Can we then remind you that you started completely wrong ? One of the problems of Protection are how screwed up the loot tables are. Unfortunately, you ended up in the that trap, and you're wearing a lot of the wrong items. It's not a RNG thing, you didn't properly adjust your Loot specialization.

Thus you have things like the Ordos bracers/shoulders or all the Prot Timeless pieces. For those, you should have been using Retribution as a loot specialization to get the right pieces.

Forget add-ons for a second, there's only 1 that's needed for tanking : Threat Plates. Rest is the same as any other role. What you need to do before you continue gearing/gemming or whatever is read this longish post :

It contains the gearing advice you need right now, before you make more mistakes and waste more bonus rolls/tokens/VP on things that will not help you.

Has nothing to do with add ons and everything to do with raid awareness.

Scroll all the way out. When an Unleashed Corruption spaws (the big adds that need to be tanked), Amalgam of Corruption will shoot out a shadow bolt that arcs over the raid. When that bolt lands, the Unleashed Corruption pops.

As you see the shadow bolt shoot out look for its landing zone and get ready to target and taunt.

Boom. You're pro now.
/target <enemyname>
/cast reckoning

Boom. now you're pro.
/target <enemyname>
/cast reckoning

Boom. now you're pro.


OOR.

This is the best strategy :

Norushen adds are highly telegraphed.
