    There are points in the game when straight stam isnt the best way to go.
    The extra sockets do not always need to have stam gems in them.
    You could go agi/str/def depends on your current gearset needs.
