    [Cata] Pre-Raid Gear

    I was doing some rummaging for pre-raiding tank gear, and came up short. So I threw together a quick list. Keep in mind that this isn't intended to be "BIS" pre-raiding gear and I'm not the type to maintain that kind of list. Just trying to get a sense of options.

    Ravening Slicer is a +agi weapon with haste and mastery. You can probably find a weapon with better stats for tanking.

    I was going to pull this down in response to the other guide put up.
    http://maintankadin.failsafedesign.c...rb_v=viewtopic

    But this list still addresses some of the pre 346 quest rewards which are omitted on vexryn's list. And so I'll leave it I guess. As I mentioned earlier, not looking to maintain this, I put it up only because there was nothing else at the time. If there is something omitted on this list, but it is on vexryn's I wouldn't worry too much.

    Saw this in trade today - appears to be a random drop from your back - might be nice for a comprehensive list but I think most would rather grind rep then pay 17k...
