    Oh, I just realized you specified 10, I'd say you're good for either, but as a note: Some dipshit WILL tell you you're hard to heal.... always.... no matter what your gear looks like, you are hard to heal, always. No matter the content...

    Yeah I get that a lot but if they are a "Great Healer" They will learn to adjust, and if they can't I can go or they can. On WoW Heroes With my old gear before I decided to switch gems and enchants around it said 10man Was "Easy* which i know its not but i get it, And 25man ICC is where I should be. But I want to get the 264 and the 245 shield before I know i want to go do ICC 25

    Hi. Why do you start rotation with HT? If u charge in SS TC stack Dev don't bother with throw tbh. Also you seem fine gear wise but what about the other 9? Icc is a team effort you need all to be good geared but more importantly to be aware of movements and tactics. If so then get your arse in there and kill some bosses.
    Good luck.
    So long and thanks for all this fish

    Good gearing! Look at getting the frost belt, 27k armor is a little low; that should help get you closer to 30k..

    Essence of Gossamer(H AN), Black Heart (H TOC) and Corroded Skeleton Key (Frost) are better tanking trinkets for Effective Health.

    Ardent Guard (10m TOC Anub) has +448 Armor which is what I used for ages before getting the mace from ICC.

    You can try to get Barricade of Eternity from Malygos (EoE10) or Wall of Terror (KT - Naxx25) for a shield if having problems getting Forlorn Barrier.. or Splintered Door of the Citadel (N HoR) I think is an upgrade.. I had BoE for ages before getting Forlorn.

    I am not seeing a Red/Purple gem to get your Meta, get rid of the Hit/Sta and replace with a Dodge/Sta.. Which will give you that 2% Extra Armor.. You shouldnt need to gem for hit anyway.. Wrist enchant Armsmen is debatable, I just go +18 Sta but I'll leave that up to you..

    Should be throwing Demoralizing Shout up on mobs to reduce their damage as part of your rotation as well. Should also make sure you are using revenge/shield slam with multi mobs.. Especially now that Revenge hits a neighbor..

    Without seeing your spec thats all I really can offer.. Well Met!

    This Is My Spec, Its on my post guess its hard to see. http://www.wowarmory.com/talent-calc...12521030113321

    Yeah I have been trying to get my frost belt because i know It will be a huge upgrade going from a 226 to a 264 especially with 2 slots and available 3 with eternal belt buckle.. that's 3 stamina gems which will boost my health a lot.

    Bloodrage
    Charge
    Thunder clap
    Shield Slam
    Devastate x5
    Heroic Strike
    Shield Slam & Revenge when ever not on CD.
    SnB proce automaticly hit shield slam.
    Thunder Clap when Buff wears off.

    -- Multi --
    Bloodrage
    Charge
    Thunder clap
    Shockwave
    cleave
    Devastate/revenge when mobs start loosing threat.

    Hows that rotation??

    Also how do you know if a mob is loosing threat? I always never knew so I would have my finger on my number 1 key (taunt) while going threw my rotation.

    EDIT:

    I have the vivid eye of zul in there for some more threat and for the +12 Stam bonus.

    Your spec looks good.. I missed it 1st time..

    Get Omen(Threat Meter) and watch it while you tab through the mobs, if someone is catching up to you or beating you in threat throw Vigilance on them. If you already have done that; Shield Slam/Revenge/Concussion Blow should give you more TPS immediately and then continue to devestate..

    Dont focus on 1 Mob in packs, you have to watch more than 1 because it always seems to happen that the melee dps will hit the one you hit, while the ranged pick their own targets (annoying but happens)..

    If cooldowns are not important throw in Shield Block where you can before Shield Slam to get extra damage.. Extra dmg = extra threat.. Demoralizing Shout gives a minor(really) amount of threat but is important all the time regardless..

    Rotations should basically be the same for multi/single target exception being Cleave instead of Heroic Strike and the Tab-Devestating.. I usually throw up DemoShout right after Shockwave as they are all stunned.. Other than that Rotation looks on par.. In my experience some instances/packs are more difficult than others (AN harder than Nexus etc..) and some party members make it more difficult.. As someone else has said Warriors are playing with a built-in hard mode! .. Enjoy it!

    Glyphing HIT for Threat should not necessary, get your rotation right and threat will not be an issue but this gem slot is worth socketing for the bonus as you said, I have +defense/sta in mine as hit is not really a tank stat to be gemming for..

    Drop the vivid eye of zul for a zircon, and find a red slot with a +9 stam (or the best bonus of stam you can get) to put in a purple gem. Without this your meta gem does nothing for you. You don't need any hit for the fights you'll be tanking, and for the ones that require taunting, carry extra glyphs and use them when you need them.

    EDIT: Put the purple gem in the red slot in your legs for the best bonus currently. Either 10 dodge/10 agi/10 expertise and 15 stamina, up to you.
