I disagree with many rankings on this list. I hope people pick up Rating Buster and figure things out on their own.
Tanks: We like it rough.
I didn't see Weighted Throwing Axe on the list of ranged, but it's the best I have been able to get my hands on.
Weighted Throwing Axe (rare - WoWWiki - Your guide to the World of Warcraft)
Missing item: neck - Nexus War Champion Beads from the quest that begins with the Key that drops off of Sapphiron in Naxx 25
ditto on the throwing weapon the last person mentioned
I'm going to add Ulduar items to the list as they come to my attention, and I'm also going to remove most of the TBC items to make the list shorter.
Only tanking gear I've seen yet is the crafted belt, but it looks good so far
it looks better than the current gear but will probably be much worse than the actual drops
these appear to be the "welfare boe epics" that guilds with the instance on farm to people who dont have guilds or simply cannot get that 1 specific item to drop
except for the extra socket is the crafted one that much better than ablative ?
Are you going to fix the "Source: ???" Locations?
I think you missed out on this wonderful ring:
Woeful Band - Item - World of Warcraft
got it yesterday, unexpectedly :-)
Hey great guide.
It would be good if you updated the enchanting options - there are quite a number of upgrades all the way through now.
also interested on your thoughts re Block Value. It does not seem to rate that high in your calculations - but other guides are saying stack BV because it carries no diminishing returns.
Might want to add an asterisk that warrior tanks will probably want to pass on this one since Heroic Strike does not scale to weapon speed . Thus you will perform fewer HS's than you would w/ a faster weapon.

Thanks for this! It has been a great help.
I'm extremely blind or Shadow of the Ghoul - Item - World of Warcraft is missing. It's probably better than Cloak of Armed Strife maybe even Nerubhide not sure though.
I dont see in the list:
Void sentry legplates
They seem one of the best pre HC.
Nexus War Champion Beads where?
The enchants are outdated, the chest for example is +22 def rating, not 16.
and theres also the shoulder resilience/ap enchant you can buy with 30 stone keepers for the ones on tight budget.
