Where is the best place to acquire epic tanking gear? I know for heroics or Kara I need to be in epics to do my job effectively,but to get the epics I have to run heroics or Kara.....sorta a catch 22. I had planned on doing BG & arena,but was told pvp gear wasn't good for tanking.
Any help is much appreciated.

dont need epics to get epics. Just get your 5 man / quest rewards.

run kara in blues, get badges and hit up the badge vendor. kara and badge vendor items>>>heroic items. only the sun eater is worth the horrible current state of heroics. actually i've done 3 full kara runs and one partial, got KD on my 2nd go.

only the shield or one to two pieces are acceptable(good stam and armor and fills in for a small amount of defense via resilience). definitely go for the shield.

To this day I still have no idea why you can't craft shields as an armor smith.

We need epic crafted shields!!!
