I was in Ulduar not to long ago, but I seemed to be taking alot of damage, so I am wondering: Is my gear ready for Ulduar 10?

It should be alright, the only thing by looking at your gear is that you seem to lack some EH (effective health) but you have a lot of avoidance (you got worse gear than me, but equal in dodge/parry). A few things I suggest you do though:

You got 100 defense rating too much over the cap. While defense isn't necessarily a bad stat after the cap, you're health is lacking and it's better to spend some time and energy on getting that up. For example enchanting your chest with +275 health and the shield with +18 stamina will help there. Also you could run TotC normal for the Black Heart (+126 stamina) and replace the Oxynia Talisman with that since parry is a worse stat than dodge. Also, try to level up Blacksmithing as fast as you can since two extra +30 stamina gems will help quite a bit.

But really, your gear is overall better than Naxx25 which is more than enough to tank Ulduar 10. Know that there are a lot of variables involved such as unlucky strings of avoidance, how good your healers are and how long a fight progresses to put extra strain on them so don't sweat too much.

I do have the brewfest trinket sitting in my bank aswell(170 stamina). So should I just use that instead of Onyxia's or should I go for The Black Heart?
