    Need to read the site a bit more before asking this. Start with

    http://www.tankspot.com/showthread.p...101-The-Primer

    After you have made changes based on this post, see where specifically you are having problems. Being "Squishy" could be due to a lot of things, combat logs are really helpful in determining what is causing your deaths.

    The Primer is a good place to start

    1. Not enchanting is like giving up an entire gear slot or 2. Easily. Even the cheap version of the enchant is still pretty good.

    2. 43.3% block. You're squishy.

    3. Please, please, don't bump after 15 minutes. Tankspot isn't the WoW forums. Your post isn't going to get lost on page 37 after 2 minutes if it has zero repiles.

    Now do you understand why 43.3% block will make you a squishy tank? Understanding why 43.3% block will make you a squishy tank is more important than finding the right gems and enchants to use because it makes your use of those gems and enchants that much better.

    Are there still parts that don't quite make sense? There's a whole board here willing to help answer questions, once you put the time in to begin to understand the concepts. Tanking is almost overwhelming in how much there is to know. There are plenty of people here that will help guide.

    Don't be afraid to ask specific questions :-)

    Taunt is not to be used often. It should NEVER be part of your rotation. That's because mobs can become taunt-immune if taunted too many times too quickly.

    If a mob runs away from, taunt is a good tool, but it isn't needed normally. On a pull, whether it's a trash pack or single target, there are other options. HT for a single target, rend + TC for trashpacks.

    If you need to pull a single mob to you or a pack to you, Heroic throw (HT) works just as well as taunt and leaves taunt up incase someone pulls part of the pack.

    Do yourself a favor, and replace those Parry gems you have with 40 mastery. It doesn't seem like a big deal, but parry you should get from gear, NEVER from gems, because of diminishing returns.

    Oh, and reforge the dodge on your second trinket to mastery.

    Not strictly true. While you don't want pure parry gems, 20parry/20mastery in red slots with tanking socket bonuses will give you more survaiblity than pure 40 mastery. Mastery is clearly better than parry, but not by such huge amounts that 20 mastery is > than 20 parry + socket bonus.

    Yeah, sorry. It was late at night, and I forgot about the parry/mastery thing. I meant don't use pure parry gems. Thanks for clarifying.
