The problem with the new protection boots is that it gives block rating, without block value. If you look at the progression of protection paladin gear, it starts up with lots of block rating and block value, peaking at Tier 5 set. However, after that, dodge start overtaking Block rating.I agree that 2.4 tanking pants is solid for boss fighting, and I'll be retiring my 2.3 blocking pants in favor of Tier 5 which is now going to be my Blocking/AoE tanking set. Likewise, the 2.4 paladin chest isn't a good upgrade from 2.3, so not many people will be buying that.As you mentioned, I'll be picking up the 2.4 warrior tanking chest to replace the Kara chest for my blocking set. Since my guild stopped running TK, I missed out on Tier 5 chest for that tanking set. The 2.4 warrior chest is a good replacement.One more piece of tanking gear that all tanks should considered is the new 2.4 tanking ring http://www.wowhead.com/?item=34888 . Loads of stam and lots of dodge and armor on top of that.
