    Well, for a start your defence is far far to low - you need 540 (535 for heorics) at level 80. Also, you're still using a number of lvl 70 epics which which can probably be replaced by comparable lvl 80 blues that have WAY more defence and other nice stats on them.

    Have a look at this guide to see what gear upgrade options you should be aiming for: http://www.tankspot.com/forums/f200/...gear-list.html

    You need to check the above link...why do people think they can just ding 80 and jump into heroics? Please take the time to get uncrittable, or at least know where to go so you are working towards the drops you need to help you along.

    As for an easy heroic to start out, I would try Drak'Tharon - it's pretty easy, and with a Priest and a Mage you have CC for everything.

    how is it someone with 8 posts is more helpful and less condescending?

    i figured i could jump in because it was explained to me that the cap was 540 for naxx AND i had no problem with instances to that point, clav in a forum where people ask for help and critiques save the unecessary comments and be helpful like bulk

    Because somebody with more posts has seen much more of it?

    The defense minimum for heroics is 535 (5 defense per max level of mobs), and if you had read the forums more you would know that you would have problems if you were crittable.

    I'm sorry if you didn't think my post was helpful, I thought it was.
