So I've been leveling up this character and (slowly) working on some rep so that I can purchase a few of the vendor pieces in order to get ready for Heroics. I really have no intention of raiding right now (maybe sometime in future), so that's why my hit is set to 6%...just working on getting expertise up to cap now. The thing is, I'm really nervous about starting heroics. I've tried a few of the normals and things went pretty good....and I've had a really positive tanking experience leveling up this toon as well. I guess I'm just not sure how much of a "step up" heroics really are from normals.
One thing that's kinda different about this xpac, is that not all heroics have a "normal" version. So there's really no way for me to get a feel for these dungeons from a tank's perspective beforehand. What would you guys says is a "comfortable" ilevel for these heroics? I just don't want to go in there and get pulverized and/or screamed at by the healer lol !
Also, with 5.2 around the corner, currently super-geared DPS will be even more geared. Is this something that under-geared tanks should be concerned about? Should I be expecting threat issues after the patch goes live? I'm guessing that as the disparity between ilevels increase (Tank vs DPS), the easier it becomes for trigger-happy DPS to pull aggro off the tank....but maybe this is not how it works - I'm not sure.
