I have no idea what I should pick up first to be honest...The stame trinket looks awesome...plus im tired of my brewfest trinkets, even though they give 170 stam the 200 itemlvl just bugs the shit out of me. Although the t10 set bonuses for DK tanks this time around are nice compared to the joke t9 bonuses..the non tier plate look crappy as hell for DKs..Any advice on what I should get? Do you know what your gonna grab first?

My armory for reference:
The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Moon+Guard&n=Khrosis)

I would recommend you get the Black Heart from reg TOC 5 man. It has about 50 less stam but it has an effect which grants my pallie tank nearly 5% reduction off physical hits.

With emblems go for the cloak, i havent seen a good one drop in ICC 25 till the third wing. The diffrence between them is badge cloak has bonus armor and the one that drops has parry.

The tanking belt is also very nice, perhaps BiS? This should also be a consideration.

I personally went with the Frost Gloves (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=50978) because...well they are pretty amazing. Two sockets to start with are great, and since I'm a BS I added on another one. Big upgrade for me from the 226 Gloves from pre 3.3. The cloak is definately a nice one and I do plan on picking it up, but when you are looking at an upgrade, don't so much focus on the item level of the equipment for gear score...it's about what is going to be the best replacement for you at the time.

I always go for best upgrade over itemlvl, hence why I still have the two stam trinkets over the several situational trinkets i have of higher itemlvl( i just said it kind sorta bugged me. *shrugs* ).

As for the Blackheart trinket, I have it but even with the extra armor proc I still seemed better off with the extra stam.

I'm also at a loss. I had the full intention of picking up the skeleton key but the use effect seems...... well what's below sub-par? the best bang for your buck looks to be the belt, and the cloak is a huge upgrade for me as well. I'll probably end up holding out for Satrina's scarab and pick up the belt....
