Do you want to tank instances while leveling in WotLK?

Here's my recommendation: Get what's better for you now. You'll have a better/equivalent chest from instancing/crafting on your way to 80.

I'm planning to level as ret and tank instances on the way. It's not like 5-mans are hard, and they ought to be tuned for a lot of people who aren't already in epics, thus at least the first ones will be easy.

At 75 when we get Shield of Righteousness I might switch...

I have a similar question. I'm sitting on about 100 badges and my chest is the only blue I need to replace (Jade Skull Breastplate, my second one actually, I sold the first one then the patch made it actually useful so I got it again). I've heard the Chestplate of Stoicism described elsewhere in this forum as the best mitigation chest in the game, but since the patch wow is on easy mode and it seems unlikely that I will do anything to warrant the mitigation (ZA at the most). I was thinking of Shattrath Protectorate's Breastplate instead for increased threat and damage and blowing through low 70 instances when wrath hits.

Get the Chestplate of Stoicism. Your threat should be fine either way. The extra dodge will increase your Blessing of Sanctuary mana generation.

That's a good point, threat really has become a non-issue. Maybe it'll last me a while longer in northrend too... :-) Thank you!
