First of all i would like to ask you all to go to my Armory page on EU - Sylvanas under the name Casterly.
I have recently joined a new guild after reaching level 90 slightly over a week ago and have managed to get myself to ilvl 465 (as of writing this topic) and have been tasked by my raid leader to achieve an item level of 470-471. As with the Valor cap and the Reputation requirements there isn't much of a place to receive much greater gear than i currently have that gives the stats i desire as a protection paladin unless i raid. I have asked my raid leader if i could potentially sub in on a farm boss to see if i am happy enough tanking raid content, and perhaps to prove that i am ready to raid with them.
Before i continue i would like to clear the air as to my gearing pattern, I read on elitistjerks that it is beneficial to prot paladins to achieve the expertise hard cap, so i am trying to achieve that without losing too much survivability. I am happy to say that i can pull relatively fluently without hesitation in heroics without healers saying that i am either taking to much damage or saying to use a cooldown every so often.
My question to you is this, do you think i am at a point of being able to raid with my current gear, and if not are there any items which scream out to any of you as a massive need of an upgrade.
Thank you in Advance,
P.S. I will be editing this topic as i change gear around as it is a new week and i do have the potential to change a few pieces.
