Is Tristie ready?
Hi everyone, this is my first post incase you hadnt noticed, im a long time reader, but just haven't posted before now
I recently rerolled warrior after getting very bored of my mage and i'm kind of unsure of whether or not im quite ready to tank heroics. (CE and Mechanaar heroics to be specific).
Here's a link to my profile
A few things to note:
- Im Arms at the moment and don't really want to specc prot until im 100% sure that i'm ready to tank heroics (50g respecc cost... )
-My mage's ex-guildies were kind enough to let me gear up a bit in karazhan, so i have access to most of the gear in there that their tanks dont need.
- I'll take THIS SPEC if my gear is concidered good enough (any suggestions are more than welcome, though )
Any crits / suggestions are very apretiated!

Reason: oops, spelling errors!
Started running heroics few days ago and in my opionion you should be just fine, although some more avoidance wouldn't hurt. Heroic mechanar is really nice place to go since you gain good amount of badges, great tanking sword and Sha'tar reputation for new shield.
About spec, move those 3 points from Imp. Revenge to Imp. Sunder armor. As for Devastate, I don't think it would do more threat than sunder with your current gear, so that might be wasted point.

I've never been a fan of Imp. Revenge. It *can* save your ass from time to time, but it also leads to stuns, which leads to less mobility, which leads to spikier rage generation. Myself, I'd pull the 3 points from Tactical Mastery and the 3 points from Imp. Revenge, and put the rest into Imp. Bloodrage, Imp. Sunder, and Imp. Heroic Strike.
Personally, I always go 2/2 Imp Bloodrage, because I find that my opening rhythm is way off if I can't hit Bloodrage and Shield Slam right away. It's pretty silly, and I could just adjust a bit and free up a talent point...but I just can't wean myself off it. *shrug*
Some people swear by Imp. Revenge, but I'm not one.
You shouldn't be stance dancing enough as a prot warrior to need Tactical Mastery, IMO, but it depends somewhat on what you do outside of simply tanking. I grind with SBV gear on, so I don't chance stances much, even while grinding.
Devastate isn't needed for you for tanking, but it's a somewhat helpful soloing ability, unless you would prot grind with a 2hander.
Your gear is great for heroics. 12k HP/12k Armor is a usual baseline for starting out.
Ok, thanks very much guys, i'll probly change my specc a bit then, after reading a bit more about devestate, solo grinding isn't a problem for me(what with having a mage to grind with ) so like you said maybe i don't really need devestate and TM.
