I'm still resto and plan to be so for a long, long time.
However...I do have some questions for my feral friends. I'm a completist; I like to make sure I have the gear sets to cover any and every situation. I honestly hope they may the guild banks even bigger in WotLK as I'm going to run out of room. I'm already out of room. I have my PvE healing set (complete), my PvP healing set (incomplete), my moonkin set (almost complete), my feral tanking set (mostly complete) and my feral kitty set (complete-ish). I have a good set of gear for most of them, if they're not necessarily Karazhan or tough-heroic ready.
So, here's my question:
How should I gem, enchant and what should I switch out on my feral tank gear so that, if I am needed to tank something like a heroic or maybe even Karazhan, I can do so. Here's what I have gathered so far:
Head: Helm of the Claw
Neck: Strength of the Untamed
Shoulders: Junior Technician's 3rd Grade Shoulders
Cloak: Burnoose of Shifting Ages
Chest: Heavy Clefthoof Vest
Gloves: Gloves of Dexterous Manipulation
Belt: Tree Mender's Belt
Legs: Heavy Clefthoof Leggings
Feet: Heavy Clefthoof Boots
Rings: Delicate Eternium Ring
Trinkets: Arena Grand Master, Violet Badge
Idol: Idol of the Wild
All right, to point out the obvious: yes, my cloak has shield block values on it. To be fair, our tank did not need it when I was there to pick it up (as in the case of any of our instance gear, I only rolled when no one else needed it) and it's the only "tanking" cloak I could find.
Yes, I'm missing a ring. The one I use right now is a random "of the" ring.
Yes, I don't have bracers listed. I don't have bracers for my feral set. I'm not sure why, I guess I just haven't been able to pick any up.
So, for my feral friends, what are your suggestions? Good replacements that I could find, what gems I should socket, and what enchantments I should get. I'm not planning on making this set do much more than be prepared if I'm needed, so perhaps nothing too expensive, but I do want to be heroic-ready. At least gear-wise, of course!
