I was wondering if my gear was good enough to tank 10man onyxia


I'll have missing epic gems tonight before the raid, as well as hopefully replacing the helmet and hands with two more Wrynn pieces

Wow-heroes.com puts you where Ony10 is optimal for you to raid for upgrades. So yeah. I'd say you where ready for it. But get your enchants done, and upgrade your gems to epic gems. Don't be a cheap-ass. :P

Some suggested changes:

Helm - Get your enchant from Argent Crusade (so get the tabard and work that rep), maybe upgrade the stam gem to epic (depends on how soon you are going to upgrade to http://www.wowhead.com/item=47677)

Shoulders - Regem with Dodge/Stam, Agi/Stam, Exp/Stam or pure Stamina (most will say pure Stamina). Work the Hodir rep to get the shoulder enchant (Def/Dodge) or go do some pvp to get honor for the stam/res enchant from the pvp vendors).

Cloak - okay, though Reg Halls of Reflection does drop a 219 cloak.

Chest - upgrade the gems to epic. maybe get the http://www.wowhead.com/item=47591 crafted.

Bracers - upgrade to the crafted http://www.wowhead.com/item=47570 they are pretty much the best bracers until you can get a drop in ICC10/25.

Gloves - upgrade to http://www.wowhead.com/item=48449. Enchant with Stam armor kit or Armor armor kit from LW.

Belt - Get http://www.wowhead.com/item=45825 or have http://www.wowhead.com/item=45551 crafted.

Legs - put in epic gems. Since it is a +9 bonus for matching sockets and you do need 1 red for your meta, I suggest using a Agi/Stam, Dodge/Stam or Expertise/Stam here and a Stamina.

Boots - try to farm http://www.wowhead.com/item=50207 from H Forge of Souls or get http://www.wowhead.com/item=45560 made which are better because of the sockets. Use the same enchant.

Weapon - Heroic Pit of Saron and Heroic Halls of Reflection both drop an upgrade. Enchant for this one find a Warrior Tank and ask, its either Blood Draining or Blade Ward I think.

Shield - Farm Reg Halls of Reflection, best non-raid shield drops in there.

Trinket - http://www.wowhead.com/item=47735 with the black heart is usually the best combo until you get more powerful trinkets.

As to what raids you can do. Onyxia 10, ToC 10, and Uld 25 is where Wow Heroes is suggesting for you to go. Once you do the upgrades I have suggested, you will be good for just about anything that people will let you do.

For your Frost I usually suggest for people to get the cloak first, but it is often personal preference. I know alot of people often go for the most expensive item first (i.e. the chest).
