    a few questions

    ive got the def cap down, with out trying im at 552.
    what i would like to ask is whats acceptable base avoidances for a pally tank?
    currently im at 28% dodge 20 % parry and 15% block but with my libram and talents and spells my dodge goes to 30% and my block shoots up to 75% with redoubt 44% with just holy shield up.

    and im having trouble keeping aggro off 6k+ dps in raids im wondering if its in my rotation because i believe my gear is fine but i could be wrong.

    is nmy gear i'm changing some enchants that ive read about on here

    please, any advice is welcome if you can!

    Post a link to your armory (if you're currently saved in other gear, link to your Wow-Heroes page so we can see the tank gear you were previously saved in), and tell us what kind of content you're doing.

    Since you're still worried about defense, I assume you're a relatively fresh 80, in which case avoidance is still something to keep in mind. Your current levels of avoidance are pretty high (higher than my Paladin), so I wouldn't worry about it anymore and you could certainly trade out some avoidance for more EH (stam or armor). Block is nice for tanking adds or heroics, but except for a few gimmick fights, is nothing a raider should be concerned with. For a raiding tank, block rating is useless and block value is a pure threat stat (a pretty nice one though).

    Again, an armory link would help us with determining the root of your aggro problems. Are you using the cookie cutter 53/18 Crusade spec? Are you using the Seal of Vengeance glyph?

    28/20 is more than fine. Worry more about stamina and armor than avoidance, especially if you are talking about tanking in Icecrown.

    I edited in a link to my gear, as you can see im 59-12
    i dont really remember my glyphs haha ive pretty much gotten everything outside of a raid
    im using the seal of vengance glyph now
    and im not worries no much about defense because i have a feeling it'll come with the gear upgrades since i only have one enchant that helps def rating
