I think I am doing Ok, though sometimes I find myself falling behind in threat against our guilds OT on trash pulls but hes a gung ho pally and usually pulls the trash mobs, Im not too worried with trash pulls and such. My issue is gemming, should I be going for hit and expertise at this point or should i be going for more EH and mitigation? Any help is appreciated, This is my first time raid tanking as well and The guild wants me to MT. Should I be doing anything differently? Thanks in advace!
Your hit and expertise are certainly suffering. A Grim Toll would help your hit if you can convince your DPSers to pass one up, and then you can pick up the necessary expertise pieces and gem for it to bring it up a little. Conversely, if you nab a mark of norgannon (and honestly this is a bleh dps trinket, we have been giving it to tanks first) you can focus more on hit on your gear which is sometimes a little easier to come by. Remember that until you hit 26 expertise it is worth double in threat what hit is as it's removing both dodges and parries until that point.
Don't know why you used ap/stam in your chest instead of str stam, or even expertise stam with your current expertise rating. 2% threat is likely negligible and 10 parry is alright but not outstanding, again, you'd probably do better with +15 expertise on your gloves. Otherwise it looks like you're doing fine and just need to get some drops.
