Hello all,

I am a fairly new tank been tanking for a couple of months now and have loved every minute of it. I have been working hard at becoming better when time allows for it. I have tanked Kara & ZA a bunch of times and the heroics of course.

I have no one to really talk tanking with in the guild (We are a small casual 10-20 ppl guild). I would appreciate any help or comments on my gear/ enchants. I wish i could link you my toon in the armory but I can't as i'm behind a proxy at work.

My character's name is Bigjohnstudd from Area 52. Thoughts are very appreciated.

The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Area+52&n=Bigjohnstudd)

always easier if you link your armory like that :)

With the gear you have on you appear to be a pretty high threat tank. Your health and avoidance is a little low for progression fights IMO. To move any farther than ZA you will probably need to get closer to 15-16k hp unbuffed. Maybe buying a khorium destroyer or some other small change. Other than that I would say save badges for legs and maybe cloak and you should do well.

Might want to pick up a gyrobalanced khorium destroyer for a ranged, would give u more stam. I just briefly looked at ya :)

Dont worry about the socket bonus so much; your gemming seems to be a bitter scattered and I'm guessing its because you're trying to match the socket color. The bonuses are hardly ever worth not stacking the stack you need (usually Stam).

You appear to have the DPS head enchant, get the Def/Dodge one or the one from ZG. Also if it isn't already you should enchant your weapon. Mongoose if you have the money, Potency otherwise.

Thank you so far for the looks! :)

Definately get the badge cloak, I forgot how cheap it is (like 1 and 1/2 kara runs) and get the dodge chant put on it..that will boost your avoidance a truckload.

Definately get the badge cloak,...
