Shoulders are one of the few slots that you cannot really plan to get an epic equipped pre-raids. Boots are the other slot of note.Both of those are technically available (Tempered Titansteel treads crafted via BS, and Wapach's [sp] Shoulders of Solidarity is a BoE world drop) but there are better boots available in heroic Old Kingdom (Terrace Defense Boots) and you probably won't have several thousand gold to spare for the shoulders. If you do have the gold though, they are probably worth it for the massive chunk of Defense and Expertise they grant.Look for ilvl 200 blues for those slots. They'll be first priority for upgrading when you step into 10-mans. If you have really bad luck and are still wearing them in 25-mans, the Emblems of Valor yield two best in slot items for progression tanking: t7.5 shoulder token and Kyzoc's Ground Stompers. However, it'll take 100 Emblems of Valor to acquire both, which is well over a month if you're only partially clearing Naxx 25.
