[Cata] Prot Warrior Gear list
Not sure If I would like to make this a dedicated guide or what, but maybe just a source of reference for people that are gearing up and or raiding and want to find a base of what to look for.
In this list I show what gear you should be looking for before going in and progressing on raid content in Cataclysm. You will see that all of the gear in this list is either 346 + , In my opinion you should have all 346's + to help your raid group out instead of having those pesky 333's mixed in. I'm not saying that 333`s are bad, But you should only have 1-2 at the most.
Also you should not have any PvP gear on at all while tanking, Its a waist and you will usually be called out on it every time someone looks at you while you are tanking. So to save you the embarrassment don't wear any PvP gear.
Now on to the list.

Well Thats the list I compiled together to give other Protection Warrior Tanks , and or tanks in general a form of reference while gearing up for Raids. I may have a Pre-Heroic Raid list coming soon, Just want to see what the feedback from this list is before I post it.
Feedback is welcomed , Would like to know if I'm missing anything , or some info is incorrect.
Pre-Heroic Raiding List:
BiS Tanking Gear Including Relic's and 2-handed Weapons!
Protection Warrior Gemming/Spec/Enchants: Coming Soon!
This may be added to this list or have its own thread, But like my Pre-Heroic raiding list, I would still like to see some feedback on it before posting this.
Re: [Cata] Prot Warrior Gear list
I agree. I use it myself. Too bad it looks ridiculous lol.
Also, none of those links work in tapatalk. Not sure about on a PC, it might just be tapatalk. Tho I have seen links that do work on it.
