Upgrade Advice

Just got my mace and shield which i'm very happy with!

Been trying to get maidens neck for over a year, no luck. I personally want to get the ZA bear boss boots http://www.wowhead.com/?item=33191 then i'm going for the 1st chest shoulders, 3rd chest ring and at some point the helm from hex, but we're not kiling him yet (lack of AoE healers, always have 1+ pally healers).

Would really like some persuasion on what badge items to get next, i'm over 100 but wondering to waste them on ret ready to level/quest.

What would you do?

I mainly act as AoE tank, letting warriors take over for MTing bosses, i can do it NP but no point in pushing if their gear is more suited to it. So i'm a bit of a BV stacker. Quiet want some more spell damage for when i'm going to 5 mans, but not sure where to get it (i swap ring and cloak to SD pieces) giving me about 650 holy damage, i'll still loose agro to my elemental shaman friend, usually get around this by getting the group to give me mana pots :P

Thanks for reading

You may need some avoidance and

IMHO you will feel that +def and dodge and to bo honest as for OT and heroic tank you are doing rly well with stacking SD and BV.

Shaman love Tankadins, but even with my Spelldamage and threat on Multi Mobs my Guilds best Elemental Shaman has to hold back even with Salvation.

He could pull aggro easily if he went at 80% efficiency. As could your Shaman.

I wouldn't change them for the world though. <3 my Guild Shamans.

Any DPS will steal your aggro. It is their job not to do it. It is your job to give them enough threat to work with so the boss goes down in time.

I would love http://www.wowhead.com/?item=30083 but we haven't progressed from lurker yet :( And even if we go to him and it drops it would likely go to a warrior MT. Also i live to AoE and the ZA one, and maybe the TK trash rings have the kind of stats i'm after.

I still have my http://www.wowhead.com/?item=29173 for when i need extra avoidance (such a tiny tiny upgrade to the neck of Jug i don't feel it's worth spending badges on) but having the hit and expert i like from the agro POV.

I haven't had a problem recently with defence, and have plenty of places i can pile it on if it becomes an issue if i get an upgrade.

I <3 my shaman too, he's nearly leveled a hunter now tho :( guess i'll have to boost him in kara etc soon.

What are your thoughts on the boots? Hate seeing + green when i look at my strength, makes me feel like a dirty sunderboy.

Figured i've got my 112 badges, and more coming in every day with running Hc Seth Halls for my libram/mount i figured i might as well get rid of my last warrior tanking item and get a decent HP, BV and spell damage boost with the http://www.wowhead.com/?item=33523 . Bear boss hates me, maybe i'll just make his into a static uncrushable set.

Got a tempest keep run this Fri so hopefully i'll get the ring &/or shoulders.
