So I just hit 70 a week ago and I've been going through the new to 70 guide over at tankingtips.com. I'm trying to get geared up to do a little raid content before wotlk hits, just so i can learn all that i can about it so I'll be ready for level 80 content. Does anyone know of a guide that shows the approximate gear level i should have before trying to tank or offtank certain raids or heroics ?

since you have been using tankingtips for some gear guidance, maybe this (http://www.tankingtips.com/2007/07/17/when-can-i-start-tanking-karazhan/) will answer your question. 490 defense for uncrittability (still not sure if that's a word, but you understand) and 11,000 unbuffed health. you have both. go get 'em.

do remember (as veneretio points out in his post) that there is a large gap in gear needed to start kara and what will be needed to clear kara. you will be farming for drops for a while, and will likely be able to purchase some nice badge loot to speed up the process. not to mention some of the heroic loot that can help whenever you arent raiding.

anyways...good luck. let us know how it goes.
