Paladins should NEVER gem Dodge if theyre looking to gain avoidance. You gem Agility as our Agi scaling is better than any other tank except Druids, it gives about 80% of the Avoidance whilst also contributing Armor and Crit.

ToC when please Ulduar is so cancer
on the block Prot Paladin, i strongly recommend you get 5 points in Reckoning rather than just 4, so it can proc out of Full Blocks rather than just damage taken
their base damage isnt 3500 by default. thats what they end up doing after the damage reduction from Armor and talents/buffs (Ancestral Healing/inspiration NOT included). The more armor you have from gear, less block value you need from it. Also buffs such as glyph of divine plea, improved righteous fury, blessing of sanctuary or renewed hope are fundamental to make the numbers match perfectly. And WITHOUT ancestral healing or inspiration (accounted after all other buffs&armor) , you would need around 3800-3900 block value. this number is only accurate if you have the -10% from them OR from the demo shout/improved demo shout on the target. IF you rely on both the ancestral healing/inspiration AND the improved demo shout (your own or external), then the block value you need is even less than 3500 (close to 2980)
What if you are not JC and can't use big gems, how would you (re)gem/enchant that gear-set?
