Tanks considering combining JC and BS, please keep in mind that you only gain 3 stamina with JC vs Mining. As many plate tanks, will use BS for the two sockets keeping mining helps reduce the cost of leveling and 'cost of tanking'. Well worth it for 3 stamina.

Mining, however, is crap for your DPS or healing off-spec (or main spec).

Tanks trying to decide whether to take mining or JC to complement their BS should make their primary consideration, "Am I dual-specced?" In your off-spec, mining will generally be as beneficial to you as not having a profession at all. As a JC/BS Prot Warrior with Stam Dragon's Eyes in my three crafted sockets, I can swap to my Fury set with Armor Pen or my PvP set with Resil Eyes and know that I'm optimized regardless of what I'm doing; then I just do dailies for cash instead of fighting over Titanium spawns. Dropping my mining is the best thing I ever did in this game.

Mining actually gives a slight DPS boost to survival hunters. Not a whole lot, but I was excited when I realized that- it felt like less of a waste.
