Protection Paladin Tanking Guide

Level 110, Patch 7.1.5

Protection Paladin PvE Gems and Enchants - 7.1.5

The below Gems, Enchants and Consumables recommendations are based on the previous Stat Priority Guide. Recommendations are listed out in order of: Gems, Enchants, Flasks, Food, Potions, and then Runes. Keep in mind that we recommend the very best options, although there are typically cheaper, mirrored choices if you are tight on gold.


Gems

These are the top 3 recommended gems, based on their calculated value using the item stats and stat weights of this guide.


Neck Enchants


Cloak Enchants

Cloak enchants boost primary stats, so this enchant is the obvious choice!


Ring Enchants

These are the top 3 recommended ring enchants, based on their calculated value using the item stats and stat weights of this guide.


Flasks


Food


Potions

Potions can only be used once during combat. You can double-dip with potions by activating a potion right before an encounter starts, then once more during combat.

Note is the best choice when focusing on maximum DPS. Note is best used to improve survivability. Otherwise, consider:


Runes

Runes can be stacked with Flasks, which is a great way to maximize stats for raids and mythics+.
