    Looks good, i would use this one until you have all slots done and then create new thread.

    I'm surprised it ranks:

    12. Tattered Castle Drape (11908)
    Source: World Drop (BOE)

    13. Cloak of the Enemy (11368)
    Source: Heroic Nexus

    in that order. It's putting more emphasis on block value than the avoidance gain from the defence?

    These are the default numbers Loot-Rank is using.

    Str: 40
    Stam: 78

    Armor: 6
    Defense: 80
    Dodge: 75
    BV: 45
    BR: 15
    Parry: 70
    Hit: 30
    Expertise: 60

    Honestly, since I'm ussually doing this on work subsidized wow time I am just looking for the simplest way to get some ratings quickly. I'd agree with you though, as an Ulduar tank I try to ignore BV completely, I sure wouldnt give it a 45 rating. Its pretty easy to change the order and rating numbers but i would look to people better at math to come up with a good stat weight system.

    Another instalment. Slight change in the order of ranking but nothing earch shattering.

    Yet another reason to grind Wyrmrest Accord reputation: Breastplate of the Solemn Council is easily obtainable and will last until you get to wear purple for that slot. The T7(10) chestpiece is available for 10-man badges and is well worth the effort. Certainly the best you can get unless you do 25-man raiding.

    Yet again we see the effective health and the avoidance enchant being almost equal when it comes to raw survival. If you have problems reaching crit immunity, getting +16 Defense Rating on your chestpiece is a good idea.

    Super Health (1950)
    +275 Health

    Powerful Stats (1830)
    +10 All Stats

    Greater Defense (159p)

    Flamewatch Bindings should be up there for tank bracers should they not?

    I don't see this mentioned on the Waist list and it looks like it would be a good fit.

    Stormtempered Girdle

    I added a belt buckle and a +41 stamina gem to this piece and it was an upgrade for me from

    Waistguard of Living Iron

    Any thoughts?

    Patch 3.1: New BOE crafted boots are best-in-slot for survival AND offers great threat stats aswell.

    I know I'm repeating myself here, but let's just underline how nice Wyrmrest Accord reputation is for plate tanks: Sabatons of Draconic Vigor is available at probably the best blue boots around. The BOE crafted epics are kinda lackluster, and they're certainly not something I'll pay good gold for.

    I know there is much to read here, I'm sorry for asking but other than the clutch of fortification (if that's the correct name) from the triumph vendor - what 2nd ring should I get for my war?

    thank you in advance, still reading the lsits...

    p.s. I haven't completed ToC 10 man yet, though we are hitting it all week, and I haven't been through any 25's except for OS 25 and tempest keep 25 I believe.

    And I am currently gearing up for tank work in my raiding guild, I am lvl 80 and most of my gear is lvl 232-245 but I am looking for a 2nd ring that will work until I can get the better stuff from the higher level runs, icc 25, ulduar 25, etc

    Great guide, demog. If you'd like to find tanking gear that is post 3.1, you can find an updated database at TauntMaster: The World of Warcraft Tanking Resource It has tanking gear up to & including ICC and is searchable by instance or slot.
