i need to get more dps than my current 6-900 range. im not sure where im missing all my damage. i hear all you guys bragging about bringing the pain, topping meters and all that funtivity, but im not getting it. this is irritating me to no end. i dont have any problems with tps or mitigation, i just want to do more damage. this is my current tanking set. i also have a higher dodge set, and a full set of ZA gear i use mostly for threat and trash. i pretty much have all the tanking gear from hyjal and BT, save council and illidan... although that may change tonight. my guild was up to council before the patch, and we are planning on hitting sunwell soon. my RL wants me to keep a high level of stam for learning the new fights. ive got 200+ boj, so buying new gear/gems is totally an option and im open to changing enchants and spec. i want that badass feeling back i had before the patch. i pretty much feel useless right now. sure, i can tank and hold aggro, but i feel i should be contributing so much more to the raid. any feedback/input/advice would be appreciated. thanks.

Link your armory ghrey, it could be a difference in gear levels. Some of the tanks here are in T6/SWP, others in T5/badge, etc.

The keys to high DPS on the runs are

Lots of mobs
High Shield Block value (improves shield slam and damage shield ) - use your shield block to bump these values during big pulls.
High Attack Power (Strength) boosts all the other special attacks.
Spam Thunderclap and shockwave

Take the aoe talents, shockwave, Improved Thunderclap, damage shield, Incite, Armored to the teeth, possibly cruelty vs mitigation.

macro Heroic strike into revenge

Hit your shield slam on every occasion

= Win

finished clearing BT tonight, and got the lewtsecks! faceplate, chest, and legs.... so some major re-gemming/chanting and set makeup is in order. so much work to do now.
