Well if you've got a lot of gold then I'd suggest leveling up JC for the Figurine - Monarch Crab, I socketed it w/ an 18stam & 41stam and got the 9stam socket bonus which makes it the best stamtrinket in the game. Also:

Damn you, I've been running normal HoL since I hit 80 and killed Thaddius twice but I still have my damn Scarab of Displacement :<

Question

Are you able to put two of those JC only jewels in the crab to have two 41 stams and get the socket bonus?

Yes but that's a bit overkill. I am personally putting a +41 stam prismatic in the yellow slot and a +24 stam gem on the blue slot. That way I net 137 stam out of the trinket and can use 2 of the JC trinkets in other gear pieces for more socket bonuses.

Personally, I've had absolutely no luck on prot trinkets. I'm using the JC crab and Dabiri's (yes the Netherstorm one). I only gemmed my crab with uncommon gems, though, as I want to be cautious how I spend my JC tokens.

As far as I know there's no quested prot trinkets at all in Northrend. I may be wrong but I am yet to see any and I've already got the quest achievements for four zones.

How far can the crab last us, though? If say we gem it with at least rares and there's only PUGs to hope for in terms of raiding in the short term.

On second thought, if the crab can be the best stamina trinket in the whole game at the moment, why not gem it with 41sta*2? It may be overkill, but you're also getting the benefit of your BOP gems early, and making it last longer, too. Which makes it not an overkill. (Huh?)

I don't know what I'm saying anymore. New to tanking so I don't know how gear planning works.

True enough good plan with the socket bonuses I was just thinking of something you would never need to replace but using it to get more stam socket bonuses out of something while still keeping stamina in whatever color socket is a good idea.

about the crab trinket, here my tought :
-as i don't want to overkill it, i plan to max it with 2*Stam OR 2*def. So the day i will have more trinket choice, this crab may still be useful in particular circonstance.
That's why i favor 2*def
-i still need today to reach the cap (540 if i remimber well ^^)
-later, i will be able to swith gear/gem/enchant with lesser def and still put back the crab to stay at 540

but 2*41 stam is quite sexy too 8)

I would use one +24 stam gem and a +41 stam in the crab so you can use your remaining 2 JC gems for more socket bonuses. I would only use a defense gem in the trinket if you couldn't get crit capped without doing so (be sure to get +22 to chest, +20 to shield, +16 to cloak, and +12 to bracers before hand) as it is contrary to the strengths of the trinket.
