Great guide. I hadn't gone through it before, but you've validated most of my thinking that I did when going over Dirgen's and Petrus's lists. Great job!

FYI you have a lot of links to cata.wowhead.com which no longer returns tooltips via the javascript integration.

Eww, didn't realize that. Thanks for the heads-up.

I'll try to go through soon and update them to the now-current www.wowhead.com versions. Thanks.

Should the Helm of Easeful Deathhttp://www.wowhead.com/item=58098 be in the Head List?

Also, should Flynn's Favorite Chestplatehttp://www.wowhead.com/item=63831 be added to Chest; Belt of the Ferocious Wolfhttp://www.wowhead.com/item=62384 be added to Waist; and Baradin Footman's Tagshttp://www.wowhead.com/item=65175 be added to Trinkets? I think the Baradin Footman's Tags is the Alliance version of the Baradin Grunt.

By the way, thank you so much for all the work you've put in on this. Your info confirmed some tanking issues I was slowly realizing and made sense of some things that had me completely flustered.

Any special reason why you don't rank Necklace of Strife on your list?
It gives a higher CTC at the expense of some threat if I'm not mistaken.

Best in slot neck/cloak now come from Alakir heroic. They added neck/cloak drops in 4.1 with the same random enchants as other gear from throne of the four winds.

not sure if you would want to, but you could include the 1h mace trash drop from ZG with haste reforged to mastery and also where would the ret t11 pants fit in the list do you think?

Hey Vexryn, huge work thanks a lot, all my guild uses your post as reference for the BiS tank gear for pala, DK and war!

just a word about the new loot table on Al'Akir, he now also drop T11 helms
as well as a BiS amulet: http://www.wowhead.com/item=69828 , wich is clearly better than the Rage of Ages from Nefarian
and the heroic version aswell

another little word is that the heroic BoE items dont exist IG, sadly!

otherwise your list is perfect, thank you again

Updated with a few missing items, and finally fixed all the Al'akir loot.

Will be doing LOTS of updates in the coming 1-2 weeks with everything for Firelands!

Thanks, Vexryn: your efforts are very much appreciated. It's good that you are updating for this patch; if, as seems likely, it's the last new tier before MoP, it's going to be a useful resource for quite a while.

Yes, thanks for the update.

My sad panda is that your site is blocked by my work firewall so I cannot see it during my lunch break unlike info here on MTadin (apparently, the "failsafedesign" in the URL protects it from almost all firewalls) but I guess I will be looking at it at home.
