oh yeah that is one thing I forgot to mention.
As soon as you enter group, you could always say that you are a newly geared tank and for them to bear with you. Unless you get real jerks they will go with the flow.
Well i found a new guild when noone wanted to help me run heroics....once i joined this one got a healer who needed a lowly geared tank to run randoms with. Since then i got a number of upgrades....had enough badges for http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47678, http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47500, and also im helping a buddy farm mats for http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47592. So all and all im getting my rep up as well as my HP 30k, armor @ 23k and Def @ 550. Also changed up my spec to 15/3/53...having no problems keeping threat....even MT OS 10 last night. There MT had 32hp buffed where i was @ 38k HP buffed
Just wanted to give thanks to all you helped me!!!
