In preparation for WoTLK, I have been creating my own personal gear list as to what is available for us tankadins in the expansion. I decided to put it up here as this forum has provided me with alot over the last year. Thought id give someing back. Enjoy!

Please feel free to advise if any corrections need to be made or any other items added. Also if you know the drop location of any of the items missing it please let me know.

This list, except for a few items, features DEFENSIVE (ie Defense Rating, Dodge Rating, Parry Rating, Block Rating, Block Value) stats gear only. The exceptions are related to gear featuring expertise rating and hit rating but no defensive stats (Apart from stam and strength). If u know of any other of these "grey" items please advise

Most interesting thing about shields so far: There's only a 600 armor difference between the level 80 blue shields and the best level 80 epic shield so far, whereas there was about 1000 between the best 70 blue shields and the SoID from Nightbane and another 400 on top of that for the ALD from Gruul.

Very nice list, this is something I've been thinking of compiling for myself, but have been too lazy to do yet... so thanks!

This is a great jumping off point for any of the plate tanks (and a good point for those non plate tanks for their rings/trinket/cloak slots) to start planning from.

Sticky so it doesn't get lost?

Too bad the wowhead tooltips showing the stats are blocked at work. I imagine this is true for many people. (Not that I check Maintankadin at work or anything. :wink: ). Wonder if it would look too cluttered to show the stats? Could make comparisons easier.

Tempered Titansteel Helm - crafted BOE (Blacksmithing) 1821ar/ 61str/ 162sta/ 46def

In any case, nice work!

Oh, and filling in some blanks -- the Valorous Redemption items are tier drops from Naxx25, and Heroes' Redemption are from Naxx10. Not sure which bosses drop which tokens, but it's a start.
