Alrighty, let's take a look under the hood for a moment.

One of the first things I see is that you're only at around 96.2% CTC with no buffs. This needs to be about 5% higher depending on what food you use / elixirs. To close this gap, I would say you need to drop the the stam one in favor of a Puissant and the then change the Puissant in your relic to a straight Mastery.

Next, you need to enchant a few of your items; back, bracers and legs.

I see you notice your weak areas in gear, but other areas that need attention (in order of presendice to be replaced -- if I was gearing your toon): VP Bracers, Neck, VP Boots, Back. The reason I'm listing Back as the last that I would replace is that you'd be losing mastery and at the moment, you cannot afford that if you're wanting to get into raiding some content. The BOE Bracers and Boots can easily be acquired for (depending on your server) 600g - 2000g total.

Looking at your spec/glyphs, I sort of recommend you stop the Ascetic Crusader in favor of Focused Shield. Mana has never been a concern unless you're spamming Consecration and Holy Wrath on CD.

Thank you very much for your reply I appreciate it! I will look into getting the bracers/boots asap! Though isnt the hc version on the boots I currently have BiS for tanks atm?

Actually, taking a second glance, I wouldn't replace your boots. I dunno why I was thinking the raid ones did not have mastery.

But yes, the heroic version of the boots are BIS for tanking. However, the thing to remember is that our BIS for this tier was predetermined by Blizzard when they gave no other choices for each of the gear slots minus a couple. So when you look at a loot table and you see a tanking item, you can bet donuts to dollars that it's gonna be your BIS piece.
