Topic New prot FC, have a pretty basic question
Yes stack resil. This may change when they bring the JC gems in 5.2 but it is always better to stack resil.
ALL yellow gems except the head gem where u get a +XX +160 resil (helm bonus gives more resil)
You will always have more 'effective health' by stacking resil just by the way it scales. I won't bother explaining how this works but it far and away outweighs every stat for FCers.

For me personally, I stack resilience all the way. Hard stacking resilience with any enchants that give me resilience have yielded a 66.5% resilience level, with gearing of course.
Stamina in an FC situation would only be useful really for the healing pillow and healing tier, as the more health you have, the more you have returned through the effects.
But as it stands, you're better off hard stacking resilience for the statci damage reduction is provides, as when combined with your defensive stance, gives a very sound damage reduction, even more so if it's melee coming for you as the plate and shield then kicks in aswell.
Even then resilience would provide more effective health returned than stamina.
