Hi Guys,
Just came back to wow after a year out. I have 33.9k HP UB and 547 defence, 23691 AC. You can see my full armoury if you like below.

The World of Warcraft Armory (http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Stormreaver&n=Ardnut)

My question is what am I geared for? I have been MT and cleared VOA 10, Ony 10, TOGC 10. I would like to 25 man versions of all these instances also, but don't know if I really have the gear for it. I'm getting badges together as much as I can from Daily HC and TOC5 HC every day. I was thinking of getting the Helm or tanking ring from Triumph badges and the tanking belt from Conquest badges? Any advise on how to gear up would be very much appreciated.

Regards
ardnut

You have okay gear, but your HPs are kinda low for 25 man versions I think. Getting epic gems, getting more stam (don't gem for any bonuses that are less tha +9stam, and even then I'd say only for meta requirements). B/c of low hps I'd also suggest stam to shield, and stam or armor to gloves, armor to cloak, blood draining once you get a better weapon.

Also: you should probably change your spec, I recommend:
Talent Calculator - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#LAM00fZhZMItrx0didIzsGo:dcrzom)

If you make those changes, and maybe find a better weapon if you can, then I'd say you'd be more than ready for normal 25 mans of all of the above listed (I say aim for around 35k-36khps for the normal modes).

Oh gear:
Belt: Indestructible Plate Girdle - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=45551)
Boots: Spiked Deathdealers - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=45560)
Chest: Breastplate of the White Knight - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47592)

^ All of the above are craftable, so it's really just a matter of money, but they are all very good upgrades for you. For helm: if you can't get the ony 25 man one, then yes, the badge helm is pretty good, some say better than the T9 245 helm, but I personally like my T9 helm! (lol I'm a stam whore and love that I can gem a +12 socket bonus for my meta and it thusly gives me 3 more stam than the badge helm).

Thanks for the advise aggathon. I've changed my spec to almost what you suggested, thanks for advise. I think I'm going to see what drops in TOC10 before I go and waste all that gold on crafting items. I will probably only be able to craft one of those items in the near future. I was planning on the breastplate of the white knight actually but didn't know the other two recipes even existed.

Thanks again

Why did you put 3 points in Cruelty when Aggathon (http://www.tankspot.com/forums/members/aggathon.html)'s spec said to put them in deep wounds? deep wounds will give a lot more threat then 3% crit.

Well basically I like seeing big crits, so that's why I did it and I bet the difference in threat generation is minimal. Unless you have some maths that proves me wrong? After all we are playing this game for enjoyment right?

I'm going to craft the chest and belt you suggested. Get the badge helm or ony helm and hope something nice drops in TOC10 for me.

Would I be geared well enough for Ulduar 10 now?
