I'm about to hit 80 on my Paladin, and my guild (a bunch of friends IRL) want me to get geared up so I can tank ICC10 and get Kingslayer title.

Being a fresh 80, what gearscore should I be looking at and what's the quickest way for me to get geared up to the appropriate level?

Sorry if this is a little too noob, thanks in advance.

BTW, I'm the only one out of all my friends who hasn't completed ICC. They just want me to get used to tanking in raids before Cata. :D

The recent patch makes most guides outdated, but i still suggest reading this article. it may give you ideas.
The most important difference is that defense is no longer a visible stat, and you reach "uncrittable" via talents.
but most other things are still valid, at least until Cataclysm hits.

Oh, and also, congratulations on your group of friends. It's nice of them to help you catch up to play with them in the new expansion.

If you go to http://www.wow-heroes.com after entering your realm and character name will display a bar that will give you an idea of what current raids you can play with your current gear, gems, enchants, etc.
