A few questions concerning my gear...
Hello. I have a few questions about my gear, but first, a little background. I have been in my current guild for about a year now. I joined as a Holy Paladin and raided all the way up until we started SSC/TK. At this point I encountered "Healer Burnout" and quit raiding to work on alts. Amazingly enough, this little Warrior alt, has become my new main.:) I love tanking. It has put a whole new spin on the game for me. It has even gotten me into leading Karazhan raids as well. People say I am good at tanking and at raid leading. But I have some questions which I will move on to now.
The World of Warcraft Armory
This is my Armory. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. As you can see, I have some Kara Epics, and a couple of the new badge rewards. It is quite obvious that I need new shoulders. My guild is trying to help me get T5 ones off of VR. And I also have King's Defender with Executioner on it for threat.
1. How could I improve my threat generation without taking to big of a defensive hit? As of now I can tank heroics just fine. But in a tougher raid situation, my threat output is not enough usually. Off-Tanking Gruul (Taking the slaps), means having Hunters MD to me. As I said before, a lot of people in my guild have raided more than this character. They do a good bit of DPS.
2. How far would this gear take me? As I said before, my guild is trying to help me get T5 shoulders. I understand I won't be waltzing into Hyjal anytime soon as MT, but could I, with this setup MT High King or Gruul? What about Magtheridon or Lurker? How far could I go you think?
3. Are there any obvious upgrades that I should shoot for other than new shoulders? I am 38 badges away from The new badge chestplate. Anything else I should go for?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
