Ignoring the fact that your gear doesn’t reach either defence cap, why in the world do you have DPS pants, instead of something like Bolstered Legplates?

Heroes’ Dreadnaught Handguards and Heroes’ Dreadnaught Breastplate are also much better choices than those listed, buy-able for 60 and 80 Emblem of Heroism, respectively.
Pauldrons of the Colossus are a much better option for your shoulders – they carry a Yellow Socket, along with Block Rating instead of Parry Rating, which offers MORE mitigation per point.

You should never exclude Seal of the Pantheon while you don’t exceed (or meet) the Defence cap.

Crygil’s Discarded Plate Panel is also a better option overall for your shield as it does offer more overall mitigation than Royal Crest of Lordaeron.

Also, your neck piece should be Chained Military Gorget – your current choice doesn’t offer enough.
