Well, If your good with your finances i reccomand to start with the titansteel items. There epic and give an huge amount of defense rating and stamina. You have the boots, helmet and shield. Also you have the blue items from blacksmithing that almost any blacksmith can make for you if you bring the fairly cheap maths. I think there called daunting. When you made a little start, start leveling you reputation with certain factions because on revered some give very decent blue tank items (Like the leggins from the argent crusade). For more info about good starting gear you should browse around the forums a bit, there are loads of threads about this subject which should give you a good preparation for your live as level 80. Hoped it helped you out a bit.
