Hey Tankspot Community!

I collected a shitload of Triumph Badges and try to gear up for ToC10/ToC25 and Hardmodes to become better because i desperately wanna tank ICC!

This is my currently Equipment..

could be a bit strange cause im swapping between Survivability and Blockrating Equipment.

Im pretty new to tanking so i dont really know what Stats are the best!
I always aim above 540 Def, try to maximize Health and maintain a bit hit while trying to get some expertise, but i dont know much about dodge and parry. For Heroics i always wear Full Blockrating Stuff to maximize Damage/TpS even if i have to wear lower ilevel stuff.

However, i dont know how to spend my badges the most effective way so i made 3 Itemsets and compared them:

Didnt enchant anything but the defense enchants so i could see how to gem without overcapping def or hit too much. Everything will get enchanted once i bought them.

The second second is currently my favorite but tanking theory is new to me. Whats your advice?

This isn't the best way to do this. Check out Warcrafter.net - it lets you sandbox gear sets and see what the stats would be when actually equipped on your toon.

When I actually looked up your armory, it appears as if you're only lvl 72? Is that some sort of glitch? If not, you've got a lot of work ahead of you before you're ready to tank Icecrown.

1. Get to 80
2. Maximize your professions and make yourself a set of tempered saronite gear
3. Run heroics and naxx pugs to glom as many badges as you can and start gearing with them and save those badges.

Ideally, for icecrown, you'll want to be at least 40k health unbuffed with decent levels of avoidance and mitigitation as well as at least 26 expertise to be viable. It sounds like alot but you can probably make it with badge/crafted gear these days.

No this was one of my twinks, i updated my information, should work now. However, i still dont know which set to take.

The website I meant to reference was actually chardev, rather than warcrafter.

Throw the gear on and see which set comes up with the best numbers for you.

Your armory link is still verboten
