I'm wondering if there has been some theorycrafting done on this yet. Is it still advisable to ignore the socket bonuses and go straight stam gems like wrath, or are they worth taking now?

are you getting killed in two hits?
or are your healers going oom?

stam is great for the first issue, not so much for the second.

Take the socket bonuses. Go for gems that give Mastery/Dodge/Parry and Stamina.

after running a lot of heroics i think u should just go for socket bonuses.

strength isnt bad also. u can get bigger wog heals and do more threat. i would just go for socket bonus.

stam for blue
stre/stam for red
mast/stam for yellow

after soft exp cap.

I like to go by this guide:

http://elitistjerks.com/f76/t110338-cataclysm_tanking_protection_field_manual_updated_dec_13_2010_4_0_3a/

basically, your priority goes like this:

~26 expertise (not that hard with 10 expertise glyph)/ 8% hit (~900) / 102% avoidance cap / stamina

notice that stamina is on the bottom of the list.
