Well if you don't mind farming reg hall of lightning for a bit you can get Seal of the Pantheon and you can get Daunting Handguards from ah. That would help you a lot and if worst comes to worst you can buy a flask.

use this guide to help you get there, when you start to get nax gear you will see decreases in your defense, and may have to collect some new gear before it becomes usable.

early tanking gear is itemised with huge amounts of defense on a few pices, nax gear (and up) has low/moderate amounts of defense on everything, so finding a balance between nax gear, and starting gear will be hard, just dont get discouraged, all that gear will be usable when you get enough

i started doing heroics with 530 DEF rating. Get a good geared healer behind you and farm the dungons that drop good def gear. also rep gear really helps a lot as well

Wyrmrest Accord has three great peices of armor for you when you hit revered. The draconic plate sabatons, the breastplate of the solemn council, and the cloak of peaceful resolutions. These three items alone gave me a big push into tanking.

Beg/borrow to get out of your Karazhan chest piece. Get crafted or rep chest piece.

Kara chest that requires level 77 :P It's an armoury bug that shows a lot of BoE world drops as coming from karazhan. I had the same thing when i was levelling my warrior and used some BoE shoulders and legs.. they both said they came from kara despite requiring lvl 72+.
