    Awesome guide!

    Were missing Burning Skull Pendant and Reinforced Titanium Neckguard though, at least the burning skull would go high in that list afaik

    And Gal'darah's Signet which is quite easily obtained in Gun'Drak

    Hero's Surrender is from 10 man Patchwerk, Wall of Terror is from 25 man Kel'Thuzad. Also you didn't add any shield enchants hehe.

    Good list though. It's weird how a 10 man shield is better itemized than a 25 man one.

    Thank you very much for this guide its a great help to determine when to pass and when to need on an item.

    But I did miss some nice items I have been lucky enough to have drop into my arms:
    Back: Shadow of the Ghoul: 154 armor, 56 STR, 56 Sta, +38 Def, +29 SB, +27 BV (source: Naxxx25? - think it was a trahs drop)
    Link: Shadow of the Ghoul - Item - World of Warcraft

    Trinkets: Seal of the pantheon (L78, Eq:+65 def. Use: Inc. Armor +3570/20sec) - Drop in Normal HoL from Loken. (Very good help in gettnig to the cap)
    Link: Seal of the Pantheon - Item - World of Warcraft

    And I did not see you mention the nice Belt "enchant": Get the socket buckle from a BS, pretty cheap mats for an extra socket in your belt.
    Link: Eternal Belt Buckle - Spell - World of Warcraft

    Keep up the good work, thanks.

    Regards
    Wolftank
    Edit: Figured out how the links where working, so updated with links to the items.

    Rune of Repulsion

    This trink can be pretty useful after diminishing returns

    No, Hero's Surrender is most certainly from 25-man Patchwerk, as shown here: Patchwerk - NPC - World of Warcraft

    Tempered Saronite Breastplate

    I noticed that the BOE crafted Tempered Saronite Breastplate - Item - World of Warcraft is not listed in the chests section

    Thought this might help.

    I thought that this might help people out to get a feel for what this thread illustartes as the "best" tanking gear in the form of a stats representation. It is a link to a Wowhead made gear list of the #1s (#1s and #2s in the case of rings and trinkets).Item Comparison Tool - World of Warcraft You can view it in a 3D model viewer to see the set as well. This is for myself (Prot warrior) if you are a DK or Pali, you can take out the 1h+Shield and Gun, rescpectively, and add in what you feel to be the best tanking items for your class.
    This set does not take into consideration a lot of things. Any bonuses from your race, bonuses from your class (spec or inherent), or the bonsus from enchants or gems. With that said there is a bonus defense rating of 574 on the gear which leaves roughly 115 defense rating (given that you have 400 defense skill from being lvl 80 and that 1 defnese skill = 4.92 defense rating '140 x 4.92 = 688.8 defense skill' and in turn 689 - 574 = 115) to reach that magic 540. In my opinon an easily obtainable number from the enchants and gems.
    Hope this is useful to others.

    I know i might have missed someone asking this question, But some of the gems you listed i have no idea where u got them (maybe PTR?) I'm a JC and really the zircon, Eye of Zul, Dreadstones or Ametrines. I could just be stupid but they aren't in the game.

    Right here? Apart from tier set pieces of course. Warriors and paladins to a pretty large extent want the same stats after all.

    They are in the game files but are not available to players yet as far as I know. They'll probably be put in later, with the release of one of the new raids.

    First wanted to say that this is a great guide wish I had noticed it when I started gearing up at 80.

    Couple suggestions I dont see the 'Defender's Code' under the trinket section, perhaps it did not make the list but I quite like the armor boost it offers.

    Under weapon enchants you might want to include Accuracy argueably the best threat enchant atm.
    Also the new weapon chain is not bad well your gearing up, true not many mobs disarm but its +hit is still nice.

    Good list though. It's weird how a 10 man shield is better itemized than a 25 man one.

    Actually, Hero's Surrender is from 25 man Patchwerk, not 10. Its ilvl is 213, meaning it has to be from 25 man. Yes, it is better than the KT shield, which is ilvl 226, which is a bit weird, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Personally, i would rather have Hero's, but others might rather have WoT.

    Looking at the list, there are a few items and enchants missing. For instance, 22 Def to chest enchant is great. Both of the necks from the Malygos key quests aren't listed, the heroic one probably being the best in the game.

    Overall, this is an amazing guide that has helped me and probably tons of other tanks throughout naxx and such. It could use some updating though

    perhaps you may want to take another look at the Steelweave back enchant, I did myself when a guildie showed me the difference was only +4 rating, which doesnt even equal a whole point of defense, and costs nearly 300g LESS than Titanweave, so for tanks who dont necessarily NEED less than 1 point of whole Defense, Steelweave is quite an attracive option

    Chest Enchant

    if not already posted...

    under the Chest Enchants:
    Greater Defense (189p)
    +16 Defense Rating

    should read:
    Greater Defense (189p)
    +22 Defense Rating

    link is correct, great reference tho cheers.
