Prot Pally asks: Am I ready to Tank Heroics?
I've been farming emblems in Heroics with my Retribution Palla for a while now and have some reasonable DPS gear (5.4K GS). I was at the point where Emblems of Triumph could not really improve my DPS gear so started thinking more seriously about Tanking. There seems to be such a shortage of tanks. When I "look for group" and select just DPS, I need to queue for 12 to 20 minutes on my server. When I include tank as an option in LFG (you know, just testing....), I almost instantly get into a
heroic (at which point I leave the queue). The idea is to save my Emblems of Frost for DPS/Ret gear, and use my Emblems of Triumph to get my Tank/Prot gear up.
So, I've got my def cap to uncrittable (552, a bit too high) and have 32.5K HP unbuffed and 24K Armor.
Am I ready for Heroics? Am I being far too cautious? Should I just stop being such a p*ssy and get in there!?

Honestly? I'm a little scared of the responsibility.... ;-)
I've soloed some of the L70 instances in my Prot gear (GS=4.3K) to get more familiar with the abilities.
Are my gear/spec/enchants good enough? Any suggestions on must-have equipment or re-gemming would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance for any help!
