1) Pick up the Unwavering Leggings which have more armor, stamina as well as has Shield Block Value which can help your threat.
2) Run Steam Vaults for the Devilshark Cloak.
3) For bracers, pick up the Bracers of Ancient Phalanx which has more defense, stamina, and expertise rating.
4) Enchant your weapon. Also, put a better enchant on your shoulders (scryer/aldor rep one) and 150 HP to chest.
Just some quick thoughts.
