So I feel like I get my face smashed in

Tanked a good bit back in Wrath. Very little in Cata. Playing my hunter mostly in MoP. Decided to start playing my pally again to do some tanking and I feel like I'm getting my faced hammered in hard core. Even in LFRs. I'm getting smashed. What am I missing for prot pallys in MoP. I pretty much try to follow askmrrobot as far as gems, chants, reforges. But still feel squishy. Would like to get some help if you guys don't mind as I am about to start tanking an alt team. Thanx in advance.

Probably your problem right there. If it's having you stack stam, you're losing out on ton of haste - <5% is not enough to be appreciable for survival. Haste's benefit as a survival stat is in increasing your Holy Power generation, and 5% is not going to do much towards that end; would recommend dropping the Guardian purples for Wicked oranges, and replace the Solids with more Forcefuls.

Also, I see Glyph of Seal of Blood - are you tanking with Truth or Insight? Insight is passive heals, which boosts survival.

Well, you have a ton more stamina than you need for the content you're doing (which is why using AMR's default setup is bad), but the most likely issue is going to be play problems. Have you read the Prot guide here?

I usually tank with truth. But will change all the things to see how it does for me.

I have read some of it when I get time at work. I feel as though I have alot of dead time when playing though. Like GCDs that I have nothing to do. I assume this is where the extra haste is going to come in.

Haste does reduce downtime quite a bit, yes. But definitely give the guide a good read-through when you can.
