    Different gear sets question

    I apologize for the noobish question.

    I'm a recent dps warrior converted to tanking for guild heroics, 10mans, and soon 25 mans. This site has been invaluable in the amount of information I've been able to find regarding tanking. I've come up with almost as many questions as I've seen answers though, and one continues to haunt me.

    I'm pretty sure I understand the concept of having different gear sets for EH, Avoidance, and Threat in theory but I was wondering if anyone could show me this in practice.

    Also, any ideas how I can post 2 different gear sets here? I'd like to show you all what I've come up with on my personal sets and see if you agree/disagree, or any suggestions you can provide.

    Thanks in advance!

    i dont have any suggestions as far as what you should use for your sets but if you want to post two different gear setups you could use chardev.org its a neat site that lets you browse all available gear and equip it you can even gem and enchant it how you want...hours of fun

    Thanks for the reply, Tnar.

    It's not so much what I could do with my sets, as much as, examples of what others do with theirs. I'm curious to see an example such as "This is my avoidance set, my threat set, and my EH set" The theory behind it is obviously sound, but i was wondering if I could see it in practice.

    Thanks again, I'm looking at that Chardev.org site and as soon as I receive my email confirmation I'll post my sets and see if you guys think i'm on the right track.

    Actually, yes, Dizzy. Thank you very much. That gives me a decent idea of how to divide gear.
