Gems

Once you get uncrittable and uncrushable stamina becomes your best stat to aim for. Others coming from gear upgrades.
[Powerful Earthstorm Diamond] +18 Stamina and 5% Stun Resist
[Eternal Earthstorm Diamond] +12 Defense Rating and +5% Shield Block Value

Basics
• 485 Defense = Critical Hit immune to almost all mobs level 72 and below (all 5-man instances)
• 490 Defense = Uncrittable by almost any mob or boss in PvE
• 102.4% Avoidance = Uncrushable by level 73 bosses
• 11,000+ Hit Points is desired for tanking Karazhan
• 160 Spell Damage is the absolute minimum needed for building threat

Avoidance is calculated from: Block Rating, Defense, Dodge, Parry, and Agility(dodge).

Macro that calculates your current avoidance (you have to activate Holy Shield before using this):
/script DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage("Need 102.4 combined avoidance. Currently at:",0.8,0.8,1)
/script DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage(GetDodgeChance()+GetBlockChance()+GetParryChance()+5+(GetCombatRating(CR_DEFENSE_SKILL)*150/355 + 20)*0.04,1,0.5,0)

Tanking build:
http://wow243.gamestool.net/paladint.php?0000000000000000000005305133500021025215510520500000000000000000

Tanking rotation:
Seal of Crusader/Wisdom depends what do you need more threat/mana -> pull with Avenger Shield -> Judgement while the mob is approaching you -> Holy Shield when the mob is about to hit you -> Seal of Righteousness ... at this point you just keep resealing and judging SoR while keeping Holy Shield up, use Consecrate when you tanking multiply mobs or for single target when you need additional threat.

Congratulations you are ready to start tanking in Karazhan! :o

Feel free to add additional information.

[Update №1]

A new trick I found recently... tongue out

[Libram of Repentance]
Requires Level 70
Equip: Increases your block rating by 42 while Holy Shield is active.

[Libram of Divine Purpose]
Requires Level 70
Equip: Increases the spell power of your Seal of Righteousness and Judgement of Righteousness abilities by 94.

You can have both effects from these 2 librams at the same time. When you use Holy Shield and remove the tanking libram the effect will remain. With few macros you can change the librams with the different spells you use.

#showtooltip Holy Shield
/startattack
/equip Libram of Repentance
/cast Holy Shield

#showtooltip Seal of Righteousness
/equip Libram of Divine Purpose
/cast Seal of Righteousness

#showtooltip Judgement
/equip Libram of Divine Purpose
/cast Judgement

These are the macros I'm using. No global cooldown when changing librams so it wont affect your tanking rotation, just free SoR dmg boost. envy

[Update №2]

For those interested watching videos about prot paladins:

Hobbs - Probably the most famous prot paladin on YouTube. He's not the best at tanking, but i find his videos quite interesting. You can follow his progress TBC-Wotlk on his channel. He's talking about powerleveling, goldfarming, instances, gear...

Invisusira - Expect to see tanking end game instances as prot paladin.

[Update №3]

On Paladins and Tanking

Paladins, since The Burning Crusade can tank, though many of us still occasionally have to fight against the only views that only Warriors are tanks, and the more prevalent "Warriors are the main tank" perceptions that put Druids and Paladins on the back burner. As its been noted before... read more

I would say 14k+ hp, 490 defense, 102,4% avoidance, at least 400 spell dmg and you can main tank there.. as offtank you can go earlier. You'll be tanking only halazzis cat, jan'alai & Hex adds, maybe Nalorakk normal form if it get fixed some day and trash between the bosses. This doesn't require much gear.

Humm...

14k+ HP - almost there (13.5k)
490 defence - check
102,4% avoidance - check
400 Spell Damage - check (with slow mace -.-') If not 368

Guess I'm good to off tank
