Hey guys, I have been tanking sense the beginning of TBC, but it's now that I am starting to raid with a hardcore guild and I need to be at the top of my game. I was looking for help with gemming my gear, even enchanting it. Also if theres a huge upgrade I should aim for. Thanks a lot guys and here is my armory page The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Eredar&n=Oxin) exuse the mining pick in my main hand. Its really Last Laugh and Barricade of eternity, I don't know when it's going to update.

My first recommendation would be to trash all of your +Parry Gems.

1 pt of Parry Rating is less avoidance than 1 pt of Dodge Rating

Chestpiece:
2 Def/Stam Gems or
1 Def/Stam gem and 1 Hit Rating Gem (if you're having issues with threat)

Gloves:
1 Dodge/Stam Gem

Belt:
Natural Socket:
1 Def Gem or
1 Hit Gem or
1 Hit/Stam Gem

Legs:
Just Trash the Parry gem for a Dodge Gem

Note that these are just a quick first glance at your gemming, as a rule
1 def rating > 1 dodge rating > 1 parry rating.

As for enchants the WOTLK Tanking Gear List has the available enchants for each slot rated by usefullness (I'd link to the thread but I haven't figured that out yet...one of my first posts >_< )

Suggested enchants:
Boots

Gloves
http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=44484 (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=44484) or http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=44488 (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=44488)
Legs

Bracers, you need to craft and socket the extra gem since your a blacksmith.
(gem with stam imo)

Gem Suggestions:
For your chest I suggest getting rid of what you have and getting any combo of these gems,
http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53994 (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53994), http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53976 (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53976), http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=54023 (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=54023), or http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53992 (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53992).

For your leggings RED socket I suggest using,
http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53971 (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53971), http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53974 (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53974), or http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53951 (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53951).

For belt YELLOW socket use
http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53994 (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53994), http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53976 (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53976), http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=54023 (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=54023), or http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53992 (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53992).

For your gloves try
http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53971 (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53971), http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53974 (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53974), or http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53951 (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53951).

(Try not to ever stack parry because the DR on it are horrific compared to other stats)

Hope my suggestions help, Good Luck :cool:
