Right at the release of the new xpac, I respecced to Prot from Fury. My question is: what would be the minimum accepted stats to begin tanking the heroics. I ran UK a couple weeks ago and wiped big time on the first 2 trash pulls, lol. Since that time I have upgraded a few pieces but still dont want to waste anyones time if not yet equipped. I will post the link to the armory profile and would appreciate any advice as to what stats could use most improvements before I start applying enchants.
To be fair, after the first 2 guys in UK the trash is bunched up funny and if you aren't familiar you can end up pulling 3 guys, 4 guys, or 10 guys =O.
Gear wise, you need more defense. You can either go the enchant route + belt buckle with defense gem. Or you can grind regular HoL for the +defense trinket. If you get a healer you really trust though, you can survive heroics. I actually did my first 4 with the same stats you have: Culling, Nexus, UK, DtK (only wiping to people not moving on Keri and trying to do the King Dred achievement heh).
Apart from reading tha guide,I would suggest a few things here.
1.Get the trinket out of Reglar HoL,and relace the Medallion.
2. Make ure you have everything enchanted. This includes getting even the cheap leg armor kit, an geting a buckle for your belt,and getting the shoulder enchant fro either son's of Hodir, or from scryer/aldor rep. Also get the helm enchant from Argent Crusade, orif you don't have the rep. go back to CoT and get the one from them.
