It's true that these days almost no one runs the level 80 non-heroic dungeons. Need a guild for that.And no, sorry, UP is not a good place for a tank to start out, half because if their gear isn't up to par (which is likely won't be) they'll take quite a bit of damage from both trash and bosses 2-4, moreso than most other heroics, and half because the Gauntlet has a lot of margin for error.

Which is why he wrote this:"And one last thing to note – I didn't say that a new tank should be brought to Heroic: UP. I said a tank that's followed the progression I outlined should be brought to Heroic: UP."

No, he did recommend it as a first HEROIC, he did mention a step system (which could also be argued over, and was) but he recommended UP as a starter heroic. Heroic UP should be one of the last Heroics you try before Heroic Occ imo

Sorry muffin, but you needed to do a little bit of research before commenting. The question that was originally answered was about someone who had the gear from Naxx, which is more than enough for UP. The problem was that he had gotten it as an off set and was now considering learning to use it. I believe UP is a good start. Especially if you need practice with LOS. The mobs that fear matched up with lots of usable corners makes the back end of this instance a good one. Besides, UP is fairly easy. The reason many do not find it easy is people do not understand a whirlwind means death to nontanks.

In my experience, there are people who will run the non heroic level 80s, and they are all level 75-79. And that makes getting http://www.wowhead.com/?item=36993 a bit tricky (which for a death knight in starting zone trinkets would have been quite nice, but I ended up giving up after carrying a couple groups through).
