I came back to playing a paladin this season and I noticed every paladin switched from mastery to crit from s10 to s11. I also noticed 2 piece is absolutely indispensable. So, I’ve been wondering about two things:

How much resilience to wear?

I myself found 4500 a good number, but since my BG is shitty and there are 0 teams queuing above 2300 I can’t tell for sure, didn’t have enough games played to reach a conclusion. If you have a well based opinion please tell me.

Is it worth gemming resilience to wear a + strength heroic trinket, like Bone Link F or Creche of the F D?

I found Bone Link to be very RNG, sometimes during a chain CC it could make a good difference, so in order to use it or Creche I changed my JC gems to +67 resil, and most +50 str to 25str/25resil. Bone Link is atm representing 5-8% of my total damage in a PVP envinronment.
Since the ilvl has went up and I didn’t lose str or resil my real question is about the proc. Is the PVP random str proc worse then Whirlwind Maw (bone links proc)?

Thanks in advance

Your resilience comes up to what you're playing, as in comp.
I'd say 2-set is a must which you already more or less pointed out. Bone-Link is totally not worth using, I'd use Creche or just double pvp trinket if I were in your shoes. But if you can get heroic trinkets, I would rather go for heroic set pieces, shoulders and legs, then go all out on strength/strength+crit gems.

Bone link breaks CC. You're going to want a high amount of resil running anything but triple dps as you will most likely be a focus target, so gem straight resil. Str+resil in red sockets and resil in yellow. 4.8k is a good number to be at running 2 piece. Once you get that number feel free to run str gems

edit: reforging also depends on the comp youre running. bursty comps with huge wogs is crit, longer games will be mastery
