Your gear is just fine for the Raid Finder. Heck, it's adequate for Normal, if you play well and hit your cooldowns at the right time. I'd take you.
Here's what you have to know as a tank in there:Morchok
: He puts a debuff stack on you. Taunt off the other tank when yours falls off. Or, don't. It doesn't hurt much. Run away or use Death Knight survival skills to survive the black phase.Zon'ozz:
Face the boss toward the raid until he starts to launch the ball. Then, face the boss away from the raid so he doesn't hit anyone but you with Psychic Drain. Repeat after the black phase. If you're clever enough to watch timers, hit a cooldown before Psychic Drain. It stings. Only one tank is required on the boss. If that's not you, chase the ball around and stand on the thing to make it explode a lot. Doing this greatly increases the damage the boss takes.Yor'sahj.:
He puts a stacking debuff on you. Taunt off the other tank when your stack falls off. Or, don't. It doesn't do too much damage. You can't tank the adds, so don't try. If you see a Mana Void (big blue ball) use Death Grip to yank the Mana Void on top of the boss.Hagara:
Your most important job: When she does Focused Assault, run away
by strafing sideways. She interrupts herself when she has to take a step. When she does her ice phase, run to the edge and watch the ice spike waves very carefully. Run away from them clockwise. You'll look like an idiot if you let them touch you and kill you. When she does her lightning phase, run to the NORTH and tank the elemental that appears there.Ultraxion:
When you get Fading Light, wait until you have four seconds or less on the debuff, then hit your Heroic Will button, or you die. When the other
tank gets Fading Light, taunt ASAP. Also hit Fading Light for Hour of Twilight.Warmaster Blackhorn:
THere are three waves of melee elites. Each wave has two elites. Swap off between them. Say, for the first wave, take a Dreadblade. Second wave, take a Slayer. Third wave, take a Dreadblade again (or vice-versa). Face the Dreadblade away from the raid, because it cleaves. Stack your target on the other elite or a drake to make the damage-dealers love you. Do stand in the big purple swirlies, so melee follows you there. The boss himself has a stacking debuff (Sunder Armor). Taunt off the other tank when yours falls off. Tank the boss near the front right corner, so ranged can be near enough to him to dodge Shockwave while they hit Goriana.Spine of Deathwing:
You'll tank either the Bloods or the Amalgamations. Try to get Bloods the first time you do this fight. If you've got bloods, just tank and kill them about 25 yards back from the front plate. If you've got Amalgamations, wait until they pop out of dead tentacles, then tank them up against the front plate. When the Amalgamation is at 15% health or so, and there are nine dead bloods on the "ground", drag the Amalgamation over the bloods until it's at nine stacks, blow a cooldown, and take it back to the front plate to die. When it starts casting Nuclear Blast, run away
to the back. Do this three times and win. Don't attack the tentacles.Madness of Deathwing:
At the start of platforms 1-4, move to the back. Tank the Mutated Corruption tentacle. Blow a cooldown when it casts Impale on you. Taunt when it casts Impale on the other tank (there should be only two Impales, but just in case). Tank the Regenerating Bloods when they appear. Drag them into the raid to get people's attention. Help kill the Blistering Tentacles on the fourth platform. On Phase 2 ("fifth platform"), help kill the Elementium Fragment tentacles, then tank one of the two Elementium Terror adds. Tank one
of them. You'll get a stacking debuff called "tetanus" that can actually kill you, and so will the other tank. Drag your add to the yellow bubble to make it stack more slowly, and mark your add with a skull. Use anti-magic shell to clear the debuff if it gets too nasty. If your add is dead and your stacks are clear, taunt the other one off the other tank to give him a break. You'll get two waves of Terrors, then the boss will die. You get a big green 50% damage reduction button on platforms 1 and 5. Use it for Impale and Tetanus.
Oh, and your next Valor purchase is Stoutheart Talisman
. It's best-in-slot and cheap. Then, the trinket, neck, and ring. Get someone to sell you Valor (BoE) boots and maybe bracers (the crafted bracers are a little better, yes). You can also get crafted legs which are a solid choice.
