I just hit the 5.64% increased dodge/parry/etc. and the 5.64% decreased chance to be crit and whatnot. Like I said, I'm at roughly 25K health with frost presence on, and I believe 23K armor...What now? Should I be boosting stam or threat generation or anything? I think I'm ready for heroics, but then again a couple thousand HP ago I was kicked from a heroic in favor of a druid with 27k life.

Am I doing ok? Should I just worry about farming reputation for enchants and doing heroics for marks?

Not sure if this site automatically puts up armory links for the character that you post with, but here it is...

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

Edit: Looks like it's not updated my latest gear, nor does it show the effects of frost presence, so I suppose you'll have to take my word for it.

You've done pretty well getting to def cap with that gear, but I'd suggest no-one is likely to choose you as a tank with all the greens on.
I'd suggest running as dps and picking up a few more items, I know it sounds stupid but people are probably not going to trust you unless you replace those greens.
Check out wowhead or rawr so you can see what are easy upgrade paths from quests/dungeons etc.

Oh also your blood tanking spec is pretty terrible, take a look at something cookie-cutter and work from there. For example you have DW talents but use a 2H weapon.

Dump that weapon and get a Titansteel Destroyer (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=41257) made, it will last you a looong time as well as give you some much needed +hit. Find a JC and get them to make Titanium Earthguard Chain (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=56500) and Titanium Earthguard Ring (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=56497).

Run some heroics either as tank or dps, gather some badges and buy Chained Military Gorget (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=40679) Waistguard of Living Iron (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=40689) Sigil of the Unfaltering Knight (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=40714) Valor Medal of the First War. (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=40683)

Bracers of Dalaran's Parapets (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=40734) are BoE and bought with valour badges, they sell for 500-800g on my server now, ask in /trade for some prices.

Your blood spec is all over the place, go for a straight cookie-cutter build like 54/8/9 (http://profiler.wowhead.com/?profile=us.proudmoore.vellaa#talents). I prefer Blood overall, but if you are gearing up through heroics you'll have an easier time going Frost, more AoE and snap threat. Check my Frost spec in the previous link.

You're using Glyph of Bone Shield even though you aren't Unholy >.< For Glyphs try: Rune Strike, Death Strike, Vampiric Blood.

Thanks for the advise on the spec! That's the kind of thing I really needed. When I specced I pretty much just filled out what I saw was good for tanking and then took other things that I liked.

Oh and the glyphs were kind of an accident. I had unholy spec on that tab before and didn't pay attention/got lazy when I respecced.

Thanks for the advice :)
