New 90 Paladin Tank: Catching up?
Hello. So, I'm late to this particular party. My first 90 (http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...acallah/simple) hit 90 just last week or so ago and I'm not sure what the fastest or smartest way to proceed forward is. The last time I played (Wrath), there was a pretty clear progression (Rep Gear, lvl 80 normal modes, Crafted gear -> Heroics -> Raids, with ToC (Normal) and the Icecrown 5 mans giving an avenue to get around some of the heroics or earlier raids.
This time around, it seems like there's a hundred different options that are all open and I'm not sure what's the smartest or fastest move. I can grind rep/dailies for faction rep. There seem to be about 2 pieces per faction, generally available at revered. I can grind scenarios and hope I get a few lucky drops at the end. I can run heroics, where it seems like most things that drop are an upgrade there as well. World bosses are only 1/week, but I've gotten loot 2/3 times from there. And then the Isle of Thunder stuff which I'm not even sure what all that entails.
So, am I best served by grinding rep? Running Scenarios non stop? Or does the Isle of Thunder trump all? Is there even stuff for me to be digging into in the IoT or is it designed for raid geared characters from the previous tiers?
Last, probably silly question: I've got a high enough iLevel to be tanking Heroics, but I haven't really spent the cash to start gemming / enchanting stuff yet (thinking most of this will be replaced relatively quickly- will probably enchant the boots as soon as I get to the AH). What's the expectation for tanking a heroic?
Sorry to be asking all these questions, but it's either here or trade chat as the guild I'm in is very small and (mostly) inactive. Thanks for your help!
