The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Gorefiend&n=Staikz)
May not be updated at time of post but boots swapped to 16agi enchant and gloves switched to 16agi gem.

I will happily take any advice offered on what to do to improve gear/enchants/gems/spec. I usually play the roll of OT in raids but MT sometimes as well like most OT's :). Currently clearing everything except OS with drakes and Maly.

I was told that after the 30k health or so line it's best to stack mitigation. I would love to have the Darkmoon trinket but can't afford it and probably won't be able to for a while due to casual playing. Any Emblems etc.. I can acquire without much difficulty as I raid regularly.

Also, what rotation if any is best for tanking? Or is it more of a faceroll as I tend to do? I usually spam Mangle, Lacerate, Maul, and Swipe (swipe depending on if there's more then one target).

Stats right now with no buffs in bear form:
31747 Health
25 Expertise (6.25%)
32278 Armor (67.94% Reduction)
38.83% Dodge
4536 AP
55 Hit
35.53% Crit

Personally I think you're doing great. Rings could be better. I'd get a better PVE enchant on the head would be the only thing if I really had a focus.

You are right on track. Just start farming the gear on this list. http://www.tankspot.com/forums/f97/44765-best-gear-available-druid-tank.html
