In this article, we present you with the best gems and enchants that you can get for a Protection Paladin in WoW 4.3, including profession-specific perks. We also list the best consumables: food, flasks, and potions.
Make sure to check our Gear Optimisation Guide, which serves as a support guide for this article. The other articles of our Protection Paladin guide can be accessed from the table of content on the left.
Your gemming strategy depends greatly on how far you are from reaching the 102.4% avoidance cap. This cap should always be your absolute priority and concern in all of your gear optimisation choices.
If you are unable to reach the cap, we advise you to simply gem pure Mastery gems everywhere (as long as you have the minimum amount of Stamina required).
1.1. Austere Versus Eternal Shadowspirit Diamond
The choice between Austere Shadowspirit Diamond and Eternal Shadowspirit Diamond should be made based on your current gear level, as follows:
Note also that the two meta-gems have different gem requirements, so if your gear level is high, you can choose simply based on what is easier for you to fulfill.
Note that Extra Enchantments can be applied to an item in addition to a Main Enchantment.
Depending on your currently desired statistics, you should choose between the following foods:
For a flask, you should use Flask of Steelskin. Alternatively, you may choose to use Prismatic Elixir and Elixir of the Master (note that you can use both of these at the same time), for fights where you prefer the magic damage reduction or increase in Mastery.
As far as potions go, your best choices are:
4. Summing-up Profession Perks↑top
Choosing a profession for your Protection Paladin can impact your raid performance. As a rule, you should shy away from gathering professions (with the exception of Mining).
As Mastery Rating is preferred over Stamina, in most cases, you should aim to use professions that provide Mastery Rating bonuses (Jewelcrafting, Blacksmithing). Indeed, Jewelecrafting and Blacksmithing are excellent professions, as they allow for the highest degree of customisation. Engineering can also be extremely useful, as you can use the armor-increasing hand-enchant when it is most needed.
