Need some help getting back into the game
I need some help to get back into this wonderful game :)
First, I'll just say something about my WoW career. I started playing in the beta and once vanilla launched the first char I made was a undead priest. I leveld him to 60 in (what was at the time a good pace I think). and once I hit 60 I started raiding, I really fell in love with raiding, was the big passion of mine back then. I managed (together with an older friend) to start our very own raiding guild, I was kind of a nice officer while he was the guy you dread to have as a guild master and raid leader (screaming at you on vent that you suck and stuff like that, haha). I do think that that was needed back then to keep all 40 in raid in check.
Well, after some nice raiding, clearing almost all avalible content ( we just couldn't down the four horseman... damn I still hate them, haha). And tbc was released, my friend quickly powerleveled to 70 and starting shouting at the rest of the guild to get to 70 aswell. But most of us were pretty tired from raiding and I among others quit the game.
So here I am, a couple of years later, and I started playing again. This time I decided to roll a tank (I was always jelous of our tanks, being up and personal with all those huge and awesome bosses, while I just stood 4 hours staring at green bars :/ ). And I decided on a paladin tank because for me, that is still something pretty new, as i've never even played with a paladin before, let alone AS one :D.
Now, I've hit 80 and started grinding hc's, rep and leveling my professions. I want to tank endgame content, and good be among the best, if not in the world, then alteast on the server I'm playing on.
But, i'm having a hard time gettin gruops for anything, I know for a fact that I am a good tank, and I enchant/gem properly ( I read almost everything I can about paladin tanks and how to gear/spec and play them to their fullest). But all I get is this "lolz you don't have GS over xxxxx" or "WTF!? 36k hp." (shortly followed by a "you've been removed to gruop/raid).
What should I do? there is only one item i've got left at the triumph vendor to get (the 245 helm, using the t9 on atm) and other then that I can't get better gear outside of hc's, I need to raid to get it. I can't do VOA and hope for a drop (cause of "lol to low GS") and I'm not even allowed into toc pugs (which is kinda dumb isn't it? I mean, tier 9 was the best gear when TOC was the highest level of raid).
Is there anything I can do to improve my chances?
Anyone got some tips for someone who just feels lost in this GS crazy world? (OH and lets not forget about achiv's).
Any help is greatly appreciated :)

Try to get into a guild, also try crafting some tanking items. They are pretty easy to get now.
