Regular instances are a cake walk. Some idiot pulls multiple groups, I can tank 7-8 mobs by myself no problem. I was a bit confident, then I stepped into heroic SP.

Now, I know SP as I ran it all the time on my mage. I know what hits hard, what should be focused and what fears, etc. First time I went in there with a druid healer with +1450 healing and he said I was too squishy. I never died, but it got close on a few pulls (mainly the 4 large lobster pulls). Second time I ran it I died twice, but the shaman was using rank 2 chain heal because he heard it was "more mana effective." After that he seamed to keep me up better, but I was still getting hit hard. Maybe we should have used some crowd control?

My question: Is there a huge gap between normal and heroic, and should I be feeling inadequate? What would you recommend I do, gear wise? Here is my armory -

I don't think it's updated since I did dailies, so my full set isn't there. Trust me, I don't take with an Oathkeeper :P

I'm 12.7k with kings, 12000 armor, 20% dodge, 16% parry, 22% block, 509 def. I typically use agility and armor pots.

you have pretty much the same stats as i do, yours are better. i tank heroic SP without a sweat, but i always choose my group to include 2 forms of CC for all the big pulls. still tho, some of those pulls are big and you end up tanking 2-3 at a time. i usually run with a massively geared healer but shes honest and she woulda told me if i was almost dying all the time. defenitely start bringing CC and it becomes all too easy

Thanks for the input everyone.

I've successfully tanked SP, Mech (no warlock), UB, Ramps and the first 1/2 of Kara by myself, no CC (except for a few shackles in the beginning of kara and moroes).

I'll keep adding to the list :P
