Hi all

First post but long time stalker of these forums :) So I have tanked (read off tanked) Naxx a good few times, but I find I am lacking in stam since gimping it in favour of the 541 def cap. I am pretty much decked out in T/ with a bit of badge T8 (helm). Just wondering where I go from here to get the entry level required for Ulduar? Any hep is apreciated. Feel fee to look at my Armoury.

Yeah, bottom line is Ulduar still outgears you. There are a lot of upgrades you need first before Naxxramas would even be considered truly easy.

Look at yourself on wow-heroes and where it rates you and what raid dungeons would suit you.
WoW Heroes - World of Warcraft PvE character info & ratings (http://www.wow-heroes.com/)
Right now, only 10 man Naxxramas and 10 man Sartharion. It would consider you undergeared for even 25 man Naxxramas. With that in mind, the bulk of your upgrades may be found simply in heroics, like Lucinam was pointing out, to at least get you at the starter level.
What you need to do I think is to understand how to use online resources like wow-heroes, wowarmory, wowhead, ect. in order to gauge where you are and what upgrades are out there for you. Litterally go out to something like Wowhead: We've got more style than a fashion designer who knows CSS. (http://www.wowhead.com) and make yourself a shoping list of stuff like Lucinam did for you. Find your next few upgrades in each slot and where to get them and then work towards those goals.

You can tell a person they can buy a Fillet-o-fish at McDonalds, or you can teach them how find fish no matter where there are in World of Warcraft.

Yeah...you have tons of 200iLevel gear...which you should ideally be at least mostly 226 iLevel for Ulduar. I don't know what gearscore exactly you would need, but definately higher then your current getup. Heroics should be your best friend at this point even if it's the easy badges one. Hell I went every day running Nexus, Gundrak and CoS heroic and that's 15 badges right there (if you get the Infinite Corrupter in time in CoS) I agree with most of the upgrades that Lucinam mentioned, I would also run regular ToC if i were you for the Black Heart. No offense but I think you would get face rolled in HToC with 22k unbuffed health.

With 22k Unbuffed health, farm heroics for your emblems and spend them on your gear. It will give you a substantial increase in stats and allow you to start tanking H ToC 5 man, and Naxx 25. Once you are pretty much out of upgrades from those badges, then it is time to hit Ulduar.
