Looks good to me although I'm gonna have one heck of a time figuring out what I want for the 4pc (18 sec shieldwall w00t!).
As for other pieces the tanking ring I did grab as the only other one I can obtain is from Chimaeron or hope that the Conclave of Winds drops something useful for me (of the Rockslab).
Although if you want to make some killer money you could waste VP on the Boots and sell them on the AH (They are BoE).

Should I really be robbing our healers/ dpsers from a helm/ shoulder upgrade considering it will be a downgrade (oh the mastery lost) for me?
Is the 4-p set bonus THAT important on hard modes? (mind you our guild is a rather casual one and all/most hardmodes (at least for now) will be done in 10-man setting due to lack of high quality dpsers/healers)
I think you can peacefully wait for your healers/damage dealers to be decently stuffed to pick up the next t11 pieces.
@Reev : Thanks.
Nerf Rock, paper is fine
personally im going to get the chest last after gloves and legs.. the stat upgrades over the JP chest just dont seem that terribly exciting. in the meantime, i intend to pick up the crafted chest.. which leads me to this question. have any of you considered the DPS chest over the "tanking one". seems to me, the mastery on the DPS chest is infinitely preferable to the parry on the crafted one.
Should you wait for a 50% increase in your shield wall duration? I guess the question is really what is your role? Are you generally the OT that swaps to DPS and back as needed or the MT?
Are you getting close to running heroics?
Is your survivability an issue?
If there isn't a pressing need, it might be more benefiical to the raid as a whole to wait. But if you're the MT and pushing progression, and sometimes you're not the last one up, I'd go for at least before the healers.
Any single DPS output from the t4 bonus isn't going to be as valuable to the raid as a whole as even once needing the extended duration of SW.
We're not at the point of working for server/world firsts, so gear is accessible enough to the DPS that you should have plenty of DPS. Take it before them.
As for healers - if their 4pc is good, then if you're not too concerned, it probably is worth waiting for them to grab it since they'll likely be utilizing their 4 pc every fight, whereas SW will be for that one time per night.
