Ok I just want to make sure that I am on the right path.
Here is my armory.

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

I have the recipe for Saronite sword breakers Saronite Swordbreakers - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47570)
and will be upgrading to them soon.
Any and all advice appreciated.

Resilience and defence rating do pretty much the same thing. They will combine to make you uncrittable.

Due to using all the PvP gear you are almost uncrittable without any of those defence gems or enchants.

Using PvP gear isn't a new idea, we used to do it way back in S2 because the massive amounts of stamina on the gear.

What you do is sacrifice huge levels of avoidance. Your dodge parry and block are way below what it should be.

If your PvP gear is the best tank gear you can or want to get, I would research the combination of resilience and defence that will get you around 540. I can't remember the conversion off the top of my head. After you reach that you can gem for things like dodge parry and stamina.

It's not optimal but it can get the job done until you can get some "real" tanking gear.

I plan to upgrade, this is just what I have to work with at the moment.
If I add the Saronite Swordbreakers it should push me over the Defense cap, then I was going to add a few Stam gems to replace a few Def gems.
How does my talent tree and glyphs and enchants look?
How far from being able to do Heroics do you think I am?
I have been elected (not by choice) to be my guilds main tank so I am trying to be the best I can for them. I was doing mainly PVP before they wanted me to do this.

you would be fine for doing heroics/naxx10 but replace the pvp gear asap. there are lots of upgrades in toc5 you could get.

main problem with your enchants is helm should have the enchant from argent crusade revered and you should have 40 stamina to bracers

I'd go ahead and do some heroics it should work out fine.

Talents and glyphs look fine.

Like I said you are over the defence cap already because of the resilience from the PvP gear. You should definitely socket some stamina gems right away :)

It's a shame to see great pieces like your wrists boots and belt full of defence gems :D

If the calculator I used from TankingTips.com - A guide to tanking as a Warrior in World of Warcraft (http://www.tankingtips.com) is correct you only need 447 defence skill to be uncrittable. So you are already way over.

Just keep that in mind and start hitting up ToC normal and heroic to fill in the rest of your gear. Or spend Conquest/Triumph badges as required.
