Hello,

I was just wondering if anyone might have some advice for me based on my current gear/talents and my intentions to start tanking Naxx 10 tomorrow night.

The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Thrall&n=Kaelrath)

I haven't done Naxx yet and would appreciate any input. I pretty much have no problems tanking any heroics at this point and was just wondering how I might measure up for raid(s).

Thanks in advance

You're way more than ready for Naxx10, I only have one piece of advice: never gem for parry, go for dodge if you want avoidance, or stam of overall survivability.

Let me explain my gems...at the time I gemmed, I needed specific colors to activate my meta gem and this was the best (tank stuff) available at the time. I am constantly juggling gems and enchantments and well, what I posted here is my current makeup (at least for this hour, lol). I also have a few trinkets that I swap a lot but I just got the gossamer thing and was playing with it during today's dailies, etc.

I'll take your advice and keep it in mind to look for dodge over parry. And every time I add/change gear, I look for ways to add stamina, etc.

Thanks for input

you should always be able to use Regal Twilight Opal - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=40031) over Defender's Twilight Opal - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=40032). You need to get your defense from 537 to 540. Switching your shield enchant to a +defense enchant would do it. If you get a chance do a h vh or h OS run and get your defense legs.

I would add glyph of vengence instead of SotR. Lay on Hands is also a good minor glyph. Add 1 point in improved judgement and you only need 1 point in spiritual attunement and 1 in benediction (to get the 10 point talents). That will let you put more in conviction/crusade.

Wow, after reading your response (and before entering the game today), I was wondering what you were talking about with regard to my defense rating. I knew I was at 540+ (and have been a while) so I logged into the game and discovered that the equipment manager had set my dps legs in my prot setup! In any event, I changed it back to reflect my true tanking outfit ;) Thank you for commenting, but now my gear is accurate and is worth tank criticism ;) I'll explore the talent change suggestions a little later today.
